Great Motto

So, from the Savage's Blog :
Toughen up or die! 
Stand close together and lift where you stand 
Suck it up, Princess!
Come what may and love it

A recipe for strength for a family or community. 
I would add the adage that some of our friends from Heber would say to their young son that used to whine a lot (Sorry Sammy!). We have added it as one of our standard responses to our whining kids. 
"Is it broke? Is it bleeding? Quit your whining!"
I think that often we all want to whine a little. However, no matter how bad I have it, I can always very easily look to someone who is/has suffered or endured more than I have. 



  1. Hello Dave and Linda! Alyssa Lowry here in Utah. I heard about your story and Elder Fife. I currently have a missionary (special friend) ;) serving in the North Atlanta GA mission. I am pleased to hear that Elder Fife is progressing and doing well. Your faith and love for our Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ has strengthened many other's testimonies. Mine included. I was on Mormon Channel and came across this video and immediately thought of you and your family. I don't know why, but I was prompted to pass it along! Best of wishes!
