Politics / Re: Voting from home?

I have loved voting by mail here.

I agree Jana. I will send you something I found that is helpful, a meditation mindfulness thing about Christ.
I have never wanted and do not want the Priesthood. But like you, I had hoped for more. You say it perfectly.
I feel like some people feel superior because they get to have the sacrament. I feel some are gloating and apologies for saying this.

What are they doing that makes you feel this way?

I appreciate the conversation as well. I don't want the priesthood either- at least as the men have it.  It just seems that if there is something inherent about me being a female and if I can some day be a priestess that there may be, and probably is, something more for women.  If that is the case I would love whatever Heavenly Father wants to give me.

We talk about all the blessings priesthood holders receive as they do their priesthood duties.  How could I not want that as it relates to women?

It's like the blessings that Heavenly Father gives to parents.  Sometimes you are not ready to be a parent. Sometimes when I think of what Heavenly Father goes through with all his spirit children I don't want to deal with that either, but the blessing of having children has been wonderful and worth it despite the extra work and cost.

So if Heavenly Father has some sort of priesthood for women I hope to be prepared to receive it, but if not I feel fulfilled now because I am trying to do what God wants of me.

I was grateful that Elder Oaks explained how the priesthood authority operates differently in the home from the way it operates in the church.

Not everything has to be a "big change." It's just that there was so much hype about how this would be an historic and unforgettable conference. Maybe it's because of the format. Maybe it's because of the Hosanna Shout on Sunday (really looking forward to that.) Maybe it's more small things, like the change in logo (which I think is really cool.) Maybe we'll know after tomorrow's sessions.

Elder Rasband: Jesus Christ heals us when we have done wrong. He also heals those we have hurt--those we cannot heal by ourselves. What a beautiful and comforting message!

Closing Song: I really hope "Come Thou Fount" makes it into our new hymn book. I love that song. It was really good to see the choir performing in the Tabernacle.

This talk was so healing to me.  So, so healing.  I always knew this intellectually, but I have more understanding in my hart about it now.

I don't know if it's limited by EU privacy laws, or if the presidencies are simply not keeping records remotely properly. Basically, all ministering assignments are supposed to be kept in the software for the ward (MLS or something? I never remember). Has been that way for decades. Now, though, Tools records are updated from the MLS records, including callings, ministering assignments, etc.

The privacy laws make a lot of sense on this. 

Anyone in California not able to see them either?  The laws are not quite the same as the EU, but are much more strict than for most of the rest of us.

Did it need to have English subtitles all the way through?

Not all the way through, but quite a lot.  I should have mentioned that, but I guess I watch enough stuff with subtitles, I just take it for granted.  Sorry! :-[

Taalcon, thanks for that recommendation.  CrowMan and I wondered.

Thank you. I often clean the house or crochet when "watching." I actually would have loved to keep watching it the other day, but my daughter wasn't feeling well and asked we watch something else.

Zoey  Is singing a lot tonight. Is that new? I have missed a few episodes

 Wow it's hard to imagine them being able to emotionally go anywhere after that tour DE force

It is the first time she has sung. Interesting how that went - who she sang to and how it was different than when others sing to her.  (I don't want to spoil things).

Since ministering assignments became available online I often find changes that were made in the people I am ministered to or by or my companion.  I don't usually find this out till I or someone else involved looks at the tools.

Is this just poor communication or is tools supposed to be notifying me somehow?

CrowMan, CrowDaughter and I watched The Two Popes tonight.  Excellent.  The casting was perfection.  As non-Catholics, we learned a bit about some of those traditions.  As someone who knew a little bit about these men, I learned more.  I understood where they were coming from, and what has cast them.  The Argentine accent was real.  The cinematography was very good.  I squealed at the scenes in the Sistine Chapel; a place I was lucky enough to visit once and would dearly love to go again (but not in the summer).  The music, hmmm.  Not what you would expect in this film.  There were some political scenes that felt heavy-handed, like the director was trying to make a point, that did not add to the film, but they were short moments that I could overlook.  I seem to recall both men were nominated for Oscars; very deserving.  I highly recommend.

The last scene, of Benedict and Francis watching the 2014 World Cup; excellent! ;D

Did it need to have English subtitles all the way through? We started watching it and really enjoyed what we watched, but sometimes I need/want shows where I can mostly listen and don't have to watch the screen. This one seemed like I would need to watch it nearly the entire time and would be good for another time.

Although BYU will not have a graduation ceremony this April, CrowSon still needs a graduation present.  Hereís the quilt top, finished 10 minutes ago.  Itís comprised of shirts and other, ahem, favorite items of clothing worn between 1996-2010.  And yes, itís yuuuge!  It will make a great picnic/beach/family snuggle/blanket fort quilt.

How is he dealing with it?  Right now we are in limbo about my daughter's graduation ceremony.  It isn't scheduled till May, but she is really struggling that it may be canceled.

If I was unclear, I must say we paid someone else to do the quilting!  I was not about to teach myself on this project. 

Here is one I machine-quilted, however.  Another quilt top in Motherís closet; weíre guessing late 1950s/early 1960s.  She marked how she wanted it quilted, so all I had to do was respect her wishes.  Mother helped pick the backing, I quilted (in one day; I have no craft room to leave things unfinished) and bound it (ETA over many days).  It was a good project to work on while sitting with her in the hospital.  Some days, it looked familiar to her.  I finished on 2 January, and itís on my Queen-sized bed.  It is warm, and I love the feel of laying on top of it.

There is one more unfinished quilt top.  It cried out to be hand-quilted.  I was going to learn on it, but CrowMan helped me see realityótime is of the essence.  The Hawaiian quilter has a new job.

I have a quilt that looks quite similar.  My husband's grandma made it for him.

This hadn't occurred to me before. The Sistas in Zion facebook page is talking about what is happening with baptisms, sealings etc. Many families are still having baptisms, but it is "family only" which I take to mean immediate family.  With the change with female and younger males witnesses this is able to happen in many families without so many extra men.

This would be nice even with no church.  I am teaching 5 year olds and that makes a little different conversation than with adults.

Ok, now that I say that I wonder what I want to do with my class. At the end of our classes we give them something simple to do that goes along with the lesson.  Last week it was "play with someone who is different than you".  Other weeks it has been "remember to pray" or draw a picture of you helping someone and show us next week".  Sometimes they just need to tell us about it, sometimes bring something back.

We were having almost no participation or reporting on it so we started giving out little things if they did. Things that only cost 25 cents or less, mostly from my scrapbook days like a sticker, bookmark, etc. Nothing real ect.

We have had more participation and conversation that results from the participation.

This week was going to be "share something".

So now I'm wondering...I send a group text each week to parents telling them what the thing is so if their child forgets what it is they can ask their parents.  So what if they replied via their parent's text and then for those that participate I send a link of a gif or a short video or a joke.
