While putzin’ around looking for images to put in a post commemorating Memorial Day, it occurred to me I should mention some of the people in my personal life who’ve made a huge difference, and contributed to who I am today.

I had never stopped to count the number of men in my life who had served in the military, and each time I thought of someone, another person would come to mind. I’m certain I’m not the only one who can say this, and that’s what makes our country so awesome! Think of all those you personally know that’ve contributed to the freedom we now enjoy! (more…)

‘Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.’ John 15:13

Today we’re taking a brief break from all things Mormon in order to bring attention to a few facts about the important holiday America is acknowledging this weekend: Memorial Day!

As early as BC 431, ancient Greeks were bedecking graves in commemoration of those who died, along with military heroes of the day. America’s not alone in her dedications as we see countries all over the world doing the same.

Today we’re diverging from the normal routine – yay!

The video has nothing to do with Mormonism. and everything to do with respect.

I found this on one of my good friend’s FB page (Kathy Baker), and was so impressed I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share it with our readers. Thanks to Kathy, the makers of the video, the coach, and the reason for the video…the Vets.

May God bless them abundantly, and may we all remember why we’re so blessed. None of us would be able to do what we’re called to do if it weren’t for those who sacrificed for us.

With Love in Christ;
