and speaking of cake, Marie Antoniette, want a piece? No? Okay, cool, I’ll just go give it to your lowly peasants.
are better than others.
Hugh Hefner is not a hero. He is a ZERO. He is not someone to be admired. He is a sad, ugly old man who has made millions from an industry that has destroyed relationships, lives, jobs, freedom, confidence, health, and happiness. Total loser, if you ask me.
Plus, his red plush robe only makes him look more like the devil,
AND emphasizes his blood-shot eyes and blotchy complexion.
And ya’ll know how much I love free speech, but don’t even try to go there with me on this one because I will PULVERIZE every claim you make. That’s how good I am 🙂 And that’s how bad pornography is. So let’s hear what real men think of it:
Don’t care about/believe in religion/God/prophets? This guy doesn’t talk about it:
And neither does this girl:
Pornography is terrible in every way possible! It’s not sexy. It’s not hot. It causes abuse. It degrades something sacred. It it highly linked to drug use, depression, crime, and other problems. Bourne Ultimatum? I wish we could make it the PORN Ultimatum! But until then, we just have to try our very best to control ourselves and keep this trash out of our lives in every way possible. Sound good? Peeeeeerfect.
But back to mansions, if we Stay out of the Smut that Satan Spreads, we can party it up at this one!
In my Father’s House are many mansions... I go to prepare a place for you.
(and for further reading, I also write about chastity/purity/sex/temples here)
PS. Think I’ve covered all my bases, ya’ll. And I don’t even play sports.
PPS. If you are involved in pornography, there is hope, both professional and spiritual. Keep fightin’
PPPS. Even Mr. Hefner could repent through the Atonement.
still considering law school…
“A [wo]man filled with the love of God is not content to blessing [her] family alone, but ranges through the whole world, anxious to bless the whole human race.”
And holy freakin’ cow, does she embody it! Her money is TOTEZ where her mouth is…
Even I can’t find the words to express how I feel about this girl.
Help me out, Natasha:
Can’t think of a better way. That’s all I have to say. I love you!
PS. In case you’re wanting some sort of count, she’s been to Uganda (TWICE!), the Phillippines, Fiji, France, and probably a million other places I don’t even know about. Jet-lagged much?
In October 2008, Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin (an apostle in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) gave an address entitled “Come What May and Love it” in Mormon General Conference. It caught on like wild-fire. The address has to do with not only accepting unforeseen circumstances, but also finding JOY in them. Best part is when he mentions how his daughter’s blind-date went awry. The address itself is fantastic to say the least, but I think the REAL genius is in the title/catch-phrase. You see, Elder Wirthlin took a familiar phrase:
AND MADE IT HIS OWN!
And thus he single-handedly spawned many a kitchen plaque and Pinterest Meme…
So that’s the key to making something do so well! Do a phrase twist! Take an idiom/cliche that everyone knows well, and add your own unique spin to it! That way, “that original feeling [will] never [go] away“!
I’ve tried this tactic before; on this blog even! Here are a few of my examples.
(oh yah, and the Biebz has been known to do it, too. Here’s one example: The grass ain’t always greener on the other side, it’s green where you water it.)
Of course, I’ll never be able to do it as well as Elder Wirthlin. Come to think of it, his wife was an English major if I remember correctly. He probz got it all from her. And so I guess it looks like my future husband will be an apostle then…TBOB! (thunderbolt of blasphemy)…
PS. In case you are wondering, this post alone contains ideas inspired by the following: Elder Wirthlin, Natasha Bedingfield, BYU, Moulin Rouge, Twitter, The Book of Luke in the New Testament, Justin Bieber, Pinterest, and blasphemy/sacrilege. Well done, Katherine. Well. Done. 🙂
when it comes to this blog, anything does NOT go. The LDS writer Joanna Brooks has made me think about this and it’s implications regarding that golden line of propriety. She has a policy of “Anything Goes” when it comes to comments on her blog posts, but I have firmly chosen required approval for mine. But let’s get away from talking comments because I don’t really have a ton (yet) anyways 🙂 I will not feature any experience/person/picture/video on this blog. Again, I run the risk of coming across as self-righteous, but that’s alright because I like running AND I like risks. And I also know that while I’m not perfect, I do my very best to not judge others while still holding true to my own convictions. So while I respect Joanna as a human, Mormon, AND woman (just like me!), I differ from her in this regard, and in many others as well.
But there are a LOT of things I do wish to feature on my blog. And many, many good things already in the works. Stay tuned!
No beatin’ around the bush on that title (figuratively OR literally)! I had my NEW friend Kemp and my OLD friend Carlos help me out. Check it stat (and please excuse my being a little dance happy. I’m not as smooth/subtle as my friends):
And if you think that was entertaining (probably mainly because Katherine was making a fool of herself), it actually wasn’t anything compared to what these guys can do for real. Here’s just a taste of their INSANE TALENT. And yes Mom, the following is improvised.
Oh, and just had to include this one too:
I have a friend named Sonrisa. Not her real name of course (my name in 8th grade Spanish class was Sonrisa that means SMILE, so that’s why I chose it.) ANYWAYS, Sonny came home and read this blog, then gained some clarity about a D-bag who had been in and out of her life for quite some time after she read the comment on this post (thanks Christine!). She realized Mr. D hadn’t weathered enough storms, and that she needed a man by her side, not a boy who’d run and hide! And NOW, she is that much closer to finding her dream man. Love you Sonrisa! Thanks for telling me, and onward you go 🙂
And as for me? Just call me “Katherine clean Carrie Bradshaw Wilkinson.”
