Delta Airline Cookies: A Complete Guide

After a few flights with Delta, I was hooked.  Those little gingerbread type cookies are worth coming back.  Not only are they delicious, it’s like they were designed for the in-flight Mom.

My Personal Battle With Skin Picking

My Personal Battle With Skin Picking

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always picked at the skin on my hands.  That isn’t the only place. I’ll also take after my lips or whatever scrape isn’t healing quite fast enough, but by and large my hands are my worst victim.  You may find this hard to believe, but it’s some...

How To Use Canvas To Manage Family Scripture Study

When all 3 of my older children began homeschooling, only the oldest was able to go to my school of choice because the courses weren’t offered to students below 6th grade. To make sure my other children were on track, I chose to enroll them in a school that fed into the one I want...

5 Quick Tips For Hiking The Narrows: A Surreal Adventure In Your Utah Backyard

I had a great idea for making meal planning simple.  First, I would go to Pinterest and find a few 7 day meal plans for 1,200 calories per day.  The calorie number isn’t essential to this story, but it happened to be my search criteria.  The problem with these meal plans is that half the...

Does My Baby Secretly Communicate With The Dalai Lama?

I was trapped in yet another airport over the holidays and got to watching a special about the Dalai Lama on CNN.  As I watched, I couldn’t help but notice a spooky similarity between my 1 year old boy (affectionately tagged Bubbie) and the Tibetan Buddhist leader.  As everyone around me griped about their delayed...
