How Salt Lake City won over Goldman Sachs

The London Telegraph has a great article about how Utah has become a friendly place for business: Although salaries are relatively low in Salt Lake, the Mormon population, which accounts for about half of all residents, tend to be highly educated, hard-working and loyal. More than half are fluent in a second language, thanks in […]

LDS youth excited, ‘anxiously engaged’ in new church curriculum

First off, let me say that I really don’t mean for this post to be negative. I think the new youth curriculum is a step in the right direction. However, we are still teaching youth, so there are always going to be challenges… As I’m sure everyone knows by now,  in January of this year […]

183rd Annual General Conference – Priesthood Session

My father and I went to the Church for about 6:45 pm so we could setup for the traditional sub-sational. We had about 22 people there and had lots of subs, chips, and pop. It was nice. We watched the broadcast at the church and then my father and I still went out for another […]

The words: “beer” and “church.” And according to the study by Floatingsheep.org, Americans tweet more […]

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 […]

“The solution of the problems that vex his life [will come]”

A couple of days ago I quoted from Elder John A Widstoe about the power of temple worship and yesterday about the importance of sealings. Here is another good one (the last one from this talk): I believe the busy person on the farm, in the shop, in the office, or in the household, who […]
