Meet the Mormons and Help the Red Cross


I mentioned in August that I had a chance to preview an upcoming movie. I'm looking forward to Friday, October 10th,  when Meet the Mormons will be released to theaters nationwide.  I intend to see it again. 



 

This is not a proselytizing movie; it's not like a Sunday School lesson, and no missionaries will be hanging around the theater.  It is an uplifting film highlighting six individuals who are trying to live their lives in a positive way.  Each story holds universal appeal, and all proceeds of the film go to the Red Cross.   (Years ago, I had an opportunity to hear Gail Halvorsen speak, and I have been fascinated with his story ever since.  Learning about his story is reason alone to see the film!) 


You can see if the film will be opening in your area, by clicking here.  I hope you will come join me in the theaters this weekend!  

Do you know a Mormon in real life?

  1. I would like to see the movie, but the chances are slim. So far, it's only going to be playing on the north side of Indy, an hour away from here.
    I'm pretty sure we've talked about my brother and his wife being Mormon.

    1. It is my understanding that after it runs in theaters, it will also be made available online. I don't know if that means Netflix, Youtube, or some other site, but in any case, there should be an opportunity for you to see it at some point.

      Yes, I remember that your brother and his wife are Mormon.

  2. Yes! One of the new PTA moms is Mormon as is her entire family. She is awesome and very open to questions about her faith. I've known a few others in my life and I love how family oriented they all are.

  3. Sounds like an excellent movie definitely something different than all those gory movies they are showing.
    Now, I just need a babysitter.

  4. It will never play in our little town, but I certainly can support anything that supports the Red Cross!

  5. I haven't heard of that movie yet.. I admit that I've been bugging my resistant daughters to go see the creepy doll movie with me ~ think I might have to bribe them with something.
    Hope that you have a wonderful tuesday

    1. Well, this is nothing like that creepy doll movie, so maybe they'll agree to it! :-)

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
