Seeking Zion #1 – Thanksgiving, 2015

I spent Thanksgiving this week with a group of people who, a year ago, I had barely heard of – and that only through Facebook connections – and had not ever met. My friend, Brian Beckle, blessed the feast and in doing so compared our gathering with that of the pilgrims at the feast that […]

Building Bridges – A Letter to Catherine

There has been some discussion lately in the social media circles that I follow about building bridges.  These are bridges that would help bridge the gaps between “free range” Mormons (that’s such a great name, Charlotte) and traditional Mormons, and between Mormons and Protestant, Catholic, Evangelical Christians.  I don’t think it’s an accident that such […]

D&C 132…Marriage, Polygamy, The Sealing Power, and the New and Everlasting Covenant

And he said unto his servant: When I will; go ye straightway, and do all things whatsoever I have commanded you; And this shall be my seal and blessing upon you—a faithful and wise steward in the midst of mine house, a ruler in my kingdom.

To the Valley View 9th Ward – a Love Story #2

To the Valley View 9th Ward – a Love Story #2

I saw Katy Robbins hobbling across the street yesterday afternoon.  We had just parked our new home – cleverly disguised as a 33’ fifth wheel – on Colt Haven circle, where it is to stay for two weeks before we take it into the wilds of Boundary County, Idaho.  She, in turn, was walking off […]

Come Unto Me #4 – I Choose You!

It sat there on the front seat of the pick-up truck, that angelic feminine face staring up at me with those huge brown eyes beneath the ethereal halo of light.  We were saying good-bye to family and friend on a Sunday evening when I saw it.  I said, “What’s that book?”  “Oh, it’s called the […]
