D&C 57-59

I had a fun time with this lesson.  I felt like I had a clear focus, which gave me a chance to really push my lesson home.  I do wish I had more time to polish it, but I spent the day Monday Christmas-ing up the house for my daughter, and didn't realize I hadn't […]

D&C 8-9, 11-16

After last week, I thought that the class might be dwindling to an unsustainable level.
