muffins and mormon pass-along cards

Hey guys!
Not too much going on over here. 
Ammon and I just got back from another date to D.I.
I found me some "new" clothes that I'm really excited about. 
Ammon brought home a dinosaur book, a comic book, and season 3 of Seinfeld. :)
We are having breakfast for dinner.
Blueberry muffins just came out of the oven. 
The house smells absolutely delicious.
I just checked the mail.
We received our October Ensign.

Is anybody else super excited about the new Mormon pass-along cards?!

"We are thrilled to introduce these new, versatile pass-along cards to help you share the gospel. A scan of the QR codes will give your friends instant access to specific topics on You can use the space at the top to write personal messages or share your profile address. We encourage you to be as creative as you wish in using these new cards."
-Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

Problem: I can't think of anything! So if you're reading this, maybe you could share some of your ideas on using these new cards. I was thinking I could maybe leave them in some of the Newspapers at UVU. I'm just too nervous to hand them to someone. And I don't know anyone closely who isn't LDS. Hmmm... I do ride the bus a lot... 
Nope. Too scared. 

This is the sad truth: I've never shared the gospel with someone who isn't a Mormon. I've never had to answer any tough questions or explain to someone why I am the way I am. 
Reasons for this may include that I grew up in Utah, that I'm way too nervous I'll say something wrong, or let's face it: I just don't socialize with non-members too often.

But I want to!

It is my dream that I will one day share the gospel with someone of another faith, or someone who doesn't believe in God at all. And maybe that's why I'm so excited about these new pass-along cards. I will put them in my wallet and hope for the best! And maybe if I pray and have courage, God will do the rest? :)

Me with my muffin and pass-along card. Please excuse my tired expression and poor-lighting. 


  1. You can do it! It can be scary, but just remember you are sharing something so special and important to you. I think when you do with with love people really feel that. Whether they want to hear more or not, people appreciate that you cared enough to share something important to you. That's been our (mainly my husband's, he is more brave :) experience here. Thanks for the reminder of those pass along cards! I need to keep some in my wallet too.

  2. Those are the cutest muffins in existence!

  3. It makes a difference when you live in Utah surrounded by a lot of Mormons. In Texas we stood out since we were the only members for miles. Easier to do handouts in the mission field. But we do have inactives on the roll and non-members in our area We just all blend in here. We have to find out who they are and bear witness to them.
