Every Good Gift

At a young age, this little girl can already wrest the scriptures to excuse her bad behavior. I sense a future in politics for her!

Companionship Trust

I had to do this with pretty much every pair of pants on my mission. This despite the promise of the suit salesman that my pants were doubly reinforced.

Pioneer Vs Pilgrim

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!* Growing up I never could keep straight pilgrims and pioneers. I was regularly embarrassed when, as a little kid, I'd talk about the pioneers and the Mayflower and the pilgrims and their handcarts. It was all worth it though as it led to a joke all these many years later.

*Everyone, that is, who celebrates Thanksgiving. To any other reader, happy fourth Thursday of November!

Children and Youth Program Recognition

Watching Sunday's Face to Face where Elder Gong and others further explained the roll out to the new Children and Youth Program left everyone in my home a little excited. (You can find the details here.)

Honestly, though, I was a little disappointed that I never got the chance to progress through the program. Hence today's comic. When one of my children saw if for the first time, she said, "That sounds like something that you would say, Dad." (She's surely impressed with my command of the latest slang.)

So Much for Missionary Cooking

Poor Elder Van Dyke, his hubris led to his downfall. Like Icarus, he flew too close to the sun.

In-kind Tithing

This used to be a much bigger thing. I'm not sure how it was done 150 years ago either.
