Impressed ...

So I was looking for some Sunday goodness on the LDS Web site tonight and THIS was linked to from the main page.

Music videos, widgets, Adobe Flash, rolling menu at the bottom. I'm very impressed. The site is cleanly designed, fun and even though I've been out the Young Women program for almost as long as I was part of it (oy vey! I'm getting old!) it made me happy.

Check it out! You may feel ancient, but it's worth a look. I never did learn all of the scripture mastery. Maybe the new interactive game feature can remedy that! There's even a place to post and print your commitments for 2009. Why didn't me and my fellow youth, LDS and non-LDS alike, have resources like this when we were 12? Oh wait ... the iPod hadn't been invented yet and a widget sounded more like something from "Lord of the Rings" than a technological advancement. Good luck.

haha -- we filled out our three goals today on the cute slips.

I like the branding -- love -- but the video of dancing people is cheesy and the kids have already watched it twice (regional event, ward event) and they are set to watch it again at a stake event.

But that said -- I think it is so great they are doing it. If anything, leaders need all the resources they can get!!

I haven't seen the dancing people yet ... I still maintain you are probably the coolest Young Women leader EVER. I love you posts about "your girls." I'm still wondering if my adolescence would have been different with a cell phone at age 12 instead of 19, an iPod and Facebook. Stuff my brother's been doing since fifth grade wasn't even available to us till our junior year in high school! Crazy.
