    Yesterday was my birthday and seen a post my non LDS brother made on his wife's Facebook page. "Happy birthday to my little sister! I love her as much today as the day she came home from the big day care center in the sky." He's not one for mush, so that was pretty awesome to see.

    Naked and Afraid

    Tuned in for 5 minutes while surfing to see what was on. You couldn't pay me to watch it again. Actually it just seems like their desperate to put something on t.v. and they have ran out of creative juices. I've never been much for reality shows. Although lately the family got me into watching Duck Dynasty. And it's becoming one of my favorites.
  3. This is a strange thought or question. It's one that's crossed my mind a time or two in a year and a half. My Dad passed away November 3rd of 2011. He wore glasses and for the viewing we had them on. Just before they shut the casket, they took them off and put them in his pocket of his shirt. He's now in a place where he doesn't need them. As I'm sure he's got perfect vision. So when he is resurrected with his body what happens with the glasses? I'm sure they'll still be there in the casket. Maybe items just turn to dust during resurrection time? He was also buried in a Temple suit. Which is where his glasses are. Will he be resurrected with that suit on? Or will we be provided with other clothing when we get to spirit world? Any one have any in sight on this or care to speculate?

    hard time understanding church decision on BSA

    I think the best solution is to talk to you children on a regular basis. About ALL subjects. I wouldn't lump being gay with smokers, drug users or alcohol users. To them it's not a matter of choice and it's something internal they struggle with. Our kids are more likely to befriend someone at school who abuses than to mingle with a gay. If you educate your children then they can look past the sin and treat them as Christ would want them to. I wouldn't stop my son from going to scouts, but I would tell him that, that isn't right. And if he knows anyone in there, let it go. Especially if their minding their own business when it comes to that kind of preference talk. If they do have a gay in their tent, and by chance he does start talking in that way, tell your son that you'd feel better if he didn't talk about that stuff and steer the conversation else where. Like, where's the big dipper. Or what badge are you working on, etc. I just don't see anything having to be an issue. Not when you can work with it. Talk to your boys before hand and if it makes you feel better, do it often. You never know what kind of influence your child can be for someone off track. They may just need someone to treat them as human and maybe then a light bulb can go off where they may have been struggling and see that, that isn't the direction they want to go or be in. We need to reach out our hand and help those back to the iron rod not shun them like they have a disease.

    baby and finishing school

    I was 19 when I had my first child. And 22 with my second. I was fortunate to get to be a stay at home single mom. I wouldn't trade that for any career in the world. Being with them every step of the way was the best blessing and the only thing I regret, is they grew up. Now it's my time to choose whatever I want to do. Just so long as it's pleasing to my Heavenly Father. Being a Homemaker and my callings, mixed with some service often, completes me. I felt that way 30 years ago, and still feel that way today. There's nothing more important than being a mother, wife and daughter of our Heavenly Father. At least for me anyway. And I am still working on one of those. If you want to do school and have a baby, do both. You can do anything you set your mind to. It won't be easy, but you can do it. Good luck in whatever you decide to do!
