Creating Daily Joy with
the Help of Our Heavenly Father

Joy doesn’t always come in a cookie cutter, one-size-fits-all package—and that’s where personal revelation comes in. In this class, I share about my journey back from a deep depression and suicidal ideation. I share how I worked with Heavenly Father to find the unique, personalized solution for me, and how that has looked at different points in my life. I hope you leave this class feeling inspired to become more intentional about creating daily joy—and doing that with the help of your Heavenly Father.

Meet Allie: Allie Barnes is a writer, speaker, and mentor. She recently published her first book, Not According to Plan, where she shares her journey through depression, betrayal trauma recovery, developing resilience, and finding joy. Allie has an undergraduate degree in Family Studies and is finishing up a graduate degree in Leadership. She plans to release her second book in 2022.

Bringing Light to Others Through Your Unique Creativity & Talents

“We were created with the express purpose and potential of experiencing a fullness of joy. Our birthright—and the purpose of our great voyage on this earth—is to seek and experience eternal happiness. One of the ways we find this is by creating things.” – President Uchtdorf
Join Amy as she discusses the numerous ways each of us can bring light to others as we discover our individual and unique talents throughout life.  She will also discuss how being creative can change our personal lives, our relationships, how we can find joy in our own talents, and leave our unique, creative mark in the world. 

Meet Amy: Hi! I’m Amy, I am a graphic designer, LDS blogger, artist and I love to teach art & craft classes for girls.  I have been married for 18 years to my best friend and have 4 children ages 8-16. I live where I think is paradise, St. George UT, and have found the love of playing pickleball!  When Covid hit and slowed down my graphic design business, I found my real passion of painting again that I had put aside for so many years.  I was so excited for my paintings to get accepted into Deseret Book Downtown this summer. I am truly grateful for trials that bring hidden blessings. I am passionate to help women realize they are all daughters of God with Divine Gifts & Talents that can bring light into the world in numerous ways!

Importance of Small & Simple Things

After breaking my pinky, I realized how important that little finger really is, and how not being able to use it impacted every part of my life. Just like the importance of a small pinky finger, focusing on the small and simple things in our lives impacts all areas of our lives. We have to create the time in our busy day to do the small + simple things and great things will come.
