Peer pressure… are we for it or against it?

When I was younger, my Dad used to ask that question all the time… are we for it or against it? It was almost always a joke. I’d talk to him about something, and he’d respond with that. I’d ask about staying out late, and he’d ask if we were for it or against it. […]

SantaBiblia.LDS.org sub-domain

Along with the announcement of the new Spanish version of the Bible, there is a new sub-domain. Visiting SantaBiblia.LDS.org takes you to a very nice section of the LDS.org web site that has a preview and explanations of the new features. I’ve added this to the Official web sites of The Church of Jesus Christ […]

173rd anniversary of dedication of Kirtland Temple

I am located near the Ontario/New York border, and am 2 hours away from Palmyra and 4 hours away from Kirtland. Since we are so close, I’ve been to both places many times. I love visiting them. The Church does an incredible job in restoring the sites, and making them quality destinations. I’ve always been […]

Religulous

Have you seen the Bill Maher “documentary” Religulous? I’m generally not a fan of him, but I still went ahead and watched the movie a couple of weeks ago. I’m not really sure what to say about it. I thought there were many thought-provoking things in the movie, but they were all clouded by Bill […]

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

This isn’t really Church related, but I couldn’t resist sharing it. My 4-year-old son is in Jr Kindergarten and there is currently a female student teacher working with his regular teacher. One of the YSA at Church is going to the local university to become a teacher, and we tease my 6-year-old son that she […]

2009 Ward Conference

This past Sunday was our annual Ward Conference. The stake presidency had decided that the theme of the conferences this year would be from Mosiah 18:21. I think the day went very well. The Primary children sang a couple of songs as prelude music, and did a great job. For the meeting, I was the […]

Gospel Art sub-domain at LDS.org

To go along with my post from Friday about the new Gospel Art Book, apparently the Church has had a sub-domain for a while where you can browse the available image libraries. GospelArt.LDS.org redirects you to a part of the Gospel Library. You can view photographs of scriptural sites, Church History sites, and temples, as […]

New Gospel Art Book

Quite a few years ago my wife purchased the Gospel Art Picture kit. It was around $30, and seemed like a great resource to have around the house. Now, the Church has released a nice new resource called the Gospel Art Book. I’m sure this will end up replacing the Gospel Art Picture Kit in […]

Niagara Shorthills Christian Ministries

Last weekend my family went to the sugar bush. We’ve done this every year for a few years now, and it is definitely something we look forward to each spring (even though it isn’t technically spring yet). This year we went to AgapĂ© Valley Sugar Bush which is run by the Niagara Shorthills Christian Ministries. […]

My co-worker’s response to Big Love

I commented before that I had some co-workers who watch Big Love and I was curious to see if they would ask me about it. Well, I just had a nice conversation with one woman. We’ve talked about religion before. There have been a few members who have worked with her in the past, and […]
