Monday, Feb. 15LDS.org beta: North Temple announces that "the latest design for lds.org just went beta," and you can be one of the first to see this version of the coming changes. You can give feedback on the General Conference pages, the Ward and Stake Directory and Calendar and Leader Resources. Mormons growing: "Catholics, Mormons, Assemblies of God growing; mainline churches report a continuing decline" reports the National Council of Churches' 2010 Yearbook of American & Canadian Churches. They explain that in 2008 "the Latter-day Saints grew 1.71 percent to 5,873,408" and the church is fourth of the top 25 churches. President's Day: I wanted to find a good family home evening outline for this President's Day holiday and found this lesson plan built around the scripture quote "Wise Men Whom I Raised Up." Both discuss and express gratitude for how these "wise men" carried out "God's principles for good government."Voice Male: I thought this a bittersweet use for blog technology: "A Tribute to Phil Kesler" shares an In memoriam for "our friend and fellow Voice Male member. This page is to honor and remember him."
