Re: Whenever I Think About Pioneers

Over the years I heard much the same thing. Brigham Young received an inspiration during conference that the handcart companies were in trouble and immediately sent out a rescue party. When you read the actual history you find out this was far from the case.

Re: Electronics in church

Let's see, back in my earlier days we used quiet books to keep the little ones quiet. People read books in church, sometimes even scriptures. Coloring books, tic tac toe, dots. As long as I've been a member people have had distractions at church. Electronics are the latest and because advanced techn...
