One of the greatest gifts she gave me was that she believed in me, which made it much easier to believe in myself. Everyone needs someone like that.

It was a great experience, he said. They wrapped his face with hot towels, lathered him up, and carefully shaved him with an old fashioned razor blade. His face was smoooooth.
Until about two days later, when his entire face broke out into a rash, with acne popping up all over. His young face was too tender, and was super irritated by the closeness of the shave.
It was a little disappointing that the deep, dark mystery surrounding the forbidden shave was for no other purpose than to protect our little baby faces!

You never know what you're going to get when you open up a caption contest. There were some great answers — and a couple that were a bit on the scary side! Here's a sampling of some of my favorites — I combined a couple of ideas that worked well together.
- OK, Elder — I'm convinced. We're going grocery shopping this next P-day!
- I can't believe mom wants us to eat this box full of dead fleas!
- It must be fast Sunday. Mom's hiding the food again!
- First it was fast Sunday, and now it's fast Monday too?!
- Please! I don't want to eat baby carrots for breakfast!
- That moment you realize that you forgot to go shopping but you can't go now because it's Sunday.
- This means that either the Gadiantons are back in town or my brother is back home from college!
Runner-up No. 2: What the heck — Frosted Fleas?! That's what I get for ordering my cereal off the internet!
Runner-up No. 1: Where's my CTR decoder ring?
And now, the winner — from the mind of Brian H.
For his winning entry, Brian will receive a copy of That's One Small Step for a Mom, One Giant Leap for Missionarykind.
Thank you to everyone who entered!

Our instructor had us try it last week in Elders Quorum. When he asked if anyone found any relatives, I raised my hand and said, "I have a son!" My son, who was sitting next to me, was not amused.
