Gotta Vent.

This is about the voting in CA, so if you’re tired of the subject, sorry. But I’ve got to get this off my chest.

If you’ve looked around my site or have read for awhile, you know I’m LDS (Mormon). And the Mormons have gotten a lot of publicity in CA for their stance on […]

A Conference Talk.

During LDS church General Conference yesterday, one of the men who spoke said something I really liked. As a kid, he came home from from a football game; his team lost and he was upset. He told his mom, looking for sympathy, and she told him, “Come what may, and love it.”

Over the years […]

Reminder…Conference is Coming!

Hello, all my fellow LDS-ers. Just a reminder that General Conference is coming up in 2 weeks!

We will be enjoying Conference from the comfort of our home on the BYU channel on tv instead of online like years past. Yay! I really do love conference…it’s such a fantastic spiritual boost. Even our Gab (she’s […]

YouTube Testimonies?

I recently ran across this post and found it very thought-invoking.

There’s so many false things “out there,” we (as LDS people) have been asked (if we want to and feel compelled to do so) to correct these things and to share our beliefs with others. I’m not a preachy-type…at all…really….ever. But I do have […]

New Blog Site!

I signed up to get on a LDS/Mormon blog site and thought I’d share it!

It’s for LDS-themed blogs or general/political/whatever else blogs written by LDS members. It’s really neat to see others’ POV and what they think of life in these latter days.

“By Their Fruits…”

This is one of the great things about my church. Salt Lake is already sending help in to the Gulf Coast, even before the hurricane hits.

Most people don’t know it because the church doesn’t announce it to the public. We don’t say, “Hey, look at us! We’re sending trucks in!” It happens quietly….without fanfare….without […]

Mormons and Our Horns Story

Those that are LDS know this story, or at least the person involved. For those who do not, J. Golden Kimball was one of the leaders in his time. He was known as the “Swearing Apostle” because he was quite colorful with his language.

“Uncle Golden” stories have become a type of folklore for members […]

Polygamy from a Mormon’s POV

Back in the early days of the LDS church, yes, polygamy was practiced. It started because many men were killed in massacres and fighting and the women and children left behind needed care. Then it continued on, and was declared official in Utah in 1852 by Brigham Young. Years later, when Utah was trying to […]

A Talk in Church

I heard a very interesting talk in church yesterday. Probably one of the best I’ve heard in awhile.

This older man spoke of when he was young and had bought a lifetime supply of his favorite shaving cream when it was on sale once. He knew he wanted it to last as long as possible, […]
