Almost ready for the Word

Missionaries run into all kinds of people. Some are easier to teach than others!

It's not just a calling, it's an adventure!

Sis. DeFord appears in a lot of my Scouting cartoons. She's Mrs. Scouting in our area; she's done it all — Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Cubmaster, Scout Committee. And just last Sunday, she was in the foyer after church working on Friends of Scouting. Here's to you, Sis. DeFord — and all those others like you in wards everywhere!

Plus she makes a killer mint brownie!

A day in the life

That mantle wears heave some days!

Happy day, all is well

I don't know about you, but it seems to me that there's all sorts of stories about pioneers and trek experiences in the news lately. Whether it's Pres. Nelson addressing the Saints in Africa, or promotional materials about the new movie, pioneers seem to be everywhere — and it's not even July!

Here are a couple of my favorite pioneer/trek-themed cartoons. Enjoy, and let's be careful out there!

It's in the stars

Today is transfer day for our missionaries! In honor of that, here are a couple of cartoons that were written for some specific missionaries, although not particularly about missionary work.

Sketchbook: As seen from the back pews

Some of my best ideas come from quietly observing what goes on during church. Sometimes it's hard not to laugh out loud at inopportune times!

Getting through the rain

There are a couple of ways to cope with rainy days. The top one was a promotional ad for the New Era that they put in the programs at EFY.

Laugh or cry?

A couple of my favorite church-related puns. I can't be the only one who thinks of the Flintstones rather than Peter, James and John when they refer to the primitive church!

Sketchbook: Reviewing Conference

Here are a couple of sketchbooks that I kind of like. In fact, one day they may evolve to full-fledged cartoons. Put them together, and they make up our Gospel Doctrine lesson from Sunday school yesterday: a Jeopardy-style review of conference blended with the story of Joseph being sold into Egypt. Only our "Sunday school answers" had to be in the form of a question!

Welcome, welcome!

Everyone is always happy to have the missionaries come to the door, right?

Sending it in

Although many of my cartoons are church-themed, there are some that are not. Here are a couple of my favorites!

Primarily speaking

These are two of my favorites from Primary. I think we all have our own Sis. Browning.

Home teaching? It is no more!

We're starting our 10 year look back with a couple of cartoons that have just become obsolete. I figured I should run them now before we've forgotten what home teaching is all about!

Post-General Conference — and more!

What an amazing General Conference! It's difficult to know where to begin — new apostles, priesthood organization, home teaching and visiting teaching evolving to ministering, and seven new temples! And so much more!

Pres. Nelson recommended we review the talks several times over the next few months. One thing that may help in your review is a copy of my General Conference notes — here's a link to a downloadable PDF on Dropbox.

This General Conference also marks the 10 year anniversary of my blog! It started after listening to Elder Scott's talk from April 2008. Long story there, but let it suffice to say that the Spirit spoke to me during that talk.

To celebrate the 10-year anniversary, we'll be rerunning some of my favorites from the past decade. I think you'll enjoy it.

Thank you for your support, and thanks for coming back! Enjoy!

Priesthood Session

I was expecting priesthood stories — what we got was more like classroom instruction! It was an awesome meeting, though. Especially when Pres. Nelson had us all stand up by our offices and then sing, "Rise Up, O Men of God!"

Saturday Afternoon

Saturday Morning

It's conference time!

It's time again for LDS General Conference! I'll be taking notes and posting them as soon as they are available. Come back later and check them out!

Just like home!

I don't think that anyone would dare try this, but I wonder what would happen if they did?
