Sharon Langston and her husband, Reid, have just moved into 13603 Bridle Trail Circle (the Norberg's former home). They have five children from age 11 to 18 months and a baby girl is expected in September. Sharon grew up in San Jose, CA, attended UVSC where she met her husband. They have come from the Holladay, Utah area. For hobbies Sharon mentions camping in a tent. She also loves "girls night out". We hope everyone will take time to get acquainted with this busy homemaker. Phone: 801-523-1205.

Go Jessie!

Jessie Scott moved all five toes on his right foot last night--for the very first time! He loves his new therapy where he goes swimming Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Keep up the good work, Jessie!

Temple Service Opportunity

There is a great opportunity to serve in the temple during the day for a couple of hours once a month. If anyone is interested contact Jolynn Skousen for details.

FYI - Hollee Mackay

Hollee Mackay is going in for Knee Surgury tomorrow in Hong Kong. She has a torn ACL they will be fixing. It would be nice to keep her in our prayers.

New Resource!!

You asked - and we heard!

We have such wonderful cooks in our ward, and we are always asking for a copy of this recipe or that recipe. Well - search no more!

We now have a CC2 Recipe Blog! This will be a Great Place to consolidate and store all those much requested recipes, and this way - we can all get a copy! (Just look over on the sidebar, and you will see a link you can click on to visit the recipe blog!)

All we need you to do is make sure that when someone says, "Yum - I would love a copy of that recipe!" - or even if you just have one you Know we would all want! - forward it to us!

Then we can get it posted, and we can all know right where to find it!

Happy Cooking!

Good News - 4/19/09

Here is some of the "Good News" that was shared in RS today:

Monica Sturdevant shared that she & Charlie & their girls will be sealed as a family in the Salt Lake Temple on April 30, their anniversary!

Shawn & Florencia Mikkelson will be being sealed this Thursday.........

And - (keeping the temples busy!) - Dustin & Andrea Miller will be sealed to their baby Avery very soon - Congrats to all!!

Linda Douglas' grandson was called to serve a mission in India.

Linda Miller will be heading to Florida with her son, Jake, as he competes in a national competition - good luck!

(Not "Good" news, but Important News, nonetheless!!) - Cutler's house was broken into around 1 am in the morning the night after they got back in town this past week --baseball bat through the front window. She says get your mail each day, pick up your newspapers and leave your porch light on at night.

Save the date.....May 14th @ 6:30 pm

Please mark your calendars for our upcoming activity in May. We will be privileged to hear from the "Utah Famous" Matt Townsend! He is a national speaker and relationship expert who empowers people and organizations to succeed by teaching them fundamental skills of positive and effective communication and productive relationships. Through entertainment and HUMOR, he teaches life-changing principles and skills to increase success and productivity. He can be heard every Saturday at 11:00 am, hosting his radio program "The Matt Townsend Show", on KSL News Radio. He is also a frequent visitor on "Studio 5". He is working on a new book that will be released soon, "Feeding the Starved Relationship". We are very fortunate that he is willing to come and speak to our ward, and we hope that you will all make an extra effort to come, and bring your friends, sisters, neighbors, or anyone else you think could benefit. It is sure to be an amazing night, and you can't pass up yummy desserts too! We will begin at 6:30 in the RS room. Look forward to seeing you there!

A Shared Experience....

I keep thinking about a sweet experience I had in the temple yesterday and wanted to share it with the Sisters.......

A young man around 13 came alone early yesterday morning to do work in the baptistry. Sometime later a woman came to the baptistry recommend desk. She was looking for her son. She said he was autistic and was missing. She said he had come to the temple 3 times before--walking 5 miles to get there. She wondered if he had returned to the temple once again. The brother at the recommend desk asked her if she had a recommend. She said no, "but my son is really helping me feel that I want one." Sure enough, he was there. He had walked alone those many miles to come to the Lord's house to perform sacred ordinances.
