Free Gift

This happened to my several times on my mission. I also found that some people were suspicious of something free. My companions and I often wondered if we wouldn't have had more success placing copies of the Book of Mormon if we would have sold them for a low, low price instead of offering to give them away.

Tabernacle Choir Mustaches

Wasn't General Conference wonderful? There was so much to take from it. Although I couldn't help but wonder, what was up with all the mustaches in the Tabernacle Choir? Was this just me, or did anyone else think there was something to this?

The End is Nigh

Poor Elder Blank, he can hear the Jaws theme playing in his head now.

The Trial of Sisyphus

Sisyphus, as you likely already know, was a character in Greek mythology cursed to forever push a bolder up a hill, only to have the bolder roll back down at the last moment, forcing him to do it again and again. Kind of like setting up and taking down chairs in the cultural hall.

Hey, I was recently interviewed for the official podcast of my new publisher! If you've got 22 minutes to spare, check it out here (you can also find it on most of your favorite podcast providers, just look under Cedar Fort Publishing and Media: Behind the Scenes). It was fun.

Role of Faith

This kind of logic doesn't hold up to much scrutiny.

Sacrament Inventory

I've recently taken to doing this very thing. And, yes, I figure I won't run out of things to work on for quite some time.

Your October 2019 General Conference Activity Packet

Today's comic strip is brand new! For the first time in over two years, I've drawn a new Mission Daze strip. You're welcome.

The only way Elder Van Dyke and Elder Blank know this little bit of trivia is they've downloaded the Ward Cartoonist General Conference Activity Packet.

 General Conference is now just under two weeks away. You might want to consider downloading the Fall 2019 General Conference Activity Packet. The 16-page packet includes plenty of activities and space for notes. Thanks to a crack team of translators, the packet is also available in Portuguese (translated by the talented Dani Queiroz de Souza), French (translated by the talented Sara Mayer) and Spanish (translated by the talented Gabbi Herrera).
If you are worried that the packet won't occupy your little ones for the whole of General Conference, let me tell you about a number of other resources available on this website.

My latest book was published earlier this month. Scripture Power Activity Book includes 60 pages of puzzles inspired by the stories and principles found in the standard works. And priced at $6.99, you're getting a great bang for your buck.

If you haven't yet subscribed to my weekly newsletter, you might want to consider to do so now. This year, the Ward Cartoonist Activity Page Newsletter is providing a weekly puzzle that corresponds to the Come, Follow Me curriculum. The Ward Cartoonist Newsletter provides subscribers with a free activity page every Friday morning delivered to your inbox to download for sacrament meetings, Family Home Evenings, primary lessons, or General Conference. Did I mention that it's free? Sign up for it here.

If you have Apple products, you might be interested in any one of the fine iOS apps featuring my artwork: LDS Scripture Heroes, Book of Mormon Adventure, or LDS Coloring Book.

Finally, let me tell you about my other fine books available to purchase. Mission Daze is a collection of nearly 500 missionary comic strips tracking the mission of one Elder Van Dyke from mission call to homecoming. He's the guy featured in the comic strip at the top of this post. The Puzzle Book for LDS Kids and Now That I am Baptized include many, many more puzzles and activity pages for your little ones.
