This girl 🤦🏻♀️😆. She’s been sneaking cupcakes all day! •
We’re pretty much killing Monday over here. Dance parties, cleaning, diapers in the wash, sewing projects on my table and happy-ish kids. We’re just going to pretend my car didn’t get towed to the shop and cross our fingers that the pretend car isn’t too expensive to fix...ah!
we are applying for a program THIS WEEK for our year abroad! i am so so so excited to embark on this new, exhilarating &&challenging experience with my angel of a husband! •
do you know about our year abroad?! it all started when i was on my mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in singapore &&malaysia! i was on a visa run in indonesia && was staying with this newlywed couple in their hut right next to the ocean. the husband had served in indonesia&&was working with a company, and his wife was teaching english && helping out with local members of the church. she told me it was the absolute BEST thing for their marriage. being away from family and a familiar culture was challenging, but it forced them to rely on each other and build their own, new family unit.
from then on, that's what i wanted for my future family.
so here we are! i'm just so lucky i found a guy who's on board! 😜 while we would love for our whole year to be full of service, we will be mixing in some work&&travel, too! if you want to donate towards our humanitarian work, we will be setting up a gofundme page shortly!
make sure to subscribe to our youtube && tell your friends about our instagram, because you're about to be blown away with inspiration!!! 💛💛💛 thank you for all your love && support! we couldn't be happier!
country reveal soon!!! 🔆

I’m radically passionate about this. I’m frequently exhausted by the misgivings of “atonement talk” in the church. Recently, I heard someone say that “the atonement” guides her. Another said “the atonement” comforts him. These statements betray the awful reality that unbridled, non-theological “atonement talk” EFFECTIVELY REMOVE THE GODHEAD FROM OUR FAITH. “The atonement” doesn’t guide; the Holy Ghost guides. “The atonement” doesn’t comfort; Jesus sends us the Comforter. And what more? “The atonement” doesn’t heal; Jesus heals. “The atonement” doesn’t cleanse us; the Father cleanses us by sending the Redeemer and the Spirit. “The atonement” doesn’t help us; the Godhead helps us. If we continue to speak and think that “the atonement” does everything, we will continue to remove the Godhead from our theology, and we will find our faith breaking itself upon an altar not built for the God of all creation.
Part 2 (Did Joseph Smith Make up Book of Mormon Geography and Maps? No) and Part 3 (Did the Book of Mormon Plagiarize Other Books? No) are out. The full YouTube video links are in the bio. A bonus episode about the concerns and doubts about the Book of Mormon Translation is on its way. Feel free to hit me up with any comments are questions. Hit me with any comments or questions that you have. “For 179 years this book has been examined and attacked, denied and deconstructed, targeted and torn apart like perhaps no other book in modern religious history—perhaps like no other book in any religious history. And still it stands. Failed theories about its origins have been born and parroted and have died—from Ethan Smith to Solomon Spaulding to deranged paranoid to cunning genius. None of these frankly pathetic answers for this book has ever withstood examination because there is no other answer than the one Joseph gave as its young unlearned translator. In this I stand with my own great-grandfather, who said simply enough, “No wicked man could write such a book as this; and no good man would write it, unless it were true and he were commanded of God to do so.” Safety for the Soul, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, Oct 2009 General Conference

Ada tertulis di dalam KITAB SUCI bahwa Allah berfirman begini:
وَإِذْ قَالَ عِيسَى ٱبْنُ مَرْيَمَ يَٰبَنِىٓ إِسْرَٰٓءِيلَ إِنِّى رَسُولُ ٱللَّهِ إِلَيْكُم مُّصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَىَّ مِنَ ٱلتَّوْرَىٰةِ وَمُبَشِّرًۢا بِرَسُولٍ يَأْتِى مِنۢ بَعْدِى ٱسْمُهُۥٓ أَحْمَدُ ۖ فَلَمَّا جَآءَهُم بِٱلْبَيِّنَٰتِ قَالُوا۟ هَٰذَا سِحْرٌ مُّبِينٌ ﴿٦﴾ Dan (ingatlah) ketika Isa putra Maryam
berkata, “Wahai Bani Israil! Sesungguhnya aku utusan Allah kepadamu, yang membenarkan kitab (yang turun) sebelumku, yaitu Taurat dan memberi kabar gembira dengan seorang Rasul yang akan datang setelahku, yang namanya Ahmad (Muhammad).” Namun ketika Rasul itu datang kepada mereka dengan membawa bukti-bukti yang nyata, mereka berkata, “Ini adalah sihir yang nyata.” (Ash-Shaff 61:6)
And when Jesus son of Mary said: O Children of Israel! Lo! I am the messenger of Allah unto you, confirming that which was (revealed) before me in the Torah, and bringing good tidings of a messenger who cometh after me, whose name is the Praised One. Yet when he hath come unto them with clear proofs, they say: This is mere magic. (Ash-Shaff 61:6)
on saturday, i was baptised. on sunday, i was a confirmed member. i cannot tell you how happy this has made me ! ive been looking into this church for months and its felt right as soon as i started. the first time i held my Book of Mormon i knew it was right. something in me had brought me to it, and i couldnt be happier. the first time i walked through the church doors and shook hands with the members, it felt like a dream. finally i was surrounded with people who felt the same way i did. it still feels like a dream when i go to church. but above anything, it feels like home. it feels like ive finally got a (almost) stable family 😂
i couldnt ask for anything better!
We're Back! ... mostly! Talking about the expansion of the McCarthy clan ... a precursor to our examination of Mormonism ... rumination on past topics, Infinite Jest, hyenas, Road Rules, COPS, home ownership & gentrification in Portland, and future episodes ...
