MONDAY MEMO June 10 - 15

Good Morning dear Sisters!

I have always loved hearing men's voices singing - a little Josh Groban, Harry Connick Jr, even some Bar J Wranglers. The sound I heard at last night's Stake Priesthood Meeting gave me more chills than Michael Buble can. I was filled with awe and gratitude for the strong, faithful and powerful men that surround us in this stake. As they sang the chorus of "Hope of Israel"  ....rise in might, with the sword of truth and right, I felt assured of the sacred trust these men hold to honor, protect and defend women and children and families.

This coming weekend we have the opportunity to honor the good men in our lives. Let's make sure they know of our love and appreciation for the many ways they honor their priesthood. 

I hope you are enjoying your summer, and that your gardens are growing and your air conditioners are in good working condition!

Next week's Memo will be through the Lindon 11th Relief Society Blog. Did you even know there was one? 

Much love to you all!

Bryce and Rilee Nyberg are newlyweds living in the Perl basement apartment. Bryce is the one with the "cars." Yes, some of us notice those kinds of things - and like it!
