Today was focused on two topics – breaking stereotypes of women in media and reducing our sugar intake to fight obesity.

Robert Redford and Respect for Nature

Saturday night my husband and I were invited to an event honoring Robert Redford.  The event was called:   “The Governor’s Salute to Robert Redford: A Utah Tribute to an American Icon.” The event kicked off with a group of Native American Indians performing a ceremonial dance in their full attire.  It was incredible!  It was

Take Time to Have a Little Fun in Your Life

Sometimes we get so caught up in doing “stuff” that we forget to take time to have a little fun in life. Between work, children, cleaning the house, community involvement, doing laundry, church responsibilities, etc, etc, etc, we simply don’t take time to get out and have a good time.
