Carolyn Skerlong's Baby Shower

Well I thought we had a swell turnout for Carolyn’s baby shower. Carolyn got many cute, beautiful and/or useful things for little Molly Cleo Skerlong. I tried to take a few pictures with my iPod to share with you on the blog. They are not the best pictures but, it’s the thought that counts, right? Thank you to all who attended and a special thank you to Lori for opening her house for the fun event. I hope I left you a few of those chocolate covered almonds. They were the bomb. As a matter of fact, everything I tasted was very good!




We are so excited for you and your family!  Thank you for letting us share this special time in your lives with us.

Relief Society schedule for March

Welcome to Relief Society
March 2013

"When you take the path that climbs, that harder path of the Savior, there are rewards along the way. When you do something right, when you resist temptation, when you meet a goal, you will feel very good about it. It is a very different kind of feeling than you have when you violate commandments--an altogether different feeling. It brings a measure of peace and comfort and provides encouragement to press on."

"Love can overpower the undermining effect of selfishness. Love engenders faith in Christ's plan of happiness, provides courage to begin the process of repentance, strengthens the resolve to be obedient to His teachings, and opens the door of service, welcoming in the feelings of self-worth and of being loved and needed."
—Richard G. Scott, "We Love You--Please Come Back", Liahona and Ensign, May 1986
