June 2010

Presidency Message

In "The Family: A Proclamation to the World" it proclaims that "marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children"
President Spencer W. Kimball states "Life is eternal. The greatest joys of true married life can be continued. The most beautiful relationships of parents and children can be made permanent. The holy association of families can be never-ending if husband and wife have been sealed in the holy bond of eternal matrimony. Their joys and progress will never end.
If we have already received this great blessing we must guard it and do all we can to keep it strong . If we have not yet received this blessing I pray that we will make it a goal . We know that this isn't always possible in this life, but know that this blessing is promised to all faithful sisters whether in this life or in the life to come.

I am the youngest of seven children. I grew up in Grand Junction, Colorado. My dad is an architect for the church, and my mom is an amazing mother, and also a medical assistant. I graduated high school in American Samoa, and went on to study at Snow College in the University of Utah. I studied Spanish and am re-enrolling in school to study interior design.
I met my husband while serving a Spanish speaking mission in the Missouri Independence Mission, where he was also serving, and later were reconnected through a mutual friend. We were married in the Jordan River Temple in 2007, and had Bradley in 2009.

I am a photographer by hobby and occasionally by profession. I enjoy biking, hiking, swimming, and kickboxing. I want to become an interior designer and a mother of many children. I'm excited to get to know everyone in the ward and become part of the ward family.

Anything wrapped in tortillas is always a smash hit. I set out this grilled chicken (seasoned with cumin, chili powder, and oregano) and assorted toppings and let guests build their own fajitas.

  • 1 ripe avocado, cut into chunks and tossed in 1 teaspoon of lime juice
  • Salsa
  • Sour cream
  • Fresh ciliantro, chopped
  • 4 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half
  • 1 small red or yellow pepper, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 8-inch flour tortillas
  1. Place your toppings (avocado, salsa, sour cream and cilantro leaves) in separate bowls and set them on your table.

  2. Next, make the rub. Combine the cumin, chili powder, oregano, and salt in a shallow bowl. Lightly rub the spices into the chicken with your fingertips until the meat is coated on all sides. Heat your grill to medium. Grill the chicken on both sides, just until cooked through, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat, slice thinly, and set it on a platter.

  3. While the chicken is cooking, toss the pepper and onion in the olive oil. Set them on the grill, using a vegetable screen, if desired, and cook for 5 to 8 minutes, turning once. Remove from the heat and set on the platter with the chicken.

  4. Place the tortillas on the grill for 5 to 7 seconds on each side, turning with tongs, until hot. Set out the grilled chicken, pepper, and onion with the toppings and tortillas. Let guests assemble and roll their own fajitas. Serves 4 to 6.

Kid's Steps: Kids can set toppings in bowls and rub the spices into the chicken (washing hands thoroughly afterward). - Family Fun Mag
