Ten Things I am Thankful for about Idaho Falls

  1. Christians
  2. The people of the community (one of the nicest civil communities in America)
  3. The library
  4. The bookstores
  5. The culture’s stance on moral family issues
  6. The mountains, forests, meadows, and lakes nearby for hiking and camping
  7. The potatoes (anyway they come – baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, hash browns, French fries, potato chips, etc.)
  8. The River (and all its habitat)
  9. The restaurants
  10. The bike trails
  11. (Oh, and I have to throw in one more)  The snow


  1. How about those that have gone before and sacrificed so that we can enjoy the freedoms of this great country — and I’m not talking about just the founding fathers, but everyone who has endured the hardships and struggles of life in hopes to make it better for their posterity.

    I am grateful for ancestors that stood with courage in the face of persecution, even unto death, to stand up for and teach the principles of honesty, truth, justice, chastity, and virtue.

    Todd, you have been reaping the benefits of those sacrifices in Southeastern Idaho. I hope that our children will be able to do the same as we work hard to plant these same seeds for generations to come. However, with the state of the country, it seems many have forgotten these sacrifices and are in the process of repeating the historical pattern of failing to teach our children of this gratitude and sacrifice and causing a nation to dwindle in unbelief.
