Utah windstorm: Two different bloggers chronicle the giant windstorm in Northern Utah. In “Withstanding the Wind,” Mormon Soprano describes how frightening the storm was, but even better lists some lessons learned including “Always keep your car gas tank half full” and “Having a flashlight app on your cell phone is very handy” and “Keep your cell phone fully charged.”

Plus, in “Windstorm in Farmington, Utah,” UtahMomof7 describes her whole frightening ordeal, ending with “I actually woke at 4:30 a.m. to finish this post. The Christmas tree lights are on. Peaceful. The stillness of the trees outside is also peaceful. But later I hear the buzz of a chainsaw. We are warm and safe. Much will be learned from this experience.” Hooray!

VT handouts: Need a cute handout to give to your visiting teaching sisters? Here are two to choose from! First is this “December Visiting Teaching” handout that crafts in a beautiful quote from Elder M. Russell Ballard, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve. Or this “December 2011 Visiting Teaching Handout” pulls the quote about our “deliberate and consistent” efforts and makes it dazzle. Click to download and print!
