A Must

A must see. I learned of this exhibit from my sister-in-law Abby- and I'm so glad she let us know about it. If you have not seen the work of this artist in Reflections of Christ- you need to click here. If you're in the Mesa, AZ area, you must go see this art exhibit in person at the Mesa Temple Visitors Center... and then tell me all about it! :)

I should mention that I got a surprise in the mail yesterday... some Good Mail from Holly. After my encounter with the "helpful" lady at the store, she ordered this for me.
Isn't that so nice?! I've already started reading it. It's an excellent book- a real pep talk for all mothers. A must read if you haven't yet. Thank you SO MUCH Hol!

Jillie was excited to see this book. She's a big fan of Jane Clayson Johnson ever since she learned about her this year. Jillie would love to follow in her footsteps- to be a famous news anchor and then a mother too. When she found out Jane Clayson Johnson would be at Time Out for Women next month she begged to go with me. She wants so badly to meet her and have her sign the paper Jillie wrote about her. :) I hope we'll be able to do this! So it looks like Jillie and I will be in Toronto May 30-31 for Time Out for Women. Anyone else wanna go along too?? :) The more women the merrier! A must do.

Time out is amazing - I wish I could go with you! That will be a great experience to have Jillie go with you.
I got that book last year and absolutely LOVED it and agree it is a must read. That is "good mail" for sure :)

I just found out about the Reflections on Christ today too and it was so great, huh?

That is so awesome that Holly sent you that in the mail. Sisters really are the best! Your relationship with your sisters is so awesome sounding!

I'm going to put that book on my list of reads. I think that is soooo cool that your daughter has a hero like that!

I love getting new book ideas. Let me know what you think when you are finished, but it looks like one I'll need to get!

Holly said...

I am glad that you like the book. It is a real "you are a good mom" booster. I hope you find time- while being a mom- to read it! :)

I wish I could go to Time Out for Women! They seem soo great! Kind of like EFY for adults? :) Hope you have fun and take lots of notes.

Nik, I am so glad you finally got the book. I gave a copy to Holly last summer to read & then pass on to you and Sunny. I hear she sent Sunny the book and bought one for you and her. I think it's a great book. Enjoy. Take it on your anniversary getaway.
