Some random thoughts…Consider NOW and What It Means To You…

Between life and prayer in general, combined with deep meditation and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique or Tapping) I find myself constantly in flux and growing in understanding. I know that a real principle of growth is the sharing of what we are learning or have witness of in this moment of now so here is where I have been recently: Quantum physics says…that an … Read More Some random thoughts…Consider NOW and What It Means To You…

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

When Is It Okay To Teach?

I had an interesting question posed recently. When is the time that you begin to teach? When have you learned enough in Heavenly Father’s plan that you are able to teach? May I suggest it is when you desire to continue to truly learn. A principle in the gospel is that what you have will be added unto as you exercise what you have … Read More When Is It Okay To Teach?

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…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

The Privileged Will Tend To Be More Selfish and Consider It Their Due

That is why is is so imperative that we recognize our total dependence on God and that all else is circumstantial.

Freedom Means Knowing You Will Be Misjudged And You Have To “Chill”

If you are going to be free you are going to need to think for yourself and this is not something that is accepted in society. Even the “outliers” tend to have a group that they interact within and if you are going to be free you need to be autonomous or self sustaining. You need to understand that you will be misjudged, envied, … Read More Freedom Means Knowing You Will Be Misjudged And You Have To “Chill”

Organizaional Religion Should Not Take Your Personal Values Away

I re-read a statement in a book on leadership that I read a couple months ago. “When someone joins an organization, that organization’s values eventually take precedence over the individuals values.” I believe that this is why people are so afraid of organized religion and it is not found in the gospel of Jesus Christ…it may be found in the culture of the church … Read More Organizaional Religion Should Not Take Your Personal Values Away
