I live by lists

It’s true. One of my biggest strategies for getting anything done is to make a to-do list.

I’m particularly proud (albeit anxious at the same time) about that item below the pen.* I am giving a two-hour workshop presentation soon, complete with PowerPoint, and I successfully mated my laptop to my TV to test it out. 

No, of course I didn’t take a photo. It wasn’t on the list!

Here’s hoping that mating the laptop to the projector at the conference goes smoothly. The last time I used PowerPoint at a presentation, I had to borrow someone else’s laptop. This is a different machine and some circumstances are different, so I have high hopes.

Wish me luck!


* Yes, I do spell laptop with a C, after which I cross out the C and write an L over it.

Beautiful downtown Hunter Creek

Two cows and a bull (the black one) keep the grass cut. Arizona is a free range state. Cows freely range where they like, but their owners DO keep an eye on them. 

Coming tomorrow, Scandalous: An Owen Family Story.

(That is a paper printout of the ebook cover.)

More information tomorrow!

Choose the Right

One of the huge blessings of holiday weekends– no matter how much I may say about “flatlanders”–is the influx of people up here camping, using their cabins, and staying with friends or relatives, who plan to attend church services with our little congregation. Three young gentlemen even brought their Sunday suits so they could respectfully participate in passing the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper to the congregants. I don’t know if they had a cabin or were camping, but that really shows a level of respect for holy things not often seen in the young. 

Part of my Sunday service is spent with the children in Primary. For two hours they are taught eternal truths through song, story, and lessons.

We have a yearly theme. This year it’s Choose the Right. Today we had fifty-two children visiting our Primary. They were extraordinarily good, so the concepts they’ve been taught in their home churches have sunk deeply into their hearts. (Mormons use the same lesson materials world-wide.) They also have good parents.

We had a great time with our 52 visitors. Oddly enough, none of our member children attended today. They were visiting another ward or branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How was your Sunday?
