Can You Picture It?

“Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them.

What an incredible trip to Israel I had! As we get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving, I can’t help but be thankful for the opportunity to visit the Holy Land and experience the very places and peoples that our Savior experienced.

Do You Truly Trust?

Do You Truly Trust?

I’m preparing for the trip of a lifetime…I’m leaving for Israel the day after this gets posted! To think that I will be experiencing in person the land, the people and the history that I’ve been reading about is still hard to believe.

Happiness Versus Joy

Happiness Versus Joy

For quite a while, that song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams was extremely popular to the point that people were making their own videos lip syncing to the song. It is a catchy song and I think everyone wants to be happy right? We do stuff we enjoy, spend time with people we like, and get […]
