My Testimony

I'm going to be perfectly honest I don't want to write this email. I'm crying way to hard to make any degree of sense. So bear with me. It's so hard for me to believe I'm coming home. This has all gone so fast I feel like it was a dream. My heart is breaking … Continue reading My Testimony

My Left Wing

The past week or two I haven't been sleeping much. The muscles in my legs are having a really difficult time relaxing and so the cramps have been keeping me up at night. Sunday night was particularly rough and often as a missionary its easy to feel very alone, especially at night if you are … Continue reading My Left Wing

No Longer Required

In the Missionary training Center I faced some difficult medical problems and was advised to return home. I remember asking the MTC doctor if he thought it was possible for me to serve a mission without returning home. He said it would be difficult and painful, but if I was willing to do it it … Continue reading No Longer Required

The Peaceful Feeling

“Where’s the mountain and whats the record?”

Sister Goodwin even caught a bass we later cleaned, cooked, and ate! There's a picture in here of … Continue reading Fishers of Men

Am I a Mormon?

This week we went fishing with Crystal in Front Royal and on the way up her step-son turned to me and said, "Am I a Mormon?" I laughed out loud and answered him that he hadn't been baptized, but someday would be if he chose to. His question has been on the back of my … Continue reading Am I a Mormon?

I hope you'll read them carefully and listen to what The Lord would have you do because of … Continue reading Truly Converted

To the youth of the Lewiston Idaho stake, Thank you so much for the letters you all wrote me! After a long day your notes of inspiration came as a breath of fresh air and relief.
