Also, a thorough and complimentary review of Women at Church by S. Hales Swift of the FairMormon blog.
What I'm Listening To:
We drove to California last weekend. I took the opportunity to introduce my girls to a few favorites, while I had them captive. Mozart's Marriage of Figaro got us through Utah, while Nevada brought an introduction to The Beatles' ouvre. (We got to Ringo Starr's "What Goes On" on Rubber Soul and my daughter said, "This doesn't sound like it belongs with the other songs. Who wrote this one?" Smart girl.) I have Miles Davis' Kind of Blue and the Jacquiline Du Pre favorite cello concertos lined up for the way home... There was a lot of "Everything is Awesome!" sprinkled in there too, which was fine with me since Chris Pratt is my celebrity crush.
