Ward Jenga

Having been a part of one or two massive ward calling shuffles, I can attest that the jenga analogy is pretty much spot on. All it takes is one misstep to send the whole thing tumbling to the ground.

By now, I hope you are all aware of the exciting news featured in the post below. Mission Daze, a collection of nearly 500 comic strips featured here and formerly featured at the Deseret News is now available to purchase. This is a passion project of mine that has been twenty years in the making. Trust me, it's worth the $9.95 retail price.

Introducing Mission Daze the Book!

More MTC high-jinx.

But enough about that, today I am excited to announce the publication of Mission Daze, the ultimate collection of nearly 500 strips charting Elder Van Dyke's entire mission from mission call to homecoming!

Since I first created the character of Elder Van Dyke in the weeks leading up to my own mission, I have dreamed of seeing a collection of his adventures in print. That day has finally come. And now it is available for the low price of $9.95 plus tax and shipping.

Mission Daze would make a great gift for any missionary, returned missionary, person who has so much as heard of LDS missionaries, or person who has not heard of the missionaries in your life.

I've got a large inventory of these books and they are priced to sell, so please follow this link and buy a copy or two (or three) today.

Sleeping Beauty's Early Morning Seminary

With school right around the corner, I thought it might be a good idea to spotlight one extremely unqualified candidate for early morning seminary. Sleeping Beauty had better hope they have release time in her neck of the woods.

Girlfriends and Care Packages

It's kind of ironic that as a missionary, I received lots and lots of care packages during the eight weeks I was in the MTC where I never had to worry about lack of food; but when I went to the mission field and had to pretty much fend for myself food-wise, the care packages pretty much dried up. Still, the care packages were good while they lasted.

Samuel's Facebook Wall

Samuel the Lamanite very well might be the scripture character I've featured most often on this blog.* You wouldn't think the story of a man climbing on a wall, delivering a message, being shot at with arrows, and then running away would be so rife with possibilities for a cartoonist. And yet here we are.

*Noah's got to be in the running too.

The MTC Choir

Ah, the MTC Choir: the sure way to guarantee a good seat at any devotional. And if you're lucky, you might just get a ticket to General Conference out of it.

I never participated in the MTC Choir during my eight week stay. Pity, President Hinckley spoke to us.

Sweet Hour of Prayer

An hour of prayer does seem a bit extreme, doesn't it? I'd loose feeling in my legs after twenty minutes or so.
