Like everyone that has come across this blog, I know that life is difficult. Sometimes we are confronted with problems that can be incredibly painful and challenging to navigate. And conversely, though “we walk through the valley of the shadow of death” life can be incredibly rich and full of meaning.

My blog’s purpose is to address real, everyday issues and to approach these things with a spiritual perspective. I believe that putting things in their proper context can help us better understand and cope with the life’s everyday challenges.

I’m a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Because of the unique challenges I have faced in my own life, I’ve had many opportunities to try out the teachings I’ve heard so much from the Church and its leaders. When my heart has been sincere and I’ve showed some faith, God has been there for me over and over again, just like the Church said He would. I retain my membership in the Church because I know that its teachings are correct as evidenced in the miracles I have experienced.

A little more about myself. I was born and raised in Orem/Lindon, Utah. I would consider one of my strongest attributes to be curiosity. Had I lived 400 years ago, I may have been a sea traveler. I’m very analytical. By profession, I’m a compliance specialist. I like delving into the minutiae looking for things that most people might consider mind-numbingly boring. I’ve been called a little goofy before and I wouldn’t disagree.

I hope this blog can help in some way. Thanks for visiting.
