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: Dad's Influence Edition

Infant-me, sitting on the wood floor, looks up at my dad, who is sitting on a brown sofa and smiling down to me Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement.  I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me. My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis. When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a paren

Ten Things of Thankful: Summer Strawberries and Procrastinated Projects

A brilliantly-colored dark pink and purple fuchsia blossom You would think that by the time a person reaches my age, she would not be surprised by the passing of time, yet I find myself nearly constantly amazed that a certain amount of time has passed--whether that be a week, month, year, or couple of decades. Earlier this year, I planted a garden. Yesterday I harvested my first strawberry. Earlier this year, I also planted fuchsia starts, and now the flowers are blooming. How is that possible? (And why am I surprised?) Sometime around the turn of the century (and it still seems strange to use that phrase about the year 2000), we bought a circa 1935 dresser. It needed some TLC, but had a cool curvy front. This past week, I finally got around to applying some Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax, and now the dresser still looks old, but not dilapidated. I still need to apply some hide glue to some loose pieces, but I'm counting progress as a win. For as long as I can remember, I've be

Ten Things of Thankful: From Sunrise to Moonset

Cars and trucks on a highway travel toward the rising sun                                    John and I made a quick, task-oriented trip to California last week. We wore our masks and stayed at an acceptable social distance from others (which is hard for grandchildren to understand, but we mostly succeeded.) We're now home, and at the "I need a vacation to recover from my 'vacation' " stage, which makes sitting down to compose a TToT post a bit of a challenge. However, I know that I will feel better by the end of this post, so bear with me if you will.  1. I'm thankful that we had no problems with traffic going there or coming home. We left our hotel at about quarter to four on Friday morning. The early start, fewer families traveling this year, or, most likely, a combination of the two, made for an easy drive.  2. I'm thankful for books to help pass the time. We haven't actually finished yet (as I was reading aloud, and my voice can only last for so l
