Sunday Musings of the Spirit: There's an App for That

I used to see lots of "Sunday bags" at church--bags containing scriptures, manuals, paper and pencils, etc.  Now, with smart phones, tablets, and e-readers, people pack lighter for church.

 Just this week, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced the release of a 2013 edition of the scripturesEven for those not of our faith, this edition of the King James version of the Holy Bible should serve as a wonderful resource.  

Want to study a particular topic?  Go to the Topical Guide and find references to that subject.  Click on the reference, and you will jump right to that scripture.  Curious about how far it is between Nazareth and Bethlehem?  Look at the maps.  Want to see the Garden of Gethsemane?  Go to the Bible photos.  Reading along and wonder about a particular phrase?  Check the footnotes.  I really can't stress enough how useful this edition of the Bible can be--and you can't beat the price (FREE)!

Anyone can go to this site, and under "Gospel Library", click on your platform, and learn how to download the Bible to your device.   Make sure to download the study aids, too.  If you prefer an actual, paper-paged book, that can be requested here.  (The updated print version will not be available until this summerThe current version does have the resources I mentioned, though, but the updated version contains new photos and updated information.)

If you decide to download a copy, I'd love to hear your opinion! 



Thanks for the ways in which technology blesses our lives, and thanks for the scriptures, no matter what format!

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
