Ask the one who knows

I overheard someone say that they check with the visiting teachers before they schedule their home teaching visits. That way they know what's going on in the family — because the visiting teachers always know!

I'm not sure — is that a good idea or a bad idea?

Too early

What's the best time to do family scripture study? We used to have our family scripture study early in the morning — one of our kids had EARLY early morning seminary. I'm pretty sure there was a lot of dreaming going on. I like it better now that we do it to close out the day.

Mindful of him

Who hasn't imagined being out in space and being in control of the cosmos? Calvin (of Calvin and Hobbes fame) did it all the time!

It doesn't take long of staring into the sky, however, before you feel small and insignificant. Yet with all that, we're still significant to God.

To fast, or not to fast — that is the question

A favorite joke at our house is to say, "Remember — tomorrow is fast Sunday!" No matter what day it is, someone always falls for it.

Service opportunities

The greatest teachers come from your own family. Sometimes that can be a little bit irritating!

The times, they are a-changin'

Some of the people in our family were really excited to start church meetings on the later schedule tomorrow — until they realized that it meant an extra two hours of fasting!
