She LOVES teaching working with the women in the church! She spends her spare time with her family of 29 adults and children, going to the temple and has been known to use the single adult as guinea pigs to try out her new recipes! She has traveled the road of being a single adult in the church for the last 9 years and has figured out how to live life joyously even when it is not perfect.
“Flecks of Gold: We Don’t Have to Wait for Joy!”
Too many times in life we are waiting for something to happen before we can truly be happy…. the promotion, the finished project, the temple marriage. Don’t postpone joy!! Joy is interwoven in our lives like small flakes of gold.
“Serenely Single: How to Find Joy in the Single Journey”
Pres. Uchdorf said, ” Discipleship is the pursuit of holiness and happiness. It is the path to our best and happiest self.” Yet when asked to fill in the blank we often couple the word “SINGLE” with Sad, Lonely, Frustrated or Angry. But it does not have to be so! This workshop will help you find the joy in the Single Journey!
“Things as They Really Are”
Do you find yourself an/or your family wasting countless hours, postponing or forfeiting vocational or academic achievement and sacrificing relationships? This workshop will help to educate the learner about the hazards and precautions each family should take to monitor and safeguard their family.

She currently co-owns Barton Creek Counseling where she provides outpatient counseling and has developed an online program for women at TakeCareofMom.com where she helps women gain tools to be confident, healthy and happy.
She and her husband Chris, have been married for 30 years and have 5 children and 3 grandchildren.
“Keeping Life in Perspective: Understanding How to Combat Fear and Anxiety with Love and Faith”
Living in our modern world is not always easy. Expectations, comparisons, and worries about the future can weigh us down and cause us to feel anxious and fearful. But God has given us a powerful antidote to fear and worry.
In this class, we will learn why we sometimes get anxious and worry and what to do about it. We will also learn about the power of love and faith and how we can use practical tools every day to conquer fear.
David Pulsipher is a history professor at Brigham Young University–Idaho, where he has taught for over twenty years. He earned a BA in American Studies from BYU and a Ph.D. in the same field from the University of Minnesota. In 2007-08 he was a visiting professor and Fulbright scholar at Jamia Millia Islamia in New Delhi, India. His research focuses on how Mormon history and theology relate to principles of peace and nonviolence. His publications include When We Don’t See Eye to Eye: Using the Weapon of Love to Overcome Anger and Aggression, and his current book project is entitled Weapons of Peace: A Mormon Theology of Nonviolence. He has served as a full-time missionary in Pennsylvania and in various callings at the ward and stake level. He is currently serving in the High Priest group leadership of his ward. He and his wife, Dawn, are the parents of six children, three of whom are still at home. They live in Rexburg, Idaho, which they love most of the year, except when it is too hot.
“Engaging Conflict with Love”
We can’t avoid conflict. It is divinely woven into the very fabric of creation. So the choice we face is not whether to engage conflict, but rather how. The Savior shows us the way—and the key is love, which transforms destructive conflict into something creative, even beautiful.
