Choose to Walk the Divine Path

Craig {https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2018/10/divine-discontent?lang=eng}. What a powerful talk. I must have been half awake when I listened to it, because it all seemed to… Continue reading Choose to Walk the Divine Path

Just Because We Can- Doesn’t Mean We Should

There are so many of us who have cried endless tears waiting to conceive a baby and give it the ultimate gift as we partner with God...that of the gift of LIFE. And I fully believe… Continue reading Just Because We Can- Doesn’t Mean We Should

Chicken Enchiladas

This is a recipe from my childhood.  My mom makes great enchiladas!  And these are the  BEST when you use left-over turkey from Thanksgiving.  This is a quick dinner if you already have some cooked chicken or a rotisserie chicken that you can shred and some precooked tortillas.  I love Tortillaland uncooked flour tortilla's.  You… Continue reading Chicken Enchiladas
