Jesus is Condemned, Crucified, and Laid to Rest The utter loneliness and excruciating pain of the Atonement begun in Gethsemane reached its zenith when, after unspeakable abuse at the hands of Roman soldiers and others, Christ cried from the cross, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou […]
During Holy Week, Holy Thursday they honor.. Jesus washing the feet of his disciples Read scripture here: John 13: 1-7 by J. Kirk Richards Then after this is when I focus on Jesus in Gethsemane quite a bit with my girls. This is the beautiful and heart wrenching part. Which I know my steps are […]

I do love you baby girl. I might wish I could fast forward my life a full year until hopefully you get out of this 18 month phase of yours. But you kind of also are the best: I know, poor Shae in the background, right? She wasn’t happy about something that morning.
I am not in a Things I’ve Loved Lately mood. I’m in an attending Stake Conference with a 2 and 1 yr old was really painful mood. Also something really upset me badly a couple of weeks back. And I am having a difficult time bouncing back. So lets see if I can do this….it’ll […]
