Welcome to my site.

This is my retreat where I go after a hard day’s work of driving our nation’s highways in my semi-truck to write down my thoughts and experiences which may be of interest and assistance to others.

After decades of teaching, mothering, sewing, cooking, and vegging in a peaceful secluded village, I passed the inevitable half-century mile marker on the road of life.  Seemed like a good time to learn new things since I wasn’t ready for a rocking chair.  So I went truckin’! 

My highways, past and present, have taken me uphill and down, through sunshine and tempest, traveling sleek freeways and rugged terrain.  As I travel, I learn, grow, and achieve, mile by mile to a better me.

The Suicide Paradox

Seriously? You want to know what I think. Are you sure? I was recently contacted by a Utah journalist for a comment on the subject of suicide among FLDS and ex-FLDS. I expect my contribution was solicited in order to provide a small splash…

Who Am I?

Who am I? What do I stand for? These days if you want to see sparks fly and get punched in the noggin', you talk about religion or politics. Most people have pretty strong opinions about God and Donald Trump, not to mention a gazillion more…

I Am a Better Person

We should be able to say that because of our association with one another, "I am a better person having known you." Years ago I heard this story which found a permanent spot in my memory. A Spanish girl named Elizabeth told the story about…

Example and Precept

My father had lots of fun ways to teach lessons. One day he put a bowl of candy on his desk. Sure enough pieces of candy began to disappear throughout the next several days. One night he came home for prayer time and brought the bowl of candy…
