Faith in every footstep

We had sleet, snow and freezing rain all within the space of a few hours a couple of days ago. It left things slick!

Know your audience

We always make double the amount that we need — be it cookies or funeral potatoes — because half of them will be gone before we're ready to deliver the goods to wherever they need to go.

The easiness of the way

I can say it here, but that better be the only place I say it!

Thank you to all who have served!

Scripture mustery

If you have teenage boys, you know exactly what this means!

We are as the Army of Helaman

OK, so the scriptures never say that Helaman's sons fought like dragons (that metaphor was used for the Lamanites), but they were pretty fierce in the heat of the battle. Just like Primary.

Celestial reasoning

There always seems to be something that gets in the way — but it's sure worth it to go!

A look back

Sometimes the best thing about camp is the memories — after you've been able to get home, cleaned up and fed!

Both sides of the table

One year my wife was in charge of Girls' Camp and I was in charge of Scout Camp. It went pretty much like this.

Reading between the lines

I don't think I'd want to see a Boy Scout fashion show!

Answering service

Laman and Lemuel really went the extra mile in harassing Nephi!

Dad's stories...

Take some time to listen to dad's old stories. Again.

Happy Father's Day!

Into every garden

It'd be a lot easier if gardening was just plug 'n' play — plant 'em and then eat 'em.

A little special something

Was it really an advancement in farming when we moved from fish guts to steer manure as fertilizer?

A handful of history

I need to get some neas and sheum to add to my garden.

Remembering Mom

Do something nice for your mom this Mother's Day weekend!

Taking aeration to a whole new level

Next we talk about what "restoration of all things" means!

Literal translation

If you wrest with the scriptures, it will be to your own condemnation.

Hold on

Maybe I've been watching the news too much lately.

Where two or three are gathered

General Conference was — once again — amazing. It amazes me how so many people can hear the same talk and from it get different messages, each meant specifically for them.

If you haven't yet, please read, watch or listen to the talks from each of the sessions. It was awesome!

Face the right way

Yes, it's General Conference today — turn your tent toward the temple. Heck, turn all your electronics that way. See you there!
