A Conference Talk.

During LDS church General Conference yesterday, one of the men who spoke said something I really liked. As a kid, he came home from from a football game; his team lost and he was upset. He told his mom, looking for sympathy, and she told him, “Come what may, and love it.” Over the years he’s come to understand that statement. It doesn’t mean...

Reminder…Conference is Coming!

Hello, all my fellow LDS-ers.  Just a reminder that General Conference is coming up in 2 weeks! We will be enjoying Conference from the comfort of our home on the BYU channel on tv instead of online like years past. Yay! I really do love conference…it’s such a fantastic spiritual boost. Even our Gab (she’s 10) likes taking notes of the talks now! And...

Mormons and Our Horns Story

Those that are LDS know this story, or at least the person involved. For those who do not, J. Golden Kimball was one of the leaders in his time. He was known as the “Swearing Apostle” because he was quite colorful with his language. “Uncle Golden” stories have become a type of folklore for members of the LDS Church. One of the best known...
