One of my favorite examples is during the summer when Ashley randomly decided that she wanted a cute, modest dress and couldn't find exactly what she wanted in the stores....and decided to sew one....having never attempted sewing before. The dress turned out fabulously. It blew me away. The last time I tried sewing was when I was a Mia Maid and decided to make sewing a skirt one of my Personal Progress goals. Let's just say...I never realized how many anger issues I had until I started working on this skirt and my mom probably ended up finishing it.
Madison got a beautiful new set of scriptures recently and with them decided that she also wanted a scripture case. Instead of simply buying one, however, she bought a case, a cross-stitching pattern, and some thread. She was going to cross-stitch the temple into her scripture case! I guess that is supposed to be a very Mormon girl thing to do (apparently I missed the memo somewhere along the line). Then, much to my bewilderment, Ashley decided to join her on this quest! Meanwhile, I sat on my bed playing on my computer (probably on Facebook ha) while they figured out how to cross-stitch. I giggled to myself in great amusement when they asked for my input on cross-stitching. I tried to help (I really did) but to no avail. I'm...not very good at cross-stitching.
In conclusion, I still need to read the Holy Temple book that Madison lent me, my mom sews all my church dresses, and I got a brand new set of scriptures for Christmas with a bright pink case (that I will definitely not be cross-stitching anything into). I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints....but I should probably work on some of my "Mormon girl" skills. Haha. I'm going to start my first scrapbook soon...and I'll definitely know who to ask for help.
