A friend of mine up the street asked me to build a "time machine" for the children's class at church. The kids will be able to take turns pushing buttons and flipping switches until a visitor from the past magically comes through the time machine. Expected visitors include Adam and Eve, Lehi and Sariah from the Book of Mormon, and Joseph Smith. The visitors will then take a few minutes to share experience from their lives and answer questions. Great idea, don't you think?

You can imagine the look on my next door neighbor's face when saw me out back in the cold November dusk, spray painting a larger-than-life box as a storm was rolling in! "What are you doing?" she called out. "I'm building a time machine!" Of course!
