Death is not the End!

I feel like death surrounds me intimately. Not my own death, but the death of loved ones and loved ones of friends. My heart aches for us in our losses, for the Lord told us that we would live in so much love that we would mourn the passing of those we loved (D&C 42:45). … Continue reading Death is not the End!

I have had three different jobs, two … Continue reading Go Get Them!
