My Mormon Experience at a Jewish Passover Seder

“It is helpful to have new people at a Seder. It reminds us to explain things and to be more thoughtful in what we are doing.” ~Natalie Katz, my hostess for Passover Seder   As a Mormon, I honor those of the Jewish faith. I admire their history and the tenements...

Man Up

This has been amazing. I trod a path this week that I have anticipated yet dreaded my whole life. More on that later. One thing I have learned through the process—the importance of good examples.   We all have them. Stalwart, brave, and courageous men who provide...

Church Reactivation and Social Media

My generation was all about privacy. With the advent of social media, things have drastically changed. Many people, particularly those who have grown up with social media, are putting their lives totally on public display.   This brings transparency to...

It’s Inside Me

I loved Disney's recent film, Moana. I liked it for many reasons, some of which include a fairly accurate depiction of Polynesian culture, great music, a strong female character, no evil patriarchy, no romantic love story (it wasn't noticed that it was missing, nor...

Eggsellent Easter Missionary Package

Every year, our family has a traditional Easter egg hunt with a twist. The plastic eggs when opened each contain a small token reminding us of some aspect of Jesus Christ’s agony in Gethsemane, His death on the cross, and His miraculous overcoming of death.  ...

One By One

Perhaps this will be the most significant article I will ever write…perhaps.   I think we all feel like our parents’ favorite. I hope you do. Everyone deserves to be cherished and loved. Each one of us is worthy of such devotion.   It has been my good...

Blessings of Scripture Study

Over the past few years the entertainment world has been very confusing.  What some critics (ie. movies/books) have exalted as great works in entertainment seemed undeniably repulsive or violent to any God-fearing person. Then those books and movies which were so...

Happily Ever After

I wish everyone could have their dreams come true early on in their life.  That was my luck or blessing.  I found myself in the home of my dreams with the husband of my dreams and three or four children.  I had “made it” before age 25.  Life should have been grand.  I...

Watch, Look, See, Experience More!

Excited for an experience, there I was, crazy early last Thursday morning, bobbing in the sea patiently waiting for dolphins.   We'd all met at 5:45am, loaded up the cars with excited, and some anxious, youth and adults to go searching for dolphins. As the sun...

Listen

When I was a young man, I spent many hours driving with my dad between our home in Castle Valley and the small town of Moab 25-miles-away, where I went to school. In the privacy of the cab of that old truck, I could bring up the heart-wrenching challenges of youth...

The Gift of Living Prophets

As a member of the LDS church, we are blessed and privileged to hear the words of our loving and living prophet twice a year.  This is called General Conference.  When I was a wee lass, we watched it on the television, and I admit, I thought it was boring!  But now...

The Joyful Gospel

I recently attended a stake conference (meeting of several local congregations in a geographical district) which kept me on the edge of my seat for the entire meeting. This article is the product of that enlightening, delightful, and joyful conference.   The...

Moments of Choice

These moments are ones I cherish.   Without irony or Abuse of the word; The ones where the house smells of apple And is vacuumed.   All of the children are home and I am in the Kitchen, cooking dinner, hearing: Laughter from outside, Tutoring math problems...

A Tool With Greater Purpose

“My companion is the biggest tool I’ve ever known!”   My overly loud laugh rang out with our congregation’s as we processed through this missionary’s double meaning, when he finished his thought, “He’s a tool in the Lord’s hands!” All of us listened as he shared...
