During the Month of August each year since moving to Tennessee, we have gone to BYU Education Week, where over 20,000 members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint annually gather together to be instructed by the Church's best and brightest educators. I dearly wish that every church member could have the opportunity of experiencing BYU Education Week at least one time in their life. Topics are widely diverse, covering such mundane areas such as personal finance, coping with mental illness, food preparation and storage, intensive gardening, etc. In the religious realm, one can focus on church doctrine, church history, getting involved in family history, and becoming more effective gospel teachers (Judy's interest as a Seminary teacher here in Tennessee), just to scratch the surface. My personal interest is in church history (ex., pioneer trails across the west, music sung by the early saints, what became of Emma Smith following the assassination of her husband Joseph, fifty most significant events in LDS church history, etc.).

The solo performance of Reece Oliveira caught everyone's attention. Here is the video she was in.

My best wishes to Reece and her friends. They appear to have a very bright future. Here is a link to their singing of "Glorious" by David Archuleta.
