183rd Semiannual General Conference – Post-conference notes

Well, another 6 months, another conference, another 10 hours (11 if you count The World Report). I think my favourite session was Saturday morning. President Uchtdorf’s talk inviting people to return was excellent. I personally know some people who that applies to. I hope that some how they get the message. I followed the #ldsconf […]

Do you know how to receive revelation? Part 3 (final part)

As mentioned previously, the May topic for Come, Follow Me is on Prophets and Revelation. I spent two weeks discussing the ideas in the “How do I receive personal revelation?” topic. I thought the talks by Richard G Scott and David A Bednar gave some good information. Here are some quotes: Richard G. Scott, “How […]

He spoke about a number of topics, and at one point he talked about how some of the school districts in the area will be modifying their curriculum to teach more about same-gender […]

Church magazine web sites (sub-domains, actually)

Although the Church does have a variety of separate domain names, but it seems like it tries to keep everything on the main LDS.org domain. Many of the separate domains redirect to a section of the LDS.org domain. The same is true for most of the sub-domains. For example, I recently found out that each […]
