The First Ever SALT LDS Women’s Retreat

Spiritual serendipity. That’s seems the most fitting way to describe the first ever SALT Retreat. Elise (in the center above) was the enlightened mastermind behind the best, uplifting and inspired day. She was a missionary in our ward in Calgary when I was in junior […]

Keystone XL: Easy Oil, Tough Crowd

I’ve been at home for two months now. I just got back from a two week trip to Utah and Disneyland, a trip I was worried about going on, but I came back feeling more like myself than I have in months. I’m feeling more […]
