December 2015


  Do-overs I recently shared a story from my past with a youth group – one more attempt to pinpoint those critical times when the best life lessons are learned.

Last-minute, local holiday shopping

Last-minute, local holiday shopping The recent snow that’s blanketed the Bitteroot Valley is beautiful and gives me another reason to stay close to home for last-minute Christmas shopping. I whole-heartedly support our Main Street businesses and hope you will too.

Influence of Families

Influence of Families On rare occasions, our kids get to stay with their cousins on the ranch when Brian and I need to be out of town. After our last trip to Rexburg, Idaho, I came away with such an appreciation for the good influence aunts and uncles can have on a child’s life.

All Because Two People Fell In Love

I fell in love with my husband, Brian, for many reasons. Up until now, I didn’t know that one of those would be his mad skill at refrigeration installation. He swept me off my feet with intelligence, wit, humor and attention to detail. I also loved his spirit and willingness to serve others without hesitation.
