Others Posts #1

I'm gonna try something new.  I read a lot of blogs that are really great and I think others need to know about them.  I'll let you know about my favorites once a week.

1. I said a few weeks ago on Facebook, that Pinterest was like doing missionary work if you have non-members that 'follow' you, because they see the LDS ideas you are posting as well as the quotes from church leaders.  We'll Jocelyn over at We talk of Christ, We Rejoice in Christ had a great idea.  Pictures that lead directly to The Proclamation on the Family.

2. I started reading "the R house" in 2008.  It's a blog about adoption.  Why the interest?  I can't adopt.  I don't have the money and I believe that a child is "entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony"  Children deserve and need  both a mother and a father.  I can't give both.  I have friends who struggle with infertility, who have lost babies.  What draws me is people who like and yet not like my situation want something that is good, that they have planned for their entire lives and yet can't of their own will get it!   Recently this family had a failed placement.  The mom decided to parent.  This post and the one preceding it explains how they dealt with it.  I read it and just sat there and remembered again why I read this blog.  Why I have the connection I do with all families wanting children. They should have them.  More than a single woman should have them.   (sorry, no fun picture, go there anyway)

3. While I have seen many people parent, mother, etc.  This woman asked for advice and 70 women responded!  Many said "listen to the Spirit" or "follow your motherly intuition".  But others gave books that have helped. Some LDS and other not.  This is her post and the responses.  I also suggest  you read her post on the 20th.  In her career she is replaceable, but as a mother she is not!

4. The theme for the YW and YM for 2012 is "Arise and Shine Forth".  This lady made wands for the girls.  I thought it was so cute.  If I were a girl I would want one. 

5. Need ideas for the RS birthday coming up?  Go here:

6. Mormon mash up: Cold Play and the Priesthood videos watched together!

7. When Wilford Woodruff had his vision of the founding fathers who came asking for their temple work to be done, there were others as well.  Wilford called them Eminent. This is about the women.  A painting was recently created and videos about each one.

I think that's a good start, don't you?  There are so many more.  I invite you to peruse the others on my blog list!
