    What to expect from the 2020 April general conference

    Having a session at Adam Ondi Ahman every year could get the saints ready for the eventual day. Perhaps they will eventually build a small conference center there like the one at BYU Idaho.

    The Nephites had what we call the sealed portion during the 4th Nephi centuries.

    Here comes the attack

    I think this is why the Proclamation on the Family and The Living Christ were revealed when they were.

    New Temple Predictions

    I just did estimations based on number of Stakes in the areas compared to temples. With the Guam temple however there is a possibility that one or two stakes can run a temple. Based on the number of temples that President Nelson has announced each conference it is possible we will see over 300 by the end of the next decade. Awesome time to be alive.

    Censorship at its finest

    Seems like weak censorship when everyone can see it.

    ThirdHour makes a video, apparently.

    I remember in my college ward once one of our Sunday School teachers gave a lesson where it basically was the class watching the last hour of Return of the Jedi and him making comparisons to the priesthood and spirit. He was released the next week by the Bishop. As a Star Wars fan this sort of thing really bothers me. Star Wars is not real and this is such a bad comparison. The Gospel is not the Mono-Myth of Joseph Campbell.

    They forgot to include the Galactic Dictator Xenu and the danger of Thetans. Sigh, why, Why, WHY?

    A Response to President Nelson's Address at BYU

    “Spirit of speculation?”

    A Response to President Nelson's Address at BYU

    I wonder if this could be the subject Elder Heber C. Kimball was referring too when he made this prophecy: Especially taking into account what President Nelson said in April: Having the Holy Ghost as our constant guide and protector is the key to navigating these questions and challenges. We can't do it alone and not be lost.

    New Book of Mormon videos start hitting YouTube today

    I have to say that I kind of agree. My daughter and wife were kind of laughing at some of these things.

    Is the Patriarchal Order Dead?

    To be a Patriarch means to lead by example; filled with patience and love. I think of God and Father Lehi as two obvious examples. I have always struggled with patience, especially with my kids. I have been working on it for the last few years and I am improving. It is basically learning how to look at my children as Heavenly Father sees them. I was inspired by this talk: https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/general-conference/2017/04/walk-with-me?lang=eng "On another occasion a phone call came when I was a bishop—this time from the police. I was told that a drunk driver had crashed his car through the glass into the lobby of a bank. When the bewildered driver saw the security guard with his weapon brandished, he cried, “Don’t shoot! I’m a Mormon!” The inebriated driver was discovered to be a member of my ward, baptized only recently. As I waited to speak to him in the bishop’s office, I planned what I would say to make him feel remorseful for the way he had broken his covenants and embarrassed the Church. But as I sat looking at him, I heard a voice in my mind say, just as clearly as if someone were speaking to me, “I’m going to let you see him as I see him.” And then, for a brief moment, his whole appearance changed to me. I saw not a dazed young man but a bright, noble son of God. I suddenly felt the Lord’s love for him. That vision changed our conversation. It also changed me. I learned important lessons from these experiences walking with the Lord in doing His work. I would like to share with you three of them. The first is that God notices and will support even the newest and youngest deacon. You need never feel that you are too small or too insignificant for Him to take notice of you and the service you are giving in His name."
