Temple dedication: For all of us who missed the Kansas City Missouri Temple cultural celebration and dedication this past weekend, the LDS Public Affairs YouTube channels have provided beautiful video summaries of the two events. As one church member testifies, “It’s an amazing thing to have a temple in the Kansas City area that we can visit all the time.”

Jesus’s baptism: Have you seen the newest Mormon Messages Bible Video? It depicts one of the most important moments in the Savior’s ministry — when “Jesus is Baptized by John.” Wouldn’t this be a beautiful video to show at a baptism or to a prospective convert? Enjoy.

Casting call: Speaking of videos and New Testament times: Do you want to be in a new church movie? Do you fit any of the criteria listed in this casting call from the LDS Casting Office?

The Kansas City Missouri Temple was dedicated last weekend. LDS Public Affairs has posted videos of activities surrounding the dedication.

Tech savvy: Finally, I loved the advice given by Richard and Linda Eyre and Ken and Katie Craig in this new episode of “Tech Savvy” on the important issue of “Parenting in the Tech Age.” Richard Eyre recommends parents have their children practice speaking extemporaneously without the aid of mobile devices. Also, parents need to be aware technology has changed the way we communicate and they need to be willing to explore technology as well as set boundaries when needed.

Check out the entire episode.
