We Love Pres. Monson!

I wanted to post this because despite opinions on this issue, this made me feel so sad.

This is the persecution the saints are going to receive in the last days because of our doctrine. And I LOVE Pres. Monson and I just feel heart sick about this. How would it be to become the Prophet and be dealing with this? He didn't do this just to be a jerk, but was feeling inspired by the Lord or we wouldn't have done it. Not to mention, this is picking a fight specifically with us, because we were not the only ones in this initiative. And as for giving money, a lot of the work that was done was volunteer. Anyway, any of you with personal feelings on this aside, I thought it might be nice if any of you want, our family is going to do it, to write to President Monson, tell him how much we love him and support him. This is the address to write to. If you feel inclined, I would love it if it was emailed out to do the same. It would be so great to have letters of love and support sent to him at the same time he is receiving post cards from those wanting to pick a fight.

And I also want to express my appreciation to the Ruth Youth, for their love and support of us. This link shows how wonderful they have been and I am truly grateful for that. It is terrific how we can all put our differences aside and work together to keep the sacred things sacred.

We love President Monson, too. Thankfully he has a greater insight into things and while I am sure it makes him sad, I am also sure he knew what sorts of things could/would happen.

Side note, I sent a letter and pictures to him of my toddler (Fritz) dancing around with President Monson's picture. I explained they were not set up, but instead for some reason Fritz absolutely adores President Monson (he never reacted that way to a picture of President Hinckley, but as soon as he saw President Monson's picture he was all hugs and "Mons" and "My Buddy!"). I got a letter back, really nice, from President Monson thanking me (and Fritz) for the pictures. I just hope it brought him a smile for a few minutes in among dealing with things like protestors and anti-Mormons and stuff.

That is a great idea to write President Monson a letter. I think we will do that too. I'm sure he hears our prayers, but letters would be nice too.
With my family living in California I feel so bad for what they are dealing with. It's just a glimpse of what is to come.

I think it's hilarious that your playlist is mainly Chinese, haha. Good idea about writing a letter. I'll get on it! :)
