I listened quietly. That’s what I do. I am a quiet observer.
His complaint was valid, I’ll give him that.
I listened to a home teacher talk about his assigned single sister to minister to. She owned her own home but was “needy” in that she always asked him to help with fix-it chores. Perhaps he was just venting because he was talking to a family friend. The problem though is that I also was there. And I related to the single sister’s situation. Continue reading
We are told
to love God and our fellow man.
Is that goal

I started this little blog seven years ago this month. For seven years I’ve posted little blurbs and thoughts and highly suspected my posts were overlooked. I just haven’t found a passion or interest to focus on so my writing is random and broad.

In essence, dad told my brother it’s about the people. Continue reading

In the end (and we are nowhere near the end of discussing this topic), the most compelling example anyone can give is of the Savior Himself. Look to Jesus, He will show you the way on how to minister. He is, of course, the perfect minister. Continue reading
