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: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…
