almond oil lotion

Homemade lotion with water and oil

I decided to make a lotion that has distilled water in it — so it is lighter than my body butters. Butter is butter, and I don’t love body butter on my face. I need a light lotion for my face, so I gave this recipe a try. This one is light, but still moisturizing. Since water and oil do […]

Life With Father 1947 E1428857937720

Life with Father gets baptized

“I can’t take a cab to heaven!” exclaims Father when he finds out that his wife, Vinnie has called a cab to take the entire family to church where Father will finally be baptized. It’s a look into upper class New York in 1890 — Clarence Day wrote stories about his father, “Clare” which were published in the New Yorker […]

Why we give ordinances

I have often wondered why we make covenants and receive ordinances before we really understand them. I don’t remember my baptism preparation, probably because I was eight years old. I do remember my temple preparation, I was 26. I read a book by Hyrum Andrus, Principles of Perfection, before going to the temple. My husband and I took the temple prep class, […]

Bloodmoon April 4 2015

Bloodmoon 2015 in Virgo

I got up early this morning to catch some views of the bloodmoon on Passover, April 4, 2015 and read what the scriptures have to say about the moon being turned to blood. The science of a lunar eclipse is explained here. Revelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet to the Church, at Kirtland, Ohio, March 7, 1831: And before […]

Passover, Good Friday, Blood Moon

There are three events to celebrate — Good Friday today, on April 3, 2015 marks the day that Jesus was crucified, sundown of April 3 marks the first day of Passover, and then less than 12hours later, there will be a total lunar eclipse. Take your pick, or celebrate all three. I wrote earlier about the blood moon tetrads, but […]

Funny or not on April Fools Day

It’s not often I celebrate April Fools Day. I hate not telling the truth. I like to believe what people tell me. But of course, I question. I think things over. I try to get to the truth. I don’t like joking around about the truth either — so no April Fools Day jokes, no saying something and then calling […]

The Passover E1397451080425

Moses and Easter

Passover. Moses and Easter. I remember the day I finally put it together — the meaning of the word Passover — how the angel of death passed over the Israelites who had dabbed lamb’s blood on their door post. It began to make sense. The blood of the lamb saved the people. Kind of strange, but quite symbolic. The lamb without blemish […]

Unrolling the Scrolls – Hugh Nibley

Unrolling the Scrolls – Forgotten Witnesses by Hugh W. Nibley, 1967: Yesterday I was in Disneyland, and that gives you different views of things. One thing was very impressive: all these exhibits you see about the structure of the universe and their accompanying historical views are drawn from just one source. We have but two sources: written and unwritten. By […]

TheLanfranco Giovanni  The Council Of Gods   1624 25

Joseph Smith and plurality of gods

Two rather irritating neighbor kids informed my children — “You guys think you’re going to rule your own planet.”  That was about 20 years ago. In Irvine, California. The door was open; time to explain some things to my kids. It’s a strange notion, this idea that Mormons believe they can become Gods — and one which the LDS Church has […]

Learning to Listen

I have often heard that women like to vent, talk about their problems, disclose what’s going on, that kind of thing. But, I have also heard that women don’t really want their man to “fix-it”. They just want to talk about it. And they want someone to listen and commiserate with them.   I think I might have something wrong […]
