When her father wouldn’t allow her a dog of her own as a kid, Berg roamed her Minneapolis neighborhood rounding up homeless canines and hiding them in the family garage. Living in Dallas at 24, Berg found her perfect roommate on the street: a Border collie–Shetland sheepdog mix she named Gypsy. Over the years, she worked as a real estate agent, but she finally quit in 2006 to launch a photography business. Berg finally found Flash, a 12-year-old long-haired dachshund who was part of a Dallas rescue group.
With this success in hand, she created studios in two different shelters, with lights, reflectors, rolls of backdrop paper, and platforms for her subjects to sit on. Over the years, Berg has developed a few tricks to snap flattering pictures of the dogs: position them so that light falls on their faces, and shoot at eye level.
In the past couple of years, Berg has added two dogs to the Dallas home she shares with Flash and her husband, Tom McCaffrey, a high school teacher: a dachshund named Jasper and a Pomeranian named Maggie.

It was the worst earthquake since 1906, collapsing a section of the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge and causing nearly $3 billion worth of damage in San Francisco alone.On the day of the quake, the window that was to be hung in the celestial room of the Las Vegas Nevada Temple was in a glass factory in Santa Cruz, near the epicenter of the quake, hanging in a sling where it was scheduled to be polished and then shipped to the temple.

On July 4,1859, Anthony Sherman—one of Washington's soldiers at Valley Forge who was now 99 years old—was one of the last remaining veteran soldiers of the Revolution. Here are some incredible stories from just a few.IN THE PATH OF HURRICANES - Baton Rouge Louisiana TempleIn 2005, the Atlantic hurricane season proved to be the most active season in recorded history. It was unforgettable."TSUNAMI DEVASTATION - Apia Samoa TempleThe 2009 Samoa earthquake and tsunami caused substantial damage and loss of life in Samoa and American Samoa. Category 5 Hurricane Katrina was the costliest natural disaster in the history of the United States. A few minutes after a devastating earthquake, waves reaching a height of 46 feet pounded the Samoan coast.
So he asked his friend and journalist Wesley Bradshaw to meet him at Independence Hall—the place where the Declaration of Independence had been signed. The water raged inland wiping out villages causing at least 189 fatalities and leaving thousands of others homeless.Located at roughly 2 feet above sea level and only a half a mile from the coast, the Apia Samoa Temple was in a potentially vulnerable position to the tsunami's deadly power.
Gregory Brumfield and Sister Alicia Brumfield served as the temple's first President and Matron (2000-2005). Hurricane Katrina proved to be the most dramatic experience of their five years of service and occurred only months prior to their release. Phillip Hanks and his wife, Dawn, were serving as Temple President and Matron of the Apia Samoa Temple at the time. Whether you’ve got a sweet tooth or an urge for something new for dinner, you’ll love these tasty recipes from readers like you!
Of the experience, Sister Brumfield related the following: "The President and I knew the storm was coming so we went to the temple to lock it up and make sure everything was secure. The hurricane went around the temple on both sides and we sustained very little damage.""After being closed for a couple of days we opened the temple.
Read on to find out three things you probably didn't know about some of the greatest blessings promised to those of the covenant.

I have a friend who was once walking around Brigham Young’s old farmland in New England, kicking at something underneath his foot. One temple worker was caught in the forceful waves and washed into the top of a 30-foot tree.
We just need to move forward.' ""As the temple matron, I watched my brothers and sisters come to the temple looking like zombies.
The next day, she returned to the temple and shared a deeply personal experience with Sister Hanks, who recalls that "the day before the tsunami, she [the sister temple worker] had performed temple ordinances for 23 sisters. Everyone dreams at least once in his or her lifetime of discovering a buried or lost treasure. While she was in the tree, she felt those same 23 sisters surrounding her in the top of that tree.
This new adjustment will help men and women serving in the 230 missions impacted by mosquito-born illnesses—such as Dengue Fever, Chikungunya, and Zika—to better protect against infection. The very next day, despite having lost her home, grandson and having no place to live, this faithful sister arrived back at the temple to serve at her regularly scheduled shift. The temple was their refuge… As the matron, I would welcome them and give them a hug."Three years later, in 2008, category 4 Hurricane Gustav's devastation also had an indirect impact on the temple. Immediately following the hurricane’s aftermath, thousands of member volunteers from the southern states descended upon the temple grounds to gather, pitch tents and prepare to serve the Baton Rouge community.
Wagner - Well-dressed young men and women who learn foreign languages and travel the world—it sounds like something out of a James Bond movie, but it's actually quite common in our Church.
The adjoining stake center served as a command center for the hurricane rescue and cleanup operation for the 2,000+ service requests. And now that the dress and grooming guidelines for missionaries allow sunglasses, they fit the James Bond description more than ever before.

In fact, here are 13 other people or groups that already wear the suits and shades—don't confuse them with the missionaries! The Church holds its missionaries to high standards—both spiritually and when it comes to dress and appearance. Many members of the Church have been affected by those with a story similar to Glenn's.
