Pondering on Choices and Repentance

This article was previously published on Happy Meets Crazy.   Before you start reading, please promise me you'll read all the way to the end and especially read the end! The end is the most important part. In fact, if you'd rather just skip everything and go...

Gospel Math

In gospel math A+B doesn't always equal C. Do you believe that? If you have been a member of the Church for any length of time or served a mission, you know what I mean. The blessings of the gospel are apparent everywhere you look. Do you see it?   Let me give...

10 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me Before I got Married

You're blissfully happy, having found that special one you want to marry.  He proposes and you say yes. You start planning the wedding.  And the stress begins, and pretty soon you're wondering if all this headache is worth it.  Sound familiar?     It's seriously...

Throwing Stones and Shooting Arrows at the Wall

Those silly, and obviously wicked, Nephites throwing stones and shooting arrows at Samuel the Lamanite on the city wall.  Why were they so blind and hard hearted?  They knew truth. They'd made covenants recently after the life changing famine. How could they have lost...

My life as a Jedi

The latest trailer in Star War trilogy was released last Friday (March 14, 2017) which has stirred up fans for the coming story line in the next movie released December 15th. “What’s going to happen next?” is the question on everyone’s mind.   I have been a fan...

Pearls Before Nice People (or Learning Humility)

Jesus once said:   Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. (Matthew 7:6)   Many years ago (10? 11?), I was visiting a ward out of state. During...

Are We in Control of Our Health?

So, in my last article I focused on the low fat/fat free myth and how you should eat natural, not man made fats if you want to improve your overall health. I also covered food coloring and the idea of going back to a simpler way of eating without so many prepackaged...

The Interview

It was a particularly difficult time in my life. I had recently lost my job and was fully engaged in a career search. To be perfectly honest, recently is probably a misnomer. As I remember, the interview took place up in Woods Cross, which was a fair distance from my...

Discipleship—Now Is the Time

At the conclusion of April 2017 General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I did what I always do at the end of General Conference—I sat down to think about the general theme that seemed to run through the whole conference.  It was clear to...

Homeschooling Adventure Begins

My adventure in Autism took an unexpected sharp turn recently.  It became clear that my son needed to be home schooled.  That's a huge change!  Every home school mom deserves a medal — not including me because I am not doing it right yet.  But I'm trying.   You...

Are You Enjoying Your Own Spring Yet?

The air is fresh, the sun is out, there’s a light breeze that’s just the right temperature.  Greens are greener. Pinks, yellows, and reds are brighter.  It must be spring again – a time when so many things take the chance to start over.  When I saw the following...

A New Normal

When does the pain stop when your missionary leaves home?   I think everyone has a different response to their missionary leaving home. Some parents are so thankful that their child is able to serve a mission that there are only tears of grateful joy at parting....

Helping Others Get What They Want

It's 2:37am.   I did something I rarely do. I woke up when our dog woke up Anthony to go outside. (In this household, I'm the “parent” that typically sleeps through everything.) Then I couldn't go back to sleep because I started thinking about the book I was...

My Mormon Experience at the Philadelphia Baha’i Center

The Miracle

I wouldn’t really call myself a handyman. Sure, I change the furnace filter and fix the occasional plumbing problems around the house, but my know-how and expertise is somewhat limited in this area. Yet, on occasion there comes along a job that has to be done. Such...

Some Marriage Poems

Marriage It is more than a dance, this thing between us. We are learning and growing simultaneously But never exactly in sync. Our passion is subtle because it is deep. From romantic longings, our shared movement has Risen from frost and ash. Our goal of enduring love...

The Joy and Wonder of Easter

Each Easter as I study about and ponder that first Easter morning and the resurrection of Jesus Christ, I’m filled with joy and wonder.

Our imperfect bodies will be perfected.
