History Lessons of Minidoka

Hubby and I explored Idaho history this past week. Several years ago, the historical museum of Idaho closed for a couple of years so they could completely redo the place. We visited for the first time and were amazed at how updated and modern it looked. There were lots of hands-on activities and short clips […]

A Life of Journaling

Have you ever kept a journal or written in a diary? Do you ever go back and read them? I hope you do because it’s a good way to see how God has worked in your life. When I was a teenager, I got a five-year diary for Christmas. For the next five years, I […]

Spreading Literacy

This past week, I attended a fundraiser for a local facility that provides tutoring in literacy, English, and GED tests.

Dressing Up

Last month, my friend Mary Ann and I were discussing how people dress to go to the stores (namely Walmart) or other public places. Many seem like they never bothered to get out of their pajamas or combed their hair. As we talked, I looked down at my yoga pants, tee shirt with a picture […]

Good-bye 2019

This week marks the end of the Twenty-Teens decade and the beginning of the Twenty-Twenties. I’m having a hard time getting my head around the fact that 2020 has arrived. That date seems so…space-aged! Weren’t we supposed to have flying cars and interplanetary commerce by now? When I was a girl, I watched the Jetsons […]
