Have Faith, Be Good


Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

As covenant keepers, we will do the labors that will be required of us in our day.

Prehistoric Animated Cave Drawings!  This is cool!  It makes me want to try making my own!


An ancient script quotes Jesus as saying he has a wife named Mary.  Personally, I like the idea. 

This Finnish PSA shows the effects of alcoholism through the eyes of a child.  It would be nice if it were shown here.  Witnessing children observe their drunk parents is painful. 

Muslims, Mormons and Liberals

What caught my eye this week ...


Did you hear how organic foods are no better nutritionally but may reduce exposure to pesticide residues and antibiotic-resistant bacteria?  Over and over it was reported on the top of the hour radio news in a really snarky "I told you so" manner.  Now I don't usually buy organic food because of budget constraints, but I thought the whole point of buying organic was to avoid the pesticides.  Who ever thought they were more nutritious?

Have you seen Beardo hats and bottle mustaches?!  Bwahahahahaha!

Sometimes I'm really shocked by the LCHF before and after photos.  This one blew my mind.  And the guy is so nonchalant about it.  

Fathead has another good post on thermodynamics.

Oooo.  Gary Taubes and Peter Atia have created the Nutrition Science Initiative!



This week's audience included people from Canada, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Maldives, Malta, Morocco, Russia, United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom!

Everyone should read this book!

To Heaven and Back was a fantastic read!  222 pages and I read it in three days.  Could have read it in one sitting if I had the time.  And there was an unexpected LDS twist (no, this is not an LDS book).  If you would like to see the interview that piqued my interest, you can find it here.

Have Faith, Be Good

My Daily Creed

I believe God's promises are true.
I believe heaven is real.
I believe nothing can separate me from God's love.
I believe God has work for me to do.
I believe God will see me through and carry me when I cannot walk.

Dr. Mary C. Neal, MD
To Heaven and Back

Thank goodness for good neighbors who share their homegrown peaches and Mat's crepes!  The only other things you need are real whipped cream and cinnamon sugar!

21 Ways Rich People Think Differently. 

From 0 to 100 years in 150 seconds (in Dutch)

Noah Kalina took a picture of himself every day for twelve years!  This was both weird and cool.  I want to see a girl do the same thing.

Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs fame wrote Mitt Romney an open letter!  I liked the whole letter, but especially:  "If you read the whole thing, I’ll vote for you in November." and "In the interest of full disclosure I should mention that I wrote a similar letter to President Obama. Of course, that was four years ago, and since I never heard back, I believe proper etiquette allows me to extend the same offer to you now."  :)

Mandy Patinkin did give a Master Class at BYU.   Loved his concert!

And finally, Pioneer Woman's corny jokes made me laugh.  Read them late at night.  They're even better that way.  :)

This week's audience included people from Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Germany, Greece, Poland, Russia, and the United Kingdom!

Have Faith, Be Good

Fear not, I am with thee; oh, be not dismayed,
For I am thy God and will still give thee aid.
I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.

How Firm a Foundation
verse 3

Calorie restriction doesn't add years of life ... at least to monkeys.

You saw that eggs were worse than cigarettes?  Rebuttals here, here, and here.

I agree with this doctor.  That's why I encourage my girls to wear swim shorts.  Very cute swim shorts.

The hidden truths about calories. (to sum up:  everyone reacts differently)
