Our Advocate Before the Father

Michael Claridge Michael 0 Comments

On this beautiful Easter weekend I thought I would teach you some of my favorite doctrines regarding our Savior and Redeemer. It is my heartfelt desire these truths can touch your heart as they have so profoundly changed mine. One of my many hidden talents is I’m a great arguer, I could have been a successful trial attorney, for sure. Maybe that’s where Levi, my …

Hacking the Law of Opposition

Lindon Claridge Lindon 0 Comments

Are we all familiar with the love opposition? Well, if you are not, here is a quick little refresher course: everything has its necessary opposite. Good – bad, sweet – bitter, happiness – sadness, and so forth. It is best described by Papa Lehi: 11 For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things. If not so, my firstborn in the …

My Visit with Lindon

Michael Claridge Lindon, Michael 2 Comments

So I went to see Lindon. The visit was wonderful. But flying standby was an adventure (a story for another time). Let me say this: Lindon is AMAZING! His spirits are up, his faith is strong, and he looks great!  He had a list of things jotted down on a tiny piece of paper that he wanted to talk about. Our visit was four hours …

A Pound, Nay, A Ton of Humbling Perspective

Lindon Claridge Lindon 1 Comment

I’m copying for you a letter I got this week from Lindon.  He didn’t ask for me to post it, nor does he know I’m posting it, which is evidence enough to prove its sincerity and authenticity. Lindon didn’t say these things for any other reason than to tell me his heartfelt testimony of them. Remember tomorrow as you go to Church, you are treading …

An invitation: Join Us in the 90 Day Remnant Rebirth

Michael Claridge Lindon, Michael 12 Comments

A Little History About 40 days ago, Lindon and I started the 40-Day Missionary Fast. We got the idea from something my brother Mel posted on Facebook. I sent it to Lindon, he loved the idea and so we began a 40 day fast. The results have been wonderful. But as we are drawing to an end I came across this quote from the Gordon …

We Are Commanded To Daily Take Up Our Cross

Michael Claridge Michael 0 Comments

Imagine if you will that you are Moroni and you have carried and protected the Golden Plates for many years. You have experienced some amazing spiritual experiences, like walking and talking with angels, and also you have spent many hours in the presence of Jesus Christ Himself. Now the time has come for you to bury the Golden Plates in the Hill Cumorah, but before …

Don’t Be a Stiff Necked and Hard Hearted Mormon

Michael Claridge Humility, Michael 0 Comments

Many Latter-Day Saints would no doubt speak about how Moroni’s promise of the Book of Mormon tells us to pray to know if the Book of Mormon is true, and I’d have to disagree with them on that. I’m not trying to be a contrarian here, and it may just be a figure of speech, but Moroni doesn’t say that. He actually says to ask …

Forwards & Upwards

Lindon Claridge Lindon 3 Comments

A week ago today was a defining moment in my own personal ascension to the father. I had in my possession the private phone number to a man who has become one of my greatest heroes. As I was preparing both spiritually and emotionally to make the phone call him, a fit of excitement and nervousness overcame me. It was almost unbearable. Maybe I shake …

Sin Destroys the Soul

Lindon Claridge Lindon 0 Comments

Sin, you can’t spell it without an “I”. I sin. I have been sinning for 24 years. It’s the thing I like least about myself. So I speak with a frustrating firsthand experience in this post. Sadly though, you will be able to understand me, because “there is not a just man upon earth that doith good, and sinneth not.” (Ecclesiastes 7:20, Romans 3:23) I …

I Have a Dream

Lindon Claridge Humility, Lindon 0 Comments

I celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day in a way I had never before supposed. I will admit that I am a bit unlearned in regards to this holiday, and what it constitutes. But I’ll tell you, after this experience I was being walked through, I hope to read up on my history, so I understand it better. However, I do know the general …
