Linescratchers radio: One of my favorite music blogs has now become its own experimental radio station. Click in to learn more and to listen to some awesome Mormon artists like Haun’s Mill, Fictionist, Neon Trees, Calm Paradox, Cary Judd, The Happies and more! Awesome.
Sister missionaries: Have or know of a sister missionary going out on a mission soon, as part of the exciting sister missionary surge? Then check out these ideas for “Sister Missionary Countdowns” that could be used to both count down the days until she goes on a mission, or until she gets back. One is a free printable, the other a wood-block craft. Love it!
