And He Went Forth Ministering Among the People

July 04, 2017  •  2 Comments
You would think that having done this just 18 months ago that it would have been much easier this time around...not so much. Just like it was with Noah, it felt as though my heart was plucked from my warm body as I watched our boy with a personality larger than life vanish from my sight as he left for El Salvador/Belize via the Guatemala MTC. I am...

Mission Accomplished

May 31, 2017  •  2 Comments
I can’t believe our Christmas morning surprise of 18 years has graduated from high school. Levi has always been an inquisitive individual – he loves to learn about the deep laws that make things work in both science and physics. He has great plans to study and become a bio-medical engineer to help others have a better way of life. I am certain he w...

Levi will serve in the El Salvador San Salvador West/Belize Mission. He will enter the mission training center in Guatemala on July 5 and will remain there for 6 weeks while he continues t...

Levi's Mission Call Imminent

March 09, 2017  •  37 Comments
Levi's papers were submitted last week, and he is anxiously waiting in anticipation to find out where his call to serve a full-time mission for the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be. I thought it would be fun for him to let everyone guess where they think he will be called to serve. If you simply add a comment below with your...

Thanksgiving in San Diego

January 16, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
My oldest brother and I were talking in September during our commutes and decided that we should meet in San Diego for Thanksgiving to shake things up a bit. The idea quickly turned into reality - we found a home to stay in that slept all 9 of us comfortably (except for maybe Levi, but we're just preparing him for his mission) 50 yards off of the b...

Levi's Turn - Senior Pictures

October 26, 2016  •  1 Comment
It really is amazing to me how time never seems to stand still. Every time I turn around another year has come and gone and I find myself scratching my head and asking, "where did the time go?" I had another one of those moments the other day as I was driving to Boulder, CO in search of a place to take Levi's senior pictures. "Really?", I asked mys...

The Silent Guardian (or this one's for you PJ)

July 09, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
We recently had the opportunity as a family to participate in an open house and dedication for a new stake center of the Brighton Colorado Stake. There are some remarkable stories that took place in the planning, purchasing and building process of this wonderful building. As the church continues to grow in Eastern Colorado it was necessary for a ne...

Trip to Montana

June 17, 2016  •  2 Comments
It seems like most people talk of going to Hawaii, Mexico, Costa Rica etc. for vacation where it is warm and has beaches. While there is nothing wrong with beaches and warmth, our family prefers to break tradition and do other things for vacation - like stay in Montana!;) Since Levi's back hasn't been doing well and we are working to find a resolut...

Finally, it's beginning to feel like spring

May 13, 2016  •  1 Comment
After a winter that seemed to last forever with several late-in-the-year snowstorms, it's finally starting to feel like spring - mostly. Since Tamara had a late night at school yesterday the kids and I decided to grab some dinner and eat it at the neighborhood fields. Once we finished we decided to play a little Frisbee for a good hour. I think Lea...

Leaving with Gratitude

March 07, 2016
Yesterday was one of those anticipated days in the making, but clearly one that I could never really prepare for. My emotions were everywhere as I was released after serving as the Reunion Ward bishop for six wonderful years - words are inadequate to describe my thoughts and feelings. I will forever be grateful for the time that I had to spend with...
