Nie Nie Dialogues

My blog began in 2005.  I write daily about whatever I am doing, mostly about my five children, my husband Christian (Mr. Nielson), our love life, my struggles, my blessings and my strong Mormon faith.  

In 2008, Christian and I were in a airplane crash which killed our friend and severely burned us.  I was burned over 80% of my body and in a coma for nearly 3 1/2 months.  Since that day, I have a new sense of what life is.  What it's about and how I a going to live. 

I choose to be happy despite ongoing pain and surgeries.

I wrote a book about this which was a New York Times Best Seller in April '12.

You should read it.
