I am keeping busy this week with the compassionate service and planning for our big Sunday throwdown. I am making a photo mosaic for use in our reading program. I’m also babysitting for a last minute addition to the craziness of this week tomorrow. I only got about 5 or 6 things ironed today because Lynlee came over and got me to worrying about this thing Sunday. Plus my VTer came over.

I think that the elliptical alone isn’t enough, and attempting…

A dialogue between Joseph Smith and the Devil

This made me both think (that Pratt thinks, as do I, a major — I say overlooked — difference between our church and others is the idea of direct communication with God) and laugh (when Joseph has a “spruce” beer with the devil). from http://mldb.byu.edu/PPPRATDI.HTM A Dialogue between Joseph Smith and the Devil Parley P. Pratt This dialogue was published in the New York Herald on January 1, 1844. Parley P. Pratt wrote: “Visiting North Bridge, a short distance from Boston, and having a day’s leisure, I wrote a dialogue entitled ‘Joe Smith and the Devil,’ which was afterwards published in the New York Herald, and in various papers in America and Europe. It was finally published and republished in…
