Welcome to the Neighborhood News

But charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him.”
Moroni 7:47

I realized today that I wanted to quote someone who’s totally anonymous. Sometimes you find regular run-of-the-mill people who have a great outlook on life, and you just want to honor them.

There are these two cute twin sisters from Knoxville, TN. They run their non-profit soup kitchen, and they are the happiest, humblest people I have seen in a long time.

They were showcased on a TV show last week. The person that was the center of the episode was looking for organizations or people that she could make a donation to. Two of the people she met were Helen Ashe and Ellen Turner. One said of the other: “She’s 5 minutes older than me, but I’m 50 pounds heavier!” Laughs all around. Great sense of humor, and an incredible love for their fellow beings.

When asked about their philosophy, Helen said:

“Our Daddy taught us three truths:

1- There’s but one father, and that’s the Heavenly Father

2- There’s but one race, and that’s the human race

3- Not to take the last piece of bread from the table, because someone may come at us hungry.
Isn’t that simple and deep at the same time? I just loved their genuine zest for life.

They run The Love Kitchen. Pay them a visit and let me know what you think.

Let me share this scripture with you:

“But behold, that which is of God inviteth and enticeth to do good continually; wherefore, everything which inviteth and enticeth to do good, and to love God, and to serve him, is inspired of God.” Moroni 7:13

I think the sisters are inspired to do good, and they’ve been doing it continually since 1984.
