Emily Freeman

Emily Freeman took her first creative writing class in high school and has loved writing ever since. She finds great joy in studying the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Her deep love of the scriptures comes from a desire to find their application in everyday life. She is the author of several books, including The Ten Virgins; 21 Days Closer to Christ; and The Promise of Enough.

FHE Packet -
The stake has given us another wonderful FHE packet for us to share with our families.  This one is about missionary work.  It is attached to the email Tracy sent out this week.  

Family History class
is held each Monday from 9:30 - 11.  These are held at the stake center by the 4-way stop on your way to Costco.  If you haven't gone to any classes no worries!  You can attend 1 or as many as you would like.

women's volleyball is this Thursday (and every Thursday through Nov.7th) from 8:30-10:00 pm at the Stake Center.  We had a lot of fun last week.  Everyone is welcome!
Returned Missionary Course...
Sometimes it us harder to return home from a mission than it is to depart.  For this purpose, the Alpine Utah YSA Stake is providing a six-week course that helps returned missionaries...both Elders and Sisters...successfully transistion after their mission.
Parents are also invited to a fireside to help their missionaries transition from full-time missionary service to everyday life, while retaining their spirituality and desire to serve.
Details on both classes are attached to the Relief Society email sent this week.
On the subject of Missionaries...
One of the best movies I've seen all year!
I don't remember hearing about was about the time we were getting our son Geoff ready to leave for Brazil.  I would have been pretty nervous.  This film is so well done...I got pretty teary at times.  This was well worth seeing on our Friday Night Date.
