Response to Mitt Romney’s Speech on Trump

Addressed to Mitt Romney: I don’t know what your motives were for your speech today. I want to believe you spoke out not because of a political scheme to get an establishment candidate elected, but because you truly believe that Trump is a con man who is dangerous. I want to be clear: I’m not one who wants you to run. … Read more…

Save the Constitution

“Unfortunately, we as a nation have apostatized in various degrees from different Constitutional principles as proclaimed by the inspired founders. We are fast approaching that . . . prophesied [moment] . . . : “Even this nation will be on the very verge of crumbling to pieces and tumbling to the ground, and when the Constitution is … Read more…

Vote For the Constitution on Super Tuesday

Dear People of the Super Tuesday States,   Today is Super Tuesday, the day thousands and thousands of voters show up to nominate the candidate they want to eventually get elected to serve as our president.

So, without changing any of the words, I have put it below in a more readable format. Enjoy! The Declaration of Independence In Congress, July 4, 1776.

The Signs Preceding the 2nd Coming of Christ

A Prophet of God, Harold B. Lee, warned the LDS church of the dangers in giving priority to sources outside of the scriptures when studying the signs of the times. “There are among us many loose writings predicting the calamities which are about to overtake us. Some of these have been publicized as though they … Read more…

Is Repentance or Communism the Answer to “Climate Change”?

We’ve had some pretty terrible weather lately. Parts of my city are buried under about a foot of snow. Missouri is flooding. Texas is recovering from tornado outbreaks.

What Christmas Means to Me

Jesus is Jehovah made flesh. Jesus was sired by God our Eternal Father, and His mother was Mary, a mortal. Jesus was born to live as an example, teach us His new covenant/law, and perform the atonement and resurrection. His atonement and resurrection redeemed us from sin and death, thus creating a path we may choose to … Read more…

The Crucible of Foolishness

A crucible is a place or occasion of severe test or trial. There are many crucibles during life. Some people endure debilitating illness. Others are victims of abuse.

Defectors Can Be Made Into Disciples

“We are especially saddened when someone who once revered Joseph retreats from his or her conviction and then maligns the Prophet. ‘Studying the Church … through the eyes of its defectors,’ Elder Neal A. Maxwell once said, is ‘like interviewing Judas to understand Jesus. Defectors always tell us more about themselves than about that from … Read more…

Transparency and the LDS Church

One of the things I love about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the manner in which it handles controversy. There are so many issues that detractors would use, but the church meets issues head-on when it can. Consider the following articles as examples of when the church has addressed otherwise controversial topics in … Read more…

Communion with God via the Holy Spirit

It’s not the idea of Jesus that I like. The reality that there is a living person known as Jesus the Christ who lived, died, was buried, and rose again on the third day is what sustains me. If I thought for a second that Jesus is just an idea, or a deterrent, then I’d shrug him … Read more…

We Don’t Have to Recreate in Babylon!

Wholesome Recreation: it doesn’t have to be worldly to be refreshing. Why do we “flee” to Zion while carrying Babylon in our arms like a comforting teddy bear? Wholesome recreation is a practice of righteous family life! “Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, … Read more…

A Dark Day for Life

Multiple people were killed today in Roseburg, Oregon. God bless their loved ones, as well as all those who were injured. I can only imagine the heartache and terror they feel.

The Family is Ordained of God

“With so much of sophistry that is passed off as truth, with so much of deception concerning standards and values, with so much of allurement and enticement to take on the slow stain of the world, we have felt to warn and forewarn. In furtherance of this we of the First Presidency and the Council … Read more…
