About Me


I’m a mom of three, who blogs for fun, posterity, and therapy.  I seek for the divinity in motherhood; I try to share it when I find it, and I try to laugh when I don’t.  I love naps, long walks, good shoes, milk chocolate, a little sarcasm, bubble gum, a good veggie avocado sandwich, scriptures, sunshine, my patient husband, and my children (especially when they’re sleeping). If you’re curious about my faith, I’m a Mormon and I believe in Jesus Christ; I’m happy to answer any questions you might have about how I live my religion.

Best things about motherhood:
  1. “Thanks, mom.”

  2. Holding hands

  3. Watching them sleep

  4. Hearing them pray

  5. “I love you, mommy.”

Worst things about motherhood:
  1. (Crash) “Oops. Sorry mom!”

  2. Potty training (finally graduated)

  3. Sleep fantasies

  4. The daily witching hours from  4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

  5. Shopping and other public appearances
The three reasons I am a mother: I realize that they are all growing up now, which might make me unqualified to still host a blog called Diapers and Divinity, but I’ve been blogging for many years (since 2008) and the blog name just stuck. I still want to point out the divine in everyday mothering.
And here’s me with my other baby, my book, Covenant Motherhood, released March 2013.

Covenant Motherhood is available at Amazon.com, Deseret Book, and Seagull Book, and can be found at most LDS booksellers.
