186th Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

I wish I was at home watching this, but I’m working today, so I’m watching this during my lunch break (and then some). I’ll be able to get home before the next session, and then my sons and I will go out with my father and my brother-in-law for tonight’s session. We’ll watch both sessions […]

186th Annual General Conference – Priesthood Session

Normally we go to the sub-sational dinner before the Priesthood Session of conference, but tonight we went out to dinner at a local Chinese food place instead. It was a buffet, so I ate way more than I should have, but it was good! President Dieter F Uchtdorf conducted A choir comprised of students from Institute […]

185th Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

The baptism was beautiful this morning. My daughter was thrilled to be baptized and confirmed, and the turnout from the ward was great. The entire service was probably only about 40 minutes long, and then we had some light refreshments until about 11:30. We’re all back at home now to watch the first Sunday session. […]

184th Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

Immediately following the first session, we had some birthday cake for our daughter. She wanted an ice cream cake, so we got one from the local Dairy Queen. We then went outside in our back yard to do some work. It was a little chilly, but when working it just felt like a beautiful Fall day. […]

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 […]

Redeemer of Israel

After going to Kirtland last year, one of my sons was obsessed with his old-style replica hymnbook. He read from it regularly, and sang many of the songs. One day he and his brother filmed the singing of Redeemer of Israel: It’s beautiful to hear your children singing the hymns of the gospel on their […]

181st Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

I helped a woman in the ward move this morning, and I got back just before noon… just in time to setup the laptop and get everything working on the TV. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir opened the conference by singing The Morning Breaks President Henry B Eyring conducted. The choir sang With Songs of Praise […]

181st Annual General Conference – Priesthood Session

After the afternoon session, while the kids were eating dinner, we watched Joseph Smith The Prophet of the Restoration. It was very well done. My kids seemed to enjoy it. We live close enough to some of the sites (Palmyra and Kirtland) that we told them we’d visit the sites this summer. I go to […]
