Three Chances to See Me before I Move!

One of the hardest parts about moving to Iowa in a couple of weeks is that I will be leaving Utah without meeting so many of my blog friends here.

So, I am happy to say that there will be THREE opportunities in the next two weeks to meet me before I move. I would love it if you could come to at least one of them!

Chance #1

Women in the Scriptures Lecture by Diana Webb

Thursday, March 28th @ 7 PM

 1630 Siesta Drive, Sandy, Utah

I am really excited to be hosting a first ever Women in the Scriptures lecture featuring Diana Webb, author of "Forgotten Women of God". Diana is one of my very favorite women in the scriptures scholars (you can read my interview with her here) and I know that I am super excited to hear her speak! Her topic will be "Rebekah and other Lionesses at the Gate." I have read parts of her manuscript ( still in progress) by the same title and it is wonderful. This should be a great night.

There will be refreshments provided and lots of time to mingle, chat, and meet other women in the scriptures readers. If you are planning on attending please join the Facebook Event so I can get an idea of how many are coming and keep you up to date if anything changes.

Feel free to bring friends and spouses! Nursing babies are welcome.

Also, there is extra parking across the street. 

Chance #2 

Gift of Giving Life Party

Friday, March 29th @ 7PM 

Arrivals Birth Center  
(1190 E 5425 S Suite 330, Ogden, UT) 

Lani (one of my co-authors) just started doing these parities in Arizona and they have been amazing. Robyn and I are so excited to host the first one in Utah!

We will have a drawing for a free copy of our book, The Gift of Giving Life, and will have some copies of the book available for purchase at a discount. You may also get to meet some of the women whose stories are included in the book.

Please do (at least) one of the following to make this party a beautiful experience for all of us...

Prepare to share a short story about a time when you saw the hand of God or had a spiritual experience as you prepared for pregnancy, got pregnant, survived pregnancy, experienced a miscarriage or stillbirth, gave birth, recovered from birth, struggled to breastfeed, or decided to have another baby, etc.

Select a favorite short excerpt from The Gift of Giving Life that has had a positive impact on you to share at the party. (You do not have to have read the book to come.)

Interview your mother/grandmother/aunt/sister/friend about her birth experiences and share something uplifting you learned.

Pray for an open heart as you enjoy hearing others share their stories.

Please RSVP by joining our Facebook Event page

 Please do bring your pregnant friends! Breastfeeding babies are welcome!

P.S. If you'd like to bring munchies, that would be super. Just message us. :-)

Chance #3 

Ladies Night Book Signings at Deseret Book
Saturday, April 6th from 6:00- 8:00 PM 

Fort Union Deseret Book Store 

( 1110 E Fort Union Blvd, Midvale, UT)

I will be signing copies of my book "The Gift of Giving Life" during Ladies Night (during the Priesthood Session of General Conference)! If you have never been to Ladies Night before it is a lot of fun. There are lots of treats and giveaways and everything is on sale. I would love to meet some of you there. Bring your books and I will sign them, or come and buy a copy. It might be one of the last times to get a signed copy from me!

Also, if you live in Idaho Robyn will be signing books at the Ammon, Idaho Deseret Book store during Ladies Night. If you live in California Sheridan will be at the Orange County Deseret Book store during Ladies Night. So go get your book signed! 

Hope to see you at one-- or ALL-- of those three events!

Unless of course you live in Iowa, then hopefully we will meet in a few months:) 


  1. Well, Iowa is closer to Ohio where I'm at so maybe one of these days we'll meet in the middle? :) Praying for smooth weeks as you prepare for your move!

  2. That is great about your Women in the Scriptures lecture! The topic sounds very pertinent and engaging. Have fun bidding adieu to your Utah area fans.

  3. I'll be in Utah for conference weekend, I may be able to swing by if I can con the driver into it. :) fingers crossed.

  4. Just found you here. Where in Iowa are you moving? We are in the Council Bluffs Stake, out in a tiny little branch. Many good things here and we need strong members.

  5. Best of luck with the move! Moving is an adventure!

  6. I live close to Ames Iowa and would LOVE to meet you near there sometime!! Have fun at your Utah meet-ups!!

  7. Heather---I've sooo been slacking off in keeping up with people's blogs. Which is sad because I truly love this blog in particular. I get to keep up with you and your family as well as learn some amazing truths. But...I thought I'd let you know that you'll have Several chances to see me after you move! haha We live in Iowa isn't that far away at all! We go through Iowa to get to my sister's in Ohio...but this summer that probably won't happen since our little boy is due end of May and I'm not a huge fan of traveling with small babes. If you are ever near Warrensburg, Missouri...please let me know! I'd love to see my RB lifeguard pal again!
