You should be a spiritual mustard seed, not a mentos geyser

According to C.  your spirituality (and how you act) should be like the return we get from that planted mustard seed.  Not necessarily showy, but a steady yield.  It shouldn’t be like a mentos geyser.  Flashy, lots of fun for the moment, and over quickly.

I wouldn’t have thought you could pull an object lesson out of doing mentos geysers for Family Home Evening, but I think he did a pretty good job.



Of course this was also all in the interest of science.  We had to know if the number of mentos make a difference to the height of the geyser.

I’m also here to attest that there was absolutely no fizz left in the soda.

It was awesome.

  1. WHOA!!!! this is so cool – you guys are like the myth busters!! and I love that you can bring spirituality into a science trick C. !! Annica was asking about C. the other day – “who was that boy that came to the baseball game with us again mommy? And whats his friend’s name? (greg)”

  2. What a great FHE lesson! I’m so impressed! I’ve always wanted to try the mentos geyser thing…but then I kind of don’t want my boys to learn to make that kind of mess just yet! =) Your blog seriously makes me smile.
