- Sister Missionaries in SLC: “Other church missions are largely composed of unmarried young men and women. The Temple Square Mission has 200 single women and about 20 senior-married couples. And because of the mission’s dearth of young men, or elders as they are called, the leadership roles normally given to males are filled by the sisters. That is unlike any other mission in the church. The current assistants to the mission president, for instance, are Sister Kara Logie of Connecticut and Sister Irina Weidmann, a third-generation member from Switzerland. District and zone leaders in the mission also are leadership positions assigned to the sisters.”
- I finally read Twilight, the bestselling YA fiction novel that has garnered a lot of attention and accolades. The author, Stephenie Meyer, happens to be LDS (with an article in the December Ensign to prove it!). I found the book and its sequel utterly enchanting — and three of my 8th grade girls who have also devoured them in the last week would swooningly concur. A lyrical romance with fangs. Check out this article about Meyer and this interview in the LDS blog A Motley Vision.
