With the Holiday stress behind me, I look at the New Year with optimism.  I have renewed hope that we can continue on our Journey here, and continue to grow and learn. 

During the little break I thought a lot about the people I have met here, and how their views have influenced and changed me.  I have learned a lot from everyone. 

From BR and EJ I have learned that it is possible to love people even when their views are very different then mine.  The 3 of us were able to form a very sweet friendship, one that is very special to me. 

 From Coventry I have actually learned the most.  I have appreciated his insight and involvement here.  He made things very interesting.  And I now know, there are good people out there, that are good just to be good, and I think that is pretty amazing. 

And then there are all my sweet Mormon buddies, who rescued me from the crazy Anti’s 🙂  Without them I probably would have torn my hair out 🙂

So I am opening the blog back up for discussion.  But just know that I am renewed and ready!!!!  My love for the Anti’s is fixin to explode!!!!!!!  




  1. YEAH! Now this is a happy new year.

  3. I saw you are going to start doing your family history and wanted to offer you some advice on a program that is available through the Open Source community freeware.It’s called “Gramps”.and should save you quite a bit of time and money. If you are a Windows or Mac user, don’t be intimidated be out of trying a linux distro. This is the best one a begginer could ask for. Ubuntu can run off the live CD w/o even installing it! Or some like the dual boot method. Either way you can get a free CD sent to your door for free and try it for yourself.

  4. I am so glad you are feeling refreshed! You were on on my mind all through the holidays and I’m glad you came out the other side okay. Your sense of charity and purpose is amazing! Keep it up!

  6. Glad to see that your posts are back on-line – Hope to be able to contribute to the conversations – I came across on the church’s website that we should start blogs and teach of Christ –

    Not sure if this link will work – if not just go to

    Peace and Grace

  7. Hi! so glad to see your blog is up and running again. Also, I wanted to tell you that because of your influence and a video that you posted earlier, I actually wrote “Love is Spoken Here” on my dining room wall above the archway that leads from that room to the living room. It’s unbelievable how much difference having that little reminder makes. I’m going to take a picture of it and post it on my blog; I’m also going to make a few comments about what an awesomely terrific young woman you are and how we can never underestimate the influence for good we can have on others. My family thanks you!

  8. Steffie ,

    A quick question 🙂 You believe the LDS church is true ( the only true church ) and you have had a spiritual witness .I don’t believe its what it claims to be and I don’t believe some of its teachings are correct and never had that spiritual witness like you have had.

    I just wondered who has the greater responsibility between us if the LDS church happens to be what you say it is and what it claims to be ? ( Luke 12:48 ).

    Will more be required of you and other LDS members by The Saviour?
