Top 12 Latter-Day Saints Podcasts – Ep. 33

Welcome, everybody! As usual, I usual, I am recording from Port Angeles, Washington, which is not in the Rocky Mountains as the Podcast name might imply!  I started this blog called Rocky Mountain Sunshine while living in Utah, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, but we moved to Port Angeles, Washington, which still hasContinue reading “Top 12 Latter-Day Saints Podcasts – Ep. 33”

I can do better

I feel that I can do better in recording spiritual experiences.  I’ve felt a bit of writer’s block since the pandemic started. I think that it might be because of the many things weighing on my mind; from the health of my mother who lives in Utah and who’s had some health challenges during theContinue reading “I can do better”

Special day of prayer and fasting

I submitted this to the Peninsula Daily News but I guess they decided not to publish, so I thought I’d share it here. I’m 49 years old. In my lifetime, the closest thing that I can relate to today’s COVID-19 pandemic, is 9-11. The world as we knew it had changed. The loss of lifeContinue reading “Special day of prayer and fasting”

The Perilous Times of COVID-19

It sure seems like we are living in the last days.  A short time ago I had not heard of the coronavirus or COVID-19 as it is now called. We weren’t thinking of global pandemics. We were thinking about what to do for our 25th anniversary. A cruise? A trip whale watching? A getaway toContinue reading “The Perilous Times of COVID-19”

Making the most of the moment

Over the past few weeks I have been digitizing old home movies that are on VHS tapes. We haven’t owned a VCR for several years. Every now and then I’ve come across these VHS tapes and I’ve wanted to preserve them and show them to our kids, some of whom are now adults. The processContinue reading “Making the most of the moment”

Je Suis Enfant De Dieu

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    

Hurrah for Israel

I’m a regular listener to the Latter-day Lives podcast. I’ve blogged about it before and I’ve even been a guest before.  I had lunch with the creator and host Shawn Rapier, a dear friend, when he told me out of the blue one day that he was going to start a podcast.  I thought itContinue reading “Hurrah for Israel”

Notre Dame, Easter and the hope of resurrection

We’ve all received shocking news. Yesterday seeing images of Notre Dame in Paris with flames shooting out of the roof was shocking. This morning I received a phone call notifying me that someone very dear to me had passed away.  I can imagine how shocking the news might have been when Mary came to theContinue reading “Notre Dame, Easter and the hope of resurrection”

Testimonies of the Book of Mormon – Heather

This is the final post of the series of the testimonies of some of my family members of The Book of Mormon. They had written these testimonies of the Book of Mormon while I was a missionary in France. They were then mailed to me, I translated them into French, hand-wrote them in the frontContinue reading “Testimonies of the Book of Mormon – Heather”
