    If 2 hour church is a thing, the days of tithing settlement have got to be numbered, right?

    My 2 year old is going to be legit pissed once she realizes she's getting hosed out of her bubble time in Nursery. She loves every minute of Nursery.

    I'm looking forward to the ward family luncheon after Sunday School... we don't have to leave the building and we can socialize.

    Funeral potatoes and Green Bean casseroles.

    I actually missed that announcement last time around. I'm kind of bummed, actually.

    Does that mean it alternates with the women’s meetings each GC?

    I counted that. 48 hours from regular church and 2 hours from General Priesthood session. If we get Stake Conference down to one hour he will just be running up the score.

    Yup. Make sure you go to PH meeting tonight. Otherwise you’ll have to wait a whole year before it comes around again.

    I’ve been teach youth Sunday school for 5 years now, today’s announcement genuinely made me sad. By far the best time of my week is the hour spent on Sunday school with my kids.

    Apparently Oaks spoke but I slept through it. Sounds like he laid down the law on supporting SSM.
