Forgive us our debts…

ImageIn the late 1890s, the Mormon Church was deeply in debt. Lorenzo Snow, the then-president of the faith, prayed for help and inspiration. Thus, came the revelation of the modern tithe, as announced in 1899 in St. George, Utah. Within a few short years, the Church was out of debt. And we NEVER will be in debt again. Never. Not to brag or sound worldly, but the cash flow of the LDS church has been surging ever since (hint: We. Are. Rich. But we use the money well and none of our leaders are paid!)

ImageThough I know this is probably impossible, I sure wish our modern government would take SOME sort of look at how we (Latter-day Saints/Mormons) do things.  Cuz we know how to get things done, be efficient, be responsible stewards with our money and properties.  And there is no one in his/her right mind who can say the same about the United States.  Trillions of dollars in the hole doesn’t just go away…

We need more than just a passing glance

at the efficiency of Mormon finance!

Oh Karl and Freddy, I’m sure you meant well,

have caused SOOOOO many problems.

Very rarely does a song capture pretty much everything I believe about what a man should and SHOULDN’T expect of his girlfriend (in a way that is both refreshingly true and also hilarious!)

This is one of those songs.

Not only that, but musically it’s a great song as well (blending a ton of instruments/ genres).

Oh, and Shedaisy is Mormon too.  Don’t hate that!

And their name was derived from a Navajo word that their brother learned on his full-time LDS mission.  Cool!

More to come from these girls.  I like them a LOT.

I won’t be your Martha Stewart baby, or your all-night restaurant. 

But I WILL be your everything!

“Blagging”

Is bragging about your blog.

Screen shot 2013-08-21 at 3.41.58 AM

I try hard not to do that, but no promises.  I am only human after all:

Oh and speaking of, Brandon Flowers IS Mormon.  Check it out!

And just back to blagging for one second, yes I have earned money, yes, I do have readers in 34 countries, yes I have made friends and helped others’ network as well, yes I have been able to email people in Alaska about the Book of Mormon, yes I have people contacting me about product reviews, and yes I am happy.  But I digress…

“It’s hard to be black and not Mormon living in Provo,”

said a new friend to me recently.  Again, I’m a WASM woman, so I won’t pretend to understand.  But I feel for you bro.  And you always have a friend in me…

A new friend, a compliment, and an answered question all in one blog post-TRIPLE WHAMMY!

Screen shot 2013-08-12 at 2.30.47 PM

This is Alan (he is very good looking and gave me permission to use his name, but asked to not have his picture included).  He is a new friend who lives with his sister and brother-in-law here in Utah having recently moved from Long Beach, California.  I don’t know him very well yet, but I can tell he is a good man who respects women, works hard, and is seeking truth.  Alan is currently investigating the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  I ain”t gonna hide the fact that I hope he joins, but whatever he decides, I am glad to have a new friend!  Oh, and he sent me the following in an email.  Totes made this girl’s day!

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.
