I finally completed something I’ve thought about doing for a long time.

I had an idea to do this a few years ago but I just could never settle down enough to do it.  You see, it’s always been a bit of a dream of mine to Continue reading

My (Personal) Defense of the Law of Chastity

trial

I’m no lawyer, and I sure don’t play one on TV, but what I’ve observed from trials is that they usually call witnesses to the stand either testify against or for the defendant.  Today I’m sharing my personal experience and testifying on behalf of the law of chastity.  A law from God that is constantly on trial and is constantly attacked by the world.

Before I go on, I think it’s important to talk about a few things that the law of chastity entails.  The law of chastity as revealed by the Lord (through his scriptures and his prophets) deals with some of these: Continue reading

Justamormonwriter.com Is Closing Down. Here’s Why-

I have a testimony that God reveals things to us “line upon line, precept upon precept.”  Starting this blog has been no different.

When I first started this site I had no idea what I was doing, only that I felt it was something I should do.  I was at a dark place in my life, I was nearing graduating college and I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life.  This caused me great anxiety.

Someone is bound to say something like, Continue reading

10 Things I Learned in 2013

1. Changing the way you say your prayers can change your life.  For a long time I prayed as if trying to conform Heavenly Father to my will, but once I stopped and started seeking what He would have me do and not what I would have Him do, things changed for me drastically. Continue reading

I apologize for the lack of posts lately, but I’m nearing the end of my final semester of college and life has been insane.  In just one week I’ll be completely done with my bachelors degree.  Whewf.

I wish I could properly capture the roller coaster that has happened to me in the past few weeks, but I’m afraid that would take up a thousand blog posts.  I’ll spare you the novel.

But, I do want to write about something that has been on my mind a lot lately.  It’s the most basic and one of the most important principles of a life worth living.
