Church Fire

I wanted to write a post, kind of just for the memories so I remember about this, as something like this has never happened to me before. Or at least never happened to a church building that I attended or previously attended. Firefighters extinguished a second alarm fire at a Read more…

Back to Church?

Today made me feel grateful for technology. This was also a pretty strange and weird day. Got up this morning, and got ready for church. This part was not very different than what we had done in the last 6-7 months. Since the pandemic shutdown church, and the temple, Krissie Read more…

Food Storage

Some time ago, we were at Costco and we saw “The Shelf Reliance Food Storage Rotation” systems.  I think the first time that we had seen them was at a Wal-Mart in Logan, Utah.  I loved them then, and everytime I saw one, I fell more and more in love with the thing.

Polygamy and Gays

Yesterday, I was watching a Television show where they were talking with some of the people involved in polygamy.  Experts say that there are anywhere from 30,000 to 50,000 people living in some type of plural marriage family. Oprah did an interview with one of the families.  She was talking to each of the 3 wives, and none of them acted like it was any kind of big deal.  Between the 3 of them there are 23 people in the house, including the 3 wives, the 1 husband, and all the children.  I know at one time, that this was something the we believed in, only because it was a commandment given to the brethren at that time. 

But the things they were being said on the Oprah Winfrey Show, frustrated me so bad, that I had to blog about it and get some frustrations out.
