Love, Oh, What Love

Love, Oh, What Love

Happy Valentine's Day — the "day of love." Although many probably roll their eyes at this made-up holiday that seems to only benefit card stores, florists, and candy shops, love is arguably the most important thing in our lives. Yes, we need food, clothing, and shelter, but love is that transcending value that is vitally important to us, both naturally and spiritually.

Love takes several forms, including romantic love, brotherly/friendship-type love of mankind, and love of family. Have you ever thought about living without love, any kind of it? What would life be like?

Pay It Forward Day Is April 28

Pay It Forward Day Is April 28

One Friday morning, after a long, challenging week, I ordered a cup of coffee at a drive-through. When I attempted to pay, the cashier said, “The car in front of you took care of it.” Tears came to my eyes. I can’t tell you how much of a boost (better than caffeine) that was for me. This kind gesture lifted my spirits immensely and carried me through the day.

So Unworthy, So Blessed

So Unworthy, So Blessed

Thirty-four years have passed since the signs of the birth of the Son of God, Jesus Christ: a new star in the sky and the day and the night passed as one with no darkness. The joy, the belief in Christ and repentance swept the land. Man, however, is quick to return to his sin.

The great and terrible day of the crucifixion of Christ has finally passed with only the more righteous having been spared. The tempests, quakings, whirlwinds, lightnings and thunderings, rocks being rent in twain, the mountains sinking and the valleys raising up brought fear even into the hearts of the righteous. Even they mourned, feared, and had regrets ... I know for I am one of them.

A Victorious Visit

A Victorious Visit

Thirty-three years ago, almost to the day, I, Nephi, wrote to you about the wonderful events that occurred to mark the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Today I'm here to tell you about an even greater event.

Almost 40 years ago, Samuel prophesied the events to mark His birth and also the signs of His death. Not long after, our society grew so corrupt and evil that the government was destroyed, and that second set of signs came to pass.

Four days into the new year, the 34th since the sign of His birth, the storm of all storms hit. Words cannot express what the sky looked like. Not only did we have horrible weather, but there were earthquakes as never before and fires everywhere. Mountains were literally destroyed, and new ones were created. Many areas fell into the sea and are now covered with water. The whole landscape changed.

Fish and Forgiveness

Fish and Forgiveness

Did it really happen? Racing to the tomb. Finding the linen grave clothes. Not knowing what to think. Hiding in fear ... and then — Him. Right there, alive. Feeling His breath on my face and hearing Him whisper, "Holy Ghost."

Did it really happen? And what did it mean? He said, "I send you." But where?

I don't understand.

Seeing Him again, I wanted to bawl for joy and at the same time hide for shame. That final night ... what I did...

There's just one thing I understand. And that's fishing.
