"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Helaman 5:12

A new blog of interest

I would like to make a plug for yet another blog. This blog was set up by my husband but he included me as a contributor. This new blog (A Tangled Web) at was set up to help other people who are faced with rasing the children of relatives for whatever reason, but mostly for those who are raising these children because of the behavior of the parents.

When we began our own journey in taking care of three nieces and a nephew we had no idea what resources there were to help us. We have had to do a lot of leg work and still find ourselves seeking answers. We want to share what we have learned and seek out those who may have something to share, as well.

If you know someone who is in this situation please pass the word.

Thank you,
