Every family has problems and challenges. But successful families try to work together toward solutions instead of resorting to criticism and contention. They pray for each other, discuss, and give encouragement. Ezra Taft Benson

Come Ye Children of the Lord - Hannah style

Two-year old Hannah is singing to the dog, Toby.  Toby is a two-year old border collie we adopted from an animal shelter.  Amazingly, according to the shelter paperwork, he and Hannah share the same day, month and birth year.  He is very gentle and patient to allow her to sit on him like that.

General Conference in the Conference Center

When the children were small, I promised them I would take them to the conference center to attend their first priesthood session in person.  The girls quickly asked for the same treat.  Since Wesley recently turned 12, and Emma the year before, we went to Utah for General Conference this year.  We had fun meeting up with the Flake cousins and spending time with them.
