BLUE - Beats Green The Movie

Salt Lake United Women's Forum is co-sponsoring a powerful documentary about environmentalism and the "Green" movement.  Watch the movie trailer and considering attending.  This is a simple thing I can do to support some basic truths that have been twisted and lost.  I will be there.  Join me.

The message given by the President in the State of the Union address on January 20, 2015, stands in stark contrast to the declaration made in 1776 -

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."

Notably, Elder D. Todd Christofferson, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, gave an address entitled 'Free Forever, to Act for Themselves' this past October. 
"It is God’s will that we be free men and women enabled to rise to our full potential both temporally and spiritually" 
The yearning for freedom is planted deep in every human heart.  It is worth seeking after, it is worth standing up for, it is worth protecting.

Below are some links from wise men encouraging us to act for freedom.

Thomas S. Monson - Dare to Stand Alone

I encourage you to SEEK, STAND, and PROTECT the freedom  that comes from God.

Take-aways from our weekly Sisters of Liberty class on 1/14/15:

Current Events:  Education remains in the forefront in the media and in our homes.  Pamela Openshaw very succinctly describes the foundational weakness of our current system that has taken God out of the classroom and replaced it with secular humanism in her book Promises of the Constitution (see chapter 12.3).  "Most Americans believe that today's classrooms are free of religious instruction.  They are not.  They are free of Christian moral instruction, (replaced by secular humanism which) has been declared a religion by the Supreme Court."  

Guest Speaker: What a special treat to have Utah State Senator, Al Jackson, speak briefly regarding issues and bills that will be addressed during  the upcoming state legislative session.   His clarity on principle and the proper role of government is evident.  Senator Jackson reminded us that it is good to learn but each of us needs to ACT.  Stand up, lead out and make our voices heard.    Thank you, Al, for taking time out to talk with us and remind us to stand on principle, develop positive relationships and make change possible.
"Duty is ours - Results are God's"  -- John Adams
 Constitutional Studies:  Our introduction today was a short video of an address given by Ezra Taft Benson, President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and former Secretary of Agriculture at an annual Freedom Festival gathering in Provo, Utah.  The link is included here:   This is a sobering yet reassuring message.  Words that stood out to us were "I have seen" , "we ... face difficult days"  "it may also cost us blood before we are through", and "when the Lord comes the stars and stripes will be floating on the breeze".

A review of  Amendments 16-27 concluded our study of The Founders Charter of Freedom, Healing of America Series.  Next week we will begin the 3rd seminar in this series, Attacks on the Charter of Freedom. 

Under Construction

We are under construction.  The purpose of creating this blog is to share information that we are learning individually and as a group.  Since we started meeting together we have each grown and learned so much.  We are finding so many who, through their study and diligence, are sharing a wealth of valuable insights.  We are not alone.  There are so many who are standing up and moving forward.  We want to be part of that effort.
