2019 brought some big changes, the biggest being the move to our ranch in Santa Ysabel, near Julian CA. Now, instead of teaching my class, doing grandkids and hanging out with friends, I tend 3 horses (Grace Kelly, Vegas and Ranger) 2 goats (Billy Idol and Dolly Parton)  2 dogs (Frankie and Jonny) and the six cows owned b...

We've been trying to master the elusive Gospel Library App and it's kicking us around a little bit. So I wrote the GLApp group and asked our two burning questions from our last session: 

Hello Gospel Library People, 

Our Del Mar ca stake scripture class is trying to master the app! As we worked together we had a few issues:

Marie Kondo has taken the world by storm by being quintessentially Japanese. I know. I lived there and was trained by a Marie Kondo-ish Japanese companion who was horrified by nearly everything I did and said! But it was a great experience. The Japanese are the masters of minimalism; less really is more there. If you live...

Motherhood, marriage, ministering: the M's have it. And by the time you get through a week of it, you might have had it too! How can we succeed at teaching the gospel in our homes? We want to help! So we took one topic, the Nativity, and created three experiences: a home study message a mom (or dad) can give, a message fo...

This week Wendy Ulrich came to teach the class. Wendy, a psychologist, educator and frequent presenter at events such as Time Out for Women,  has just completed a book titled "Living Up to Our Privileges." From the overview she shared with us, it promises to be a very substantive treatment of this controversial issue. Rat...

The Christmas story, as related in Matthew and Luke, is familiar and beloved. And for years I've been touched by the third birth narrative that the Book of Mormon offers, as Nephi sees the birth of Christ in vision. The startling moment where Nephi grasps the whole meaning of his father's vision by seeing Mary with Jesus...

Dear SIS,

We are half way into the summer, and even though I am working on the New Testament book, I still find it hard to take that few minutes for personal scripture reading that sets the right tone for the day. So here are a few simple suggestions for adding the scriptures to the daily ritual:

1. Use the car! Make an a...

For some reason this time around the theme of Genesis seems to be forgiveness. Adam and Eve find that, as soon as they leave the garden, opposition enters the world in a variety of forms (including noxious weeds, menstrual periods and disputations about how to follow the rules) and as children arrive, the tension grows. M...

When the Lord commanded Lehi to send his sons back to Jerusalem to get the brass plates, He knew they would face danger, challenges, and peril. We might ask ourselves why, after rescuing Lehi’s family from the impending destruction of Jerusalem, the Lord asked them to go right back into danger to retrieve the records. As...

When Alma the Younger and his brethren split up and began to work to strengthen the various “stakes” in their faith, they encountered two kinds of unbelievers. First, Alma met Korihor, one of three labeled anti-Christs in the Book of Mormon. Korihor’s arguments were the classic existentialist fare: We can’t know anything...
