My Friend Dyanne Must Have Prompted This

So, in her Ten Things of Thankful post this weekend, my friend Dyanne mentioned that one of the children in her preschool class announced during circle time that she (the child, though I assume it applied to Dyanne, too) was wearing underwear.  Dyanne later asked her blog readers, "What are you thankful for this week? How's your hair? Wearing underwear?"

I answered that my hair was in need of a cut, and yes, I was wearing underwear.  Dyanne responded with another question:
Always good to know underwear status of my friends.
Am I the only one who ever wondered about this?!

Well, Dyanne, this is your lucky day.  I really don't remember ever before having a conversation with my friends about my underwear, but apparently you aren't the only one wondering about underwear status.  

Today this church-produced video came out, explaining about the underwear I wear:

Well, Dyanne, there you have it.  You probably didn't expect me to have a video to explain my underwear status.  Quite frankly, I didn't expect to, either, but when I saw that this video came out the same weekend you posed your questions, I just had to use it!  

Thankful thought:  Thanks for underwear, and friends with questions.  


  1. I didn't know this. Thanks for the lesson. Good to know that I'm not the only one who wonders about the most silly details and how others feel about something...
    I do like my underwear though - always black by the way - and my hair is a mess right now, but just not in the mood to do something about it.

    1. Well, underwear is not exactly a common topic of conversation, but since Dyanne asked, and the video had just been published, I thought I'd share. :-)

  2. What a fabulous video! The church is really being open and candid for the world. What a blessing to see another part of the Hastening of the Work.

    1. I agree that the video did a good job of explaining about garments and temple clothing.

  3. Kristi -- that was so interesting. I had heard of the Morman undergarments but now I feel educated. :) I think anything that serves as a daily reminder of God and call to holiness is certainly a good thing. Thanks for sharing.

    1. You're welcome; I'm glad you feel educated now. :-) Wearing the garment does help me remember God daily.

  4. Funny how that all worked out. :)

  5. Who knew that statement by a 3 year old would lead to such a fascinating lesson! I had read once about the undergarments, but I never really knew what was meant until now. Thank you for sharing the video! It was really interesting! You always do such a good job explaining your religion and your faith, and I love learning from you.

    And now I know you will always be able to answer "yes" to the question, "Are you wearing underwear?" :)

    1. I could hardly believe that video would come out the same weekend you posed the underwear statement. Your preschool student has no idea what a conversation she has started!

      Glad you enjoyed the religion lesson. And you're right, with very few exceptions--like swimming--I will always be able to answer "yes" to that question.

  6. I had now idea - that is really fascinating, Kristi. Thanks for sharing that bit of information.

    1. It doesn't usually come up in conversation--unless it's an election year and Mitt Romney is running. :-)

Conversations are so much nicer when more than one person does the talking. :-) Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts; I'd love to hear from you!

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…
