Book Club in September. what I served, what we read

Image
We had an exceptional turnout for September's book club with 13 guests.   This is the book I chose for us to read in October.  Soooo good.


Cast aside by his family at an early age, abandoned and left to fend for himself in the woods of Washington State, young Joe Rantz turns to rowing as a way of escaping his past. What follows is an extraordinary journey, as Joe and eight other working-class boys exchange the sweat and dust of life in 1930s America for the promise of glory at the heart of Hitler's Berlin. Stroke by stroke, a remarkable young man strives to regain his shattered self-regard, to dare again to trust in others - and to find his way back home. Told against the backdrop of the Great Depression, The Boys in the Boat is narrative non-fiction of the first order; a personal story full of lyricism and unexpected beauty that rises above the grand sweep of history, and captures instead the purest essence of what it means to be alive
Here are the recipes I served:

We started the month of with a fun pep rally.  Here is Reagan with her buddy, Taylor.


Went to see a flick with a great bunch of kids.
Love this thought.  It spoke to me one day when I needed the reminder. Got these from a dear friend for my birthday.  

Subbed in one night with these cute "Beehives".  They painted pictures and uplifting thoughts for kids in the hospital.



Our missionary is doing so well out in the field.  He gets along great with his first companion, Elder Charles.  I can tell from his letters that they have alot in common.
Brother Mack ran into them again while he was visiting and took them out to dinner.  he sent me these text pics - since my missionary never sends us any.  Boo hiss.


Love this gal.  One of my favorites.  Apparently, we both like yellow. Brady picked out his Halloween costume.
Spent every Tuesday this month at a football game watching one of our girls cheering.  This is a picture of the 7th and 8th grade cheer squad. I hosted book club.  (Ma…

What Elder Argyle thought of October General Conference 2014

Dude Ricky G is the BOMB! I have a whole list so I'll just name them off Dallin H.Oaks- this one was cool because he was basically prophesying of what is going to come of the world and how are standards cannot surrender because of political popularity. Basically I got that he is saying we have to just love the people even though they are continuously choosing to be wicked. Lynn G. Robbins basically said the same thing. If we surrender our standards that is APOSTASY. D. Todd Christofferson is a new favorite of mine. that talk was just legit in every way. The stories he tells are just awesome. I think this one was probably my favorite. You know I love Elder Holland. Bednar was FRIGGIN SICK! I wish all of our investigators would've watched that session it was amazing! M. Russell Ballard was really good too cause I just loved that analogy

It all works out.

It isn’t as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don’t worry. I say that to myself every morning. It will all work out. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. He will not forsake us. If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we will live worthy of His blessings, He will hear our prayers.
