Family Night Fun

Skating is the latest craze. The kids prefer different types of wheels but they enjoy moving together. It’s active, fun, and makes for some great family time.

Visit to the Redwoods

I was fortunate this week to have been able to travel around California. During the trip I reconnected with family and enjoyed some time in one of my favorite places – the northern California redwood forests. 

I was born and raised in this place and nothing can replace the sense of home I feel in these woods. Here’s some pics of my favorite groves.

Seeing through the mist

I have always loved the story of Lehi’s dream in the Book of Mormon. Even though I have read it many times, I constantly learn something new. This video (not produced by the LDS church) uses portions of Elder Holland’s talk “Safety for the Soul” where he discusses the meaning of the mists of darkness from Lehi’s vision and what God has done to guide us through troubled times.

 

My talented daughter

Here’s a pic of my daughter helping me shoot a video walk through of my latest coloring book.  She also attached a song for my video in garage band.  She’s amazing!

A new missionary

The missionaries stopped by that to introduce a new missionary. He’s a remarkable guy with a great spirit.  The kids enjoyed gathering and listening to him talk about Christ.

Took #6 to Miami for our final basketball tournament.  It was a fun weekend for just the two of us.

Life flight

Not what I like to see on the way to work.  All lanes on I95 blocked for the life flight helicopter.  Praying everyone is ok.

Enduring Hope

I love the way the Book of Mormon prophet Nephi writes about Christ and how we should center or lives on Him.  From 2 Nephi 31:21-

Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.

Vacation’s Over

Back to work I go.  At least there was light traffic today.
