Suprisingly LDS?

Image
We have been wasting time on famousmormons.net. I came across a few I knew about and a few I didn't:




Troy Dunn from "The Locator". Supposedly he is currently serving as a Bishop in his ward.
Rick Schroeder married a good little Mormon girl many years ago and converted in 2000.
Lacey Schwimmer of "So You Think You Can Dance" and "Dancing With The Stars" fame.
Katherine Heigl from "Grey's Anatomy". She admits she is not active but admires the religion.
The Hough siblings from "Dancing With The Stars".

Aaron Eckhart. You might know him as "two-face" from the last Batman movie.


Ali from the "Biggest Loser". She was the big winner last season

Some of you are getting these delivered to you this week....


We are slowly making our way down a rather long list of important people in our lives (teachers, home teachers, close friends, etc) this week. It is super fast and super easy and fun to make!


Start with these ingredients:

Melt 1/2 (stick) of butter and 2 cups of marshmallows together over low heat. Add 2 cups of Fiber One cereal. Once cool, form into "nests". This recipe makes about a dozen. After about an hour stick thumb in the center and put little "MandM's" or "Robin's Eggs" candy in the center. just for fun add a "Peep".

Let US tell you about Temples - a response to HBO

Official Statement from the Church:
SALT LAKE CITY 9 March 2009 Like other large faith groups, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sometimes finds itself on the receiving end of attention from Hollywood or Broadway, television series or books, and the news media. Sometimes depictions of the Church and its people are quite accurate. Sometimes the images are false or play to stereotypes. Occasionally, they are in appallingly bad taste.

As Catholics, Jews and Muslims have known for centuries, such attention is inevitable once an institution or faith group reaches a size or prominence sufficient to attract notice. Yet Latter-day Saints – sometimes known as Mormons - still wonder whether and how they should respond when news or entertainment media insensitively trivialize or misrepresent sacred beliefs or practices.

Church members are about to face that question again. Before the first season of the HBO series Big Love aired more than two years ago, the show’s creators and HBO exe…

Feeling Overwhelmed????

Here is my recommendation...


I had the chance to meet Sister Fronk last year. She is a really amazing person.

She was an answer to my prayer

Today I had a cool experience that I thought was share-worthy. This is one of those moments that I want to write about so that I don't forget it.
We have had what has seemed like an avalanche of bad news over the last few weeks. One thing after another!!!! I am going to spare you the details because quite honestly it is not anything worse than what many of you are experiencing right now. (Maybe I will blog about it in a few days when we know more.)
Needless to say, I have had occasional moments of overwhelming anxiety and discouragement. This morning was one. I got up to get ready for church and could barely bring myself to get out of bed! I am sure some of you can relate. To make matters worse, Brent had been up the entire night with his headache. (For those of you new to my blog, my husband has a chronic condition and has had the same headache now for 2.5 years. Some days are better than others and last night was really hard for him because he was out of one of his medecines.) A…

sick and tired

Tanner and I are under the weather. It's a mild flu bug, I guess. Just enough to be feeling REALLY tired and not much of an appetite. Brent has a really bad headache. We weren't able to go to conference this weekend which is a total bummer. I love Stake Conference. I always get so much out of it. Instead I have been watching Lifetime movies all weekend. This morning my angel called (aka: my aunt). Here she is in a picture with Kiki and Reagan. She is bringing us home made chicken noodle soup tonight. MMMMMM.....I think I fell better already......
