Welcome to Part II of my best of 2016 awards in board games. This part will discuss the top 20 games of the year, the top 5 expansions, the best solo game experiences of the year, and a list of honorable mentions. It will then finish up with a few interesting statistics.
It’s that time of year again! It’s time, it’s time, it’s time! One of my favorite things to do each year is a look back of all the games I have played during the year. As in previous years, this is a two-part series. The first will look at the best and worst of...

After yesterday's General Conference, I want to start a weekly ponderize project. The scripture I have chosen for the first week is Isaiah 60:1-3: Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but
I have been away for a while…a long while, actually. A combination of a move and a vacation and a nasty cold have made me extremely delinquent in my writing here. But this week, at least, I have found some time.My topic this week is healing. Of all Christ did, the most plentiful of his
This week’s discussion is a topic that has been on my mind a bit lately. As seems to by typical of recent discussions, it is closely related to the Atonement. However, an event at Church today brought this topic to the front of my mind, and I decided to write about it. What I want
Next week is General Conference, which is typically a “week off” for me and these posts. Conference is a spiritual feast, so I will encourage all my readers to listen to the words of the prophet and apostles. Next week is also Easter, which is a wonderful chance to remember our Savior.

Lacey recently wrote me about an experience she had in teaching someone. As is the case with many investigators, the one she described was interested in the message of the Restoration of the Gospel, but was reluctant to turn his back on religious traditions he held dear. This week, I have decided to discuss
Just a shorter post this week. I have been going through some difficult changes personally - including a reorganization of my Sunday schedule. The result is that my rhythm is off, but normalcy is returning. If you recall, last time I wrote about scripture study, and I started off by reading the Lord’s promise to
A new year is upon us. As we are in the process of preparing ourselves to make the most of 2015, I decided to focus this week on something I always consider this time of year – how to make the most of the Scriptures. I suspect this will be a shorter discussion, but I
Since it’s Christmas this week, there is only really one appropriate topic. In the church, our children are taught a Christmas song called “Picture a Christmas." The song invites listeners and singers to imagine the events of the Nativity in order to make the Christmas celebration more meaningful. And this is what I would like
