17 different women, 36 crazy children, 0 babies in utero
Adventures, Advice and Questions from a group of Mormon women who met in Queens, NY and have now scattered all over the place.

I have noticed a lot of general authorities and other Priesthood leaders who practice a “general-authority-speak” and are in positions of speaking to large congregations, often comment on their wife’s “sweet spirt”. Whenever this happens I cringe because if my husband ever said that about me, it would be a lie. I can’t believe that every single one of these women is sweet through and through.
Whenever I hear this phrase I wonder what would be a fitting one-word description of my spirit. My first choice of course is sexy, but I don’t think a spirit can be sexy without a body, although my mind is probably 80 percent of my sex appeal—we all know it’s not my boobs (thank you two children). [And if you don’t know that, go check out the ‘chives.]
So what is a fitting description for me and also appropriate across the pulpit? I want to know yours…when the DH says: “My wife has a such a _________ spirit,” how would you fill in the blank? (And if you just read this, you have no excuse but to respond, because it takes one, count 'em one, word).
PS Thanks Snarky for the pic. It is perfect for this post, except for the big boobs.
