184th Annual General Conference – Pre-conference notes

Well, here we are again… another General Conference. Once again I am at work for the first session, so I’ll watch it from there. Then I’ll be home for the rest of the sessions. This is the last General Conference before my oldest turns 12. My father and I are going to watch the priesthood session […]

183rd Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

After the last session, we watched some YouTube videos about Stephanie Nielson. What a story… what an example of perseverance! Afterwards my kids played the game of Life and I had a bit of a nap. We’re settled in now to watch the last session… President Henry B Eyring conducted The Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang […]

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 […]

Do you know how to receive revelation? Part 2

As I mentioned in the first part, when I was interviewed by Elder Olson and Elder Echo Hawk to be in the Stake Presidency, Elder Olson asked me if I knew how to receive revelation. That, together with the topic for May in the new youth curriculum has given me plenty to think about. “Do […]

“_____ is proof that God loves me”

My family has had a water cooler for years. We’ve gotten our water from a variety of places, and are currently getting it from a do-it-yourself brewery in town. I guess in order to make your own beer, you need reverse osmosis water. A 5 gallon jug of water is only $1. Not a bad […]

Who ya gonna call? (Holy) Ghostbusters!

Here’s another funny one… I can’t remember where I got this from (otherwise I’d link to the original), but here is a cartoon I’ve had saved for a while. My wife and I love the two Ghostbusters movies. No matter how hard they try, I don’t think Egon, Ray and Peter would be able to […]

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 […]

Sacrament Meeting Talk – Making the right choices at the right moments

I spoke on Sunday for the first time since I was released as bishop. It was a little weird, as I was used to speaking with some authority, and now I’m just another guy. However, when sharing a message about the gospel, I guess you still have the authority of the Holy Ghost. It seemed […]

Canada-wide Stake Conference

I was going through some drafts that I had, and this one stuck out. Apparently 2 years ago we had a Canada-wide Stake Conference that was broadcast from Salt Lake City. Well, here we are 2 years later, and we have one this coming Sunday. I figured that I might as well post the notes […]
