Freedom Festival Devotional

Thank you Carl Bacon for inviting us to be your special guests at this year’s opening devotional for the Freedom Festival in Provo.  We were treated like royalty as we got to visit with the Governor, several local political leaders running for office, the recipients of the freedom award, BYU athletes, Days of ’47 sponsors and overall incredible people!  
We loved the message shared by Coach Niumatalolo, head football coach at the Naval Academy.  Thank you for such a noteworthy experience!  We feel the patriotism running deep and we are proud to be Americans, and especially grateful to those in the Armed Forces who fight to keep us Free! We are looking forward to attending Stadium of Fire with performances by Hunter Hayes, Brian Regan, and Little Big Town.

Relief Society Garden Party

The Cottonwood 5th Ward Relief Society sure knows how to throw a party! We loved the opportunity to dine and visit with them, to sing, and to speak of their wonderful theme “Bloom Where You Are Planted”.  Our sweet Queen was even able to arrive in Pioneer style as she walked from her car that had stalled to arrive at the event.  Thank you to the angel young man who stopped to help her push her car! We were grateful to be with amazing women full of love and light!  A special thanks to Kallie Dent for inviting us.
