Lifting the Poor Wayfaring Men of Grief

As we were leaving a Walmart parking lot yesterday, I rolled down my car window and gave a dollar to a homeless man on the corner. He grabbed my hand and genuinely thanked me for the dollar, but asked if I had anything for a headache. It was so hot outside. No wonder he had… Continue reading Lifting the Poor Wayfaring Men of Grief

Happy Blog-versary! It's crazy that I have been writing this blog, Resigning as the General Manger of the Universe, here on WordPress, for ONE YEAR!  The year has gone by fast!  I guess it's true... time flies when you are having fun.

Be Still… A Few Thoughts on Meditation

I have made a new discovery for myself.  I have been focusing on spiritually grounding myself with daily scripture study and prayer.  Sadly, my commitment to my scripture study, and most frequently, prayer is irregular at best.  Don't get me wrong.  I am much better at these two practices than I used to be and… Continue reading Be Still… A Few Thoughts on Meditation

Satisfied with Temple Worship

I had the opportunity to attend the temple.  This time, as I drove up to the parking lot, my heart was filled with joy and whispered, "I am home."  I have always thought of the temple as "home."  It is a symbol of peace in a chaotic world. "The moment we step into the house… Continue reading Satisfied with Temple Worship

Warrior Wednesday

Interdependent Warrior Women

Lately I've been hearing so much banter with people adamant about their person freedom and individuality.  I get it.  It's important.  However, I believe freedom cannot come at the expense of everyone else.  No one gets their freedom because of anything they do for themselves.  We enjoy freedom because of the collective efforts of people… Continue reading Interdependent Warrior Women

Refining Moments

I've been pondering an idea for a couple of days... If we will be humble, the Lord will refine us. I am not being refined in some dramatic fashion.  It's on a small scale.  No Saul/Paul or Alma experiences happening here.  It's more like a little every day.  And frankly, though it is painful in… Continue reading Refining Moments

I Believe

A few weeks ago I was helping a student pick a song for an audition for an upcoming musical at school.  As I glanced through the many musical theatre anthologies, my eye fell on the song "I Believe" from The Book of Mormon, the Musical.   So many of my friends love this musical.  To be… Continue reading I Believe

Journey to Be a Goodly Parent

Today I was studying 1 Nephi (a book I am very familiar with as I have read it multiple times).  I was impressed with Nephi saying he was the son of "goodly parents."  What made them "goodly?" I looked up "goodly" in the dictionary.  Here are a few of the definitions I found: Of good… Continue reading Journey to Be a Goodly Parent

Enlisting in the Battalion

The discussion this week at church was all about how we, as adults, can help strengthen the youth around us.  As I listened, the thought came to me that we are strength all youth, not just church youth.  Youth are under a massive, strategic attack.  The adversary would like them to lose their identity, forget… Continue reading Enlisting in the Battalion

Ministering Hands

It seems that the subject of most meetings at church these past weeks has been "ministering."  There have been many great lessons and talks on the subject of ministering.  However, one of the greatest lessons of ministering I have learned to day comes from my grand-daughter, a four year old with the heart of a… Continue reading Ministering Hands
