Life Lessons

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.

With the spread of COVID-19, we are currently unable to interview the wise folks face-to-face at Morningstar so we’re taking a look back at what some in the past have told us.

We first met Alta Palmer Durrant in February. She was born Aug. 13, 1919 and turns 101 this summer. She loves being alive. Alta has outlived three husbands and five of her seven children. She says her faith has helped her through the hard times of life.

Watch the video above to hear more about Alta’s remarkable life.
