Newsletter tool: I’ve mentioned this cool technology tool before, but you really need to check out this article from LDSTech about “Newsletter: A New Tool Now Available on Lds.org for Publishing Local Unit News.” As it explains, “Once your ward or stake has published content, articles for the newsletter appear in one column of news on the newsletter homepage, arranged in reverse chronological order. You can view the news you want to see by selecting the category on the right. The selected category filters the news.” Or in other words, it functions very much like your own stake or ward private blog, accessible through logging into your LDS account. Awesome. Check it out!
Olympic ideas: Hoping to do an Olympic-themed family home evening tonight? Try modifying some of these fun blog ideas, including making a family Olympic torch, learning about the Salt Lake City Olympic Park and eating an Olympic rings treat. You could also learn about the Mormons competing this year in London. I also loved these ideas for a “Primary Olympics” where kids review this songs using both cooperation and skill. And it wouldn’t be complete without gold medals to hand out to everyone at the end.
