Be Still My Soul

A stake rep invited the congregation sing this hymn during his talk. Really beautiful and comforting. Not a dry eye in the joint.

Average Convos Ft. Moose

Roommate: “How did your tour with the kindergartners go?”

Me: “Good- though most of them thought Moose were carnivores.”

*lols*

Roommate: “Oh my god, that’s hilarious.”

Roommate: "Wait…actually that’s a terrifying image."

Me: "You’re telling me! I’m gonna have nightmares about weremoose for weeks!"

Anonymous asked: Can you give the citations for coffee staying in your system for many years? I've never heard that before and would like to see the research :)

HAHAHA. I totally misspoke (miswrote?). I meant, the effects of coffee on your system can last decades (heightened cholesterol from cafestol residues, carcinogens, etc.).  This is why you don’t answer asks after pulling an all-nighter. 

Anonymous asked: Do you have a favourite hymn?

There Is a Green Hill Far Away. Love, love, love that hymn. :)

Meridian Magazine - A YSA Bishop Talks to the Sisters About Intimacy

I had a bishop that came to Young Women’s annually to give talks similar to this. I laughed and cried on the inside; laughed because what he was perpetuating was beyond ridiculous, and cried because I knew there were young, impressionable girls that believed him.

Anonymous asked: If you look at it from a scientific perspective, wouldn't you find following the WoW beneficial????

I never said it wasn’t. There’s plenty of research to back up how coffee can stay in your system for decades, and it’s a fact that alcohol stomps all over your brain.

There is a Two and a Half Men Charlie Sheen obvi. Ashton…just no scene that sums up my feelings about the WoW

Anonymous asked: Do you consider yourself a theistic evolutionist?

I’m somewhere on that spectrum I suppose.

"The most noble kind of beauty is that which does not carry us away suddenly,
whose attacks are not violent or intoxicating but which infiltrates slowly,
what we carry along with us almost unnoticed,
and meet up with again in dreams.
"
