Today's Features

  • Jarret Boyd always has a good column, but the one I really enjoyed was a couple of weeks ago when she wrote about visiting with her friends.

    It is so important to keep in touch with friends we have made over the years, but it isn’t always easy. Actually, Facebook has helped and I am so glad for that. It keeps us informed about what is going on with them, but the personal touch is truly the best.

  • Well it’s that time of year again; the season of our Savior’s birth. Christmas is a time of shopping, parties, plays and dinners with family and friends. Wow! What a busy season!

    I don’t know about you, but sometimes I come out of Christmas worn out. Is it possible that in all the busyness during this time, we’ve developed a rushed and complex approach to Christmas? It’s possible that in our push to do all that we do, we find ourselves not only exhausted, but also somewhat empty on the inside.

  • I am sorry that I had to cancel our pulled cream candy class. But, our instructor had a sudden serious illness so we could do nothing else. I am planning on re-scheduling after the holidays. This will be a nice and fun wintertime indoor activity. Watch my column and the Extension Homemakers newsletter for the new date.
