a tribute to Kristin and Amanda

Happy Easter! Thank you to 250 people who spent your Friday evening with us in Logan, and for the 300 who squeezed into an alternative space in Lehi the next morning.

Gratitude, the magic elixir

Kristin’s on vacation all week, and I’m on vacation all next week. She left me the Perfect Suitcase as a Christmas gift. I’d been telling her I had a great one for weekends, and a giant one for 7-14 day trips. But I didn’t have one for 4-6 day trips, which most of mine are. […]

Gratitude, part 2 of 3

From Liz Gilbert’s book, Eat Pray Love: “I keep remembering one of my Guru’s teachings about happiness. She says that people universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you’re fortunate enough. But that’s not how happiness works. “Happiness is the […]

Gratitude, making your own happiness, part 1 of 3

My good friend Matthew left formal religion as a non-believer. This was a big problem for his wife, who consequently dumped him, moved away with his kids, and remarried. He counseled me a lot as I was newly divorced. I sought that out, because his divorce was amicable and he refuses to be miserable. What […]
