    The future

    I’m betting yes on a civil war in our lifetime. Lots of difficult things will happen before the 2nd coming.
  2. One of my favorite hymns. I am sure it will stay.
  3. I hope for weekly being that I am a couple miles away, but it usually ends up about 3x per month. Last Saturday I awoke at 5:20 and the song "I Love to See The Temples" popped into my head. I was like... I guess that means I need to get up and hit the 6:00 session. It's a blessing to live close.

    Fake Noise

    You have never watched The Office -American style. One of the best comedies ever written. I actually envy you a little because of all the potential binge worthy watching you could do. My wife and I watch the series over every few years - I don't do that with other series.
  5. I recommend sitting at your table. Prepare like you are preparing a lesson for a church class. Use videos, tell stories, draw picture. Have your kids teach parts. I have had many family home evening lessons crash and burn. So far the 3 weeks have been 10 x better. Spirit is stronger. I fasted and have prayed much for success. Some kids struggle during lessons and it seems to rotate through kids but it’s been a huge blessing to our family.

    More Changes to Come in 2019

    Years ago an apostle visited my ward. I was a returned missionary and my brother was there with his soon to be wife. After the meeting we were able to say a quick hi to the apostle. The apostle said to my brother... "You are not taking her to the temple with that thing on your face are you." It wasn't a question. My brother was clean-shaven the day of his marriage. As for changes. It seems like we don't have to wait for conference anymore. Seems as though it's a steady trickle of changes these days.
  9. I served with my current bishop for 3.5 years until he called my wife as Relief Society President and I was released a year ago. My bishop is great, he gets it. He always asks the presidents their opinion on callings and has them give suggestions. Sometimes he doesn't take their advice but he always considers it. I would suggest a couple things, having served in many leadership callings over the years - Sometimes you feel inspired to call someone and the bishop says no - That's okay, he has the final inspiration. Sometimes you may fee that way because that person needed to be brought to the bishops attention, or maybe they did just need the calling for a few months as that happens too. It would be good to meet with the bishop quarterly. You may have to set it up yourself, but bishops are busy. Sometimes there are bishops who just are not very good at doing what they do, it's a process and even they have to learn. Start listening to leadingsaints podcasts which is a great source on how to lead and encourage your bishop to listen as well. Both of you will become better leaders by doing so. Your bishop may not be asking much of you because, as you mentioned, the previous RS was in array. You may need to build that trust that someone else lost. Good luck, being Relief Society President is a big deal, don't be afraid to delegate as much as possible to your counselors. Maybe your example will show the bishop how he can let go of things as well.

  11. Heck yes it stays- because it's a cool song. One of my favorite's, probably because I was named after the prophet. Also, it fulfills prophecy. Joseph's name has to be known for good and evil. This song helps fulfill the "good" part of that prophecy.
  12. The reason for all the rumors is due to the apostles themselves saying there are changes coming. They want us to watch and be prepared for it.
  13. 2 hour church Temple Marriage to just sealing Lots of temples announced Removal of stake auxiliaries Changes with missionary work Focus on in home family study Focus on temple work Smaller wards and stakes My big shocker: Halloween celebration banned.
  14. Some people probably want 2hour church for the wrong reason. These may be the same people that rejoiced that there was no more monthly reporting with home teaching, and then have failed to improve their ministering. Im good for whatever the prophet announces. One thing i do believe is the way we do things is going to change. Changing is a good thing- to me it’s a sign that we are aligning ourselves to become a more Zion people. If we go to 2hour church and have an extra hour we will be accountable to the Lord for that hour just like we are with all our time. For me i don’t have a pressing calling so 3 hours is not a big deal. When i was in a bishopric it seemed i could spend 6-8 hours at church- 1 hour less would be nice. We can debate the pros and cons all day but the great thing is we have a prophet that sees and if he is being told 2 hour church, i follow emphatically and there is nothing wrong with excitement.

    article in Mormon Light

    yup. However, besides family night and family scripture study I think it will be furthered - which like you said - we should be doing.
