    (originally published on Deseret News) I know you don’t get it. Social media is not your thing. You have a group of 15 guys who mean something to you. You text them a couple times a year, get together every now and then, check out their family on a Christmas card and your life feels […]

    I loved being involved in Teacher Appreciation Week at the elementary school last year. It is one of my favorite volunteer opportunities because I think teachers are amazing and it is so much fun to be able to spoil them for a week. I couldn’t find much on Pinterest, so we had to start from […]

  • 05/11/17--14:55: Let’s Be Stone Catchers
  • I have been thinking a lot about stones lately. At my grandmother’s funeral, my uncle told of a time when he couldn’t wait to share a juicy bit of neighborhood gossip with his mom. Her immediate response was, “People who live in glass houses don’t throw stones.” His little boy heart was hoping for a […]

      Dear Mothers of Today, Let us start by saying we are in awe of you. Being a mother now seems so much more difficult than it was when we were mothers. We didn’t have technology to monitor or social media to worry about, neighborhoods and parks were safe places to wander, allergies were rare, […]

    Every year seems to go by more quickly…we are already at the end of school and I wish I could freeze time. This year has been especially wonderful…amazing teachers, good friends and boys growing into more of the men I hope they will become. At the end of the year, we always get our teachers […]

      I love youth sports. I have 4 boys and they play them All. The. Time. For the most part, win or lose, it is something they enjoy and grow from. However, last night, it was ugly. My son decided to start competition basketball very late in the game. He is on a team full […]

      Technology rarely blows me away. In fact, oftentimes it seems to make life more complicated than it was before; However, the relatively new app, Our Pact, has made managing screen time, smart phones, and everything in between so incredibly simple and has given me the peace of mind that is often absent when it […]

    As I have read about and pondered the events that happened Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, I was struck with the responsibility we have as parents to teach our children to love, to break the cycle of hate that is so prevalent today, and to respect and learn from differences instead of fight against them. My […]

    Middle school. There are few words in my vocabulary that elicit such a visceral reaction. Reading them together takes me right back to sweater vests, Girbaud jeans, bad bangs and a burning desire to fit in. A few years ago, as I watched my oldest walk up the hill toward junior high, it felt as […]

    Is there anything more meaningful than serving together as a family? We are always on the lookout for great service opportunities that impact those we serve but also help our children feel the value of serving, helping and reaching outside themselves. Projects that foster this kind of connection can be difficult to come by, especially […]

    Holidays at our house are pretty low-key, until December rolls around. I have always been crazy about Christmas. Growing up, it was truly the most magical time of year when our home and life felt incredibly full. With a large extended family close by, there were parties to go to, service projects to complete, meals […]

    As people have been posting about their New Year’s Resolutions, I noticed a trend. Lots of you want to cook more for your family and successfully menu plan.

    Instagram is booming. It’s simple to use and fun to keep up with. At face value, it seems incredibly harmless, and maybe even a safe site for kids. It is easy, private, and full of pictures! But, after a few years as an Instagrammer, I have decided that those feelings are fairly naive. Only you […]

      The other day, my seventh-grade son showed me a text from a girl who is a friend. It said, “On a scale of 1-10, how cute am I?” Luckily, my relationship with my oldest is pretty tight, and he often shares the little and big things going on in his life. He brought me […]

  • 02/26/18--20:59: Can We Just Be Honest?
  •   Being honest is hard, but being honest about important things is the hardest. I’m not talking about the once every six months bare your soul Instagram post about struggling with perfectionism, the funny story about your “naughty” child, or the tell-all photo confession about leaving your dishes all night in your sparkling farmhouse sink. […]

      Adobe Image via Deseret News We started this “kid with a cellphone” journey a few years ago, and I have since found myself pining for pioneer times when families read books by candlelight and bonded over farm chores. Alas, it is 2018, and technology isn’t going anywhere, so we are cautiously embracing it and […]

    My mom has a little curve on the tip of her nose that she affectionately calls, “The Cullimore Hook.” She also has wrinkles on her face, a flat chest, a great smile and incredible legs. She is capable, kind, smart, low-maintenance and beautiful. In today’s world, full of over-processed, over-done, over-glammed out women, I will […]

      Maybe they were new, had a rough teacher, got in trouble, were put in the lowest reading group. Maybe they couldn’t remember a math fact, sat alone at lunch or got picked last at recess. Maybe they are weird or slow or shy or awkward. Maybe they wore the wrong clothes or old shoes […]
