The Living Christ Memorization: Update (and 2 week review chart)

Our family finished memorizing “The Living Christ” document over fall break. Some of us are still getting the words in our heads, and so until December 25, we will be reviewing each paragraph–one paragraph per day–as well as reciting the entire document in 2 week

FINISHED! My experience training for and racing in an Olympic distance triathlon

Sarah and I finished our first Olympic distance triathlon on July 14, 2018. It was a major milestone for us both and came as an answer to lots of hardwork, a little bit of pain, and many sincere prayers. I had a very emotional night 

“I love Grandma! This is hilarious!”

Rebecca transcribing Great-Gma's journal

“This is literally the best thing in my entire life!” Rebecca is in the middle of transcribing her great-grandmother’s journal, and she’s cracking up at the description of a man who great-grandma met: “a very quiet, shrewd, calculating, completely self-centered but not cocky man, not to be trusted, saying only what is necessary, no more, no less, and speaking complete untruths and underestimating the other person.”

Grandma N. WAS a discerning person. While her husband was an influential businessman, I wonder if those who worked with him had any idea of the influence she had on her husband! Never underestimate a good woman, especially one who keeps a daily journal! (We do wish she had a little easier-to-read handwriting.) Grandma and Grandpa N. called each other “companion,” meaning their eternal companion. Rebecca says, “I love that she says that.”

I love that we are getting to know her better through this journal!
