I Finally Did This…

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


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.

“What’s With Everyone Posting About General Conference?”

Last weekend my Facebook feed exploded with posts from members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints during the semi-annual general conference (a twice a year meeting where the prophets, apostles and general authorities speak to members of the church worldwide).  Many people wrote about messages that touched their hearts, shared meme’s with quotes from the conference, and invited others to watch the broadcast with them.
