“You write it down in your little black book, that in the Gospel of Jesus Christ you have help, and you have it on both sides of the veil. And you must never forget that one thing. When disappointment and discouragement strike, and they will, you remember and never forget, that if your eyes could be opened you would see horses and chariots of fire as far as the eye could see, riding at reckless speed to come to your protection. They will always be there, these armies of heaven, in defense of Abraham’s seed.” Jeffrey R. Holland

“It is so important for us to prepare ourselves for the things that will happen in our lives. We must look forward with optimism and confidence. We can gain nothing by brooding over the past or the things we should have done but did not. Rather, we must decide that from this point on we will correct our mistakes, repent, and go forward with a determination to walk in obedience to the commandments, which can only make us happier, more loved and respected, and more successful in any field of endeavor.”
N. Eldon Tanner, Ensign, Feb. 1972

Can’t believe it’s been 10 years since Light the Fire Within, Olympic Winter Games, Salt Lake City 2002. I had the best time as a Volunteer in the Olympic and Paralympic Village!
The important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning but taking part. Just as in life, the aim is not to conquer but to struggle well. Pierre De Coubertin, 1937

Recipe adapted from Joy of Cooking:
For Lamb or Pork. Do not let the meat marinade for longer than 2 hours.
Crush together in a bowl:
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Grated zest of 2 lemons
Juice of 2 lemons
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
We cut the lamb into one inch cubes, put them in a zip top bag in the fridge and let them marinate. Once ready to cook, thread them onto soaked wood skewers. Grill about 8-12 minutes total.
