A dying Apostle’s testimony

I, like many of you, follow quite a few Mormon blogs. Ardis over at Keepaptichinin always has fascinating historical postings. A couple of months ago she posted something about President Joseph Fielding Smith’s last testimony. There is a line in his remarks where he says: Now, my young friends, as I stand at the edge […]

Elder David A. Bednar Talks about the Ministry of an Apostle

Did you see this? Apparently someone sat down with Elder Bednar and did an interview with him. He talked about his life as an apostle, what he has learned, and more. I watched the 11-minute video last night. I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t a real “interview”. I cause that’s why the title […]

Hmmm… where are all the posts asking for predictions? 🙂 I don’t have any predictions myself. I have no idea whom the Lord will choose, but trust that it will […]

Brother Russ Ballard in the Instructor

As I’ve mentioned before, I recently borrowed some old issues of the Instructor magazine (see The Busy George Romneys – Juvenile Instructor May 1958 and April 1957 Juvenile Instructor – Draw It With Chalk… note: I erroneously called the magazine Juvenile Instructor). The July 1970 issue of the magazine had an article by some guy […]
