These included: Saturday Morning General Session M Joseph Brough – Families are a care package from God Dale G Renlund […]

187th Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

I saw this every 6 months, but I love General Conference morning! I slept in until 7:30, which is pretty late for me. We got up, watched a family movie together while having a yummy French Toast Bake that my wife made. We then played a game and went for a walk. My wife and […]

I haven’t had a chance to watch the General Women’s Session of General Conference. We were driving home from Florida on that day and so we missed it. I’m sure my wife and daughter will watch it soon. Since I don’t have any of my own notes, I wanted to share a few links in […]

A good clean joke?

Recently I was in a second hand store and was browsing the books. I was flipping through The Best of the Good Clean Jokes by Bob Phillips and happened to come across one related to Mormons. It makes a joke about polygamy. It may be clean, but A Mormon acquaintance once pushed Mark Twain into […]

Can’t we all just get along

I am a Canadian living in Canada, so I am an outside observer when it comes to the US election. It is crazy how long the campaign lasts for (here it is about two months), and how mean the tone has become. I’ve recently read a BYU Speech by Hugh B Brown from 1968 called […]
