My funny kids

On Sunday we had our Ward Conference, so the Stake Presidency, along with many other stake leaders, were there. My oldest son (10-years-old) asked me after Church if I knew the Stake President. I said yes, and he said the next time I am bishop I need to ask him for his autograph. I asked why, […]

Old Testament Institute Lesson – Week 1 (Introduction, Genesis 1-2)

As I’ve mentioned before, my current calling is to be a Stake Institute Teacher. It is a very rewarding calling. I love meeting with the YSA and I love teaching, so it seems like a perfect calling.

The place of religion in today’s world

I have an original Samsung Galaxy Tab (7″) that I read most of my news on. One of the best news apps is Huffington Post. They certainly do have a bias about some things, but when it comes to quantity of news articles, the app really can’t be beat. The app is also nice because […]
