Missions are Fun

A missionary is someone who leaves his or her home for a little while so others can have their families forever.

Curious about Mormons? Go to the source and find real people at mormon.org--read what they believe and have live chats if you wish! (an official Church website)

Or, go to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, official web site: lds.org.

Our Mission Scriptures

Our Mission Scriptures:

"Oh, that I were an angel, and could have the wish of mine heart . . . Yea, I would declare unto every soul, as with the voice of thunder, repentance and the plan of redemption, that they should repent and come unto our God, that there might not be more sorrow upon all the face of the earth." Alma 29:1-2 (Book of Mormon)

" . . . be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." 1 Corinthians 15:58 (Bible)

Love the Rain

Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons filling our hearts with food and gladness.  Acts 14:17

I'm stealing an idea from a dear friend of mine who posted a photo essay called "I Love the Rain" last week.  Since, we get lots of rain here, I've captured the beauty of it on the temple grounds today while at a wedding for one of our YSA person's (our ex-president).
This flower is shaped like a heart, so it is perfect to start my "love the rain" post.

  1. Our family has always called the heart shaped flowers "bleeding hearts" although I have no idea what the name actually is. It is one of my favorites but I haven't had any luck growing them.
