She made a cover for her scriptures. Notice the bright green of her quad. No, they are not being sold in that color now. And no, her scriptures were not falling apart. She made a removeable cover for them out of green duct tape. Very inventive. She has even gotten requests from ward members to make covers for them.
I am pretty sure nothing would keep her scriptures safer than duct tape. At least no earthly intervention anyway.
Sister Chesney, (or Kimberly as we can soon call you): Good luck in the real world. We will miss you here in VA.
