I believe in and follow the Word of Wisdom

(for the most part…)

but I also believe in and follow the Wisdom of Words.

When words keep you from feeling good, treat them like firewood,

and LET ‘EM BURN!

I want to read other peoples’ blogs (and I am a little and will do more so soon)…

but for right now, I’M TOO BUSY WRITING MY OWN!

Eternal struggle between reading and writing.  Another good problem to have, I’d say 🙂

The Surprise of a Lifetime!

This is Thomas:

Image

Thomas is a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  He attended Southern Virginia University (where he did music with my mama!), and after graduating, made the brave decision to serve a full-time LDS mission at the age of 24.  When making a quick stop in Utah to stock up on missionary gear, Thomas experienced a BIG surprise.  Check it out!

So awesome, huh?  Actually, he was one of 15 soon-to-be missionaries who got this star treatment:

Godspeed, Thomas!  And Deseret First Credit Union, mad props.

It’s not about the nail….or about this video:

I am not livid at this video.  I do think it’s clever, well-made, and also like that it illustrates that men and women often speak different languages.  It tactfully delves into the realm of female/male relationships without desperately resorting to sexuality for cheap attention.   Oh, and I love Stevie Wonder, and also wouldn’t mind asking that woman how she styles her bangs…

However, it is problematic as well: The man in the video is reasonable, and the woman, though not completely crazy, is stereotyped as a little annoying and of course very silly and ignorant.  Again, there have been way more offensive portrayals of this stereotype, but may I just add that as you enjoy this video, don’t forget about some of the subtle, deeper messages portrayed in it as well.

I will NEVER be as cool as Natasha Bedingfield,

but I can still do this every once and a while:

I don’t need a microphone to say what I’ve been thinking.

My heart is like a loudspeaker, that’s always on 11.

The stripping going on is NOT literal, people!

I may not have given my high school valedictory speech,

but it seems like some people are listening to what I’m saying, huh?

Not all about me/vessel of truth and goodness.

Still no money-still looking into it…

Jennifer Lawrence got BURNED!

Oh, and know who else is on fire?

Not literally though, please 🙂  Just wanted to clear that up…

Just got another convert

to Google Docs! (though sadly now it’s all called “Drive,” which is NOT my favorite word in the world)

Image

This is Todd.  Remember him?  Loads more to come about this guy, but for now, I’m glad I could bring him into the sweet spot of writing collaboration that IS Google Docs.  Dayan would be so proud.

Bait and Switch Title Techniques

Sometimes I use bait and switch titles.  But the thing is, I don’t feel like I’m being sleezy because the content of my post usually lives up to any hype I create, know what I mean?  They say, “sex sells.”  And I’m not afraid of the word or the subject, but I would be okay with President Monson reading this blog.  Plus I feel like I am talented enough of a writer that I don’t need to wrongfully exploit the subject of sexuality to gain or please readers/ followers.  Please read that as confidence, not arrogance.

The only time this has ever happened, and WILL ever happen:

liking someone else’s version better than Natasha’s.

Blasphemy, I know.

Girl I’m still your biggest fan! And I still wanna share a stage with you.  Dead serious.

My friendship with you

is in no way contingent upon your interest in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Still, a new pogo-stick would be a shame to pass up…

No man can serve two masters. 

Thanks for the help on that one, Andrew.  BYU taught me to quote my sources. 🙂

Ambivalent feelings toward fame and recognition

is a theme that good artists often explore.  As I see myself becoming a famous writer in the future (truth in jest), I imagine I will have to give this idea some thought.  Haha, but whether or not I ever get a single hit again, I find this a fascinating topic.  So for now, let’s just hear what Miss Natasha has to say about it.  And it’s hard for lyrics to stand out when they’re all good, but here are some notable ones:

“thirsty in a desert with a bag full of gold,

what I thought was precious was just a pile of stones”

Read ALL the lyrics here.

Just enough sexual tension to make it interesting…

Screen shot 2013-08-03 at 9.51.48 AM

but not enough to make it inappropriate or uncomfortable.

Screen shot 2013-08-03 at 9.52.26 AM

 I am Mormon, woman, and human, and the order of those 3 things sometimes changes.  And I want to be honest but not obscene.  There is nothing on this blog that I wouldn’t want an employer to see.  Or my mom.  There is nothing that I believe could compromise my temple recommend.  And still I bare my soul.  But it seems to be working out okay because I keep getting more and more followers 🙂

Modern-day Polygamy

Image

JUST KIDDING!

Hey Stace, Janey and I could take a modesty tip or 2 from you.

By the, Mormons no longer practice polygamy.  Read more about it here.

Oh, and I interviewed a girl who was born into a polygamous family, but later converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Check it stat.

Sure looks like an engagement photo, right?  Someday I’ll be holding a man instead of my guitar.  And hopefully not by the neck.

THIS BLOG POST IS FOR EVERYONE ON PLANET EARTH!

Mormon, Baptist, Jew, Agnostic, Atheist, Catholic, Muslim, Sihk, Gay, Straight, Black, White, Brown, Purple etc. (not listed in order of importance btw but Mormon IS number 1 on MY list…just sayin”)  This one’s for YOU!

Wanna know something?  Everyone can create!  And I’m not just talking about the sexy dance of procreation 🙂  I’m talking about being an artist.  Making something beautiful.  Something of value.  Something of substance…

We can’t all be this girl:

Or this man:

(Mark Twain for those who don’t read in this digital age)

Or this guy:

Image

(been hanging out with Mike Tyson lately, Vincent?)

And we DEF can’t all be this woman:

BUT WE CAN ALL CREATE!  WE ARE ALL ARTISTS!  I’M YELLING OUT OF JOY NOT ANGER…Enough with the caps-lock…

This beautiful German man says it better than I ever could (and that’s saying something!)…..

Read the full address here:  https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2008/10/happiness-your-heritage?lang=eng  He’s talking specifically to women but his words are a universal truth, yes they are…

“You may say ‘I am not the creative type.’  If that is how you feel, THINK AGAIN.”

How do YOU create?

*not trying to convert you to the LDS Church (ain’t no bait-and-switch), but if you do I wouldn’t hate it…

#not trying to be preachy, just excited and wanted to share…
