As we were hiking Mt. Elbert, we passed a man and he said something to me that I can't stop thinking about.  He said, you look 


I've decided I don't only want to be physically strong enough to hike a mountain.  I want to be emotionally strong enough to perhaps make the biggest move of our lives in eight months. I want to continue to be strong when another birthday passes and I don't get a call or card from my mom. I want my testimony to be strong enough to help in the final Gathering of Israel. I need to be strong in my marriage and actively put Rich's needs first. It takes strength every day to be filled with patience and compassion for my two children.

Becoming strong takes time and hard work, but the result can be so obvious even a stranger can sense it. Here's to being strong regardless of how difficult it is.
