Working on Being a Saint

Most people would say I'm "Mormon."  Although, being given the title of "Mormon" isn't an insult, it does not truly represent my faith and conviction.   Because my church believes in the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ that is a collections of writings and testimonies of ancient prophets comparable to the Bible and… Continue reading Working on Being a Saint


#bethelight – Day 174 and 175

Wow.... I was so busy yesterday.  I went to the chiropractor, chatted with good friends, went to the Farmer's Market and bought a few plants to put in my garden and a couple veggies.  The farmers at the Farmer''s Market were so cool.  When I bought some leeks and lettuce I told the farmer to… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 174 and 175
