The 12 Days of Christ

I’m writing this post directly to my family. But I like you readers so much I wanted to share it with you too. : ) ———— Guys, I want you to join me in a brand new family tradition. It’s called The 12 Days of Christ. It’s fairly simple. Each day for 12 days leading up to Christmas, we’ll have one person share a scripture/story/testimony about Christ.

GEEK.Q.P. — Use tech to organize an Elders Quorum

Here’s how we’ve organized our Elders Quorum: We have a Google Sites site, and it links to all the important documents people might need.   After the home page, we have a page for the sacrament. There’s a Google Spreadsheet embedded in the page that can be edited by anyone on the web. So our Elders use that page to easily sign up for preparing, blessing, and passing the sacrament.
