186th Semiannual General Conference – Post-conference notes

It was a lovely conference and I was glad to be able to participate in it. The things that have been on my mind haven’t been solved, but I have definitely heard some things that will alter how I think about those things. As I watched President Monson come in before the last session, it […]

186th Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

I say this each time we have General Conference, but I love the Sunday morning of General Conference. The session doesn’t start until noon, which gives us lots of time to relax. I got woken up at 6:30 by a call from work and was unable to get back to sleep, so that was unfortunate. […]

186th Semiannual General Conference – Pre-conference notes

I’m sitting here at work waiting for the first session. I haven’t watched the General Women’s Session myself, but my wife thought it was excellent. Her and my daughter went to watch it with my mother, and my daughter fell asleep almost instantly. I guess she didn’t find it too interesting 🙂 I would assume […]

“Mormon mommies have the best blogs”

I’m sure many of you have seen this by now, but recently the Toronto Star had an article about how Mormon “mommy blogs” are among the most popular of that category of blogs. The general thinking is that family is important to us, and Mormon moms can be quite crafty. Lots of non-Mormon women apparently […]

Tom Hanks’ brief exposure to Mormons

!! About a month ago Tom Hanks was on Fresh Air. Terry Gross mentioned that Mr. Hanks had been around a few different religions when he was younger and he went on to explain each of them. One of them was The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (although only the term Mormon was used). […]
