Not Enough Words
Saying I like to talk is an understatement.  I am a regular Chatty Cathy when it comes to a good friend, comfortable chair, and interesting conversations.  A good talk is one of my favorite things on earth, and finding the right words to express an idea is ...

well... shit.
I am superstitious.  It's not something I talk about often because 1) it's crazy and 2) something bad might happen if I talk about being superstitious. Rewind my life to November of 2015, I got a job with the Department of Health.  After a long run of unemp...

It's been a rough week for Mormons.  Some Mormons are hurt; some are happy; some are indignant, and some are just wondering what the hell is happening. I'm sad.  I'm worried about my friends, and I am worried about my church. I want to believe that this mes...

My Favorite Prophet
Elijah is my favorite prophet.  He wins for all books of scripture and even the modern era.  I know we aren't supposed to have a favorite prophet.  I was reminded of this a few weeks ago in a church meeting when I answered the teacher's inquiry about favori...
