Coolest Show on TV


I found a really cool TV show.  It’s premise is that everyone has a story.  And, although it calls itself “The Ultimate Reality Show”, I do not think of it as a reality show.  It is actually a great show!

The host travels the country and knocks on people’s doors until he finds someone who will talk to him on camera and tell the story of his or her life.  He tells 3 or 4 people’s stories every episode.

The stories are as diverse as the people who tell them, filled with heart-warming experiences, life-changing events, sometimes great sadness, or incredible joy.  But every one of them has something we can learn from.

Which makes perfect sense.  Every person is of infinite worth, a child of God.  So we all have much more in common than that which separates us.

It’s kind of a fun show, that can tug at our heart-strings, but is always inspirational and uplifting.  It is appropriate for everyone – you do not have to be concerned that anything crude, inappropriate, graphic, or in poor taste will ever be shown.

The name of the show is Story Trek, and it is on KBYU.

And I love it!  🙂

Thank You to My Family


I attended the “Time Out For Women” conference in Denver, Colorado this weekend, compliments of my beautiful daughters (which includes daughters-in-law!)  🙂

They all got together, bought my ticket, and gave it to me for Mother’s Day.  So I’ve had 5 months to anticipate attending this wonderful event!  And they all went with me, so it was a family affair.  Even my oldest granddaughter went because they had a “Time Out For Girls” conference going on at the same time!

This conference is put on by Deseret Book and done in various cities throughout the United States each year.  It is a wonderful event, with inspired speakers, wonderful music, and making, and renewing friendships.

It is all about helping us appreciate being women, laughing and sometimes crying about the things we go through, and encouraging us to hang in there and not give up.  It reminds us that though we come from varied circumstances and backgrounds, we are all daughters of God and He loves us and has a plan for every one of us.  We find that others are going through the same types of experiences we are, are struggling with the same types of challenges, and we gain strength and hope from the trials they have overcome.  We see how important little things are, and we are reminded to always turn to our loving Father in Heaven for help and strength throughout our lives.

You walk out of there feeling energized, inspired, and wanting to do better in your life.

Thank you, my daughters, for this wonderful experience!
