The happenings of the Billy and Sheri Wardle family
What's In This Blog
I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Shower of Heavenly Blessings
This presentation by President Uchtdorf made me stop and think. The thought I had is what is my umbrella? What am I doing to block the blessings of heaven. Usually you would think an umbrella is a good thing, but in this case the rain represents the blessings. I think of the stupid little things I do that open my umbrella. It had me in tears as I had those thoughts. I am glad Jesus can close the umbrella, so blessings can fall unencumbered.
We are the Wardles. I am Billy. We are the parents of 8, one in Heaven
(stillborn,) 6 birth and 1 adopted. Four are away from home, two
daughters married and two sons in the Logan area going to school. Tony,
our adopted son is 11 years younger than our youngest birth child, so
he is greatly spoiled. I have worked for the Duckwater Shoshone Tribe, Utah State Social Services, part of the time working with the Ute Tribe, Uintah Basin Counseling and Santa Clara County Mental Health for the last 21 years. Active Mormon and I follow the prophet.
