Outside The Box – The Claridge Miracle

I’ve got an amazing personal story to tell you today, but first I want to set the stage. Here are two statements that were made by a man who had some very grave concerns about the people of the Church. “Would to God, brethren, I could tell you who I am! Would to God I could tell you what I know! But you would call …

Become A Weary-Wart

So I keep a journal of my proceedings of my days here in the fires of affliction. I may have mentioned it, but I am not a good journal keeper. Procrastination and journal writing don’t mix. Nevertheless, I started writing one page a day, on the very first day I came to prison, and I’ll be darned if I’m going to stop now after all …

I’d Take It All Back Just To [Hug] You!

This week I have learned how much our Savior Jesus Christ loves each and every one of us. But I fear that the biggest problem with our world today is that very few can say the same. His Atonement for our eternal souls was and is the greatest act of love that has ever existed. Right? We have heard that all of our lives, though, …

I came across this video today. I loved it so much I wanted to transcribe it that I might send it to Lindon. He is not allowed access to computers, or the Internet. I felt that I should share it with you on PrisonTemple, because if ever there was a better explanation of exactly what PrisonTemple is all about, this is it. Transcript: You are …

I just read (hot off the presses) Matt Walsh’s latest article, “Matt Walsh: Christians, it’s simple: if that TV show won’t bring you closer to God — don’t watch it,” and it is powerful. [Note: I find it very interesting that just yesterday I wrote a similar article regarding pretty much the very same subject. Don’t you find that interesting that the Spirit of Christ …

In my last post I explained to you all the recent events occurring in my life. I am at the mercy of God, and in miraculous ways He has allowed me a promotion in prison that I otherwise shouldn’t have been given. Yet here I am, wearing green pants inside a minimum security prison. This is every prisoners “dream.” In fact, I forgot to mention …

Green Clothes

I must say, the past couple weeks have been pretty crazy. Such is life as a prisoner. I really don’t know where to begin? I guess for starters, I am no longer at Harnett Correctional working construction. You’ll never guess where I am now! I chuckle thinking about the implausibility of everything. It took me a days’ worth being handed off from prison bus to …

The Eternal Pattern of the Callout, Or, Preparing Your Heart In All Things Against the Day When Tribulation and Desolation Are Sent Forth (D&C 29:8)

It is going to happen sometime in the future. The scriptures call it the Gathering, but many Latter-Day Saints have begun to call it the Callout, and many, many, many, many (did I say many?) Latter-Day Saints have never heard of it. And it has been my experience when they do hear about it they very quickly fall into one of three camps:  “Ain’t going …
