The great Swami Satchidananda always said that we only need to have faith the size of a mustard seed. Such faith proved itself to us in an unusual way.
God made us to be awesome, but it doesn't always feel that way does it? Problems block our path and trap us. Often, one of our biggest obstacles isn't outside of us, but within us.
Be original, be you. Be the person you want to be and this love for yourself with empower you to be proactive, positive and even humble! The change you want to see in the world begins in you. Happy Valentine's Day!
As Christians, we are directly called by Jesus, through the beatitudes, to take care of the less fortunate. So often we make excuses to avoid this. When was the last time you regretted giving someone a gift?

Do it. Shine your light. If you don't, you could greatly diminish someone else's ability to find their own light.

You could be the change this world needs to see to heal itself- don't deprive us of your light.
Questions about living in a cult are among the first that I often get when I am asked to speak to book clubs or at conferences. How can I, a highly educated woman who has spent many years living outside of Utah, defend such a cult?
Need more love in your life? While many of us focus on romantic relationships what about one of the most important relationships in life? Your FRIENDships -- loving, happy and healthy ones.

I hope someday my children will share with their children our particular love story. Mark and I met as teenagers, as counselors at a summer sleep-away camp, and we were immediately smitten. The rest, as they say, is history. This year we'll celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.
