when in doubt


On Sunday, I taught Relief Society,

which I was nervous about--

because these days its hard enough to form a sentence (I'm tired a lot).

But getting up in front of 50 people (women)?


And so I made a craft project (bookmarks),

to remind us where to go when things are scary (the scriptures).

Because it seemed like the thing to do.

And it was.

Plus, one girl told me afterward that I looked sexy (high-waisted pencil skirt+ruffled blouse),

which is generally the look I am going for at church.

And it wasn't so scary after all.


  1. I was thinking about you yesterday! Wish I could have been there! It was nice to visit you and I love that you humor me with medical questions all the time! I love you!!!

  2. I'm glad it wasn't as scary as you thought it would be. I had total faith in you all along! The bookmarks are a great idea! Lasts way longer then chocolate!

  3. Way to rock the RS circuit! I hope those women know how lucky they are. There are no sexy-crafty girls in my neighborhood.

  4. when in doubt bringing gifts/treats to class is always a good idea. way to bring sexy back. xo

  5. I bet you looked sexy in your high waisted pencil skirt and ruffly blouse! I can just picture you :) AND you topped it all off with a chic little bookmark...
    Because everyone knows that the only things that really matter in a RS lesson are your hand-out, treat, and centerpiece.

  6. "Because everyone knows that the only things that really matter in a RS lesson are your hand-out, treat, and centerpiece." Joan, that was priceless!
    I bet you did look hot! All that long blond hair,was it the black skirt,red thick belt, and white blouse? You look so good in that,such a sense of style.
    Love your bookmarks. Do you have any left?OX,Mom

  7. the bookmarks are darling. wish i could have been there to hear your lesson. (and see your sexy outfit ;)

    miss you.

  8. I'm bummed I missed your lesson. Jake and I were sick in bed that day.

  9. love those colors!! so bright and happy. I think if I'd been in your RS lesson, I would have stuck that bookmark up on my mirror just for the shot of color first thing in the morning.
