A Warrior sees the Divine Design

Yesterday I read talk by Elder Ronald A. Rasband entitled By Divine Design. As I read I couldn't help but think how a Warrior understands the Divine Design, embraces it, and lives it. In this talk he talked about how there are no "coincidences with God... things happen by "divine design." Now, that is not… Continue reading A Warrior sees the Divine Design

“I Will Go and Do…”

Today I have been thinking about an old scripture mastery... I think it may still be a scripture mastery, but I'm not sure because I am no longer teaching seminary.  This scripture may be the first scripture I ever memorized... way back when I was in seminary. "And it came to pass that I, Nephi,… Continue reading “I Will Go and Do…”

Satisfaction Saturday

Satisfied with letting Go at InnerFocus

For the past couple of months I have been meeting with my friend Sherry on reducing the effects of stress in my life.  It's been life changing. See...

The Gift of the Holy Ghost

This past Christmas we gave my daughter a new cell phone.  This phone can help her to keep in touch with her parents.  This phone can give her knowledge when she has a desire to search.  This phone can guide her when she needs direction.  This phone can help her to stay connected to things… Continue reading The Gift of the Holy Ghost

A Warrior is Wise

Yesterday the dear prophet and president of my church passed from this life.  For 50 year of my life, nearly all of it, this wise man has taught me much.  As I looked through a collection of quotes from him this morning, I realized that many of my "quests," my mission in life, have been… Continue reading A Warrior is Wise

The Gift of Repentance – The Parable of the Pen and Shane the Sheep

Today I gave a talk in Sacrament Meeting today.  Here it is in all it's glory... To introduce my subject I decided to write a parable... the Parable of the Pen... and Shane the Sheep (no relation to Shawn the Sheep). As inspiration for this parable I look to John chapter 10 where Jesus makes… Continue reading The Gift of Repentance – The Parable of the Pen and Shane the Sheep

A Warrior Lives for Today!

The holidays are like a race way.  Days go speeding by.  You think you may have a free day and you want to make the most of it... You find yourself thinking of the days when you would wake up and just "be."  You find yourself happy about the sunshine, singing to yourself.  You want… Continue reading A Warrior Lives for Today!

Stillness Illness

I have a serious case of "stillness illness."  It is my habit to live life in a constant state of business. Work must be done.  Children must be chauffeured.  Friends and family need our attention.  Seriously.  I live a life that is a whirlwind of activity. December is no exception.  I spend my time rushing… Continue reading Stillness Illness

Expect the Unexpected

I have been pondering prayer and receiving answers to prayers this past week. I think of the things I prayer for... greater faith, love, holiness, wisdom, discernment, God's grace, courage, patience, the joy that only God can grant along with the basic daily needs my family and I stand in need of each day... and… Continue reading Expect the Unexpected
