Mormon Texts Project
I got accepted to assist with proofing for the Mormon Texts Project! EEP!! I’m so excited! :D If you haven’t heard of it, it’s an ongoing project digitizing pre-1923 LDS books and making them available for free online. I’m so excited and honored to be a part of it! It’s extra exciting because all I really want to do with my life as far as a career is concerned is...
Never give up on anyone. And that includes not giving up on yourself.– Dieter f. Uchtdorf
I don't know what to call this post, but please...
Proverbs 14 1 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands. … 7 Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge. 8 The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way: but the folly of fools is deceit. 9 Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour. Today I am celebrating one year of...
2 Nephi 32:3 Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do.
Matthew 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
With the Thanksgiving holiday in mind, I did some scripture study on the topic of thanks. I thought I’d share some of my favorite findings with you all. Old Testament Psalms 136:2 O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever. Daniel 2:23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we...
9 Wherefore, I say unto you, that ye ought to forgive one another; for he that forgiveth not his brother his trespasses standeth condemned before the Lord; for there remaineth in him the greater sin. 10 I, the Lord, will forgive whom I will forgive, but of you it is required to forgive all men. [more] For some reason unbeknownst to me, I was very in tune with the Spirit today. It was...
Reblog: if there are any mormons out there who...
I tried to answer this post but the ask box wasn’t working. :/ However, I’m here and I’d love to answer any and all questions that anyone might have! Here’s a brief overview of our beliefs called The Articles of Faith: 1 We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. 2 We believe that men will be punished for...
I love my friends. They’re seriously some of the most amazing people… I’m so grateful that I’m surrounded by people who support my beliefs. I’ve had a few encounters that have reminded me of this lately. I was in the car with a couple of brothers (I’m a proud brother of the Alpha Zeta chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi.) on the way to a ritual at another chapter. We...
I’ve noticed that I’ve developed a very specific posture for when I pray sitting down (such as before a meal, or during church or an Institute class). I fold my arms (or occasionally clasp my hands) and close my eyes. I drop my shoulders very low and bow my head. I always uncross my legs and put my feet flat on the floor. I’ve never seen or heard this be specifically...
time on my hands
Marching band is over next week. After that I’ll literally have nothing to do but church things. That means church on Sunday, three Institute classes, and FHE. That’s not much to do in a week. So I think that at least until I find a job (hopefully super soon) I’m going to mention to the new missionaries that I’m SUPER available and want to help them with discussions. I...
Today is the fourteenth of November.
THAT MEANS IT’S BEEN SIX MONTHS SINCE I WAS BAPTIZED!! :O Where has the time gone? It feels like this was yesterday! Ben still looks especially handsome in white. I miss Elders McCarrey and Swain. (Although Swain is home now. He added me on facebook and we have good texting conversations now and then. I’m glad we’re friends. :]) The last six months have been crazy. (And the...
The Church = Community
and it means so, so very much to me. I’ve been completely out of commission with sickness all week. I suddenly got very ill last Friday night. I went to the health center twice in the next three days and I may or may not have mono and I may or may not have or have had a severe stomach virus. Ben has obviously been here and he’s been a better help than I could have asked, constantly...
