I suppose I should introduce myself as I’ve found context helps understanding.
I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as the Mormons. I have a satisfying, happy life, and I attribute that to my faith. Everything that is valuable to me has come through the gospel of Jesus Christ which was restored in its fullness through the Prophet Joseph Smith. I have been married for 8 years to my sweetheart who I met while we were students at Utah State University. Because of the gospel, I know our marriage is eternally sealed, and will therefore not end at death. With eternity on our minds, divorce is not, especially when we aren’t exactly seeing things eye to eye. We are the parents of three cute children. Because of the gospel, I know that these little ones, along with any others we may have, will be our children forever. Like Abraham, ours is the promise of an endless posterity as numberless as the stars in the heaven. With eternity on our minds we attempt to raise these children in love and righteousness, although it may not always look that way when battling toddleritis. My goal with this blog is to share my happiness. I want to write posts on thoughts I have about life and the gospel. My hope is that these posts will be a blessing. I have no desire for debate or contention, although I might post on sensitive topics. Differing opinions are welcomed when respectfully expressed, and I will try to post and respond in kind. But most of the time this disclaimer shouldn’t be necessary as I will not seek out controversy. I just want to share what makes me happy.
The thoughts and opinions I express are mine, and do not represent the official view of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
