More Holiness Give Me

In fast and testimony meeting a sister bore her testimony of what she perceived to be a great spiritual battle waging in our time. All around, she said, the adversary threatened the spirituality of God’s children- and she wondered how we might more effectively wield our swords of the spirit; adorned in the armour of […]

An Ensign to the Nations, a Light to the World

I’m so excited to be studying from the Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley in Relief Society this year. For the first time, I’m flipping through a manual of lessons that I actually remember first-hand.

I wondered if it was something they did to keep them from thinking about more important things- […]

ETCH-A-SKETCH

Thanks to my wonderfully talented friend, and up-and-coming star of interior design luxury, Jade, I got to scam on the soft opening of the Mayfield flower show at Sketch- which by the way is my new happy place. It’s arguably the most time I’ve voluntarily spent in the restroom… Because I suppose it’s hardly a […]
