“Things overheard at Jesus’ wedding” Top 10 List from the Late Show with David Letterman

Our local newspaper prints the Top Ten from the Late Show with David Letterman in the paper. I don’t often read them, but did the other day. The list from Tuesday, April 22, 2014 was the “Top 10 things overheard at Jesus’ wedding“. Apparently they had been talking about this with an audience member earlier […]

184th Annual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

It’s a cold, rainy day where I live, so it’s a great day to be inside.ย Here we go… the first session out of five (six if you could the women’s meeting last weekend). I’m sitting at work with two laptops in front of me. One is the full-screen video of the session, and the other […]

Some brief thoughts on the new temple video

Last night my wife and I went to the Toronto Ontario Temple and saw the new temple video. Overall we were very impressed. Here are a few random thoughts/observations: The creation scenes are beautiful Most of the additional length is in the video presentation, so it doesn’t really feel like the session is 15 minutes […]

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ While the countdown was up on the screen for this session of conference, I […]

182nd Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

I’m at home for the afternoon session. My kids are bundled up in their blankets (as is my wife) and we will watch at least the first half hour or hour together. The kids will probably then go off and play while my wife and I watch the rest. We also have a friend from […]

The bald-headed guy

A couple of weeks ago in High Priests Group we had a lesson about making the temple a priority in our lives. We were discussing why it isn’t always a priority. One of the members tried to mention a talk he remembered and said: You know… what’s his name? The bald-headed guy… Of course he […]

The power of temple worship

A great quote by Elder John A Widstoe: Men grow mighty under the results of temple service; women grow strong under it; the community increases in power; until the devil has less influence than he ever had before. The opposition to truth is relatively smaller if the people are engaged actively in the ordinances of […]

The brouhaha over baptisms for the dead

Sometimes I think I’m pretty with it, and other times I just don’t get it. I don’t get all the commotion recently about the practice of baptisms for the dead in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I don’t understand why some outside the church are so against it, and I don’t understand […]

181st Annual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

The first session of conference had the traditional announcement of new temples. One of them is in Canada, so we were excited. We also pointed out the kids that President Monson thanked them for paying their tithing. We enjoyed our lunch during the first part, and then we let the kids go and play. We’re […]
