Emily W. Jensen: Today in the Bloggernacle: Rumors and pictures

Tuesday, Feb. 2

Mormon horns:

Where did the idea that Mormons have horns come from? Edje Jeter takes

a look back at some of the earliest chronology of people erroneously

believing in "Mormon Horns." Read the fascinating

accounts including this instance of a man meeting Joseph Smith who was disappointed

that "instead of the heads and horns of the beast, and false prophet, I beheld only the appearance of a common man...." So interesting.

Ambiguous loss:

What do birth mothers feel who give their babies up for adoption?

This blogger, in a touching post found the perfect definition: "Ambiguous Loss." After all the pain and toil of pregnancy

and labor, they get but one day with their newborn and then forever

wonder and somewhat grieve for their child. And yet, in the case of

this blogger's sister, "she could not deny the whisperings of the Holy

Ghost telling her this was the best thing for the baby."

Temple pictures:

Looking for a unique gift for that special someone this Valentine's Day? I stumbled upon this blog offering beautiful

"LDS Temple Pictures" for sale. The tone is subdued, bringing out the detail in the buildings. Absolutely beautiful.
