The Philadelphia Pennsylvania Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. When it is dedicated on 22 September 2016, it will be the 152nd Mormon temple in the world. We may still be in the middle of looking for an apartment, but we needed a break, and we would have been remiss had we missed the open house. (at Philadelphia Mormon Temple)

A dedicated teacher can open a whole new world. For me, that teacher was Mrs. Ellen Bensley.A dedicated teacher can open up a whole new world. For me, that teacher was Mrs. Ellen Bensley. Twenty years ago (?!) next month I started seventh grade at Carmel Middle School in Charlotte. My first class of seventh grade — and my first-period class throughout the year — was French with Mrs. Bensley. I had never been interested in learning a foreign language. But that all changed the year…View On WordPress

My favorite mission story
All we had to go on was a name, a street, and a postal code. But sometimes you find the needle in the haystack.All we had to go on was a name, a street, and a postal code. But sometimes when things seem like they’re not working out, that’s exactly how they’re supposed to work out. One Monday in Nuremberg, my companion, Sister Clark, and I received a referral.

These walkie talkies are the first big thing Fiona has ever saved up for. These are legit walkie talkies, too, not just children’s toys. She has been saving up for months and just paid $43.54 with a $20, a $2, a wad of $1s, and a pile of coins, including dollars, half dollars, dimes, nickels, pennies, and a bunch of quarters. Very impressed with this little six-year-old, and she can’t wait to use her new gear. (at Best Buy)

I have no intention of voting for Mr. McMullin. Words such as “Republican,” “conservative,” and…View On WordPress
