Forsake all Sins

Do we have something that is holding us back from serving God and finding the happiness that only He can give? I would invite each of you to read in the Book of Mormon and find the peace that comes from living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

If ye were called to die at this time...

I know I have a lot to work on, but I am making efforts to improve. I know that through the Savior's help we can make it back to our Heavenly Father.

The Tree of Life

Here is a post from my Companion Elder Bishop

And it came to pass that I beheld others pressing forward, and they came forth and caught hold of the end of the rod of iron; and they did press forward through the mist of darkness, clinging to the rod of iron, even until they did come forth and partake of the fruit of the tree. 1 Nephi 8:24

Slow Down a Little

"Strength comes not from frantic activity but from being settled on a firm foundation of truth and light. It comes from placing our attention and efforts on the basics of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. It comes from paying attention to the divine things that matter most." - Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Everything Good comes from the Lord

There are so many wonderful things in our lives. Our Savior has given us so much. Now let us be thankful to Him this Christmas Season.

Baptisms for the dead

One of the blessings associated with the Temple is baptisms for the dead. Those who are not baptized in this life, are given the opportunity to choose to accept baptism and the blessings of the Gospel through work done in the Temple.

Ye receive no witness

And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith.

Small and Simple things

By these doing these small and simple things great things come to pass. Read your scriptures, turn to your Heavenly Father in prayer, come to His church and partake of His Sacrament, and His Spirit will be with you.

Never be weary of good works

Teach them to never be weary of good works, but to be meek and lowly in heart; for such shall find rest to their souls. Alma 37:34

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

Hold Fast

Though challenges are great, with Christ we can make it through. Hold fast to the word of God.

Saturday, November 30, 2013

Things that matter not

It is easy to loose focus of what matters, and instead focus on things that don't matter. Take some time to remember what Heavenly Father wants you to become, and work for it.

Wednesday, November 27, 2013


With Thanksgiving coming up I would like to invite everyone to remember what Heavenly Father has done for them. Then take the time to get down on your knees and thank him.

Where there is no vision

We progress best when we have vision of where we want to be. This is why I feel so blessed to have a knowledge of the Plan of Salvation. If you would like to know more about God's Plan for you ask the missionaries (or shoot me a message)

Mountains To Climb

We all have mountains to climb, but with our Savior's help we can pull through these challenges.

The Importance of Scripture

I know that taking the time to study the scriptures makes each day better. It is such an amazing, underused blessing. Take some time to read your scriptures today.

Saturday, November 9, 2013

Walk Uprightly

Walking uprightly before God involves keeping the commandments, and serving our fellow man, basically doing the very best we can, then repenting when we fall short. When we do this, all things shall work together for our good.

The Peace of God

The peace of God is something to be attained only through the Atonement of Christ. How has the Atonement blessed you in your life?

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

Be ye Thankful

I found this Scripture in my studies this morning and it caused me to think of many of the things I am thankful for. What are you thankful for?

To Change

Christ atoned for our sins because he loves us, but it is up to us whether we accept it in our lives.

Saturday, November 2, 2013


Many times we let the Thorns (or trials) in our lives halt our journey back to our Heavenly Father. If we put our faith in Christ he will take our thorns and help us keep going.

Fiery darts

And I said unto them that it was the word of God; and whoso would hearken unto the word of God, and would hold fast unto it, they would never perish; neither could the temptations and the fiery darts of the adversary overpower them unto blindness, to lead them away to destruction.

Keep the Commandments

When we keep the commandments and live the Gospel of Jesus Christ we have a greater happiness. How has keeping the commandments blessed you in your life?

Saturday, October 26, 2013

Service to others

I have found fulfillment in all aspects of my mission, but there is a special feeling I get when an opportunity to serve others comes.

The Gospel of Christ

With all the strength of my soul, I testify that God lives and loves us, that His Only Begotten Son lived and died for us, and that the gospel of Jesus Christ is that penetrating light which shines through the darkness of our lives. May it ever be so, I pray in the sacred name of Jesus Christ, amen. - Thomas S Monson

Try Church

So many of the problems we face in life will be solved as we show our dedication to live God's Commandments.

Another post from Elder Robinson

This doctrine is pure and simple. I am grateful for this understanding, as it gives us a greater meaning to life when we realize that we will dwell with our Divine Maker again!

Hope is never lost

Despite how dreary things may appear, the light of hope is there. All we need do is find it and hold to it. Things that have helped me hold to the light of hope are prayer and scripture study. These are tools given to us by our Heavenly Father.

Know that one Day the dawn will break brightly

To anyone going through dark times, remember the words of Elder Holland during this last conference.

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

True Repentance

Accepting Christ's Atonement in our lives will change all aspects of our lives. It will truly bring brightest day from the darkest night.

Monday, October 14, 2013

He will Assist

As we do all we can in the Lord's work we are not alone. Keeping his commandments may not be easy, but we have His help. All things are possible through Christ.

Saturday, October 12, 2013

Just waiting

God is just waiting to bless us. With every commandment he promises us more than he requires.

The Acorn of Honest Inquiry

Our doubts when viewed with an eye of faith will be resolved and, as President Uchtdorf stated in conference, sprout into a great oak of understanding. Don't let doubts hold you back from coming to Christ.

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Don't let doubt overcome faith

As was said in General Conference. Doubt you doubts before you doubt your faith. Many of us have questions. All of us have doubts at some point, but the point is to not let doubts overcome faith.

Temple Square

I have had some truly amazing experiences with awesome people on Temple Square, including the recent conference. Have you been to Temple Square?

God gives us simple blessings

Many a time I have had my day brightened by a simple blessing, an experience. Not necessarily exciting, but a simple thing. How does God brighten your day?

Another Picture done by Elder Robinson

My old companion posted this on Facebook:
"Faith = Verb. As long as we keep that in mind, we are on the right track."

Now The Day Is Over

Many time we may nigh to the end of the day. We may feel we have done no good. The day is not over there is always time to do good, to help someone in need.

Commitment is not a seasonal thing

Regardless of the season or circumstances, we need to be true to our testimony, and true to our commitment to Christ. How has Christ helped you in your life?

The Light: Christ

Light is something we each need to see and to live. We cannot live without the light, we cannot live in eternity without Christ. If Christ makes all things possible shouldn't we follow him?

The Path Leading to Salvation

Despite how hard things get the experiences in our lives are what mold us into what God wants us to be.

Have you ever wanted to hear the voice of a Prophet? Here is your chance!

What Matters Most

There are many things to distract us from what matters most in life. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored. The Priesthood authority is once more on the Earth, and we can be with our families for eternity through temple sealing. What does this mean to you?

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

There is a God

A Post from my Companion Elder Robinson:

As we take a step back and look at our beautiful world, you will see how true this really is!! I know that God exists and cares about each of us because of the way he has blessed my life. How have you come to know that He is there, and cares about you?

Shake Off The Chains

Too Many times we let life pull us down. We let sin and the things of the world bind us in chains that halt our spiritual progression. Shake off the Chains!
