A Child's Christmas Story

A young girl tells the story of Jesus' birth and her vision of the world in a touching, heartwarming rendition of this tale as old as time. When I did the production video for the Twist & Shout Christmas Concert last week, this was the conclusion to the show. The story was so astounding that I had to recreate it for all my friends. Enjoy, and Merry Christmas.

American Honor, American Disgrace

Last Saturday, May 21st, I participated in the most awesome light ceremony at Mount Rushmore. The Veterans of the crowd were asked to come down and retire the flag for the evening. I have never been so honored in all of my life. To be at such a remarkable place...a symbol of what America should be...and participate in the sacred act of reverencing our Flag was an incredible experience.

Fast forward to yesterday, May 27th. I was never so ashamed or embarrassed in my fellow man. I walked into Rexall Drug in Montpelier, Idaho. This business had a sign in its window stating "We Support Our Troops". I purchased nearly $100 in books and asked if the business gave military discounts. The cashier went to ask the owner. I was scolded for asking for this discount. Who is the military that they should get special discounts. Between government taxes and high prices no one could afford to give out discounts. His son was military and he didn't get discounts. I calmly explained that many businesses gave discounts to military personnel. I also stated that all I did was ask. I then turned my attention back to the cashier and asked how exactly did that establishment support the troops.

Chasing Twilight Contest

Hi, Bloggin' Babes.

I'm running a Twilight-themed contest on my blog through the month of June.

There will be daily prizes, trivia, and a virtual road trip to Forks.

I have some spaces available for sponsors, if you're interested. You need to provide and ship a Twilight-related prize.

Or, you can just come play!

Wow Life Gets Crazy

Seems like forever since I've been on this blog. With starting my own business (Valor Publishing Group) and being politically active (too much to mention) and being fully ensnared by my sister's performance group, (Twist & Shout) I scarcely have a second to myself anymore.

Donna Goff, one of our blogger babes, thought it would be a great idea to create a Facebook group for us, feeling that it would be an easier way to communicate. She's going to create the group tonight and then we'll get invites out to all of you.

In the meantime, spring has finally come to Utah, hallelujah, and I hope I start to see flowers blooming soon. Fingers crossed anyway.

Happy Spring everyone. We need to get together soon again. It's been far too long.
