There are theories, ideas, and evidences, but each person puts their faith in one of those theories to support the beliefs they want to … More I believe in science.
When I was a kid, we got to spend a week during the summer with our grandparents in St. Louis. It was one of the highlights of our year. Usually when the time was over and we were on our way home, they would drive us the 7 hours home to Cincinnati. We were young … More Lifesavers
Well, I almost can’t believe I am writing this. I was so relieved last week about my throat, and felt like God had opened a door to the hallway of physical misery I had been trapped in for 7 months.

I choose Thanksgiving.

On Sunday, I was getting ready for church, and had the thought that maybe I should ask to be prayed over with oil. It was sacrament Sunday. I was reasoning with myself in my mind.

I made a mistake a few Sundays ago. It was our one Sunday per month when we take the bread and wine and share testimonies and prayer.
