Having a HEALTHY FAMILY>>
Having a Balance of Healthy Spirit,
Mind, Body, Family, Finances and Society is essential to every human being.
Take one of these balances out of you life and you'll be traveling on a
broken wheel. As an example: Healthy Family: - What happens when
mom and dad fight and the children feel insecure or unloved, especially
over a period of time? Each individual in the family suffers, and some
may become depressed or even suicidal. When family relationships are strained,
can family members work or study effectively, play together, or even feel
spiritual and pray together? Getting a good balance in all of these areas
of life will help every family member lead a positive and happy life.

Do you enjoy doing Genealogy?
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints has the world's largest collection of genealogy records. Most
are on microfilm or microfish records that are difficult to search and
An amazing new program, has been
initiated called Family Search indexing.
The microfilm and microfish records
are being converted from film to digital by thousands of volunteers.
The work is done from home on the internet. It is easy and enjoyable.
Anyone can volunteer - members of the LDS church or non-members can participate.
Last quarter there was 29,000,000
+ names indexed. There are 33,000 volunteers.
That means that the average volunteer
is indexing about 2000 names/quarter. (Each name is done twice to
improve quality and accuracy.) 100 volunteers are joining every day.
To volunteer go to: www.familysearchindexing.org

"image of God" with an eternal soul, and a value that exceeds the combined
worth of the universe."
