This talk has meant a lot to me and Shawn. We listen to it often, and have learned something new every time. A perfect description of what we believe grace means.

My night went from a wonderful delightsome family night, to a feeling of being wracked with fear about not being able to protect my family . . . in a matter of seconds.
I was sick to my stomach for hours thinking about how many times I had talked and talked with the kids about what to do if someone ever showed them inappropriate pictures. I never thought that someone would accidentally be me.
So this topic of inappropriate and pornographic pictures has been on my mind for a few weeks. I wish there was a way could shield our children from ever seeing anything we didn't want them to see. Or that we lived in a world where these things disn't exist . . . but they do. And no one is exempt from having these nasty images pop up and threaten our children's innocence.
An amazing lady who has studied the science of the brain, and how different pictures effect children is doing a free webinar with my sponsor for our online event coming up in March. Her name is Kristen A. Jenson.
So any mothers or father's, or grandmas and grandpas who want to learn more, hop onto their webinar in a few weeks!! Tuesday February 9th at 10:30am-12.

I used to think that grief was an event, more than a process. It is so interesting to talk to others who have had their own journey of overcoming a loss and the different processes grief can take.
It is always crazy to me how grief works. One day you go about like normal, and the next one little trigger sends you into a tail spin. No matter how many years have passed, or healing you have done, grief can still peak its head into your life.
Please remember you are never alone. There are so many people who are fighting similar battles. Grief is not just about death. We start a grieving process anytime life doesn't go the way we planned. Sometimes it is merely the loss of a story of the life we always thought we would live. Grief doesn't have to be lonely.
I always learn so much talking to these ladies, I love that their grief has brought them closer to the Savior. Thank you for your examples of faith and the wonderful insight you bring into my life.

The twins performed this weekend in their school talent show. I am so excited that they share their gift of music in such a unique way. They compiled two of their favorite songs into this duet. I love that even with the microphone malfunction they didn't even break. They make me smile.

Here is a sweet article the Standard Examiner in Ogden wrote about attending my last conference. They even made a little video of clips from the conference and our interview.
