Official Church YouTube channels

Recently, the LDS Media Talk web site mentioned that the Church currently has 3 official YouTube channels. I only knew about two of them. Mormon Messages An official channel from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints featuring videos from the New Era, a magazine for Mormon teens. LDS Public Affairs Videos from The […]

Put faces to the numbers

I may have mentioned before that I go for a long walk each day during my lunch hour. I have a few podcasts I listen to during the week as I walk (Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!, Prime Time Sports, 60 Minutes, and occasionally some others). A couple of weeks ago there was a segment […]

Baptisms for the Dead

I know there has been some discussion on various Mormon blogs recently about baptisms for the dead, and how other church’s perceive the practice. I’m not interested in debating that right now, but I figured I’d just share a little about our most recent trip. My ward is about 120km away from the Toronto Ontario […]

The cost of tracing your family tree…

Here is a cute Wizard of Id cartoon/comic from Friday, February 20, 2009 about the cost of tracing your family tree: Interestingly enough, on Saturday, February 21, 2009 there was a similar theme for The Other Coast:

New CDOL (Church Directory of Organizations and Leaders) web site

I already had a link on the Official web sites of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints page for the Church Directory of Organizations and Leaders web site. At one point, the Church published a thick book containing the contact information for every unit and leader in the Church. I’m not sure how […]

“Red Hat board member trades one mission for another”

CNET News has a nice article about a board member from Red Hat that is leaving the company to serve as a mission president in Japan: Steve Albrecht, a longstanding Red Hat board member, has resigned from Red Hat’s board effective June 30, 2009. The reason? Albrecht, originally tapped six years ago by Red Hat […]

Attending Church away from “home”

I haven’t posted for a week and a half. My family went on a vacation down to Orlando. My in-laws rented a house there for a month, and we visited for 8 days. It was great. The weather was gorgeous (blue sky and 27°C/80°F every day). We were there for one Sunday, and went to […]

Church “Disabilities Resources” web site (sub-domain)

I first heard about this on the LDS Tech web site in a posting called Disability Resources Web Site… Apparently the Church has a sub-domain of the main LDS.org site that focuses on disabilities. It has information about a variety of disabilities, and focuses on how to help people with disabilities and their families. It […]

Brother Russ Ballard in the Instructor

As I’ve mentioned before, I recently borrowed some old issues of the Instructor magazine (see The Busy George Romneys – Juvenile Instructor May 1958 and April 1957 Juvenile Instructor – Draw It With Chalk… note: I erroneously called the magazine Juvenile Instructor). The July 1970 issue of the magazine had an article by some guy […]

Finding Mormon-themed desktop wallpaper

This isn’t exactly a Mormon-related post, but it’s a good tip that might help you as you search for desktop wallpaper, clipart, icons, and more. The example I use is specifically Church-related. I always tease my wife if she’s typing something up. She spends 5 minutes doing the typing and an hour on Google Images […]
