Fool me twice

Have you ever noticed how many times disguises are used in the Book of Mormon? My favorite is when Abinadi returns to the city in dissguise, then announces, "It's me, Abinadi! In disguise!"

I'd call that less effective.

Step by step

As I was reading Jacob 5 the other day, I began to wonder what it would be like to use Jacob's gardening methods today.

Happy feet

One of the great blessings in life is being able to let your feet run free!

Service risks

There's always that bit of a gamble when someone else cooks for you...

The best presents are surprises!

There were a few years where I had to closely supervise what the kids got mom for Mother's Day. Otherwise she'd wind up with Pokémon cards, the latest video game, or a bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos.

They do better now. Last year she only got one bag of snack food!

You shouldn't have

You know how in school or Primary, kids often make the best handmade presents for Mother's Day? That got me to thinking that there weren't a lot of shopping options for Lehi's family out there in the desert. So naturally they'd make their presents for Sariah, right? And Nephi is best known for making (a) a ship, (b) a bow, and (c) gold plates. Which of those would make the best gift for mom out there?
