Talk - Jan 22
I spoke in Church this week. It was my first talk to my new single adult ward, and the first I've given in almost 6 years. I thought I'd share. :) <<< "And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, And had suffered many things of many physi...

Will You Trust God?
Sometimes it's disheartening to look out at the world and see so many casualties. So many people who, because of whatever reason, have decided to stop fighting. I get it. I get that it's hard to be alone, that culture doesn't accept me, that often it takes ...

It's amazing how polar my life still is. A few days ago I felt like the world was crashing down around me... but today I feel like everything is... yes... awesome. The weather is cold, and awesome. The sky is awesome. The food I ate for breakfast this morni...
