Was Christopher Columbus Led by God to the New World?

Not My Will Be Done, Thy Will Be Done

Not My Will Be Done, Thy Will Be Done Two of my favorite authors and thinkers are Neal A. Maxwell and C.S. Lewis. Both were incredibly blessed with insight and an ability to communicate powerful ideas. These two great quotes focus on the need to submit ourselves to God, and to give ourselves over to […]

Having an Eye of Faith, Part 1: Sacred Imagination

The Helix nebula has been nicknamed the “Eye of God” and is one of the most stunning photographs captured by the Hubble telescope. It very much looks like a giant celestial eye in 3-D staring right back at us. We might liken the Hubble telescope to our mind, that when properly tuned in, we can […]

And They did Dwindle in Unbelief

Dwindling in Unbelief If you’ve read the Book of Mormon, you have read this phrase a few times: “they dwindled in unbelief.” What does that mean? What is unbelief? How do you dwindle in unbelief? If ever there was a time in history when a people dwindled in unbelief, it’s now, but do we really […]

Gematria – Good Clean Fun

In last weeks’ blog post on the symbolism of numbers and colors, I mentioned one of my great institute teachers (John Fowles) that got me going down that path.
