Anonymous asked: Do you ever look at blogs and go, "Wow! Clearly with Monson as the profile pic and a name like 'F0110VV_Th3_P20ph3T', they should be a great LDS blog to follow!" only to find that they have like no LDS content but then you get someone with a gaming icon and a URL like Tumblr-Spambot-2000 and surprisingly all their content is straight from the general authorities or the scriptures?

lol my friend companion-cube-76 has a url with a Portal reference but 100% of the content is like you said, straight from gen authorities and scriptures. And for the other part, yes I totally know what you mean, but there are good and bad blogs like that.

5 Essential Things You Should Teach Your Son Before He’s a Deacon

#2

Remember when you were 12?  You stressed every morning if your hair was combed perfectly. You worried about what your friends thought of your clothes, the way you talked, the things you did.

Add to that the (relatively) new world of selfies, social media, and mobile devices and you’ve got a 12-year-old Narcissus on your hands.

But the priesthood is just opposite of that. The priesthood is meant to serve others. Point out to your prospective deacon that he will not even pass the sacrament to himself. He always partakes from someone else.

 The priesthood designed to selflessly bless the lives of others, and it’s important for your deacon to understand he should avoid drawing attention to himself while fulfilling his priesthood responsibilities.

Help him understand how to avoid being a distraction when he is passing the sacrament. He can and should help the congregation focus on only two people in that moment: Jesus Christ and themselves.

acting-on-agency asked: This is a like a legit question by the way, and I'm not about to pick on anything I've just always wanted to know. Why aren't guys allowed to have a beard at BYU? I agree with your moustache point though, they're on the verge of creepy but I like facial hair on a guy (in the beard perspective) just not a Brigham Young beard.. adds decades haha

I totally love facial hair on a guy too (my husband flat out refuses to try to grow his beard and it saddens me, but he’s cute regardless ;D ). I’m not 100% sure on WHY that’s in the honor code but here are my guesses. In much of society, clean shaveness is more appropriate for all occasions. Also, the honor code states no wild hair styles or unnatural colors. Generally, or at least in the areas I’ve been to, you cannot have a beard and be a temple worker or in the bishopric. It’s culturally a respectful and clean type of thing. It helps maintain a respectful and clean image and environment for people to work and learn. Socially, we tend to try to follow certain guidelines that allow us to present ourselves in a professional and humble way. Keeping a clean shaven face is along those guidelines. 

Jesus wore a beard perhaps for the same reason our men today do not. Cultural norm as a rabbi in the Jewish culture. He would not have been taken as seriously if he didn’t have a beard, he would have looked more like a Roman and people might not have listened to him. 

If anyone has real knowledge on the subject instead of guesses like me, I’d love to get an Ask or piece of fanmail so I can learn! Please and thank you!!!

Don’t like that a moustache is ok but not a beard. Beards can be attractive but only a moustache is almost always veering towards creepy. Ban the stache, BYU!

Don’t just tell them so that they can understand, tell them so that they cannot misunderstand.

yes yes yes yes yes. Love this because 1. This kind of teaching helps prevent false and misinterpreted doctrine. 2. Tall Cake always tries to do this; to teach by answering questions before they’re asked/thought up. Not only to show a truth, by how it’s true and why it’s true. He brings up commonly thought falsehoods or rumors and corrects them before I ever hear about them. He makes me think. He’s on of my favorite teachers and I love this teaching style!

Holy cow I’m oblivious to almost all things Hollywood

Tall Cake and I have seen every episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead. I’ve seen both Boondock Saints movies and owned the first one. SOMEHOW I was completely unaware until this moment in time that FREAKING NORMAN REEDUS is both Daryl and Murphy. No wonder he’s everyone’s fave <3 <3 <3
