This is post 2 of 2 in the series “Children's Devices Use” I like the idea of a phone contract, if it is done well with the right amount of seriousness and lightheartedness. Interestingly, in therapy, we are discovering that “contracts” are not usually an effective method. In fact it often enables problems. For example, creating a contract has a tendency to remove one from living the principles and concepts to living by the letter of the law. Making the parent have to spell everything out, as the child then becomes brilliantly (or desperately) clever in finding loopholes. “Well,...Read More

Editor’s note: you can always plug a laptop, tablet, or cell phone into a library TV directly, to display videos, images, and presentations at an LDS Church building. You can even use a Chromecast.

I want to stand in the Sacred Grove. I’d like to see Carthage Jail. How cool would it be to visit the Hill Cumorah?

Always prefaced by qualifiers like “It would be nice to…” or “If only we didn’t have hospital bills…” these ephemeral aspirations were little more than fantasies, and certainly...Read More

When I received my call, I was ecstatic to watch anything about Argentina. Unfortunately back then there were only one or two documentaries about Argentina we could find at the library. Now, with the explosion of Youtube, I no longer have difficulty finding videos about Argentina—I just have the difficulty of sifting through all the videos out there to find informative videos I actually want to watch.

MLH reader Blake Webster shares an excellent tip to easily remember passwords, while keeping them safe and secure, by not using the same one everywhere. The passwords that we create for email, Facebook, bank accounts, Twitter, etc. all need to have a certain amount of letters, one capitalized letter, and a number or two as well. In order to achieve an easy to remember password, as well as one that will not be easily predicted or guessed by others, I simply use a verse of scripture as my password. At first I started using my favorite verses or chapters,...Read More
