Disaster, Hope, and Charity: The Santa Clara/Virgin River Flood

A thunderous crash could be heard in the distance as a home collapsed and crumbled into the rushing waters below. Several people were standing at the edge of a hilltop in Santa Clara, Utah, watching their valley being destroyed before their very eyes. The torrent had eaten away the dirt of the riverbank and the foundation of the house. With no support, the home fell into the rapidly flowing river and was swept away downstream.

The Santa Clara/Virgin River flood in St. George,…

My Belated Post About Mother's Day

I hope everyone had a nice mother’s day. I did; I was able to celebrate both with my mother and with my children. However, as much as I love my mom and my children, that's not what this post is about. I feel more comfortable expressing my love in a less-public way. Instead, I just wanted to share a three-bullet point ramble about my thoughts on motherhood.

• A week after Eli was born we had his bris. Our family and friends were all gathered, and it was time for the ceremony. So my… Continue

Rejection Letters

After sending out numerous query letters regarding my first YA novel I am pleased to say that I finally received my first rejection letter. I now feel like a true writer and have to admit I exclaimed in joy when I opened up the email on my phone the other morning and read that my writing had been graciously received and even more graciously rejected. My husband thought there was something wrong with me but I didn't care. Some one out there had taken the time to read my query and even though my… Continue

Robert Parker Sixkill

Sixkill rules! I want to take a different tact with this, as I am huge fan of the author‘s work. Okay he passed away, this is his last work, yes, I am sad. But instead let’s celebrate this last work for the fun and frolic that it is. No Hawk, total bummer, but he seems to have had a plan with that, maybe the new author will take it to new heights, a new resurgence with a fresh approach and set of eyes on the characters. I have read every Spenser novel , yes every one, and have enjoyed each…

Before a month or so ago, I'd only heard about blogging on television but I figured it was something the popular kids were doing who already had a numerous amount of friends. But now, here I am, drowning in this new virtual reality of sorts, joining every network and group possible because I'm so excited about blogging I just can't help myself. Now I just need to chill out and find the time to do some serious reading...…
