My mom wanted me to make this so she could frame it and give it to her Beehives. We printed 20 on various shades of cardstock. She found some frames at Walmart that have a matte for two 4×6’s. If you take that out, the opening is 11.5×4.5, and that’s the size we used. And […]
This is one of my favorite quotes, as written by Mormon in a letter to his son Moroni. Mormon was a noble warrior, leader, and strategist. But he was also a great spiritual leader—one who stayed close to the Lord even when it was so unpopular. Moroni 8:16 I speak with boldness, having authority from […]

C. S. Lewis is a favorite of mine. The quote above is from Mere Christianity. The picture below is at his gravesite near Oxford. If you’ve never read beyond the chronicles of Narnia, I recommend you start with The Great Divorce or The Screwtape Letters. This is a slight shift in gears. I plan to share cool quotes like […]
