What Would You Say to the Son of Laban?

What Would You Say to the Son of Laban?

Something unusual happened to me last Sunday. Our high councilman’s wife spoke and she knocked it out of the park. It was, hands down, one of the best talks I’ve heard in a long time. She began gruesomely. Imagine she said, we were out for a run in the morning and we notice something strange in the street. Upon closer …

Elder Scott Made Me Want to Be Someone’s Jeanene

Elder Scott Made Me Want to Be Someone’s Jeanene

Once I was done madly hitting buttons on my computer and breaking the news, the first thing I thought after hearing about Elder Richard G. Scott’s passing this week was a single word. Jeanene. They were finally reunited. While deep feelings of love, respect, and admiration are evident among all of the apostles and Church leaders, there was something about …

Understanding & Preventing Suicide With a Gospel Perspective

Understanding & Preventing Suicide With a Gospel Perspective

Suicide. It’s a hard word to say. Even after sixteen years, it still feels like acid in my mouth. Before certain social situations, I practice how to say it. He died by suicide. He passed away through suicide. He lost his life to suicide. Never committed. My father wasn’t a criminal. But no matter the language I use or how …

Here’s What I’m Adding to the Topical Guide: Loneliness

Adding to the Topical Guide: Loneliness

“It was good.” In scripture, these words are used multiple times by the Father to denote His approval of the Creation. From the arrival of light and darkness, earth and sea, to the abundance of plants and animals, the majesty unfolding could likely be described in grander terms. Yet, the meaning is clear. The Plan of Salvation unfolded, the exaltation …

What a Summer With Hare Krishnas Taught Me About The Gospel

What a Summer With Hare Krishnas Taught Me About Divine Nature

I was born a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My parents were converts, and the first in their families to be married in the temple. I was baptized at the age of eight and had a typical beginning to what some would call a “Mormon upbringing.” Then my father died and my mother re-married. The tragedy of it all …

The account of Lazarus and the miraculous events surrounding his death and resurrection is beloved by Christians worldwide for its powerful witness of Christ and His compassion. However, another important principle can be found between the lines of scripture about the nature of God and what is asked of us as willing participants in this great test called life. From …

Why Millennials Aren’t Marrying (Even Within the Church)

Why Millennials Aren't Marrying (Even Within the Church)

I recently had the opportunity to attend an LDS Influencers Conference. Designed to help members of the Church with influence on the online community, numerous topics are discussed, from statistical data on recent Church campaigns to how we can better share goodness through social media. Out of everything that was shared, one statistic about marriage left a lasting impression. “Millennials …

Sorry, One Direction. I Know I’m Beautiful.

Sorry, One Direction. I Know I'm Beautiful.

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit the Payson Utah Temple. As I was driving home, I felt buoyant from the warmth of the sun and the Spirit. The only thing that marred the drive was the constant skipping of the old church CD I had playing. Figuring it was probably ok to ease back into the secular world, I …
