Animal Sacrifice

My daughter's nap time has always been a bit more exuberant than a nap time should be- usually consisting of singing, jumping, and/or playing and not much napping. The other day, I found evidence that nap time had decayed into something worse than I had supposed:

Apparently, things got a bit "Temple of Doom". I guess that explains the face paint and torches...

Happy Father's Day! (Belated)

The importance of fatherhood. A sentiment I am grateful that my children and I are able to share:

"My father was a pattern of our Heavenly Father. His love and acceptance for others was unbounded. It was a simple and natural transfer of the love and trust I had for my earthly father to trust and love my Heavenly Father." 
-Neill F. Marriott, May 2013 "Ensign"

"Dads, is it too bold to hope that our children might have some small portion of the feeling for us that the Divine Son felt for His Father? ...[W]e do know that a young person's developing concept of God centers on characteristics observed in that child's earthly parents." 
-Jeffrey R. Holland, "The Hands of the Fathers"
