183rd Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

So here we sit in our family room getting ready for this session. As we usually do, we will have our kids watch the first half hour of every session, and then President Monson on Sunday morning. I’ve been reading some of the blog postings online about how people feel about General Conference. I find […]

183rd Annual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

After the morning session of General Conference I watched The World Report (I like their new logo and theme). I then had a nap for about an hour. I awoke to some of the Bible videos being played. I haven`t seen them before, and they looked pretty good. Well, here we go with the final session… President […]

183rd Annual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

As mentioned in my Pre-conference notes, I had to watch this session at work. I got called out of my office at about 11:45, and didn’t get back to my desk until almost 12:30. I was surprised to note how anxious I was to get to my computer and watch conference. I felt like I […]

182nd Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

Well, here we are ready for the last session. In between these Sunday sessions, I lay down with the kids to watch Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, but I fell asleep almost right away. It was a nice nap 🙂 While the countdown was up on the screen for this session of conference, I […]

182nd Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

I’m at home for the afternoon session. My kids are bundled up in their blankets (as is my wife) and we will watch at least the first half hour or hour together. The kids will probably then go off and play while my wife and I watch the rest. We also have a friend from […]

The urgency of the work

I don’t have any cool quotes to share with this, but here are a few thoughts… During my time in leadership positions in the Church, I have found that some people seem to take their time. This may seem like an appropriate thing. We need to ponder/study things out in our hearts and minds and […]

A 48-year long experiment of faith?

I taught the Gospel Doctrine Sunday School class this past week and we were covering Alma 32–35 (lesson 28). We spent a majority of the time discussing faith and the experiment we are to do. One thing that has always frustrated me is that people are willing to “experiment” with all sorts of things… drugs, […]

The Lord’s Baseball Game

There are a lot of “faith-promoting” stories, poems, and analogies out there that just don’t do anything for me. However, occasionally I come across something that is quite excellent, or something that I just generally think is “cute”. This is one that I thought was cute (I’m a baseball fan, so I guess I was […]

What’s wrong with Elder Hales?

If you saw General Conference, you definitely noticed that Elder Robert D Hales looked significantly different. He looked “puffy”, spoke from a chair, and had oxygen tubes in his nose. He didn’t say what was wrong with him. Elder Ballard and President Monson both referred to how it was nice to see him, but no […]

Does God really care about the little things?

The title of this post certainly is not meant to be blasphemous. It’s a serious question I have. Of course I know the scriptures about how God knows all and counts/gathers his people. But what about the daily things. On second thought, maybe my question is more about the wording and purpose of our prayers. […]
