I have often said I am in a constant state of practice. That’s just because I need lots and lots of practice. The comforting takeaway from Elder Uchtdorf’s talk is I am not alone. We all need practice time.Continue reading

As it often happens, there is a subtle lesson in life in which the meaning or significance has become tainted or lost. We no longer recognize the symbolism. Instead, it has become largely misunderstood. I’m referring to a bride taking the name of her husband at marriage and becoming known under his family tree. Continue reading

There is always that question of why. Why am I doing this? At least for me that question needs to be answered on a fairly regular basis. A couple of months ago when spring finally started making its way with warm weather I asked that very same question as I headed into church. Why am I going to church today? It is so nice out! Elder Wakolo answers that question. Here’s the why. Continue reading

If God is a perfect being and one who lives in an orderly and perfect kingdom, wouldn’t you think the ability to use His power would require the same kind of order?

There are a few reasons why I attend church every Sunday. Don’t get me wrong – it is not an easy thing for somebody with social anxiety to attend 3 hours of something totally out of my comfort zone. But I do. The most important reason is explained in the following link.
Abraham said to Isaac,
“Son, come with me.
It is time to sacrifice
come learn and see.”
Isaac walked with Abraham,
and saw his father shed a tear.
Finally he asked softly ,
“Why did we come here?”
Abraham taught Isaac,
“Son, the Lord is leading me
we made a covenant
and I am not sure how it will be.
Right now, I am lost
I cannot see the end
but I trust the Lord
because he hears me again and again.
This has caused sleepless nights
filled with prayer and fret.
All I know is it will work out
but I do not know how, quite yet.
I love you son,
always know I love you
this thing I have been asked
is the hardest I will ever do.
I do not know how but I believe
a miracle is in store
because the Lord keeps his promises
Do you trust me son?
Trust in me like I trust the Lord
there are blessings
that are in store.”
Isaac replied to Abraham,
“I am not sure I can see
but I trust in you
and I know this must be.”
Abraham offered Isaac,
but an angel stopped his hand.
The lesson was taught
so all could understand.
The lesson of Abraham and Isaac:
Trust in the covenants you make
because the Lord always does, too.
And know there is one who took your place
and made the sacrifice for you.
