Hash it out

There has been quite the little tempest about the announcement that the hashtag #LDSConf is going away and being replaced by #GeneralConference. I'm sure it's not a sign of the pending Apocalypse, but it is a good thing that Twitter recently doubled the amount of characters that can be used in a tweet!

And speaking of #GeneralConference, it's time again to download the Mormon Cartoonist's General Conference Activity Packet! It's great for families, classes, and even yourself to help you get more out of General Conference. And there are multiple languages to choose from! Download your copy today!

Seek ye first

Someone once said that our ancestors on the other side help us more than we know. This is probably one of those circumstances where they'd be happy to help!

Singing the songs of Zion

He must be in the 11-year-old class.

Cleanliness is next

Our missionary told us that they spent their Preparation Day doing chores and cleaning the house.  That's a lot of time to spend cleaning a small apartment!

Sketchbook: Trying to avoid this

Maybe it's just me, but I often get this image of a head full of helium when someone warns against "light-mindedness."

Training day

Sometimes it takes a little while to get the hang of being a missionary.

Pieces of tithing

Yes, once again it's Talk Like A Pirate Day! Annoy your friends! Annoy your family! Annoy your bishop!

Sketchbook: Following the prophet (if it's not too hard)

This was from my sketchbook as I thought about Pres. Nelson's schedule over the past six months. He was up here in the Pacific Northwest just this last weekend. It's about three more weeks until General Conference — that gives him plenty of time to visit a number of other places in the meantime!

Playing catch up with a 94-year-old

I usually try not to run more than one of my strips on this site during a week, unless I'm running through a storyline. But I thought this one was something that a lot of us could relate to!

Today Pres. Nelson is holding a conference in Seattle in the stadium the Mariners play in. They're expecting a crowd of more than 40,000. Average attendance for a Mariners game is less than 33,000 this season.

Where does he find time to get ready for General Conference? And, like we collectively said at the end of each session in April, what's next?

Count your many footsteps, name them one by one

Our missionaries go by foot. No bikes, no cars. Just the occasional ride from members. I often wonder how long it would take for them to blow past the Fitbit standard of 10,000 steps a day.

Special for the sibling

Lifelong members of the church use the terms "sister" and "brother" without thinking twice. It can be a bit confusing for someone who is new to the Church. It's all part of our crazy vocabulary!

Sketchbook: Time to move it, move it

Every now and then, my Fit Bit sends me notifications that I've been sitting too long. Usually it happens in the middle of a meeting. I wonder what the consequence would be if I got up and left because my Fit Bit told me to?

Feeling drained

The other day, one of my electronic devices said, "Battery is exhausted."

I thought, "Oh, yeah? Me too!"

Life is but a dream

It probably would have helped my GPA had I stayed awake in math class more often!

One one hand; on the other hand

They say that using chopsticks is so easy that even little kids can do it. I don't buy that for a second!

Sketchbook: Primary powers

Our Activity Day girls are having a superhero-themed camp next week. It got me thinking what it might be like to have superheroes in Primary. Besides the teachers, I mean!

When the zone leaders ask

Especially since our zone leaders weren't above pulling a few pranks every now and then!
