Keep Pushing

Poor guy.

Whole Wheat

Today's gag corresponds with this week's Come, Follow Me lesson. I truly sympathize with folks who have allergies or otherwise can't enjoy certain foods. As bad as dietary restrictions may be, I'm pretty sure they will have no impact in our standing with the Lord.

Your April 2023 General Conference Activity Packet

First, here's your Monday morning missionary comic.

Hard to believe that we are less than two weeks away from another General Conference. To get you ready, please check out the April 2023 Ward Cartoonist General Conference Activity Packet. It is 16 pages of puzzles and fun that should engage you young ones for hours. And best of all, it is free! Download a copy in English or Spanish (thanks, as always, to Gabi Herrera for translating the packet).

If free content is what you like, then you should absolutely sign up for the Ward Cartoonist Activity Page Newsletter. You'll get an activity page delivered to your inbox every Friday morning. You can find all the details here.

For those of you willing to spend a little bit, check out my collections of activity books:
Granted I'm wildly biased, but I believe these activity books come with a level of effort and care that far exceeds anything else on the market.

If you are more interested in a laugh than solving a puzzle, I'd suggest ordering a copy of Mission Daze. It includes nearly 500 comic strips tracking a missionary from mission call to homecoming. 

Finally, if you've given up trying to pry a phone out of your kids hands during Conference, consider purchasing either LDS Scripture Heroes or Book of Mormon Adventure on the Apple App Store.

Moroni's Trump

I don't profess to know much about the signs of the end days, but I can confidently say that they won't be heralded by a lively polka!*

When crafting today's gag, I tried to conjure the silliest instrument possible--there are a lot of candidates to choose from.

*As fun as that might be.

Limited Warranty

Missionary blessings cover for a lot of things, but I'm not sure they cover that.

For Those of You Who Don't Know Me

The whole "for those of you who don't know me..." sacrament meeting talk is a relatively new crutch. Why in my day, we start each youth talk with a definition from Webster's Dictionary, and we liked it! Despite it's short lifespan, I can confidently say that "for those of you who don't know me" is my least favorite rote intro in the Church.

Wrinkle-Free

This happened to every one of my wrinkle-free shirts as a missionary. Unfortunately, it happened to one of them the day of a Zone Conference. My Mission President's wife let me hear about it too. After that, the iron and I became close friends.
