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!

It's #RootsTech Giveaway Time!

In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time. What I learned is that RootsTech has something for everyone, from the most beginner of beginners to professional DNA genealogists. If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech! RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events. 

After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address. 

Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer. I can't wait to hear his story!

RootsTech 2020 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and is bound to be the best one yet! I have been delighted to be accepted as an official RootsTech ambassador. One of the perks is that I received a c…

Ten Things of Thankful: So Long, October!

Although the number of good moments in October outnumbered the sad, I'm still thankful it is now November!

November brings:
1. a time change. I'm thankful that mornings will be lighter earlier.
2. John's birthday. I'm thankful for him, and love thinking of ways to make his day special.
3. Drexel's birthday. He will be 7 years old this month. Time passes so quickly! I'm thankful for him; he's a good dog. 
4. Thanksgiving. I'm thankful we have a designated day to remember to be thankful.
5. Oldest granddaughter's birthday. She will also be 7 this month. Time passes so quickly! I'm thankful for her; she's a sweet girl.

Other things I'm thankful for this week:
6. Books. I read Educated  and started It's All Relative. Educated is thought-provoking on many levels. I'm looking forward to finishing It's All Relative; I started it in the Baker City Public Library while waiting for our van to be repaired. My copy from Amazon should arrive late…

Ten Things of Thankful: Nearly Christmas Edition

This is a busy time of year, and though it isn't as busy for me as it has been in past years, my to-do list still seems longer than the hours in the days. However, I find that when I spend time to focus on the reason for the season, I can feel the joy of Christmas and the tasks-at-hand fall back into their proper place. This week I had the opportunity to attend some wonderful events, and I'd love to take you along for a virtual tour:

Let's start at the Conference Center on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, last Friday night. The Tabernacle Choir joined with the Orchestra at Temple Square and the Bells on Temple Square, along with dancers and guest artists Kelli O'Hara and Richard Thomas, to present a spectacular Christmas concert. Although I couldn't record any of the performance, the following 2-minute video from the church provides an overview:




The last time John and I had attended a Christmas concert by the Tabernacle Choir, they were still holding those conc…
