I’m excited to be added to the Issues of Faith column in the Peninsula Daily News! I will not copy and paste the articles, but you can read them here: Issues of Faith is a rotating column by five religious leaders on the North Olympic Peninsula.
(My response to someone self-described as “blue hair, asymmetrical nose piercings, gay, and identifies as Agnostic”) I like your writing style. I hope that you really don’t think that all “Mormons” are bad. Just like any group of people, you’ll get all kinds. I think that even though I’m a faithful church-going, (well, at leastContinue reading “Response to the blue-haired, nose-piercings, Agnostic.”
Someone asked this question yesterday, “What does it mean to bear your testimony?” I’m guessing they are not of my faith. I’ll call him Jim. Here is my reply. That is a good question Jim. As an active, practicing member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I would say that it meansContinue reading “What does it mean to “bear your testimony”?”
We were asked to sing I Believe In Christ to share with our church congregation virtually on Easter Sunday since there is a stay-at-home mandate due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Xavier was not too happy about it, but for the very first take, he did great. I would have re-recorded it once I saw thatContinue reading “I Believe in Christ”
This video took way longer than it should have. Back in the October 2014 General Conference, Elder Neil L. Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, invited everyone to consider recording Joseph Smith’s account of the First Vision in our own words.

I love Vocal Point and for years I thought it would be fun to do a skit to this number “Primarily Vocal Point” (A cappella Tribute to Children’s Songbook Primary Songs). My only regretContinue reading “Ward Christmas Variety Show”
Newly released song where I sing in French, the primary song I Am A Child Of God. I think that I will make a video of this in the future. Je Suis Enfant De Dieu
As I look through my pictures from my mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in France, each picture seems to have a story. I served from May 1991 to May 1993. I had so many amazing experiences. Sometimes you don’t realize that something significant is happening when you are right inContinue reading “Tracting in La Rochelle France”
My series of testimonies of the Book of Mormon continues with another testimony of a family member. As I had said in the previous blog post, some of my family members had written down their testimonies of the Book of Mormon while I was a missionary in France. These testimonies were given to me, IContinue reading “Testimonies of the Book of Mormon – Chantel”
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. We quickly grew to love these children, aging from toddlers to teenagers preparing to go to college.
