My Dear Sisters

My friend Mariann [she was our Primary secretary until very recently -- she and her family will be moving to Arizona soon] gave me a sweet gift this past week. The book "My Dear Sisters" by Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley is a new addition to my bookshelves, and I love it already.

There are uplifting thoughts by both Pres. Hinckley and his wife, Marjorie. And it's filled with really beautiful art work by over 30 LDS artists. It's a small book but a lovely one. Check it out here.

Thank, Mariann! You made my day. You're a dear friend and I already miss you.

I just a post that Val left on my blog. Tell her thank you and I was so excited to have someone comment on Moronis Quest who has "been there-done that". My daughter Michelle bore such a neat testimony on Sunday during Sacrament meeting about how her perspective has changed about the Book of Mormon and that she is happier. I have seen a difference in her actions and attitude....she has always been a good girl but for her, Moronis Quest has been a plus and a huge bonus for our family.
