Hey everyone, It is so awesome to see you all peeking in when you get a chance and checking out the new stuff. There is even more new things happening in the very near future. I am actually going to be changing the name of the blog to, “Our Marching Orders: from this conference to the next” It refers to a talk at BYU, given by Ezra Taft Benson, in February of 1980 when he was still an apostle. The speech is called “Fourteen Fundamentals in Following the Prophet” and you can find it here. He stated that:
“The living prophet has the power of TNT. By that I mean “Today’s News Today.” God’s revelations to Adam did not instruct Noah how to build the ark. Noah needed his own revelation. Therefore, the most important prophet, so far as you and I are concerned, is the one living in our day and age to whom the Lord is currently revealing His will for us. Therefore, the most important reading we can do is any of the words of the prophet contained each week in the Church Section of the Deseret News and any words of the prophet contained each month in our Church magazines. Our marching orders for each six months are found in the general conference addresses, which are printed in the Ensign magazine.”(emphasis added)
To make that as easy as possible, so that the web address matches the name of the blog (http://ourmarchingorders.wordpress.com) and because of time constraints in my life, it is actually going to be a “new” blog. Eventually this blog will become my business site Kustom Karin. I have been creating a new career in the tech filed as a web developer, because my name is the website, it works well for that.
The new site is so exciting because I am being able to build it from the ground up with all of the information I have learned over the last couple of years about setting up a site, and running a blog. It is already looking exactly like I wanted it to when I started this a couple of years ago. There are a lot of new feature pages, new organizational tools so that anyone visiting the sight can find exactly what they need and want, and I must say it is coming along nicely. I am hoping to have everything completed by the week of March 23 in time for Conference.
This site is in the process of getting an upgrade so that it can become a professional portfolio.
That will be the week that I do my “preparing for conference series,” another exciting new feature that is actually almost complete.
To make the whole process of change easier for you, for the first couple of weeks I will be posting at both this and the new site, with a Notice to follow the new site and to change any bookmarks you may have. Eventually this sight will simply have a notice showing the new address and like I said, this sight will become an archive, and I will have it taken off of all of the browsers, so there is no confusion.
But for all of you here right now you are more than welcome to go to the new sight check things out (new stuff is going up everyday!) and hit that follow link so that you are on top of every change.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement. I am really looking forward to you all joining me in all of these exciting new ventures.
Oh one last thing 🙂 beginning Saturday March 28th with the General Women’t Session I will actually be blogging live ALL sessions of conference. I hope you all can at least stop in and jump into the conversation of what is being said. I’m hoping to have one of my graphic artists there most of that time, so we can start putting up Conference Meeme’s as they happen. Who know? Anything is possible!
