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! :-)

It's #RootsTech Giveaway Time!

In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time. What I learned is that RootsTech has something for everyone, from the most beginner of beginners to professional DNA genealogists. If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech! RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events. 

After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address. 

Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer. I can't wait to hear his story!

RootsTech 2020 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and is bound to be the best one yet! I have been delighted to be accepted as an official RootsTech ambassador. One of the perks is that I received a c…

Ten Things of Thankful: Nearly Christmas Edition

This is a busy time of year, and though it isn't as busy for me as it has been in past years, my to-do list still seems longer than the hours in the days. However, I find that when I spend time to focus on the reason for the season, I can feel the joy of Christmas and the tasks-at-hand fall back into their proper place. This week I had the opportunity to attend some wonderful events, and I'd love to take you along for a virtual tour:

Let's start at the Conference Center on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, last Friday night. The Tabernacle Choir joined with the Orchestra at Temple Square and the Bells on Temple Square, along with dancers and guest artists Kelli O'Hara and Richard Thomas, to present a spectacular Christmas concert. Although I couldn't record any of the performance, the following 2-minute video from the church provides an overview:




The last time John and I had attended a Christmas concert by the Tabernacle Choir, they were still holding those conc…

Ten Things of Thankful: So Long, October!

Although the number of good moments in October outnumbered the sad, I'm still thankful it is now November!

November brings:
1. a time change. I'm thankful that mornings will be lighter earlier.
2. John's birthday. I'm thankful for him, and love thinking of ways to make his day special.
3. Drexel's birthday. He will be 7 years old this month. Time passes so quickly! I'm thankful for him; he's a good dog. 
4. Thanksgiving. I'm thankful we have a designated day to remember to be thankful.
5. Oldest granddaughter's birthday. She will also be 7 this month. Time passes so quickly! I'm thankful for her; she's a sweet girl.

Other things I'm thankful for this week:
6. Books. I read Educated  and started It's All Relative. Educated is thought-provoking on many levels. I'm looking forward to finishing It's All Relative; I started it in the Baker City Public Library while waiting for our van to be repaired. My copy from Amazon should arrive late…
