Picture of the day

I found it tricky to deal with three layers--the flowers, the building, and the sky. I'm used to working only with two (say, an object and the sky). Lots to be desired, but a fun experiment.

Brooding Building

I just love the way this building looks when it gets overcast! What's your favorite building or landmark near where you work?

A light within Because of Him

The other night I was out walking with a friend when we came upon these delightful tree blossoms. The image struck me as a perfect way to illustrate how my faith in Christ fills me with an enduring sense of optimism.

Hope - Because of Him

The future is brighter than the past because of the hope I receive through Jesus Christ. He has promised to bless and care for those who love him, and to redeem and justify us when we return to him after mistakes.

I had heard that this was in the works, but I'm quite impressed that it actually became a reality. Here's to a happy Easter for believers everywhere! 

Here's what the masthead on YouTube looks like right now. The Church has arranged for the #BecauseofHim video to be featured on the masthead space on YouTube’s homepage, where it is expected to be seen by over 100 million people. 

At, you can read the #Easter story, learn more about the teachings of #JesusChrist, and watch the new 3-minute video that depicts the importance of the Resurrection of #Jesus compared with various historical events.  #Christian

Impressive ad buy.

Almost as brilliant as buying full page ads in BoM musical playbills. :-)

Enjoy your holiday.

A letter to someone I've wronged

I don’t know where you are or how you’re doing. It’s been some time since I last saw you. We didn’t part on the best of terms. We didn’t meet in the best of circumstances, either...

Read the rest -->

This is a real letter I wrote to a real individual. This letter is today's addition to the #becauseofhim  post I've created to commemorate Easter and the second chances I've been given thanks to Jesus Christ.

Send me an article or post you've written for #becauseofhim  and I will link to it in my post.

Video - Because of Him
A celebration of second chances

Over the week leading up to Easter, I'll be updating this post with additional thoughts about second chances, hope, and renewal, including some personal stories. I owe my sense of optimism, my success at work, and the richness of my deepest relationships to Jesus Christ. Whether or not you believe in Him, I know the ideas that He represents have helped you achieve your successes, conquer your challenges, and become who you are today. Ideas of hope, change, enlightenment, and progress. 

Take care, my friends, and enjoy the beautiful video!

I love the internet! Not because it's a great place to watch cat videos (that doesn't hurt), but because I believe it plays the most vital role in shaping our future. People using the internet and technology to inspire, bless, teach, and encourage others--that's what excites me! You can expect me to share and engage about:
  • Language Industry
  • Current Events
  • Google, Apple, Facebook
  • Faith
  • Photography
  • The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons)
I work as a localization engineer for +The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which means I get to help spread uplifting, positive messages around the world in all kinds of languages and through all kinds of channels. 

I also love photography. I take almost all my photographs on a mobile phone. Here are some of my most popular images:
The most important part of Google+ for me is the experience of meeting, connecting with, and collaborating with other creative, passionate, and kind people. If you add me to your circles, please reach out and say hello! I'll be pleased to meet you.

I keep a personal blog called Websmith, and I recently began to contribute to Mormon Life Hacker.

LinkedIn has the resume.

I like it because it's a reasonably priced breakfast close to work. I had the egg and veggie sandwich, which is basically a small veggie omelet on toasted bread. Kept me full until lunch. Service wasn't great, but I think that is because some new people were being trained. Great atmosphere.

It was decent, but nothing to write home about. The Gyro meat was mediocre (not a lot of flavor). The yogurt sauce was good, though. Service was fast and we enjoyed sitting at the tables outside under some shade trees. If you are a Greek food connoisseur, you will likely not love this place. If you just like grabbing the occasional Greek bite to eat, it might be a good fit.

Let's be clear, this is a great place to grab a burger and fries. That said, I am looking for a place that has burgers with real strength, and this place doesn't quite make it into that category. I got the bacon western cheeseburger, and, though tasty, it was a bit dry and lacked really great flavor. The fries, on the other hand, were divine. Highly recommend. And the blackberry shake was very good. The place has a nice "mom and pop" feel to it, and they give you a little buzzer that goes off when your order is ready, making for a great customer service experience.

Don't go here if you're in a hurry, but do go here if you're looking for a relaxing meal in a great atmosphere. Food was great...possibly the best Chinese I've had in Provo. And how can you go wrong with boba? I don't speak Chinese, but if I did, I would have enjoyed chatting with the owners. One is Taiwanese and one is American. Super friendly, which made the atmosphere that much better.

The custard is delicious, and I love that they have a flavor of the day (so far I've seen hazelnut and cookie dough). The manager was very friendly and fun in a non-annoying way, making the visit a pleasant experience that was about more than just the custard.

Ate here recently for the first time, and I will definitely be coming back. I had the massaman curry, and it was delicious. Not all Thai places have that dish, which is one reason this is a repeat destination for me. Service was prompt and efficient despite the fact that the place was pretty crowded. There is a nice outside dining area which looked delightful, but was all full.
