A great quote…

I’m not really into motivational speaking, but I’ve recently come across Jim Fannin, and like his style. Each week I download a podcast he does called The Success Zone through WebTalkRadio.net. A week or so ago the show (Week 1016 posted on April 11, 2010)  featured George Dans, the “Worlds Greatest Closer”, and they were […]

“Not necessarily in that order”

This is an advertisement for a current movie that I saw at the mall the other day. I haven’t seen the movie, but I’m appalled by the little slogan. I know it is trying to be a nice little romantic movie, but the advertising really bothers me. Not necessarily in that order?? Yes, definitely in […]

The temple recommend of a prophet, seer and revelator

I mentioned before that back in March, Elder M Russell Ballard came to do some training. He was physically at the stake centre beside the Toronto Ontario Temple, but the training was for all of Eastern Canada. Leading up to the meeting, we were told that there would be a special temple session that Elder […]

180th Annual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon Session

Well, another General Conference has come to a close. I know I comment on this every time, but it’s hard for me to get through 10 hours worth of meetings over two days. I don’t know how the General Authorities manage to do get through it in the Conference Center without falling asleep. We watched […]

180th Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning Session

I know that in areas where the Church has a lot of members, General Conference is shown on TV, but where I am for years we’ve only been able to get GC at Church. Many years ago it was only at the Stake Centre, but now we can get it at our own Ward Meetinghouse. […]

180th Annual General Conference – Priesthood Session

Before the Priesthood Session, the Young Men and their fathers met at the Church for our semi-annual “sub-sational” dinner. We had cold/deli meat and/or meatball subs along with pop and chips. As always, we had a great time. We had a little less than 50 people attend the session. Also, as is a tradition in my […]

180th Annual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon Session

I made it home from work to watch this session at home (4 PM start where I am). It was much easier to pay attention at work. Saturdays are always slow, so I could just watch the session. However, at home, there were 3 small children running around, talking, and being generally distracting. It’s hard […]

180th Annual General Conference – Saturday Morning Session

Another  General Conference is here. Time sure does fly by. Somehow or other it has worked out that I’m working again today, so I watched this session at work. I will be able to get home before the afternoon session starts. I have no idea what the messages will be. The economy is slowly improving, […]
