Hey! My oldest son just turned 5 and we had a Minecraft themed week for him! We made a Mincraft Cake and ate colorful pasta. Decorated the house in green, white and black streamers. He woke up to a big creeper present in the living room! One of the presents he got was a Minecraft torch! My husband tried to make his fifth birthday super special for him. We had friends come visit us throughout the week but had the main celebration together as a family.
I made this 13″ by 17″ Minecraft Printable. At first it was just for fun but then I used it for Primary singing time as a “Armor of God” lesson. The little guy is suppose to represent a LDS Missionary but you can create your own person here. I put magnets on mine so they can stick to a whiteboard.
Ideas to use these printable:
- Armor of God Lesson: Ephesians 6:7 – 17, D&C 27:15–18
- Pin the Armor on the Minecraft Person
- Teaching kids programming by creating the formulas for the armor on a whiteboard.
Mountains!!! Life is full of mountains to climb.
You know what? it’s been a rough couple of weeks!
You know when stars align and you feel like you can conquer the world? Then the next minute the world seems to come after you and everything seems to align to cause you misery?!
Well, I just want to say that even during hard times, I know that God lives! As I pray and read the scriptures everyday. I have seen miracles happen even in the hardest of times. God allows hard things to happen to us so we can grow and become stronger. It also helps me to be humble and rely more on His power.
I have so many things to be grateful for! Why do I even dwell on hard things?
Yes, there are good times and bad times… Every time I experience something sad or bad…. I just try to have a little more faith in God that something good is just around the corner… and guess what? It always works! In fact, it seems to always work out better than I thought it would.
If you’re having a bad day or a hard time… here’s a virtual hug for you! And just you wait… the view is always more amazing when you get to the top of the mountain!
Here’s to the journey to the top of many mountains.
It’s been a while. I’ve been happily engaged in photography and missionary work.
Since I’m not on here very often anymore, I just wanted to let you know places that my work has been featured on lately:
General Conference: Father’s by Elder Christofferson – April 2016
Gospel Topics: Emergency Preparedness
Our Family’s Journey to the “Mormon Disneyland”
“Because I am a Child of God” Music Video
I love the gospel so much! I am so grateful to be able to serve the Lord with this spiritual gift He has given me of photography. He has truly magnified my talents as I have been willing to serve Him and I am truly humbled and grateful for this experience!

Hey!! So I have a lot of ideas of things to write about but I feel like I’m going to take some time to fix up my blog. I have a ton of broken links and pictures.
Our family is doing well. We have been just living life and busy as ever.
Dallin finished his PhD last summer and started medical school last August. So far it’s going well and time is flying by.
Our little baby girl is grown big. She is over 3 months old now. She is sooo cute.
I’m busy being MOM and wife of a medical student! My oldest son is in pre-school for 2 days of the week then we do home school the rest of the days with my middle son who is 2 years old.
My oldest son is picking up reading really fast! I can’t keep up with teaching him how to read.
I’m still taking pictures for our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I’ve been on a church service mission for almost a year now. I can’t believe how much my photography has improved this year. I really feel like my talents in photography has been a gift from God.
I love sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ through words and photography!
I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church of God on the earth today. If you have any questions, please let me know!
We are going to do a digital Christmas card this year again! It’s just easier and it simplifies our Christmas.
This year we welcome a little girl named Emily. 7 lbs even and 20 inches long. We love her so much!
Here’s our past years Christmas Cards:
This is the 2015 Christmas video from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called “A Savior is Born”.
Holy cow you guys! I fell off the face of the planet. Sorry about that. It’s been really busy traveling, taking lots of pictures for my calling and helping my husband edit his dissertations. I’m just trying to keep up with my kids, cleaning and laundry. There really is a time and a season for everything.
To every thing there is a , and a to every purpose under the heaven… Ecclesiates 3:1
I wish I have more time to post on here but it’s just not my first priority. I’ll do the best I can because I have a lot of pictures to share with you all.
I recently participated in the a photography competition in Utah. We had to take pictures of 10 different categories and submit our best 30 pictures within 48 hours. It really pushed me to my limits and helped me advance my skills in photography.
One of my most proud category came from “Architecture.” We traveled to Park City to take picture of this historic barn.
This blog just celebrated our 5th anniversary because we started this blog right after we got married and we just celebrated our 5th anniversary! Over the last 5 years, we’ve posted almost 200 times. It has never been super consistent but I blog in the seasons of life when I can. Thanks for sticking by!

I was called and set apart a couple of weeks ago to be a Church Service Missionary Photographer of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. What does this mean? Well basically… take pictures where ever I go and submit them to be used in Church media. So you’ll see me and my kiddies with a camera all the time. Some people from create.lds.org recruited me back in October at LDS Tech conference. Before that I was struggling to figure out where in the world to take my photography hobby… I felt like this is the best way for me to learn more about photography, officially start a real photography business and share my testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ at the same time!! I’m going to need all my friend’s help to fulfill this calling! Yes, I really do get to wear this name tag…
