My Initial Review of A Course In Miracles…

I had to take time off my regular schedule to read A Course in Miracles. Let me explain how I view my entries in this blog. I tend to be very influenced by what I read when it resonates with me and it comes out in my writing and in my conversation and I do not want to have anything out there that I … Read More My Initial Review of A Course In Miracles…

Going the Extra Mile

I live by the rule of the extra mile. I believe that you must do this as a disciple of Christ. It keeps you in a non-obligatory state to mankind which is the illusion and free to listen to the promptings of the Holy Ghost and serve the true and living God. (See Matthew 5:41 and 3 Nephi 12:41) Matthew 5:41. And whosoever shall … Read More Going the Extra Mile

Goals, Don’t Be Afraid of Them…Do Not Hide From This Fountain of Life

The failure to achieve goals should not be a deterrent for creating and pursuing them. To fail is only to integrate the witness of the power of God and that all things come through and by him. Goals give us focus and focus is the beginning of developing the laser faith that allows all things to be. Goals keep our eyes on ourselves and … Read More Goals, Don’t Be Afraid of Them…Do Not Hide From This Fountain of Life

Keep the Ultimate Destination in Your Sights

I had the opportunity to look at a business opportunity recently. It sounded promising and I was in hopes that it would be something that I could do. One of the key things that the preliminary introduction to the company included was for you to make a list of six things that you would do or want in your life if money were no … Read More Keep the Ultimate Destination in Your Sights

The Evolution of Freedom

It is one thing to obtain freedom for oneself and quite another to live free among people. Especially people with varying capacities and understandings of freedom. I have never been more grateful for the standard works (the scriptures) in my life than I am now because without them I would be so lost. Even though I have read them over and over they are … Read More The Evolution of Freedom

Sustaining Others While Honoring Your Own Witness…and a Caution About Meditation

A few days ago I wrote this on my description for my “Courage To Be God’s Daughter” program on blog talk radio: “I have been to the temple recently and seen the new film. The Spirit continues to pour out his enlightenment and I am beginning to feel that I must hold back on what I am learning as I read and share my … Read More Sustaining Others While Honoring Your Own Witness…and a Caution About Meditation

Freedom…Family…Church…

Freedom begins with me living true to the principle of freedom and this begins with me learning to trust my own inner voice in any given matter. This is not something that is easily done or allowed. Following the commandments of God gives us confidence in ourselves to be able to trust that we will do the right and be true to who we … Read More Freedom…Family…Church…

Third Week In A Row and Counting….will I be able to stand the test?…

Last week when I was trying to sort out my relationship with the people who were trying to decide what was freedom of speech for me and others in our congregation I kept thinking of “I Am A Child Of God” and I wrote this poem to follow its beat to remind me how grateful I am for all people and circumstances in this … Read More Third Week In A Row and Counting….will I be able to stand the test?…

Family Continued… We Are Here To Work It Out And Testify of Christ

Functionality in this earthly realm is not the ultimate state that the human being is able to achieve. To stop there in the place of “comfort” or lack of “stress” is a sad state of affairs. We were sent here to do great things in the name of the God who sent us, even as Christ was. Even more sad are those who live … Read More Family Continued… We Are Here To Work It Out And Testify of Christ

Family…Just The Beginning

Family statistics or circumstances do not need to define us. Neither does our personal history need to define us before God, even though it may to the world. Some of what you will see here may not be easy to read. Remember they are just circumstances in a life. I do not need to claim my circumstances as my identity as a child of … Read More Family…Just The Beginning

Everything Begins With Our Thoughts And We Will Be Held Accountable For Them

Satan will tempt you with the lusts of the body to keep you from the work you were called to do, which is to testify of Jesus Christ and of God’s love for mankind. Whether those temptations are physically acted on or just allowed to set up housekeeping in the corridors of your mind, it is dangerous, wrong, a sin, and offensive to God. … Read More Everything Begins With Our Thoughts And We Will Be Held Accountable For Them

Meditation Update (#2)

I want to comment about this incredible journey. These are things that I have been observing, some are obvious to me and some are more subtle: Meditation puts me in a neutral state emotionally so that I become the observer. Meditation seems to make me more autonomous (heaven help me, chuckle). I am able to follow through on those things that are important to … Read More Meditation Update (#2)
