Church Geeks

For the Mormons out there, it was General Conference last weekend. That is where we all have a bunch more meetings and listen to our prophet.

I don't want to get all sappy, but I had an eye opening experience last weekend. I was blown away by some insight into my personal life, which happened because I was sitting and listening to the speakers. It clarified things for me and I'm amazed how powerful it was.

I guess that's what happens when you're in the right place at the right time, doing what you should be doing.

Last weekend, also meant it was time for our third semi-annual Conference Jeopardy.

My brother and his family were in town, so the teams were huge, and let's just say everyone got really passionate about their point totals. I guess they don't trust my math skills (which is probably good because I don't trust them either).

I also tried my hand at a trophy again, but this time I tried to make it a little more "humanoid" shaped (adding a second arm), And I tried to make a base so it would stand up on its own.

Since my creativity has taken an early vacation this year, I went with the Angel Moroni again. Here it is. To compare to the real thing and to my sad attempt in October, you'll have to click the above link (or you can click here).

Very nice! I made a trophy for my husband when we were dating since his team lost the intramural championship. Yours is much better than my soccer one was. :)

Dude. You should host a contest, and whomever wins it, wins a foil Moroni.

We call it Mormicon in my family. And we've never played Jeapordy, though we do have favorite M-Tab singers that we've given nicknames to and shout out when we see them.
