Ye who are called to labor


Yes, there’s a lot more that missionaries do each day. And, no, we shouldn’t include eating and sleeping — that’s part of the training regimen!

No Fast Pass accepted

If the story of Moses and the children of Israel teaches us anything, it’s that it takes a lot of work to make it to the promised land!

Sketchbook: Hitting the wall, or Hang in there

I came across this in an old sketchbook — probably drawn in the early days of the pandemic. It's not particularly a funny drawing, but to me it seemed kind of poignant. 

We all have down days, days that seem futile. But with patience, perseverance and enduring to the end (to me, that means not giving up in the middle), life will work it out.

Pres. Hinckley said the same thing“It isn’t as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don’t worry. I say that to myself every morning, If you do your best, it will all work out. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us.”

Morning report

As we read the story of Caleb, Joshua and the other ten scouts spying out the promised land, it occurred to me that the trend of labeling something you disagree with as "fake news" is not a new trend.

Lost in space

The idea for today's cartoon comes from my faithful padawan. I like the "planet" variation on the gag. It made me laugh.

Road trip!

Apparently it takes about 11 days to travel from the base of Mt. Sinai to the promised land. Anyone who has taken a road trip with their family knows that travel times are only theoretical. 

On a side note, our ward had a fundraising auction for FSY and girl's camp. One of the things I auctioned off was the chance to be featured in a cartoon. The winner was the Thayer family, featured in the first panel.

Now you know the rest of the story!
