186th Annual General Conference – Post-conference notes

That was pretty good. I watched 9 1/2 of the 11 hours of conference (I still haven’t seen the Women’s General Session). I think my favourite talk was President Nelson’s talk from the Priesthood Session about priesthood power. I teach a lesson during our ward/branch conferences about the Oath and Covenant of the Priesthood and […]

186th Annual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

In between sessions we watched Once I Was a Beehive. We’d never seen it before, and we quite enjoyed it. My wife is going to girls camp this year to be the craft leader, so the movie got her quite excited. We’re ready to start the final session. Here we go… President Dieter F Uchtdorf […]

186th Annual General Conference – Priesthood Session

Normally we go to the sub-sational dinner before the Priesthood Session of conference, but tonight we went out to dinner at a local Chinese food place instead. It was a buffet, so I ate way more than I should have, but it was good! President Dieter F Uchtdorf conducted A choir comprised of students from Institute […]

186th Annual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

I thought I would nap between sessions, but I ended up watching the season finale of Star Wars Rebels with my kids. It was pretty awesome! The first session today was pretty good. This afternoon I guess we’ll get the sustainings and statistics, which are always interesting. We’ve had great weather this winter and spring, […]

186th Annual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

We’re gathered in our family room. My daughter and I have some maple candies we got at the sugar bush this morning. My one son is drinking some milk and the other son is giving me shifty eyes (I’m not sure why). We’re settled in and ready to go… The Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang How […]

186th Annual General Conference – Pre-conference notes

Well, here we go again! I know I haven’t been blogging regularly, but I do enjoy doing my write-ups, so I will continue it. This morning we went to a local sugar bush for breakfast and a bit of a tour. We’re home now, full with sugar, and ready to watch conference. I have no predictions […]

“The #Blessed Life Of Kaskade, EDM’s Voice Of Reason”

Buzzfeed has a great article about Ryan Raddon, AKA Kaskade. He is a world-famous DJ, and is also a devout Mormon. I’m not into that type of music, so I hadn’t heard of him before, but it was a very interested read. I’ve since looked up his name and there are lots of Mormon-related articles […]

“…Venting Is Only Making You Madder”

With all of the turmoil in the world today and how everything seems to be more urgent on social media, it got me thinking about an article I had read this summer. New York magazine had an article called “Gchat Venting Is Only Making You Madder“. It highlighted how we generally like to vent and […]

185th Annual General Conference – Post-conference notes

Well, another conference has come and gone. I think my favourite talks of the conference were Elder Andersen’s talk on faith and President Uchtdorf’s talk about making our church experience more meaningful. Probably the most touching thing about conference was seeing President Monson struggle through his talk Sunday morning. He seemed to shrink physically before […]
