A good clean joke?

Recently I was in a second hand store and was browsing the books. I was flipping through The Best of the Good Clean Jokes by Bob Phillips and happened to come across one related to Mormons. It makes a joke about polygamy. It may be clean, but A Mormon acquaintance once pushed Mark Twain into […]

“Mormon mommies have the best blogs”

I’m sure many of you have seen this by now, but recently the Toronto Star had an article about how Mormon “mommy blogs” are among the most popular of that category of blogs. The general thinking is that family is important to us, and Mormon moms can be quite crafty. Lots of non-Mormon women apparently […]

“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 […]

“Confessions of a Mormon housewife”

This was all over the news a week or two ago, but in case any of you missed it… CNN has a show called This is Life with Lisa Ling. Recently there was an episode where a Mormon mother spoke about her struggle with prescription drug abuse.

Why Don’t Mormons Recite the Lord’s Prayer?

This isn’t something I’ve spent much time thinking about, but Religion News Service has an interesting posting about why Mormons don’t use the Lord’s Prayer. I remember reciting the Lord’s Prayer in elementary school (before it was decided that you couldn’t do that anymore). As a young kid, I didn’t think at all about what […]

183rd Semiannual General Conference – Pre-conference notes

Life has gotten in the way of my blogging over the last month and a half, but I’m definitely going to get some postings up this weekend about General Conference. It seems that most times I’m at work for one of the sessions, but this weekend I’m off, so I’m going to watch all conference […]

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 […]

Most charitable states in America

There was recently a report about the most charitable states in America. Not too surprisingly Utah was number 1. Utah, home to the nation’s biggest Mormon population, is also the most charitable state, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy’s most recent report that looks at giving as a percentage of discretionary income — your income […]

183rd Annual General Conference – Pre-conference notes

Here we are at another April, and General Conference is here. I’m not sure how this happened again, but I’m working today, so I’ll have to watch the first session while at work. I think I’ve worked 5 out of the last 6 conferences (or something like that). Otherwise, the plan is the same as […]

Mormon Church buys ads in Book of Mormon programme

I’m sure this has been done in many cities where the “Book of Mormon” musical is being presented, but this one is very close to home (I live about an hour away from Toronto). From the Toronto Star: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints hopes patrons who see the runaway hit stage musical […]
