The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra members always receive a very detailed itinerary prior to each tour. Our 2015 Atlantic Coast Tour itinerary arrived one week prior to departure.

The 1940 US Census will be released on April 2, 2012 and is being made available for family searches, genealogical work and historical research. A little video was released this week created by FamilySearch to announce this exicting news.
A solid American oath for Memorial Day, and an enduring anthem for every day.

How can we fix this problem or make any difference at all? Here are a few of my thoughts on our current situation, along with 5 Keys to Financial Freedom, a beautiful song, and a way to make life count!
