My Wish for My Daughters


My 25-year-old self cannot believe I am writing this post. She would disagree with me whole-heartedly. She would say that my thinking is archaic and insulting.

A Couple’s Gospel Study Plan


Have you ever heard counsel or a suggestion in church and thought, “Yah, that’s never going to happen.” That’s kind of how I feel when I hear someone say that couples should study their scriptures together.
