November's pick - Melanie

I'm sorry, I'm sorry... I totally forgot to do the November post. So here goes...

This month we read the biography of our beloved prophet
President Thomas S. Monson
Melanie hosted a wonderful book club, as usual. We had a pop quiz on said prophet and for those of us who may not have finished (or even started) had quite a surprise and stressed out a little like we were in 10th grade history again. But were able to learn a lot of fun facts.

We had a great discussion. There was story after story shared of people's favorite President Monson moments. He is an amazing man and truly inspired. What a beautiful tribute to the Lord's chosen.

Melanie made yummy appetizers, treats and even served a delicious hot chocolate bar. With 7 oz of perfectly heated water, 3 tablespoons of cocoa, marshmallows, and a peppermint stick, the night was complete!
Thanks Mel!!!

Next month: Tandy
Hard Times and Holy Places
by: Kristin Warner Belcher
We're excited to have a beautiful story about Christ to start off our Christmas season!
Hopefully everyone got their food assignments for the Christmas dinner at Tandy's and remember to bring a wrapped book for the book exchange!!!
Happy Christmas to all!!!

I'm a total stranger but am hosting a book discussion on Pres. Monson's biography in two days. Any chance you'd share the pop quiz? Thanks!
