Tithing Settlement

At the end of the year, every family in our church meets with the bishop to declare their tithes.


Our family tithes when we earn money and get paid, but today the children had one last payment to make from money they earned from autographs.  They were so excited to pay their tithes to the bishop!


We packed our lunch to have a picnic while we waited, and that was a grand adventure in itself!


We had peanut butter and banana sandwiches, with bread given us by Panera and Peanut Butter given us from the storehouse and jam that Nathan made.  We had apples given from the storehouse and goldfish crackers left from the baptist treats that the Bayles family brought.  We had juice boxes left from a temple trip, and skittles also left from the baptism reception.  We will remember that tithing is a blessing!  And delicious!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
