LDS Printables

My wife loves to have little sayings/phrases printed up and put around the house. I recently came across the Mormon Mommy Blogs web site. They have a tag called “free lds printables” that has all sorts of neat things to print. There are some phrases from General Conference, things for visiting teaching, and more. As […]

“Have I Done Any Good?” Hymn 223

The annual HP Quorum meeting of our stake is this coming Sunday. For some reason, our ward was asked to form a choir to sing a hymn. Now, if there was anything that would make me question the inspiration of our stake leaders, this has got to be it! 🙂  We have about 20 HP […]

The truest thing said at the most recent General Conference

As I commented before, I quite enjoyed General Conference. I felt the Spirit often as I listened to the speakers. There was lots of eternal truths spoken during the conference, but one of the “truest” things said was just an unscripted throw-away line. Brother Adrián Ochoa spoke during the Priesthood Session. The talk was called […]

Moroni: A Prophet’s Resume

Was reading in this book entitled “Scriptures for the Modern World” put out by BYU studies and I came across this interesting chapter that examined the prophet Moroni and gave a hypothetical resume for him. I hope you all get a kick out of it like I did. Some interesting stuff for sure. -S Number: 9-21-22-23 Refile:     X__    Reason: […]

“Satan stirreth them up continually to anger one with another”

As I’ve posted before, since being released as a bishop, I have been a Stake Institute Teacher. During this past school year, we studied the Book of Mormon. We finished the course last week, and I have to admit that in all my years in the Church, it was the best time I’ve had reading […]

Why do we need prophets?

That was the title of the first article in the March 2012 Ensign. The first article is the one we are to use when home teaching. I reviewed the article before going out a couple of weeks ago, and it definitely got me thinking. I understand the theory of why we need prophets… they are […]

A couple of comments from Fast & Testimony Meeting recently

Since General Conference as at the beginning of April, the monthly Fast Sunday was on March 25. As is usually the case, there were some testimonies I found to be very touching, and others not so much. That isn’t meant to criticize anyone, it’s just the truth. I’m sure there were people who didn’t appreciate […]

182nd Annual General Conference – Post-conference notes

A few random thoughts as the conference comes to an end: I say this after each conference, and I think I will say it forever… I have a hard enough time staying awake for 10 hours, how do these men in their 70s and 80s?!?! General Conference was fantastic. I always enjoy it, but there […]

182nd Annual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

Well, here we are at the last session. I didn’t go into the conference with any particular question in mind, but wow, I have felt the Spirit through so many talks, and especially during the music in the session this morning. It is going to be tough to top Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing! […]

182nd Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

The Sunday morning of General Conference is the best! I’m in the Eastern time zone, so General Conference starts at noon. We got up late, had a nice breakfast, and then relaxed for the rest of the morning. Nice! The family is gathered together now, and we’ll watch the session together. The other sessions we […]
