"Beauty confronts us with the requirement that we place ourselves among...the redeemers, the leaders in the protection of life. Once you have seen the bush on fire, you are not going to get out of the assignment unless you close your eyes to the beauty.... [You] either have to close your eyes or go back to Egypt and set the people free." - Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker, "Rising to the Challenge of Our Times"

I was only laughing a little bit on the inside

In the process of completing a form recently, a client told me that she decided to keep her married name after getting divorced so that it would be the same as her son's last name, because she didn't want him to have astigmatism.

Hi Emily,
I found your blog on our mission website. You are the only one that I know that I served a mission with on there. I used to be your roommate in the Bronx. I used to be Hermana Mendiola. Your blog is awesome. I just wanted to say hi. Hope you remember me.
