Giving Praise To The Man Joseph Smith

Giving Praise To The Man Joseph Smith

A few weeks ago I was drawn into a conversation on Facebook by a former High School classmate about our prophet Joseph Smith, Jr..

A Big Sky Summer

I’ve escaped to the mountains for a few days of rest and relaxation. There’s nothing like sitting by a mountain lake, breathing in pine scented air, communing with nature and watching some wildlife to soothe the weary soul.
