Life Lessons: Nona Farmer and Karen Monson share a hopeful message in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic

Life Lessons

Share This

Life is hard, stressful, fast-paced and can sometimes be overwhelming. That’s why is partnering with MorningStar Senior Living of Idaho Falls to bring you Life Lessons.

We’re asking MorningStar residents to share gems of wisdom every Tuesday with us. Some of their answers will make you laugh, some may make you cry, some may even change your life.

Like other facilities across the state, MorningStar is currently restricting visitors and the building is on lockdown due to COVID-19. Residents are able to leave their rooms, walk around and chat with their families on the phone. They are working to stay positive.

Because we can’t do an in-person visit, we decided to video chat with Nona Farmer and Karen Monson. The women grew up in Mackay and have been good friends for a long time.

Nona and Karen shared how they are managing their “social isolation” by playing games, watching TV and doing some beautiful artwork. The women spoke about how they have stayed positive during hard times and had a message for their family and friends.
