First of all, I like this title. It’s almost a warning, isn’t it? Things are going to get tough so you better be checking your foundation.Continue reading
Really it’s pretty simple. The object and design of the Book of Mormon is to teach us about Christ. The whole book points us to and focuses on Jesus Christ and His Atonement. Once we gain that knowledge, what are we going to do with it? Change for the better to align ourselves with Christ?Continue reading
The thing I noticed about our time is you gotta know the why. As I have stated before, gone are the days of luxury, scenic routes to testimony. You have to know the what and the why or your testimony will crumble like an elaborate sand castle.Continue reading
