Plaque Attack

Finding really great sayings to put on a plaque or to cut out of vinyl aren’t that hard to find. Here are just five of many I have found while studying scripture:

Many great things are hard to be understood, save a man should inquire of the Lord! (1 Nephi 15:3)

Be like a river – continually running into the Fountain of all Righteousness (1 Nephi 2:9)

The devil cheats souls (2 Nephi 28:21)

Deal justly. Judge righteously. Do good continually (Alma 4:14)

There is nothing in all the land to hinder me from prospering continually, except . . . transgression! (3 Nephi 6:5)

Book Review: The Year of Goodbyes

I read a wonderful book this week entitled The Year of Goodbyes. Taken from the poesiealbum (autograph book) of Jutta (pronounced YUH-tah) Salzberg in the year 1938, who was was a twelve-year-old girl living in Germany during the rise of Adolf Hitler. Jutta’s poesiealbum, filled with writings by her friends and family, sets the stage of what occurred during that year of her life and gives a glimpse of how this young girl felt as political and social views were changing.

This is a beautiful family history story written by Jutta’s daughter, Debbie Levy. And it would be a great read for ages 9-13!

In fact, I think I’m going to read it out loud to my boys!!  Ha - I’ll let you know what they think of that!
