Christian Compass / Liahona

this is a Christiam Compass (Liahona) that we made that is a great table top decoration around the center it says "so shall the words of Christ point you in a straight course" (taken from AL 37:44-45) with "faith, hope, charity, humility, diligence, virtue and patience" written around the outside, the "pointer" in the middle can be turned, great reminder to have in a place where you see it every day to remind you of the course you want to go and how to get there.

2010 YM YW Theme Necklace/Keychain

with the new YM/YW theme for this year i did a Necklace/Keychain for our ward, to give the youth a little reminder they can carry with them.
with the theme being
Joshua 1:9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
i took from "be not afraid" and went with "Fear Not",  and went with Red for the color since in the Primary Color song "Red is for Courage".

    A friend had told me when i was younger "Fear is the absence of faith" that had been a great reminder to me through the years, as i was preparing a talk for the theme fireside i was thinking of this and the thought came to me that fear is faith, faith in something bad, where courage is faith in something good or faith in God, it occured to me that in life sometimes we let our faith in the power of bad things overcome our faith in good things and that is when we fear, so with this thought if we learn to place our faith in God we will "FEAR NOT"
we also made a necklace/keychain to go along with the emphasis  to "Be Strong"

made from thin stainless steel 1"x2" powdercoated red, avalable at our website at

Liahona Family Home Evening Chart

This is the Liahona Family Home Evening Chart that I created mid 2009, i was getting ready to make a family home evening board with the tags for my family and started thinking of ways that i could do something a little different than the regular board and tags, so.....this is what i came up with!

It is a great new way to keep track of whose turn it is for which activity, just turn the compass star each week to show whose turn it is next week, does the same thing as a family home evening board but much more attractive, does not take up any wall space and is a great table top decoration.
i have also done them for families that all the kids are grown up and moved out, a nice little decoration with all the family's names on the "Liahona"
aprox 6" wide, 6"tall
 it started out as being able to have 6 names on it, we have recently designed ones that have 4,5,7 & 8 spots to accomadate different  family sizes.
we have done 9&10, gets a little crowded but works

anyone wanting to purchase them can find them at our online store at
Online Store

6 Spots
on the 6 points of the star we have
prayer, scripture, song
lesson, activity, treat

7 spots
on the 7th point of the star we add another "prayer"

8 Spots
for the activities we put the original 6 plus another prayer or conduct, we can leave one blank to give somebody a "day off " when it hits them


4 Spots
on the 4 spot version we put
scripture, prayer
treat, lesson
if needed we could change what is put on(of the original six) to meet your needs


5 Spots

Scripture, treat, lesson
scripture, songif needed we could change what is put on(of the original six) to meet your needs
