OH, man!  Summer is finally wrapping up for us!  It has been an amazing time of family and sibling bonding, and I am so grateful for that.  We're just trying to make the most of this last day of summer, but I can feel the time slipping through my fingers and I am powerless to stop it.  So forward, we will go!

Now for a quick FHE report.

Last night, we hosted a little Sidewalk CHALK WALK in our neighborhood for Family Home Evening, and besides the fact that it was like 95 degrees out, it was totally awesome and fun.

We always attended a Sidewalk Chalk Festival "back home" in Lewisburg, so we had to keep that tradition are part of our new lives here in Cranberry/Pittsburgh!

We asked neighbors to join us in writing positive messages on the sidewalk for the children to see as they returned to school on Wednesday.  We also asked all the kids to draw and make creations of their own liking.  Then at 7pm, neighbors came out and admired everyone's drawings.  It was just a lot of fun.

I was impressed when one neighbor write Proverbs 22:6 ("Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it") on their sidewalk and included actual "footsteps" for children to walk in.  I really appreciate that so many people are religious and have faith in God here in our new town.  It builds me up.  And I love that my kids get to grow up around people like that!  People who, as President Nelson would say, "Let their faith show!"

So, one more thing of note is that after President Nelson's announcement that we need to drop the usage of LDS and other nicknames, I changed the address for this blog.  

To be clear the name of my blog has always been "We Talk of Christ, We Rejoice in Christ," however when I started my blog, that site address was not available, so I ended up with "BeingLDS.blogspot.com" as my blogspot address, however I have always called my blog by it's name "We Talk of Christ, We Rejoice in Christ."  

Funny thing.  When I went online to see if there was another domain I could possibly use, sure enough "https://www.WeTalkofChrist.com" was now available.  

So, in case you were wondering, I am now directing my site to this address.  If you click on old links it will simply redirect you to this new address without a problem.  However, if you link to me and would like to change the link to the new website, that would also be cool.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm thrilled to hear this re-emphasis on using the full, sacred, revealed name of the church.  And I fully support it.
