On the site, I wrote the following on the ABOUT page –
Elder Ballard, in a talk reprinted in the Ensign in July 2008, entitled –“Sharing the Gospel Using the Internet” encouraged members of the church to use the media to speak. That, in combination with President Uchtdorf’s beautiful talk to the Relief Society in October 2008, “Happiness, Your Heritage”which encouraged people create, are the reason for this blog.
I taught Seminary for a number of years, during which time I felt the profound influence that immersion in the study of the gospel can bring. I hope that this site can be a place for inspiration and reference to help in the spiritual pursuit of gospel knowledge.
I am responsible for the information that has been placed here and I do not speak for the Church as a whole.
I have been privileged to teach religion again since 2017, as a visiting professor at BYU-I for 3 years and now as a full-time Seminary teacher again. I still believe that studying the word of God refreshes the soul in a way that nothing else can.
