I can't believe its been 2 weeks since I've sat down to write in this! Sorry to all of my followers who are sadly dissapointed (LOL). Ok, so here's a recap of what's been going on.

Home church is going well. Rich does a great job at preparing our lessons each week. Now, we just need to find a way to keep the kids busy so moms can pay attention. But, that's the case no matter where we worship. The kids faces are hilarious when they take a sip of the wine. Willow looked back at me with her fance all scrunched up, "that's yucky, Mommy." Soo cute!

This past week, we had a great discussion on why its important to listen to the voice of God, and not rely on the voices of those who have passed on. Its something that I did as a younger person, and something that one of my sister wives still hangs on to. Being a Christian household, we must hold fast to the Scriptures, and follow the leading of God.

I started work at a Catholic/ Opus Dei boarding house. I'm cleaning and cooking for 8 unmarried Catholic men. Hate it! I should be at home cooking and cleaning for my family of 9. But, the good news is- I just got hired on with Buy Buy Baby!!! Its temp to start, but I have no doubt that I will prove myself worthy to stay on full time :-D

I've really enjoyed reading the comments that each of you leave on my blog. It is good to know that people out there are really reading these random mumblings of my mind. I assure you, there is more to come. Tomorrow's task: rearranging bedrooms to make room for everyone.

On a more solemn note: Rich and Ann face the Bishphoric tomorrow night for the excommunication hearing. I know both of them are dreading actually hearing the words, but we will stand strong as a family as we follow God in a new direction. I will miss our congregation at the LDS, but I know that God has a plan and purpose for this happening. Selfishly, I hope its to rock the boat a little.

Till next time, God bless you!


  1. Did you have to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner for these men at the Opus Dei boarding house? Do you clean it too? This seems like a lot of work. How did you find a job like this?

    I pray that everything works out for you and your family. I hope you don't have to stop this blog--I'm really enjoying reading it.


  2. When I went in, I was responsible for cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming and mopping floors, as well as preparing dinner for that night, breakfast for the next morning and dinner for the 3 of us working. Oh yeah..blast. I found it on craigslist.

  3. That sounds like a lot of work, especially when you have your own big family to take care of. The job at the Opus Dei sounds like it would be better for a single person without a family of their own to care for. I'm glad that you found another job.
