Mountain of the Lord

This picture is of the Jordan River Temple early this morning. I remember going to the open house with my grandmother after it was built in 1981. I'm always amazed at the faithful elderly at the temple as workers and patrons who are there in the early hours of the morning and late into the... Continue Reading →

Signs and wonders

I recently read 3 Nephi 1, in the Book of Mormon. This took place right before Jesus Christ was born.

Two years ago, my daughter Maggie and I went on a humanitarian trip of sorts with a charity called A Child's Hope Foundation.  We traveled down to the Buena Vida Orphanage, in Baja, Mexico to work on the orphanage that they were building.

Une soirée musicale

I love the music and the message, and it reminds me of Christmas, serving in France, listening to this tape. I hope you enjoy it. There are probably some French mistakes. If you want to message...

This is hydrocephalus

I'm a land lover. I am not crazy about flying. I like the rubber on the pavement and my feet on the ground. Up here in the Olympic Peninsula, they have these things called ferries. Not the kind you see in Fablehaven with magical powers, but the kind which float on water. They are large... Continue Reading →
