Five Bullet Friday — It’s Gonna Be Alright

Hi all! Here’s my weekly dose of things I’ve been enjoying or pondering.

Song I’m Listening To (on repeat): “It’s Gonna Be Alright [LIVE]” by the LDS Genesis Group Gospel Choir. This is my church family! These members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly referred to as “Mormons” or members of the “LDS” Church), sing traditional black gospel music.

You can listen to them in person every first Sunday of the month at 6:40 PM at The Genesis Group meetings held at:
6710 S 1300 East
Cottonwood Heights, UT, 84121
.
The choir will be the featured program this coming Sunday, December 6.

Book I Finished: Aberration by Danielle Simmons. A few weeks ago I wrote that I was reading this book. I finally finished!! It has a good ending and plausible set up for a continuation of the story. I can’t wait to read the sequel :-).

Famous Athlete I’m Inspired By: Bret Favre. I watched his #4 jersey get retired on Thanksgiving and had admiration for him. Favre invested a lot of time and hard work to achieve the pinnacle of his career. Watch a bootleg video of the jersey retirement ceremony here:

Article I’m Reading:New National Museum Allows African-Americans to Trace Roots” by Erika Whitehead of the Howard University News Service. Ms. Whitehead featured the work that FamilySearch International and the Afro-American Historical & Genealogical Society are doing to index the records people served by the Freedmen’s Bureau (former slaves known as “freedmen”, refugees, and those with abandoned lands). To volunteer and help complete this project, go to DiscoverFreedmen.org.

Video I’m Watching: A Savior Is Born — Christmas Video produced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As I prepare for the Christmas holiday, this video helps to get me in the right frame of mind.

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given . . . and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).

Each Christmas season we celebrate the birth of our Savior — the Son of God, who can save us from sin and sadness. Remember Him, love Him, and follow Him. Visit http://christmas.mormon.org.
