Today has been a pretty bad day.  My Husband left a few hours ago for Iraq.  I miss him already.  I am so grateful to have the Gospel, without it I would be so lost.  



  1. Stay strong, positive and busy and it’s surprising how fast time goes by.

    Pass along my regards to your young man and let him know the majority of people support him in his efforts and obligations.

    Take Care,

  3. The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy (Martin Luther King Jnr). You have a husband who has demonstrated the essence of manhood – doing the right thing in a time of challenge and controversy.

  5. I can only imagine what it must be like to have a spouse in Iraq. My prayers are with you and your husband.

  6. My hubby left in July. He has deployed before but this time we have 4 kids not 3 and the youngest one is 2. Plus we have 4 cows one of which could be giving birth any day now. Oh did I mention I am a homeschooling Mormon Mama? Yep the cub scout pack meeting is at my place this month. So if you need a good “pick me up ” laugh every now and then come on over to my blog and see how others in your situation are making it day by day.

    You will end up laughing at me and my various situations in day to day life. I cry and others laugh….it’s okay I know if the shoe were on the other foot I would be laughing too. Right now I just don’t want to be doing this all alone. Sometimes I go back and re-read my daily adventures and actually laugh at myself.

    Hang in there and know that when we pray for our “Daddy” at our house we ALWAYS include all who are serving. I have had to remind my kids many times that “Daddy” isn’t just serving our country, he is also serving Heavenly Father and that is such an amazing thing and a wonderful example to others around him.

    Our prayers are with you!

  7. Jay,

    Thank you!!!!!


    thanks, For me the first couple days are always the most difficult. I like to curl up and feel sorry for myself. 🙂 I get back to “normal” usually within a week. I hope this blog will keep me busy and keep my mind off the worrying. I’m such a worrier, I hate it. Seriously though if I didn’t know that I have a wonderful Heavenly Father taking care of him I don’t know what I would do!

    Thanks to everyone for your prayers!!!!!

  12. Its not fair that your husband has to make another tour of Iraq. I hope he is in one of the less dangerous positions (if that is possible).

  13. “Hello All” this is Steffielynn’s husband, I would just like to take a minute and thank everyone for your awesome comments and your prayers. It really means a lot to know there is support from “true americans” back home. Thanks again.

    I would also like to thank my Amazing wife who is holding down the fort why I’m gone. With out her and her support it would not be possible. She is pretty awesome.

    And now a little about the Church. We share the same conversion story (almost), we got babtized on the same day, but the church has forever changed our lives. Before joining the Church we were lost in a sense that we knew we were missing something. My wife and I both realized it was church. We lived in Colorado, California, and now Tennessee. We went to a lot of churches and there was always something not quit right about the churches we attended.( not saying they were wrong or evil) just something missing. After being taught by some awesome Missionaries we started attending the Church and from then on we have been hooked.

    Many may leave comments on this blog about how the church may or may not be true and that all makes for good conversation but the bottom line is you can not arguee FAITH. So with that being said, I wish all of you the best.

    oh yeah and I love you Steffielynn,
