What a fantastic book/ movie! 

Will write more soon.


This one’s alright.

Most people think the first book is best,

but I actually quite like “Catching Fire” myself.


A mock trial is a rehearsed or imitation trial in which young people may gain experience about the the legal system.  This is one of the few usages of the word mock that does not connote unkindness or condescension; instead it simply means that a trial is simulated.

And [there were] people… in the attitude of mocking and pointing their fingers towards those who had come and were partaking of the fruit.

-1st Nephi 8:27*


Don’t go mocking

when you’re talking!

-Ms. Wilkinson


*This is an important scene from Lehi’s dream in the Book of Mormon.  It describes people making fun of those who decided to partake of the fruit of the tree of life.  Read an analysis of this glorious vision here.  And here is yet another explanation laid out in simpler terms that even a young child could comprehend.

Lawyer Stereotypes….

Lawyers get a bad name.  Sleezy lawyer jokes; we’ve all heard them!  Anyways, my father defies all of those.  He was a lawyer, but is also a scriptural/doctrine heavyweight.  And he’s stayed true to God all these years.

Think Atticus Finch, ya’ll.  Love ya Dad!

PS.  A few years ago, there was an article written in the BYU Alumni magazine about this kind of idea of lawyers not being sleeze-bags.  It was called “In Search of Atticus Finch” based on an idea by Mike Papantonio.  I can download it as a PDF, but don’t know how to attach it to this blog.  If you are interested, google it!
