A Bishop was holding a leadership meeting. A baby in the nearby nursery was crying, making it difficult for the Bishop to conduct the meeting. He excused himself and left the room. After a couple of minutes he returned and continued the meeting — not a sound was heard from the baby. At the end of the meeting, one ward member asked him how he got the baby to be quiet. “Simple”, said the Bishop. “I ordained him a High Priest and he went right to sleep.”

Missionary Advice: “When a big mean, dog attacks you, Elder, just remember, you don’t have to run faster than the dog, … you just have to outrun your companion.”
When the MTC was built in Provo, beautiful green athletic fields were planted so the missionaries would have a place to exercise. However, they were so inviting that BYU students were attracted there, and you would see BYU students out playing touch football, throwing Frisbees, etc., on the missionaries’ field. To deal with this problem, a large banner was posted, which read “Missionaries Only.”
The next day, BYU students were out on the field, playing touch football and throwing Frisbees. They had posted a new banner which read, “Every member a missionary.”

How many Mormons does it take to change a light bulb? It depends!
If it is the Relief Society it takes four. One to fix refreshments. One to bring the tablecloth. One to design the Center Piece, And one to screw in the light bulb.
If it is the Bishopric, forget it, they don’t do light bulbs. They call a Priesthood Executive Council And delegate it to the Elders.
If it is the Elders it takes four. Three that don’t show up, and One to change the bulb.
If it is the High Priests it takes four. Two to push the wheel chairs. One to handle the oxygen tank, And one to screw in the light bulb.
If it is the Home Teachers, it only takes two, But you have to wait until the end of the month.
If it is the Aaronic Priesthood, it only takes one. He holds the light bulb in the socket And the whole world revolves around him.
Joe: My home teacher is so good he comes on the first day of every month!
Henry: Oh Yeah? My home teacher is so good he comes the day before that!
