Dream and pray, then go forth with faith

March 26, 2015, 4:04 pm - James Farrer

“To any of you who are troubled about the future …

“God expects you to have enough faith and determination and enough trust in Him to keep moving, keep living, keep rejoicing. In fact, He expects you not simply to face the future (that sounds pretty grim and stoic); He expects you to embrace and shape the future—to love it and rejoice in it and delight in your opportunities.

“God is anxiously waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams, just as He always has. But He can’t if you don’t pray, and He can’t if you don’t dream. In short, He can’t if you don’t believe” (“Terror, Triumph, and a Wedding Feast” [Church Educational System devotional, Sept. 12, 2004], 3, speeches.byu.edu).

- Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

Nerd Family

March 8, 2015, 8:47 pm - James Farrer

A few days ago I was looking into solar panels and the kids were curious so we proceeded to have an hour long conversation about electricity and the various methods of producing it along with the pros and cons of each method. They then asked about taxes so we discussed what they are, why we have them and the various methods of collecting them. They have since commented several times about how they like having those kinds of conversations.

Then tonight they were asking about the Hunger Games and Ender's Game. They had heard us talk about them a bit and were curious. After giving them a synopsis of each the two oldest wanted to read Ender's Game. They are now a couple chapters in and are quite enthralled.

I'm pretty sure that makes it official that I've got a nerd family. And it's Awesome!
