How I Cured My Irritable Bowel Syndrome Food / Personal

After struggling with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) for over five years now, and trying every method I could to heal it, I think I’ve finally found a permanent cure! I’ve written about IBS before, and some of the tests, diets, and methods I’ve tried. And I’ve had a few periods of reduced symptoms that have lasted up to 3-4 weeks. But otherwise, it’s typically been diarrhea 2-3 times per week. Until now!...

Blissful in Barcelona Barcelona / Spain / Travel

From the very first day we arrived in Barcelona, life for our family suddenly felt exquisitely harmonious and balanced, and remained so for the entire two month duration of our stay. We all felt quite blissed out in fact! That’s the kind of magical effect Barcelona seemed to have on us, and it continues to infuse our memories of the place with a very special...

Making Mormonism More Good Personal / Spirituality

There is a lot of good in Mormonism. There are teachings of love and compassion, of service and productivity, of humility and integrity. Within its community, there is a sense of belonging and safety. And I see much sincerity in its people. However, I’m concerned that too often, the ability for members to live by these good principles is handicapped by other teachings in the church that...

Making Work Meaningful Entrepreneurship / Goals / Spirituality

When I created Music Teacher’s Helper ten years ago, it was to solve a need that I had in my own life — to better organize my student lesson schedules and payments. I decided to turn it into a “business” for two reasons. One, because other teachers expressed interest in it. And two, to provide for my family without being dependent on an employer. I’ve learned a lot since...

Sojourning in Southwest England Southwest England / Travel / United Kingdom

Welcome! We’re glad you’ve decided to click over here. This is Jennifer writing today. I invite you to make up a pot of your favorite brew, and relax into your most comfortable nook, as you journey with us on our road trip through Southwest England. As a word of warning, our modus operandi as it relates to traveling, tends to be a very spontaneous, fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants type approach, so be...

English Hospitality Sussex / Travel / United Kingdom

Have you ever been welcomed into a friend’s home with such kindness and generosity that your heart practically bleeds with gratitude? That’s how we feel after spending 12 days at the Clark family’s house near Brighton, England. We first met the Clarks in Bali last year. Their kids are similar ages to ours and we hit it off so well that we spent several days together during their two...

Lazy in London Family / London / Travel / United Kingdom

We were so grateful to have booked an apartment for 10 days in London because in the past two months, we hadn’t stayed in any place for longer than a week, and in the past two weeks, we hadn’t stayed anywhere longer than two nights! So, we were quite worn out and ready to stay “home” and recover for a while. This worked out rather well because London is an extremely expensive city, and we helped keep costs down by resting for several...

Land of the Leprechauns Ireland / Travel

We’d dreamed of visiting Ireland for years, with its green rolling hills and charming old castles. We booked a one way ticket in case we decided to stay a while, but ten days ended up being plenty for us, mostly because of the weather, which was colder and cloudier than we preferred. There was a light drizzle of rain almost daily, and we kept our jackets on most of the time. Our...

Of Families and Mountains Family / Idaho / Travel / United States / Wyoming

From my beautiful sister’s wedding in a campground near Pocatello, Idaho, to beautiful drives through Yellowstone National Park and the Teton mountains near Jackson, Wyoming, and ending with a family reunion at Bear Lake, we had a busy but enjoyable time during our last week in the USA this trip. It started with a flight from Seattle. We’d driven down from Vancouver the night before, and had accidentally...

Vancouver, British Columbia Canada / Travel / Vancouver

As we drove into Vancouver, Canada, our first impressions were that it was HUGE!!! High-rise apartment and office buildings flooded the skyline, traffic was jam-packed, and so many people were walking around that it felt like we were in a big Asian city again. We’d expect to see that many people outside if there were a festival or concert ending, but it was just a regular weekday afternoon. We...
