Der Engel Weckt Elias In Der Wüste Haarlem 17 Jh E1480715714724

The Spirit and Power of Elijah

The Spirit and Power of Elijah is much more than temple work. The Lord explains that before He comes again, He will send Elijah the prophet to  “Turn the heart of the fathers to the sons, and the hearts of the sons to their fathers.” (Malachi 4:5-6) Otherwise, it will be total destruction. Did you notice that this version (Young’s Literal […]

What is this Baby Gift called Frankincense?

I’ve always liked to mix up potions and collect herbs. One year, I bought some frankincense for Christmas. I was teaching my kids about the three wise men and their gift of frankincense to Jesus. To kids, this seems like an odd baby gift in today’s world. I ordered some  from my favorite herb shop and it arrived in a small brown […]

The Divine Feminine

Beards And Grooming

Beeswax Beard Balm Bar

Beards seem to be quite the craze. And my husband is growing it out. 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 […]

sign of the dove

The sign of the dove

  I was pruning my bonsai Oak tree when I heard a fluttering. Turning around, I saw a white dove. It seemed so tame and fluttered from the grass up to a tree branch just above me. I was so surprised. Looking around for my German Shepherd, I gave her the command to “leave it.” I continued snipping the small […]

Tongues Of Fire Descend On The Apostles At Pentecost. Lithog Wellcome V0034957 E1479357659841

The Doctrine of Christ Explained

This topic — The Doctrine of Christ — has become the focus of recent talks, both in the Women’s Conference and in General Conference. The Lord explains His doctrine (to his newly called apostles in 3 Nephi) as follows: I give you authority to baptize with water; that is, I give you authority to perform the ordinance as the symbol of […]

Out Of Context

Taking things out of context

Taking things out of context. We see this in the media. Words taken out of context — phrases taken from a talk, or from a book. We post quotes. We read snippets and headlines. Tweets and cute messages. But even though a quote conveys meaning, sometimes we use these words taken out of context to represent the whole story — […]

Nature Book ideas for Homeschool

When it comes to homeschool, one of the more creative and interesting ways to learn about earth science and biology is by collecting specimens in nature and then drawing pictures of them in a journal. This way, you can identify them and eventually produce a book of nature finds by the end of the school year. I recommend that you […]

The Wasatch Fault

Of course, I decided to locate the Wasatch fault because my son is now living in Salt Lake City. And I know that the University of Utah where he is going to school is right up there against the Wasatch Mountain Range. I used to never think of Utah as an earthquake state. But I do now. Usually earthquake faults […]

Christ Asleep In His Boat Jules Joseph Meynier

Jesus is asleep in the boat

Jesus is asleep in the boat.  The apostles are trying their best to keep the boat afloat and not perish, and all the while Jesus is asleep, on a cushion, in the stern of the boat. I never thought about that while reading the parable  — I had only focused on Jesus calming the sea. He had been teaching the […]

Melting Beeswax

I love beeswax. I use it in my homemade creams and lotions. But I like to know that the beeswax is pure without any other wax. I began to question some of the sources on Amazon when some of the beeswax just didn’t smell right. Many times the product came from China. Who knows if it’s real beeswax. I started looking […]

The Great Separation in Taoism

I picked up a book at the dollar bookstore, and as I read it, the author, Benjamin Hoff explained that within Taoism there is a teaching of the Great Separation, you will recognize some obvious similarities to the plan of salvation: “Thousands of years ago, man lived in harmony with the rest of the natural world. Through what we would today […]

The Survival Belt from SlideBelts

I’m all about that word “survival” even though it brings to mind everything connected with “disaster” — yea, not something we really see in our current civilization in the U.S. But history is awash with it for sure. And it seems to be a popular topic for reality t.v. I guess I just don’t want to be caught trying to […]

The Book of Mormon a tragic book

Remember, the Book of Mormon is a tragic book; it is “a voice from the dust.” It’s very sad, as you know. It begins on a note of destruction and ends on a note of destruction. It begins with lone survivors in the wilderness and ends with a lone survivor. There’s nothing more sad than survival; it’s a dirty word. […]

A Manual for the After-Life

Here’s a pillow for your head, when you’re dead. If you were royalty in ancient Egypt, and newly dead, the “temple” workers would place this round pillow-papyrus thing under your head — after they removed your organs and wrapped you up mummy style. Meant to supply “life giving fire” to the head of the dead, it was a manual for the after-life. It was […]

The hidden divine feminine

The divine feminine has been hidden and removed from most of our ancient texts – we believe in the Bible as far as it is translated correctly – but today we have greater scholarship uncovering the texts that reveal the divine feminine – once you start looking for her, you shouldn’t be surprised to see that the man is not […]

Eve Daring Greatly

In life, we fall. I like what Brene Brown says about falling:  – She is a social worker researcher, and professor at Texas University. You may not have signed up for a hero’s journey, but the second you fell down, got your butt kicked, suffered a disappointment, screwed up, or felt your heart break, it started. It doesn’t matter whether […]

Creating balance in marriage

Creating is a godly quality. The Gods create – it’s the first sentence in Genesis: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) “And then the Lord said: Let us go down. And they went down at the beginning, and they, that is the Gods, organized and formed the heavens and the earth.” (Abraham 4:1) It’s […]

The Mother in Heaven

Zion’s Poetess, Eliza R. Snow wrote a poem that is one of our best revelations that we have a Mother in Heaven: In the heav’ns are parents single? No, the thought makes reason stare! Truth is reason; truth eternal Tells me I’ve a mother there… When I leave this frail existence, When I lay this mortal by, Father, Mother, may […]
