Gospel study tool

Image
I've used the Study Notebook feature on lds.org for over a year. During that time, I've seen it evolve dramatically. It seems to me that updates have accelerated over the past few months. This tool has gone from something I used simply to claim that I keep a study journal to the hub of my gospel study. I can bookmark, annotate, highlight, and even make separate journal entries. I can organize all of these items by notebook, by tag, and by type. And best of all, I can cross reference across all church materials (standard works, general conferences, devotionals, manuals...you name it) with the click of a mouse. This tool can facilitate a completely immersive gospel study experience.


In addition to its great functionality, the Study Notebook is stored in the cloud, so you can access it anywhere you have a computer and the internet. Also, this amazing tool will soon work together with LDS mobile scripture apps which will soon sync with your Study Notebook.

French cuisine

Tonight a very generous friend treated us to dinner at a French restaurant in Pacific Grove, CA. It was my first experience with French food, and I won't be forgetting it any time soon. I had chicken mushroom tomato soup, and then roast chicken. Our group ordered white chocolate cake and raspberry pie for dessert.

Every bite was a dream.

Live classical guitar music was the icing on the (proverbial) cake. And the company was excellent!

Childhood dream

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a marine biologist so that I could swim with orcas. Free Willy was my favorite movie.




Now I live on the Monterey Bay, a hotspot for marine biology.
Coincidence?
