So stinking shiny...

Saw this in the +BYU HFAC last night. This artist seriously knows how to catch my attention. Just make it sparkly and people can't help but stare!

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 have seen a LOT of YouTube videos in my time. But rarely can such brilliance, creativity, and quality all be found in one.

They have quite a track record, too. Their channel is definitely worth a look and (at least in my case) a subscription. 
This video has to be the pinnacle of parody covers. The costumes, the editing, and honestly, the lyrics! I'm amazed how much of the story they squeeze into this ridiculously entertaining parody. Te...

Thorny still

You can make a really interesting picture out of just about anything. The best way to find good shots is to just go for a walk. Keep your eyes open. See what you can see.

In addition to fun pictures, you can find symbols in many aspects of everyday life. Even in a simple little bush.

What I saw, what I thought -->

+Ben Arkell I did use +Canva. I figured if I was going to recommend it to other people I should probably put it to the test! It's really easy to use.

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.

+Jimmy Hales Dude, this guy is awesome. Please go try it out! You have to get an appointment on his website, but it's totally worth it.

He can talk about anything with you from the local music scene to politics and philosophy. Way chill, way quality. Awesome.

Simple statements, simple answers, simple beliefs
Video - Bono: Who is Jesus?

Faith is action, and faith in Jesus Christ leads people to do good. Bono's simple answers are profound. They inspired me.

Watch the video:

Thanks to Austin Vach for sharing this video today. Bono's simple, pure faith in Jesus Christ provides a great example to me. He illuminates an exciting and core truth about prayer. [blockquote sou...

Temple Blossoms

A symbol of the exquisite beauty and tragic shortness of life, these blossoms remind me to focus on that which is most important. 

During a conference talk yesterday, I was reminded that a tornado (or other disaster) shows the value of personal possessions in minutes. I should focus on eternal things such as love, compassion, and service.

More pictures from Temple Square gardens this week:

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:

  • Current Events
  • Google, Apple, Facebook

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.
