That special time of year

Online donations are much more convenient than in-kind!

Jacob 5, the back story

Jacob's parable of the vineyard is a good story, but it does go on — and on!

Autumn spoilers

And that's what chores are all about!

Harvest time hazards

We cleared out and winterized our garden this week. No surprises like this, however!

There are always those people...

Nowadays everything from General Conference is posted online almost instantaneously! It's on the Church website, and memes show up on social media almost as they're spoken!

Following the prophets, to a degree

Missionaries today don't often use the same techniques that Ammon used to start a gospel conversation. That's probably a good thing!

Historical perspective

That's why our ancestors did all those things, so that we could memorize dates in school.

Back to class

Long story short: we're going with reruns here for a little while. I'll be running a few of my favorites for the next couple of weeks.

Know your audience

You could probably just repeat the same lesson five times!

Rise up

Not only do you get to teach tired teenagers every day, you get to do it before the sun comes up!

Do you ever get that feeling, when you just know you're going to get a certain calling?

And why are they not chosen?

In my experience, if you make sure the Relief Society and the Primary are happy, then the rest of the ward seems to take care of itself!

That Primary split

It takes a special kind of person to work in Primary!

Liberty for all

This is a rerun from about four year ago. Long story.

A day to remember

One year our kids reversed this. It was not a good day.

If at first you don't succeed...

Ask any scoutmaster what it's like to take a Scout who grumbles about everything on an overnighter. Can you imagine what it would be like to have those same kids grumbling about everything for years?

Memorial Day

One of the most important words in the Book of Mormon, said Pres. Spencer W. Kimball, is "remember." May we remember those who have gone before us this Memorial Day.

Saturday, May 16, 2015

Who's No. 1?

And I'm sure there are others that Kib didn't include!

Early Skype

The missionary Skype is the highlight of Mother's Day nowadays. Before that it was a phone call, or a card if the missionary remembered. I think moms like modern technology better!

Even vegetables can smell good on Fast Sunday!

Another lesson from the garden

OK, I know that brussels sprouts probably weren't a huge part of the Nephite diet, but the name has a certain ring to to it. Not to mention the taste...

Saturday, April 11, 2015

Church at home

I ran into a few technical difficulties, so I'm throwing in a rerun from a couple of years ago.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter from all of us here at Zarahemla Times!

Early warning

Nowadays it seems like you can't be ready for conference unless you have a lot of cute things made up. There are other ways to prepare.
