  1. Hi Kayla, I came across your blog a little over a week ago – can’t even remember how – and have enjoyed reading past posts (and the latest one making the rounds on facebook – boy howdy is it making waves. 🙂 ). I’d love to have you write a post about any aspect of the Family Proclamation Celebration we are having the last two weeks of September. Please e-mail me at chocolateonmycranium {at} live {dot} com for more info, etc. if you are interested. Thanks!

  2. Hi, just found your blog on Facebook. I wondered if you were LDS. I was sorry to hear about your dad. Could I ask a question?

  3. We have no idea how bad it was, truly, no idea. To comment on it would be an insult to your family. Jesus is the one and only God, accept no substitutes.

  4. Wow. I just knew you were Mormon from reading your “More than you can handle” article but then the “letter to you” sealed the deal! I so enjoyed your articles.

  5. Thank you for sharing.. I lost my husband a year and 7 months ago.. I am still going through some of the very same things that you are saying.. It’s like you said, “One does not know the pain, the questioning, the sleepless nights, the hurt, until they have gone through such an experience.” If you have a book please send me the title because I would love to read it. Thank you once again.

    1. Have you read the Hospice little blue book? It’s an easy read. It really does help make sense of what it’s like to grieve. Grieving is personal but we all go through so many of the same steps. Blessings.

  6. Kayla I can’t even begin to tell you how moved I was by your posts. You could’ve been me. I lost my momma November 3rd 2013 to pancreatic cancer. I was blessed to spend 6 months out of the 9 she had left. I didn’t think I could go on with out her. At times I still have that Thought cross my mind. I MISS Her so much. SHE was my best friend my biggest fan my motivator MY Everything. Since her passing I’ve lost my car, my home and at times I feel my mind. I inherited my 44 year old learning disabled brother from her. She told me I was the one out of my 3 other siblings that could and would understand him and take good care of him.Your post dropped me to my knees to beg Heavenly Father for forgiveness for the thoughts I’ve been having lately about not believing in him. There is alot more to my story, I’ve always had so much FAITH AND TRUST IN THE LORD. ALWAYS. You have given some of that back to me and I just want to say THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN. Maria

  7. Quote:
    1 Corinthians 10:13
    There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

    1. Also, please note that “you” and “ye” in the King James Version of 1 Cor. 10:13 quoted by AmericaWatch are PLURAL, not singular. In the King James English, “thee” or “thou” indicate 1 individual person, but “you” and “ye” indicate more than one person. Therefore, “above that YE are able” can mean that you are not alone in handling the trial, but that brothers & sisters in Christ may provide help.

  8. I just found out about this blog! It’s so funny because I recently made a blog about “lemony things” too. My blog is called “The Lemon Lifestyle”. You should check it out 🙂

  9. thank goodness for the solace that is rendered through a knowledge of the gospel and Heavenly Fathers plan for us..The church is true:) k,b, denham springs first ward d.s. la.

  10. Hi

I have always love 1 Corinthians 10:13 and use it alot when life is pressing in

    stay safe

  11. Kayla, I loved your blog on Women and the Priesthood! There is order in every thing the Lord does. I totally agree with you and it makes me sad that some of our sisters see this differently. Even my convert husband responded by saying, “Just what part of the priesthood do these women not get”! Thank you for sharing

  12. How are you doing,Kayla? You are right ,time does not heal all things , but at some point, I do believe the Savior will. It is hard to wait but let us move toward that day. I am depending on the promises: Moroni 7:41. it just “popped” out at me yesterday- my husband died from pancreatic cancer last year.

  13. I’ve nominated you for a very inspiring blogger award here:
    I’m not sure if you like awards or not so it’s your choice whether you’d like to accept it, but I wanted to add the link to your blog on my post because I love your work. 🙂
    (Hopefully you don’t mind that I posted this here I wasn’t sure if this was the best place to comment and let you know, but I didn’t see a better place.)

  14. Thank you. I used to be a mom. Have struggled to understand, still don’t, but somehow it’s better after reading your blog about the desire to be a mom. I do believe Heavenly Father wants us to know peace and joy; maybe your words are a part of my path to healing.
