It’s been all-things-Tennessee at our house since our daughter “Sister A” opened her mission call four days ago and announced her assignment to the Tennessee Nashville Mission! … This special mission needs YOUR love & prayers right now!
A lot of bright and beautiful things have happened during the past two weeks!

It was just another typical morning, as I stood at the bus stop waiting for my day to begin…but soon I would realize I was having one of those rare and unexpected “human interaction moments”
In December 2007 a Mormon man from Brazil named Eduardo went on a business trip to Lagos, Nigeria. During his stay, he had the opportunity to attend a Christmas Party held at the local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was charmed by his video of the enthusiastic Yaba Ward Choir performing “Silent Night”. Enjoy!
Poetry and Art for Easter 2011
Our Heavenly Father would not be the Perfect Father, nor Jesus our Perfect Shepherd, if they were content with us to remain just as we are now. Why? Because they know what we have the power to become!
Today is the anniversary of the icecream sundae – which is fitting, since it has been a very sweet LDS General Conference weekend! Here are some tasty quotes, topped off with the easter poem President Monson shared.

I love it when songs are used as illustrations in talks during the Semi-Annual General Conference of our Church. Thankfully, it happens often. Last week’s October 2010 Conference was no exception.
Every talk today was marvelous, inspiring, motivating and exciting. I have pages and pages of rapidly scribbled notes and impressions that I plan to make sense out of [and write subsequent brilliant blog posts of course]…soon!
