A Dollop of Sour Cream

I'm not much into spicy food. I have recently discovered that if a meal is just a tad too spicy for me, I can put sour cream on top and make it not just palatable, but wonderful. This blog is devoted to doing the same for life.



Engstrom Family Cerebrations: Celebrating Civic Holidays

Engstrom Family Cerebrations: Celebrating Civic Holidays

A while ago, Mrs. Engstrom posted an article about whether July 4th should be celebrated in a church. This weekend, I came across a quote from one of our founders.

John Adams, 1837 "Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the world, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day [the Fourth of July]? Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundations of the Redeemer's mission upon earth? That it laid the Cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity?"
