This ia a beautiful slide show presentation of Mark Mabry's photographs (Reflections of Christ). Music is from the Reflections of Christ CD. These images were part of an exhibit that was on display at the Arizona Temple Visitors which I had the opportunity to see in person this past April. It was breath taking experience.

There must be something we are all learning in the daily tasks we do (well, I hope there is). A refiners fire, a small one of sorts. It's in the doing, daily doing, a test to master our things and our space. A place for EVERYTHING and everything in it's place. (Wouldn't that be great!)
Thank you Lisa - I Love It!!

Having a child with mental illness and behavior problems, telling me everyday that they hate me and how stupid I am, can be discouraging. I really can’t “do” anything right for this child.
It’s a daily battle from the morning until I get this child to sleep, which can be as late as 2:00am. Getting this child to school is an all out fight. Even though this child is so bright, talented, and has an amazing testimony. I know it is a battle for them too, with mind, body and spirit.
Is my battle any harder then others? NO, I know many suffer with challenges much harder than mine. My heart and love goes out to you. I guess I am asking for understanding and love. We do not always see the hurt and struggles of others. Let us be aware, sensitive and kinder to each other.

Clovis, CalifThis picture was taken in Dec 1982, Donny and I played Joesph and Mary and I sang a song for Mom's RS lesson. Later that month on Christmas Eve Donny asked me to marry him. :-) (we look like babies!)

The damage wasn't as bad as it could have been. But still what is the attraction to the scissors and little girls’ hair? (I know my boys have done it too) There seems to be this power almost uncontrollable. Out of all the things they could choose to cut it’s the hair that gets it. Well, at least the hair does grow back!! Lookin' good Lindsay!

The work to go anywhere is quite a feat. Think about how much time and effort it takes to go well, anywhere.
Shower, hair and makeup x the girls I have and the WWF take down to get the boys to take a shower is a sight to see. The rule is No one can shave on Sunday morning; they take all the hot water. So that is a no no. You would think some of them could shower the night before but “no way”. If we do all shower, there is another load of towels to wash. By the way I buy only white towels (two each person) so I can bleach the heck out of them. You would think they could hang them up to dry, but that doesn’t happen either.
When we finally do make to the car with everyone dressed and ready to go, it is an accomplishment. That’s after the fighting about that someone has someone else’s shirt or skirt on. What can you do?

We are full swing of the Fall Ballroom season. This weekend was the Timpview Thunderball. Everyone did a great job. For all of those people who ask me about watching the girls dance, coming up on Nov 14 &15 is the BYU Dancesport Championships at BYU in the Wilkinson Student Center. My girls will be dancing off and on both days, but most of the big events and finals happen on Sat afternoon & evening. Come join us for some fun and cheer the girls on.
Katie & Austin winning quick step & swing
