Former glory

This earth life is — crappy. Excuse my language (really, I’m toning it down and not using my favorite curse word.) It’s difficult. It’s hard. Somedays I can’t believe that those of a higher glory chose to become mortal — that we chose to come to a telestial world. Christ laid down his former glory to be the savior. Adam […]

The Spirited Side of President David O. McKay

One of my earliest memories of being a Mormon is President David O. McKay. He became the prophet, in April 1951, and served until his death in 1970, at the age of 96. He had been an apostle, at age 32, since 1906. Three years after he was sustained as President of the Church, I was born, in 1954. He was […]

Bar Beard Balm

Beeswax Beard Balm Bar

Beards seem to be quite the craze. But an untamed beard is not my favorite. That’s why I decided to mix up some beard balm and make it in a bar for easier application. Use it like you would a bar of soap — not with water, but after bathing, towel dry your beard, and then warm the beeswax beard […]

Why it’s hard to hear new information

There are several reasons why it’s hard for people to hear new information and be open to a new idea or way of thinking. In the book Creativity Inc, Ed Catmull explains how the brain fills in what it expects to see. They had made their first computer animation at Lucas Film, and even though they had not finished it, […]

Large fruit of Zion

Just this morning I was reading from the books of Adam and Eve in the OT pseudepigrapha. I first heard about these books when Hugh Nibley quoted from them, and I have since kept them on my bookshelf. In this one, Adam and Eve are distraught, having transgressed, having lost their light and their glory where they lived in the garden. […]

Magnesium Deficiency

Choosing a good Magnesium supplement

My husband and I have been taking magnesium supplements. For years I have been  taking Jigsaw Magnesium and it has really helped with my benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (which I first got doing the stupid zip line in Costa Rica — I hate heights.) I stopped taking calcium supplements and switched to magnesium and I seldom get the dizziness now. […]

And where was Eve?

I find it interesting that Eve wasn’t present when God forbid Adam to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. In fact, according to scripture, Eve wasn’t even created when Adam got this information. The scriptures give us no accounting for when or how Eve learned that the fruit was forbidden. But we do have […]

Symbolism of change

I had an epiphany the other morning as I was awakening from a night’s sleep. I was a little groggy, still waking in my bed of slumber, the old ipod playing a section of Moses from the Pearl of Great Price. Then as if angels were relaying information to me, I began to “awaken” to the meaning of clothing in […]

A time of awakening

    I’ve always said I seek greater light and knowledge. That’s one of the reasons I was attracted to my husband — he was a seeker and still is. Some of my studies have included the translation of Isaiah by Avraham Gileadi, and recently I have been reading Karen Prier’s book, Understanding the Divine.   If you live in […]
