And now January babies will be alone in Primary for months. It's swings and roundabouts.

But that's not how it works really? The entire class advances at once. There is no longer the Valiant 11 class. January - December babies all move forward at the same time. They stay with their peers they've been with from the beginning.

Buckle up, bishoprics!

My 11-year-old is going to be so excited to move into YW in January with all her class... and she can do baptisms with her sisters now! I have one December baby that was alone in Primary for months before she turned 12. This is exciting news.

Plain old secrets don't become Secret Combinations (tm), until paired with naughty deeds intended to get gain.  And no matter what some may claim, torturing people with Elf on the shelf stuff doesn't really rise to that level.  It's more of a Secret Blend, or possibly Secret Hodgepodge.  Secret Plethora at the most.

(Grunt, did you know Nauvoo has a private FB group?) One of the FB Admins can give you more info.

PG, thanks for bringing that up. I've created a post with instructions on what to do. It's now a pinned post in General Discussion.

Thank you both. That is enormously helpful insight. After all these years I still forget about the way depression alters my thought patterns and how much more vulnerable I am to Satanís beatings (Iíve actually been beating myself up for beating myself up). Iím going to be getting some more help with that starting in January.

Thankfully, my husbandís newish job is going very well and they take good care of him. My job isnít ďneededĒ anymore. But it was a job doing really good things, and with my family. The way it ended meant not only the end of a job, but a mission, and hurt one of my sisters deeply. She means the world to me so in a way her pain is also mine... and the way in which this has been handled has caused some painful rifts between us and our other sister (who I also love but would like to smack some sense into).

Anyway. Lots of stuff, yes, and I will work on changing my approach. Thank you! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

I love her. That is all.

I'll admit I was a suck-up to Gracie sometimes. I hoped that by engaging with her, she would write more, and some of her astute observations and witty style would rub off on me.  Never happened.  ;D

On Friday evening, November 23, I was sealed to my parents in the South Carolina Columbia Temple.  Isn't it mind-boggling how an earthly experience that took less than ten minutes has eternal implications?  I'm still walking on air.

Patty, we've loved Spain, but the people in Portugal are friendlier, and that makes all sorts of difference to us. Okay, so we've been here for only two days, and long term will tell us more, but on expat sites where people talk about their experiences in both Spain and Portugal, Portugal comes out on top with friendliness of the people every time.

I wish you much success with your blog, however you define success. :)

Dyany, much success to you with your web business. :)

I'm not recovered yet, but I'm getting better. Yay.

I have been talking with Dyany today and yesterday.  She has been helping me with my blog.  Considering I met her here then I think I need to share the blog here as well.   :)https://littlesprinklesoflight.com/

I've felt like I needed to do it for 2-3 years.  I tried and quit because some of the technicalities were overwhelming me.  After conference I started feeling much strong that I need to start it again.  So I tried and tried and even cried a little and then posted on facebook and Dyany came to the rescue.  She was well worth the cost.

Forum and Member News / Requesting prayers for a dear friend of mine
« on: November 15, 2018, 11:26:00 am »
Susan and I went to high school together.  I graduated a year ahead of her.  She's a magnificent person; kind, warmhearted, retired teacher who motivated her students throughout the years.  This is what she posted on Facebook yesterday:

Some news for my Facebook Friends:
Because of an unusual cough that began in early May, I had a chest x ray and then a CT scan in June. The CT scan showed that I have cancer of the bone in such areas as two vertebrae, several ribs, my lumbar region and my right collar bone (!). It was also determined that cancer is present in the lymph nodes under my right arm. After weeks of MRIs, biopsies and a PET scan, it was determined I have breast cancer that has metastasized to my bones.

I, of course, was stunned. There have been, however, an astounding number of blessings throughout this journey. One is that I have had no pain. I could have found out about the cancer because I was in excruciating pain. An unbelievable thing is that my niece Dr. C, [full name redacted]/i], is the world expert on breast cancer metastasizing to the brain (Thank goodness I donít have it in my brain). C is 44 years old, is beautiful inside and out, and is smart as a whip. C (who is at UNC Chapel Hill) and Dr. Matt Rees, the oncologist at the Levine Cancer Center of Rutherford County, have worked together on many cases. They, therefore, are collaborating on my treatment plan. Anyway, long story short, I am being treated with hormonal therapyódrugs that target and destroy the cancer cells. This is not a form of chemotherapy.

I am able to do all treatments here in Rutherford County. I have two shots of Faslodex once a month. The next day I begin a cycle of taking the pill, Ibrance, 21 days in a row. You may have seen Ibrance advertised daily on TV. I have not experienced side effects like nausea or loss of hair. I am closely monitored for changes in my blood and platelet counts. At the end of three weeks, the largest lymph node reduced in size, indicating that treatments were already affecting the cancer! I am able to carry on my normal daily activities. I have reduced and spaced out my activities and do get more rest. So, for a very serious illness, I have the best possible situation.
The love, prayers, and support that I have received in the last few months have been astounding. I am so blessed and thankful.

Please include Susan and her medical support team in your prayers.

Forum and Member News / Mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, CA
« on: November 08, 2018, 12:44:59 pm »
Thirteen dead, including the gunman.

Thousand Oaks is my hometown. I grew up there and lived most of my life within about 25 miles of there. Even though we've moved away, we still go there often. We have many friends who live there. This hurts. Really really hurts.
