Quotable Quotes

"You think education is expensive, try ignorance."

It is increasingly difficult to enforce good behavior in my students when unacceptable behavior is so frequently modeled in their everyday lives. "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." -Gandhi.

"Be grateful for people in your lives who love you enough to correct you, to remind you of your standards and possibilities, even when you don't want to be reminded." --Elder Neal A. Maxwell (this is on my wall at school)

Love these quotes.

Beautiful World

If you missed out on the song back in the day entitled, "Beautiful World" by Coldplay, you should check it out.

Today, I drove down to Provo. The thoughts and feelings I associate with that place are really indescribable. I love the familiarity, the goodness, the familiar curves of the mountains. I love the memories that flow from late night WalMart trips, Krispy Kreme runs, and warm summer nights. I miss it. Here are a few pictures. Hopefully they capture the feelings I associate with that little town. To top it all off, I was able to go to Brother Smith's fireside and see some really great EFY and non-EFY friends. I'm a lucky girl :)

Why I can't stop reading Mormon housewife blogs

I love this article. Odds are, you will too...

This is the perspective of a feminist, atheist woman who has a strange addiction with reading married, LDS women's blogs. Turns out, happiness is contagious and REAL. I'm grateful that I too am a happy, optimistic, LDS woman (young woman?). Take a peak.
