Do they even know what genealogy is?

So, I saw this “Jean-e-ology” sign a couple of months ago in a popular clothing store. I immediately asked my wife if any of the regular customers even understood what this play on words was even about. I’ve since looked it up on the Internet, and it seems to be a fairly common term for […]

Elder David A. Bednar Talks about the Ministry of an Apostle

Did you see this? Apparently someone sat down with Elder Bednar and did an interview with him. He talked about his life as an apostle, what he has learned, and more. I watched the 11-minute video last night. I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t a real “interview”. I cause that’s why the title […]

180th Semiannual General Conference – Post-conference notes

I’ve said this before, and I’ll probably say it every conference… I have a hard enough time getting through 10 hours, how do the apostles and First Presidency make it through?! So, after 10 hours of General Conference have gone by, and I’ve had a few thoughts: I was surprised with the number of talks […]

180th Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

President Dieter F Uchtdorf conducted The Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang Come, Rejoice Elder Lawrence E Corbridge offered the invocation The choir sang Lead, Kindly Light Elder L Tom Perry talked about […]

180th Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

I went to Church a little early today. I had to do an interview before the main broadcast. I went with my sons who sat and watched the Music and the Spoken Word broadcast while I was in the interview. By the time I was done my wife was there with my daughter, and we […]

180th Semiannual General Conference – Priesthood Session

As indicated in the write-up for the Saturday afternoon session, I watched that one at home. I had to be at the Church by 6:15 pm (Eastern time), so I left about halfway through Elder Scott’s address and picked up my father. We both had to be at the YM sub-sational which started at 7:00 […]

180th Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

So I’m home now and my 3 kids are sitting down with my wife and I to try to watch some of the afternoon session together. I don’t imagine the kids will last very long. My wife commented that it would be pretty cool to be part of the “family choir” that is singing for […]

180th Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

Here we go… Wait, what’s up with the audio? I can hear the choir, but no voiceover, and nothing from President Eyring (who is conducting)… Phew! There is audio now. In general (and not because of the audio problem that has been resolved), I prefer the Move Networks plugin that the Church used to use […]

180th Semiannual General Conference – Pre-conference notes

Somehow, I’m at work again for General Conference. I don’t plan it this way, but it always seems to happen. Oh well, you do what you gotta do. I’ll watch the first session here, and then the  afternoon session at home with my family. I’ll go to Church tonight for our sub-sational with the YM […]
