BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA MEMBERSHIP RESOLUTION AND THE LDS CHURCH
On May 23rd, The Boy Scouts of America voted to make a membership change to allow all youth to participate in the Boy Scout program - while maintaining strong conviction to Duty to God.

Following the passing of the resolution, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints reaffirmed its century-old strong association with the Boy Scouts of America.  You can read a new book, "Scouting in the LDS Church - A Centennial History" - which is available now - and in reading the book, you will know and feel of the Church's commitment to Scouting and the youth of our nation.  You can see how the new change fits with the Church association with Scouting over the past century and you can know that the Church will move forward with the BSA into the 2nd Century.

See the book Foreword information on this website and read the words by Elder Vaughn J. Featherstone, Former General Young Men President.  Orders are being taken now for a limited edition of a hardbound book.  Order on this site by July 4th - through the drop-down menu or direct with a check to Kevin V. Hunt at PO Box 8795, Mesa, AZ  85214

Newly Revised Scouting History Book

Twenty years ago, I wrote a book about the great LDS/Scouting Partnership - of Scouting in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Anyway, I have just updated the book to bring it to the second century and to make it truly a Centennial Book – to go with the Church’s LDS-BSA Centennial Celebration this year (May 2013).  The book is now called “Scouting in the LDS Church – A Centennial History”.

There are several changes to this newly updated book.
85 new source documents! (as listed in the Bibliography)
Spacing and repagination makes a much easier to read version
Bold subheadings throughout the book for easy reference
Truly a “Centennial History”
Quotes or mentions Pres. Monson 80 times!
Chapters are revised – almost all of them (chapter order also revised)
Addition of three new chapters: “Doing our Duty to God”, “Mountain-top Experiences”, and “Scouting is Here to Stay”
Book – with repagination, etc. is now 300 pages!

I am soon placing an order for a limited hard-bound edition.  I invite you to order a copy of the new book.  Orders may be placed at the right of this blogsite.  Use the pull-down menu and select the proper book and then you can pay through Paypal.
