Temple Recommend Interview


A couple of years ago, I went to get my temple recommend renewed. I was expecting it to be a bit problematic because I knew I could no longer answer the questions straight out the way I needed to if I was going to get the recommend. But I went anyway and expected the Lord to guide me. I started off explaining to the bishop that I had some concerns about the temple recommend questions that I wanted to discuss. … Continue reading

Bunnies, not Bulls


Recently I had a dream that the Lord wants me to share. I was on an island with several friends. We were living there as a community. The community had the feel of a family to it, as though we were all brothers and sisters to each other. We were completely comfortable with one another. I assume there were 8 people in the community because there were 8 sleeping bags in the dream. In the dream I dreamt that I … Continue reading

They are Watching . . .


One night I had a dream that my family and I were in a hotel room. We were doing fine in the room but outside the hotel was surrounded by soldiers. I knew they would harm us if they could, but also knew we were safe as long as we stayed in the room. After a while we got hungry and ordered some food. The woman who brought the food was short, chubby, and had medium brown hair cut into … Continue reading

Spiritually Sick


One night I had a dream that I was in a school. The building was very large and the room I was in was also very large. It was sort of like a peninsula because it was separate from the rest of the building and connected only by a hallway that led to it. The room was completely empty except for a bed on the floor which I was laying on. There were floor to ceiling windows all around the … Continue reading



One night when we were living in Korea I had a dream. At the time, I was expecting our fourth child. I was in the final trimester of pregnancy. In my dream I was sitting with my pregnant belly protruding awkwardly in front of me, as usual. Then something incredible occurred. The baby pushed it’s way up into a standing position inside of me. My skin stretched over the baby’s figure, enclosing it like a glove, showing us the outline … Continue reading

Take the High Road


In Korea I had a dream that my family was preparing for a great journey. At this time, I remember only two parts of the dream. In the first part, I was looking at a map that was tacked up on a wall. There was a crowd of people gathered around the map looking at it as well. The map showed two trails with a beginning point on the bottom left of the map and an end point at the … Continue reading

Betrayed by My Own Heart


Nephi wrote “Oh, wretched man that I am . . .” and laments the anger he has in heart toward his brethren. I find myself identifying with his sentiments lately. I find myself dragged down to the depths of hell, suffering anger and a desire for revenge. I tried last night to overcome the sorrows in my heart by expressing gratitude to the Lord for my difficulties. I have done it before with incredible results. But this time I couldn’t … Continue reading

Defeating the Enemy


I was meditating the other night. During my meditation my thoughts turned to a woman who has hurt me greatly in my life. I could feel the pain of anger toward her in my heart and asked Jesus to help me let go of it. I was seeing her sitting in her chair where I had last seen her during the visit that had hurt me more profoundly than any other. She was in her large house with her nice … Continue reading

Ha, Ha, Very Funny


When I am upset, Jesus often cracks jokes for me to try and cheer me up. Sometimes it helps. Usually it just calms me down a bit so I can see straighter for a while. Excuse Me? One day I was upset about something. I don’t remember what. But I was grumbling to Jesus about it. I was asking him things like, why did you have to let that happen. I was in a foul mood and I was taking … Continue reading

Morning Meditation


I saw a vision as I meditated this morning. Initially, the colors left by the impressions of light when I closed my eyes formed into a picture. I saw two young men in a room, one sitting on the floor by a low desk and the other sitting next and a little behind him on the edge of a low bed. They were wearing robes. A window was open behind the desk. I left the vision in order to power … Continue reading
