a nice answer to my last, venty post...

This was posted in response to one of the threads on one of my favorite blogs. It was a thread about breastfeeding, and where in church it is and is not appropriate:



My mom is Spencer W. Kimball’s Niece and she always told me this story about when he came to her ward when she was a young breastfeeding mother.

The story she told goes something like this….She was in a meeting room or classroom discussing something with a big group and I guess she wanted to get up to breast feed her baby in the mothers lounge (which she hated) and the president said to her “You don’t need to go to the mothers lounge for any of our sakes. Motherly duties are beautiful. Stay here and care for your child.”…. my mom always talks about this.



I love Spencer W. Kimball. I was 2 when he died but he will always be one of my favorite prophets... if we're allowed to have favorites?

Hi
I stumbled across your blog on LDS BLOGS. I thought you mighe be interested in a site my wife and I just built called MormonsMadeSimple.com, which uses simple, explanatory videos to explain the Mormon faith. Feel free to feature any of these videos on your blog, or just share them with non-member friends. We're hoping these videos will be missionary tools to help members share their beliefs. Anyway, sorry to spam your comments section. I couldn't find any contact information for you on your blog.
