It is fun reading all about your eights..... I don't know if I can think of anything that will be as interesting as yours..... I'll try

Marie said...

OH, I did love reading all these wonderful things about you. You are an interesting and amazing lady. :-)

Ashley said...

Good movie choices! And I like that you are mostly passionate about people.

Stephanie said...

I love reading your tags...just don't like when they ask you to tag other people. :)

You'll have to do a church history site soon (within the next couple years) and stay with us after Nauvoo. Yay for visitors!

So I hear that The Peacegiver is really good. I just finished his other book "The Holy Secret"... really made me think.

Sundbergs said...

You are so cute. I never knew you wrote children's books but that does not surprise me you are such a talented woman.

Emily said...

You did it! I love how much we have in common! I want to read your children's stories. My Mom got mine privately published you should try it!

Katie said...

I like your taste in movies...I've always been a fan of the old ones and I've seen every one of those.

Glad I could help.
