The Sun is Still Shining Even When it Rains

Earlier today Jessica and I were on our way back from a weekend in San Antonio. It was a smooth flight with the sun streaming through our little window and illuminating the beautiful landscape below. As we neared Salt Lake City the captain informed…

Root to Rise

Here in the Unites States on this day of reflection, I am reminded of opportunity.  Whenever a nation, city, family or individual is confronted by sheer devastation, be it a massive terrorist attack, an overwhelming storm or an acute crisis, there’s shock, grief and…

The Eye of the Storm

There are people dear to me who, right now, are enduring some extreme conditions.  As the storms in South Texas bandy about water and wind and residents either flee or hunker down to ride out the storm we send thoughts of love and strength…

After reconciling himself to the actual ocean crossing and seeking ore to make tools, Nephi’s next step was to commence building the worthy vessel that would convey his entire family across the deep water to an entirely different life.  In moments of uncertainty it…
