We Move On...



The announcement came today that Thomas S. Monson was named as the 16th President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I really wanted to watch the announcement on TV but had a doctor's appointment and missed it. I scanned the radio until I heard the news shortly after it was announced. I knew in my heart at that moment that this was how it was supposed to be. Although, the past week has been one of mourning with the passing of Gordon B. Hinckley...I am excited to know that things are continuing as they should. Henry B. Eyring was named as 1st Counselor and Dieter F. Uchtdorf was named as 2nd Counselor. President Monson has always been someone that I have held a great opinion of. His has such an enormous heart and I am proud to say that I sustain all three of these men in their new callings. I have felt the Spirit testify to me that these are the right men for the job. These are men chosen of God to lead and guide this Church in these latter-days.

I was reading my sister-in-law's blog this evening and read her post regarding The Hinckley Challenge. I think that this is a great idea to read the Book of Mormon in 97 days. I'm on board!

Such an enormous task before them, and yet, they are all smiling! Gotta love it! I love the picture. Where did you find it?

Hey Tara - I found it on lds.org. Isn't that a great photo?! Even though they have such a huge job in front of them...they are still just everyday men.
