How to find happiness

I just watched a video online and it really hit me on how to find happiness in this life. In the video Calyann referred to a scripture:

and he inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the heathen; and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile.

Book of Mormon: 2 Nephi 26:33

Calyann said pointed out that no matter what you do or who you are God (Heavenly Father) will always love you and always be there for you.

In the video Calyann said to read a chapter or two in the Book of Mormon and it will bring happiness to your life. I know that when I need happiness on my life simply reading the Book of Mormon will bring happiness to you too. The wonderful thing is that the Book of Mormon is available online and you can read it anytime at :

Here is the video to see how the Book of Mormon helped Calyann find happiness:

“I heard a SNAP”

Alyxibeth was jumping on the trampoline and John came from behind and “stole her bounce.” Alyxibeth collapsed and said she heard a snap in her leg. We went out to the and she was cradling her leg. Amie called Jacob and he came over and put a splint on her leg. We took her to the ER the next morning for X-rays and a splint. We have an appointment on Monday for her cast.

Being so cute

These three came and stood by the van they were so cute I had to take a picture. Klaus just got a hair cut.

Today is Alyxibeth’s birthday. She is seven today. We will celebrate her birthday tomorrow because Emalie is flying home from Utah.

We are all sad with the passing of Grandma James last night. It was a surprise to us all.

Try something different

So after all the kids had turns on Grandma Jo’s four wheeler they wanted me to have a go at it. I wasn’t sure I wanted to, but then had the thought “why not, do something fun every once in a while.” So I hopped on. Just then I felt Lynn wrap her arms around me. Man I should have gotten on earlier! That makes me want a four wheeler if Lynn is going to ride behind me like that.
