Strength in Stories

A Reason To Do Better

I don't believe in coincidences.  Last year on President's Day, my sister-in-law signed up to feed the families at the Ronald McDonald house here in Salt Lake City.  I was so excited about that I asked if we could join her family!  So we went.  And it was such a neat experience.  I highly recommend… Continue reading A Reason To Do Better

Honoring A Hero

This Wednesday I'll be doing something a little different.  Instead of sharing a story, I hope to connect with you to create a story of your own.  This past December, I came across a wonderful family that donates items to refugees.  During December, the items they collect are pillowcases.  They had to be 100% cotton,… Continue reading Honoring A Hero

A Plea for Baby

With technology the way it is now, when you get an ultrasound in a pregnancy they can tell you exactly how many weeks and days old your baby is.  It's simply amazing to me!  When I felt so strongly that we needed to have a sixth child and that she would be a girl, my… Continue reading A Plea for Baby

Learning from the Past

Today's story doesn't come from someone who is alive anymore.  I was thinking that because of Memorial Day, I would share about one of my ancestors.  This story was written by Chloe Welch-Monk, a great grand daughter of John Coulam.  John Coulam is my third great-grandfather. "John Coulam, son of John and Joanna Ward Coulam,… Continue reading Learning from the Past
