Cookies for Christ

Well now, let me just say that I think this blogging thing is going to do wonders for the Church of Joseph Smith of Latter Day Saints. However, I was thinking just this afternoon as I was pulling some of my world famous Chocolate Chip cookies out of the oven, that I can't just sit on my laurels (actually I guess I could, since I am in Young Womens - a little Molly Humor :). I need to be more proactive in my efforts to perfect the saints. So I put a dozen cookies on a dish and took them over to the inactive family on my street. If you try this at home, remember to place scotch tape on the bottom with your name on it. That way they will remember where the dish came from and you will have 2 opportunities to do the Lord's work !

I went out of my way to let them know that our Ward loved and appreciated them, and invited them to attend church this Sunday. I can't tell you how great I felt as I was walking home. I just know they will come. When they return the dish, I plan on giving them some pamplits that talk about how families can be forever.

I encourage everyone of you to do the same. Bake some cookies and take them to the inactive couple on your street. If you don't have a great cookie recipe like mine, you can always take Jello. You can never miss with Jello. And, don't forget the scotch tape.

Please let me know how this works out.

Molly, do you ever sleep?

I'm glad someone realized there is something holy about chocolate chip cookies, but if you plan to share some Utah dishes as a cultural exchange, please don't bother. I'd rather be told in detail how scrapple is made again.

Oh you sinister porpoise. I do think there might just be some hope for you afterall. Otherwise what would be the porpoise :) A little fish humor. (I used to work for Artic Circle)

In the name of the fish,

This is also a fantastic way to get a husband, as the girls at BYU know. Girls who take homemade cookies to single returned missionaries to curry favor, a date, and hopefully a ring (!!!) are often referred to as "cookie whores," but that is just by the ugly single girls who can't find a husband before they graduate.

Molly The Mormon said...

OOOOH, Whore is such a nasty word. I can't imagine good honest LDS girls using such terms.

I didn't have to resort to bribery to land my husband. We met in the mission field doing the lord's work.

Of course we didn't date until we got home :)

Thanks for the note,

Molly the Mormon

Is someone handing out cookies? Do they have pot in them?

Rebecca said...

Oh, Molly, don't worry - it's not the good LDS girls using that word. It's the UGLY, SINGLE ones. I don't really think you can be a good LDS girl if you are single (and if you are ugly, you are single). Those poor girls. Maybe I should take them cookies, and let them know they can be plural wives in the next life. That might cheer their souls.

Rebecca,

That's a great idea.

You get a Sunbeam point!

Arizona,

I'm not speaking to you until you clean up your pot-ty mouth.

Praying for you,

Ok - So I did it, gave away cookies, but no one gave me the dishes back and I forgot where I left them and now we have to eat on paper plates. My husband says he wishes I were gay so he could get another wife who won't lose the dishes.

Molly The Mormon said...

Kazoo,

Now you know you were supposed to put scotch tape on the bottom of your plate.

How many innactive families do you have on your street that you can't remember who you gave the cookies to?

I'm glad that have stopped thinking about being Gay. Tell your husband that he is silly for wanting another wife. Joseph hasn't revealed that polygamy is OK again yet. He will simply have to wait.

Ramiumptum,

Molly the Mormon

Oh I didn't know I was supose to give cookies to people on MY street! I guess I need to learn to read better...

Just so you know - I didn't have any tape so I used bandaids...

Come on Molly, don't you know by now that there are NO UGLY GIRLS in the mormon church, just pretty ones and "special spirits"? And the special spirits are usually the ones that go on missions.

Not always, though. When I was a councelor in a small branch in Scotland there was a super-hot sister missionary. That was over 30 years ago and I still get a tingle when I think about the first time I saw her. What a sinner I am!

Don't really know how I stumbled across this but I'm pretty disgusted by the references to UGLY single girls and how you can't be a good mormon and be single. Amazing how you can speak so high and mighty and still sound like a petty stuck up high school girl. Wonder what Christ would say about your judgement??? And by the way, you can TOTALLY go wrong with jello! Ick...
