Cattle Prods and Missionary Work

Trust me, the jet lag I was suffering from on my first day in the mission field, not even a cattle prod would have kept me awake.

Personal History Comedy or Tragedy

If it is high school, it's probably a little of both. (With plenty of drama mixed into the equation.)

This gag is featured in the September New Era.

Your October 2017 General Conference Activity Packet

Elders Van Dyke, Strong, and Ryan meet their Mission President and his wife.

General Conference is nearly upon us. To help you prepare for it, I'm proud to share your October 2017 General Conference Activity Packet. This year the packet is available in English, French (translated by the talented Sara Mayer), Portuguese (translated by the talented Dani Queiroz de Souza), and Spanish (translated by the talented Gaby Herrera).
But don't stop there. I've got lots of other aids to help entertain your little ones during the up to ten hours of General Conference weekend.

First up, consider subscribing to the Mormon Cartoonist Activity Page Newsletter.  The Mormon 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.

Next, you might want to download my collection of iOS apps. If you own an Apple product, your family will love the LDS Coloring Book, LDS Laughs, LDS Scripture Heroes, and the Book of Mormon Adventure App.

Additionally, you'll love my activity books the Puzzle Book for LDS Kids and Now That I am Baptized available to purchase online or at most LDS bookstores.

Finally, I want to brag about Mission Daze, my latest book published just a month ago. Subscribers of the Deseret News will recognize many of the strips featured in the book that chronicles the mission of Alex Van Dyke from his mission call to his homecoming. But Mission Daze is more than just a collection of the 100 plus strips featured in the Deseret News, instead the book collects nearly 500 strips that tell more of Van Dyke's story. If you have served a mission, have a missionary within your family, know a missionary, or have heard of a missionary; this book is for you! Trust me, you'll love it.

Noah's Favorite Fruit

I'm pretty sure I got this one from the back of a Laffy Taffy.

Missionary Plane Ride

If I remember correctly, I was surrounded by other missionaries on my plane ride to my mission--they were about as receptive to my message as Elder Van Dyke's seatmates.

Of Brass Plates and Dinner Plates

Sadly, Sariah's dinner plates would have been included in the treasures stolen by Laban.
