COVID Beard

It sounds like many of us will be returning to our chapels in the near future. It might be time to loose the COVID beard. (Although I doubt this is much of an issue for most bishops who probably have been plenty busy even without regular Sunday worship.)

The Dog Gone Missionary Blues

Hopefully, you are taking time during this unique experience to develop new talents. Hopefully, those talents don't involve making fun of those around you.

Alma's Conversion

Come, Follow Me has been a great resource for my family during COVID-19. We've been holding weekly lessons since the program began last year, but they've taken on additional importance while we worship from home. Today's comic corresponds to this week's lesson.*

I'm sure that the cardiovascular workout that was carrying Alma to the household of his father later played a role in Ammon's feats of strength when defending Lamoni's sheep.

(Incidentally, if you want an activity page that corresponds to each and every lesson delivered to your inbox every Friday morning, you should subscribe to the Come, Follow Me Weekly Activity Page Newsletter. The puzzles will entertain little ones as you teach their lessons.)

*You won't get this kind of scriptural insight from Don't Miss This.

Guitar

What a strange time to be a missionary. Those that are still serving are spending most of their time in their apartments. I hope they are making the most of that time--maybe even learning a new instrument.

COVID Honey-Do

This is the kind of joke I make when I see my neighbors in the yard. I then follow up with "working hard, or hardly working?" I'm a lot of fun at parties.

Dinner Appointment Consequences

Some of the best, most practical advice I received for my mission regarded dinner appointments. I was told to make sure to line my pockets with sandwich baggies prior to every visit were a meal was being served. That way I could hid away anything served to me that I wouldn't be able to eat to avoid offending my host.

If that doesn't work, there is always your companion's backpack.

COVID Mother's Day

I'm pretty sure that there is no other sacrament meeting in all the year more fraught with danger than the one that falls on Mother's Day. I doubt anyone compares to the angel mothers described in so many talks.
