Communicating in the Lord’s way

On Saturday I was talking with my wife about communication. I suggested that the next time she was assigned to speak in Sacrament Meeting, she should talk about communication. Then the next day someone actually did speak on that in Sacrament Meeting. The person used the talk Christlike Communications by Elder L. Lionel Kendrick as […]

My funny kids

On Sunday we had our Ward Conference, so the Stake Presidency, along with many other stake leaders, were there. My oldest son (10-years-old) asked me after Church if I knew the Stake President. I said yes, and he said the next time I am bishop I need to ask him for his autograph. I asked why, […]

Elder Holland speaks at CES Devotional

Did you watch the devotional on Sunday night? I know it was for college-aged adults, but since it available on the Church web site, anyone can watch. I figured since I am a Stake Institute Teacher, it’d be good for me to know what the leaders are saying to the YSA. It was fantastic! There […]

The fun of scripture reading

Every morning at about 7 am, we sit down as a family and read the scriptures and then pray together. We don’t read a lot (I have a 4, 8, and 10-year-old), but we think it is important to have that habit. We usually finish without any problems. Sometimes it is hard to get the […]

Marking my scriptures

Entitled to Revelation had a posting earlier this week about colour-coding your scriptures. That has prompted me to share how I’ve marked my scriptures in the past. I attended Seminary when I was in high school. I had a set of scriptures that I used. They were the less expensive kind, so the quality of […]

Brick of Mormon Stories — LEGO-Illustrated Book of Mormon Stories

It is hard to keep small children interested in reading the scriptures. You can only read the scripture story books so many times. A few years ago I was looking around, and found Brick of Mormon Stories. It is a book that has a short story about many of the events in the Book of […]

Count your blessings

We recently had a family home evening lesson about what we were grateful for. Here is a list of things that were mentioned by the 5 members of my family. You can probably guess which ones were from adults and which ones were from kids, but there are definitely some that could be either (I’ll […]

180th Annual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon Session

I made it home from work to watch this session at home (4 PM start where I am). It was much easier to pay attention at work. Saturdays are always slow, so I could just watch the session. However, at home, there were 3 small children running around, talking, and being generally distracting. It’s hard […]

The Last Supper!

Last night my wife did the Family Home Evening lesson. She called it “Scriptures In A Bag” (I’m not sure whether she made this up or found it online). She had several small paper bags on the floor, and each of them had an object or two in it. By seeing the objects in the […]

Our motivation for doing things

I don’t have anything deep to say about this, but it’s something I’ve thought about before and figured I’d put up something quick about it. I’m certainly not the only one who has thought of this, but there seems to be a progression of why we do things. Sometimes we do things because we have […]
