Praying for…Trouble? – By Contributor Mama Kathrine

When you pray, you don’t normally expect to get a bad head cold. It’s not usually the way to detect answers from our Heavenly Father. But maybe sometimes it is? I’ve been thinking a lot about the new Disney movie, “Moana,” especially since we’ve watched it for our family movie night five weeks in a row…!

What I Do – By Contributor Mama Kathrine

“So what do you do all day?” An innocent, conversational question. But this time, I was speechless.   We had invited some friends for dinner, a cute newlywed couple. The husband we’d known for some time, and we enjoyed a great evening catching up together. We got to know the wife and learned all about their plans for the future. After discussing education, children, and careers, there was a...

This year as I’ve studied parts of the New Testament regarding the Savior’s entry into mortality, the story of humble and faithful Mary, the sacred mother of Jesus Christ, has spoken to my heart. Her wisdom and willingness to do hard things inspires me. This year it’s been easier to imagine her as a real person, one with worries and...

Become as Child: The Magnifying Power of Christ – By Contributor Mama Emily Perkes

Through my recent research I have had this idea of “magnifying our efforts through Christ” on my mind. I was taught this principle again in the most unlikely circumstances: It was a really, really hard morning. My patience was gone before I woke up and a lot of stress was weighing me very low to the ground. Everything was a battle–full on battle–with my kids and I knew it...
