What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Bowling: Logan Fun House

Bowlng and Fun House in Logan.  It took me a while to warm up, but I ended with a lot of spares.  Don't think I ever got a strike. However I did end well over 100, and was the top scorer for our group.  However Caleb let Todd take a couple turns, and if not for that he would have won easily. 

I am not sure if the little kids preferred bowling or the jungle gym.  The really enjoyed the long slide.

Mom's 89th Birthday

Mom was very happy with her birthday party.  She at times struggled with remembering who everyone was, and that she was 89, but it was a good day, and a good time.  It was good to see so many nieces nephews and loved ones.  Even Cassidy was there, at the end so not in pictures.  Five of mom's granddaughters are now pregnant, Rachelle, Amber, Linsey, Charity and Annie.

Saturday Afternoon Session of General Conference

This is the first time Sheri and I have actually attended general conference.  This is the first time I have attended conference in the Conference Center.  We were sitting in the balcony, three rows from the front.  e could have sat in the front, but Miranda said it would make her dizzy.
      The Saturday afternoon session is when the sustaining votes were called for the general authorities of the church.  It included the calling of five new brethren to the presidency of the seventy.  (It was the morning session where the solemn assembly took place sustaining the new First Presidency and two new apostles.)  This replaced the two members of this group who had become apostles.  The Young Women General Presidency was also reorganized.
      After the sustaining votes, while people were taking their seats on the stand, someone from the audience yelled three times: "Stop Supporting Sexual Predators."  It sounded to us like a man, but later was reported to be a woman who was asked to leave.  The person was seated not too far from us.  I figure this had reference to my former mission president who has been in the news.
We were favored with some excellent discourses.  This included Elder Devin Durrant, Sister Bonnie Oscarson, Elder David Bednar and Elder Dale Renlund, Elder Kevin Jergensen, Elder Taylor Godoy and Elder Taniela Wakolo.  Jeremy found us a couple times in the TV feed.
