Here’s the thing. We are on Heavenly Father’s timetable. He knows the schedule. We are on schedule. Trust in this fact. I don’t know about you but this helps me to have peace despite our current climate.Continue reading

In the midst of the 2020 protests and riots, my small Wyoming community held an interfaith prayer vigil in a local park. Several preachers and pastors spoke, church choirs sang, the mayor and town police chief each spoke. It was a proactive attempt to unite our community and recognize God’s hand is needed to achieve such goals. It was a lovely effort but the greatest lesson I received that night came from a personal observation that had nothing to do with what was preached or pleaded. It came from watching a little girl play on the playground equipment while waiting for her family attending the vigil.Continue reading

Here’s a personal observation: confidence is key. If you exhibit confidence (note I did not say if you HAVE confidence) people will listen and follow you. You can tell them a fabricated story but if you say it with confidence (take out hedge words and sounds) people will believe; if you walk with confidence people will follow (right off a cliff perhaps). Knowledge is not the key, confidence is. Photo taken in southwest Wyoming.Continue reading

No, it is not the first time a non-general authority or one serving in a general leadership has spoken in conference. But it’s been awhile. Youth speakers in General Conference, how about that?Continue reading
First of all, I just made that title up. As far as I know, it is not a real thing. It’s more a personal observation.
I find it rather annoying when someone corrects me. Especially when it is done without solicitation. I suppose I am not humble enough to receive correction. But here’s the kicker, I am also a corrector. I have corrected people and I just want to put it out there that I’m sorry. But let me try and explain the why so maybe you will have some mercy upon us correctors.Continue reading
