New film Freetown from the creators of The Saratov Approach

I am sharing this because The Saratov Approach was beyond words. Step into the life and times of faith not only in The Saratov Approach which is now available on Netflix, but in this captivating depiction of faith in action which is coming soon.

Have a blessed day,


Garrett Batty, the writer/director of the excellent true story adventure film The Saratov Approach, is returning to the big screen with another true-life adventure that chronicles other experiences by Mormon missionaries a world away from the ones in Saratov: the film is Freetown, based on the journey that several missionaries took from their war-torn African home.

The film has been in production for some time, and it will be released in just a few short weeks, on April 8th!

Check out the trailer below, and then call your friends and schedule a time to go check it out:

The “I told you so”

Woke up this morning feeling like I got run over by a bus.  Of course the amazing Mister J dragged me to the doctor where I was scolded for waiting to go in after I lost my voice and also was on the receiving end of an epic I told you so.

Of course it was well deserved.  I did talk them into letting me go back to work after the stomach flu on Wednesday as log as I didn’t spike another fever or get sick again.

“Sometimes we actually need to rest after we’ve been that sick to make sure we don’t get taken out by something else while our immune systems recover” or something like that.

Yes, I am very stubborn.  I’m a work-a-Hollic that loves where she works and what she does and enjoys getting everything that I can possibly get out of each and every day.  

In this case, my go go go go getter way of life has kncocked me on my rear and it’s taking a little longer than normal to get up this time.  Worse, we miss out on the rodeo and Willie Nelson tonight but there’s an amazing newbie to Austin at work who is taking our tickets and heading out to the rodeo.

Me?  Well….. I don’t know. I’m tired, funky and fighting the crud.  My goal of being ready to attack the world on Monday may not be happening.  

All that aside, in feeling down. I missed Lego Wars with the young women, stake recreation day and there’s no way I’ll be up and moving for church tomorrow.  Saving my germs for me, me, me!  Me, myself and Mister J.

Life is full of ups and downs and today we just happen to be looking at a few downs. The good news is I have a day and a half to try knocking this thing down.  

Here’s hoping!

I think we’re going to need a bigger board

Today was employee appreciation day.  We put up a board and added tags to it about the people we appreciate.  I put up a dozen plus tags.

We definitely need a bigger board.

I appreciate all of you and I am grateful that faith allows me to live, breathe, love and to get to know all of you.
