This weekend the boys are headed out on a campout to commemorate
the Restoration of the Priesthood on May 15th, 1829.
Mr. Nielson really wants this weekend to be special for
our boys as they celebrate the importance of God's power
restored on the earth today, and their responsibilities
and duties as holders of this sacred Priesthood.
They are camping somewhere in the North Carolina mountains with
fishing poles, tinfoil meals, and motorcycles.
They also designed and constructed a covered wagon with PVC pipe,
and a camo tarp that is fitted perfectly to Mr. Nielson's truck.
As for us gals (and Angus), we have our weekend filled
and wallpaper is involved.
This special Priesthood commemoration isn't only
celebrated by the men and boys, it is just as important
to the women because we are equally blessed and
supported by the Priesthood- which is the power
to act in God's name, and how grateful I am!
And I love that my boys celebrate and honor this day together.

"We are not accustomed to speaking of women having
the authority of the priesthood in their Church callings,
but what other authority can it be?"
