Some Valentine's Day Loving

Since it was our first Valentine's Day as a married couple we wanted to do something really fun. Like go out of town... but Abe was feeling under the weather all week and we decided to hold off so we can take time off from work in June/July to go to Lake Powell. So we decided dinner and a movie would do. Abe said I could pick the movie... and I chose "Confessions of a Shopaholic," since I read the book I wanted to see it before people started telling me about the movie. I enjoyed the movie, time with Abe and eating indian food and drinking lasse's with him. He also gave me an Azalea tree which I love... and it's pink... so it was the perfect gift which now sits nicely on my desk at work..

Worth reading... SLC Mayor Becker on the LDS church

I love reading the editorials in the newspaper and my co-worker pointed this one out to me today in the Salt Lake Tribune. It was written by Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker who previously served as minority leader in the house before being elected as Salt Lake City Mayor. In the opinion piece he talks about his interaction with the LDS church. Go ahead and read it...

Mayor and LDS meets Public Forum Letter

in the Salt Lake Tribune...

In my 11 years as a member of the Utah Legislature I had several meetings with the Public Affairs Committee of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As a member of leadership, I participated in annual pre-session meetings. In my entire experience, I found my interactions helpful and appropriate. Church officials understood and were careful to explain their positions on a very limited number of topics, and they consistently were careful to be sensitive to the separation of church and state while expressing their opinions. Most the meetings were spent by church representatives listening to priorities we brought to the discussion. The discourse was frank and respectful. Never did LDS Church representatives step over appropriate boundaries. It is understandable that people would be suspicious of an institution as powerful in our state as the LDS Church. While I have not always been in agreement with LDS Church positions, in my experience, in secular matters the LDS Church has carefully considered the opinions and effects of their opinions on others having different perspectives. I hope that other interests in our state can exercise comparable civility in their interactions with government officials.
