Postcards From Buster: Mormons Being Treated Fairly

One of my favorite episodes to watch with my kids is an episode of Post Cards From Buster. Back a several years ago, I was flipping through the TV something that I don't do very often as I am really busy and don't care for TV very much.

I still respect the film maker, and his choices are none of my business. However, there has been very few missionary films actually produced in recent years, but a few years ago they actually had quite a few. Here are some of the ones that I do like. You probably have already seen them but thought I would list some of...

Going Out at 18 Instead of 19

So I started my first year of College which I was not ready for and struggled in a couple of classes got okay grades but did not know what I was doing and being distracted by knowing that I had to prepare to leave for my mission. I spent a year in limbo trying to make it...
