About Me

I was born in Butte, Montana and raised in Dillon, Montana on a large cattle ranch. Actually, “raised” is a stretch because my family moved from the ranch to the city when I was only 8 years old.  I was the youngest of 5 children and I felt ripped off that my parents picked up and moved just as I was finally old enough to do 4H like my older siblings. We moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. When people hear I am from Utah they ask…are you Mormon?  Yes I’m a Mormon …..a five generation Mormon.  I have friends from every religious domination and I love and respect each of them for their beliefs and values, just as they do mine.

I am a mom and a grandmother.  I love being a mom, but I must be totally honest…being a grandmother is a lot more fun!  My husband Scott and I have been married 30 years ….we have 7 children, 4 daughters and 3 sons.  Four married children and two adorable grandsons. Being a mother is no doubt the hardest job in the world and the most rewarding job ever!….well, most days:)

In September of 2011 and again in November of 2012, I traveled to India with the Global LifeVision team.  We taught a very detailed goal-setting program, called Ideal LifeVision at a university in New Delhi, and then spent a week with the street children of Kolkata.  I went to India thinking I was going to change others lives, but discovered it was my own life that was changed. The experience was beyond words PHENOMENAL. (see India posts or click here to see my India video)  Next on my list is Africa!

I am currently working from home as a special projects assistant to Chad Hymas, a motivational speaker/author.  The Wall Street Journal named Chad one of the ten most inspirational men in the world.  I count my lucky stars to be part of a team helping Chad share his message with the world.

The highlight of my week is volunteering as an advisor to the Special Needs Activity Program (SNAP) for mentally challenged kids and adults.  We have about 100 special needs kids attend our weekly activity.  They are angels on earth.

The biggest lessons I have learned from being a mom is this; ….they grow up too fast,  enJOY every stage! …..and once they are married they like you again!

  2. Hi, I must admit that I’m one of those people who came here from the viral story about the shorts. 😉 I just wanted to thank you, your caring husband, your sweet sons, and the rest of your family so much for setting an example for the whole world. Please thank them each for me personally.
    I hope you never regret this situation -“going viral”- and realize that you really do have the power to change lives with your story.
    I hope your daughter knows that she is a BEAUTIFUL daughter of God and one day realizes that she doesn’t need to follow the fleeting trends of the world to feel accepted or socially respected. (In fact, higher standards almost always make you more noticeable and admired, even if your peers aren’t willing to openly admit that.) I promise that this is true. I testify of it. I’ve seen it and I live it every day because I am only 19 years old. I know how hard it is to be tempted by the styles and trends of the world, but every day when I rise above those temptations it is constantly rewarding.
    Thank you so much again for standing up for what’s right in a loving way. I hope you take the time to read this post and feel my sincere gratitude in it. May God continue to openly bless you for this. =)
