Some UPLIFTING News
Whose feeling the need for some good news? I am! After a few weeks filled with news about Ashley Madison, abortion videos, horrific live shots, and campaign season starting – I'm ready to spend some time immersed in something UPLIFTING! If you're with me – come with me!
Jeanette Herbert, Utah's First Lady, is holding a conference here in Utah, in just a few weeks – and YOU are invited. (although there is limited seating, so as soon as you read all the info, get registered ASAP). A conference called, UpLift Families Parenting Conference will be a fabulous night out for anyone interested in strengthening their family. Imagine sitting with your friends/spouse/new friends and enjoying a yummy dinner, watching a host of presenters talk about all things parenting and family. Short, uplifting snippets of presentations (think TedTalks) will play across the stage for a couple of hours while you enjoy a meal in a beautiful setting like Thanksgiving Point. You can see it, right.
And guess what... all of this for ONLY $25/per couple. Not per person. PER COUPLE. Ok, like hamburgers at Crown Burger will cost you that much, right. But even better, I've got a coupon code for you that will save you $5.00 (and when you use this code it will let the organizers know you're with me so we can be seated close to each other – AH!) Let's do it guys!
We love our families, we love date nights, we love inspiring messages! Let's go!
Here's all the details:

I grew up in a home rich with family heritage. My mom loved genealogy and knew how to breathe life into dusty documents and color to faded black and white photos - my mom told me stories.
As a grown woman with five children of my own, I've tried to do the same. For years I did it through scrapbooking. But it didn't take long to realize that it wasn't my artistic skills my children really cared about. They never stopped on a page and said, "Mom, you matched that paper to my shirt - perfectly!" Nope. What they did say as they leaned across my lap, pointing at photos is, "Tell me the story!" "Tell me mom about the day I was born... Tell me mom about the day I cried when everyone sang me happy birthday... Tell me mom about my grandma and her garden..."
Don't worry if you haven't done it forever, just start today. The consistency and cumulative effect of one good question - just sharing one story a day, adds up.
