The Move Part II: Why being a Mormon is fabulous when you move!



Answer: Immediate and overwhelming help in aspects of unloading the big truck (Elder's Quorum, that's what they are for!), immediate friends (Yay for the RS!), and an entire community of people to help you decide on doctors, dentists, schools, teachers, preschools, activities, classes, grocery stores, play dates, etc. etc. and so forth and the list goes ever on...

Of course, as my DH said, one could PRETEND to be a Mormon, get those things, and then never go to Church. Of course, that would be RUDE and quite the LIE, but bet your bottom dollar, those Mormons would still help you anyways... :)

Thank you to my new ward! Thank you for letting my wierd personality into your lives --and thank you, Janelle, for making it so easy to move right in... Thank you for book group, scripture study, hanging out --and to all my new friends, you are awesome!

P.S. Go Here for more fun LDS logos like the one above...

I was right on! That network is second-to-none. I was amazed when we moved into our latest ward how many folks I had never met rose up to help.

Can't remember if I told you this originally but we were in the Bay Area a few months ago. I told my hubby it is THE ONE AREA of California where I'd love to live. I'm assuming you're in the burbs, though!

It was fun to meet you at book group! I'm glad the move went well and you are feeling a little bit settled. You chose a great area to move to. See you next month!

Amber-
I'm not sure...? East Bay is the burbs, right? Yeah, now I'm feeling a little too small town...("What are considered "the suburbs", mom?") :) ;)

denae-
It was great to meet you, too! I think it's awesome you still come to book group...isn't the drive kind of far?
