What Do You Do When Things Fall Apart?

What Do You Do When Things Fall Apart? What do you do when things fall apart? I mean, everything in your life is in pieces? Kirk Bentzgen- owner of the massive Performance Auto- is my favorite story of how to come back when everything looks utterly bleak.

How do you come back from divorce, losing your business, losing your father and getting brain cancer? This man is a hero, and his path back is a great guidebook for all of us struggling with loss. Watch and be inspired.

Daddy-Daughter Dates: Sweet. And Sometimes Smelly – 4.9.19

Daddy-Daughter Dates: Sweet. And Sometimes Smelly. When the Todd takes our Zoe on a “Daddy-Daughter Date,” it’s always sweet. And sometimes smelly.


There was a particularly entertaining “Anti” protester at General Conference this weekend, you’ll love him. New Zealand may not have the Running of the Bulls, but they have something cuter. We introduce you to possibly the worst person in a position of power here in Utah. Ugh.


And in Tell Me Something Good, the most epic 13-year-old boy in North America. When his father leaves the family in dire circumstances and his mother working 2 jobs and taking the bus, this kiddo leaps into action. (BTW: need more stories of awesome kids and their… uh… awesomeness? Have a look at our “Kid tested and kid approved jokes” here.)

Could You Dine In The Nude? – 1.9.19

Could You Dine In The Nude? Could you eat completely naked? Or would the sight of the other diners make you lose your appetite? Welcome to the Paris restaurant where the only thing served “au naturale” is YOU. Au Naturale is a lovely bistro with a bit of quirk- the only way you can eat there is by leaving your clothing in the cloak room. Needless to say, no cellphones at dinner and the chair covers are switched out with the table linens after every meal. Sorry, there’s no way I can eat like that. Though the hosts DO offer slippers for diners with cold feet, that’s not the kind of “cold feet” I’d be dealing with.  Could You Dine In The Nude? How would it change the dining experience?


Imagine guarding a group of prisoners alone on a road work crew- and you have a stroke. What do they do? If they’re this amazing threesome, they leap into action and get help for you and save your life. Such a great Tell Me Something Good today!
