How Does God Confirm Truth to Us?

I’ve been in conversation with a Mormon missionary lately. Our first meeting, at the front door of my parents’ home, wasn’t the best.

About Me

As a child, I experienced 7 marriages between my parents. My main home had an Atheist, Southern Baptist, and Mormon under one roof. There was abuse by step-siblings. Loss. Grief. Joy. Laughter. And deep sadness. I married my high-school sweetheart, we have two wonderful sons, and by golly we’re happy going on 16 years. This blog is a collection of reflections, thoughts, hurts, joys, and questions about life.
