Interesting that I should choose to read this today, because my wife and I were talking a bit about the 2nd coming last weekend.  The second coming shall be like a "refiner's fire", which, of course, is meant to purify - or to burn out impurities.  That which abides by the law is sanctified by the same.  A talk I once heard...

Lucid 8 and Smooth Intentions

Some projects are just worth the wait.  Four months ago, we started working with a group named Lucid 8, and quite honestly, I've been itching to get their demo finished.  Well, we're heading down that road now, and it feels great.  We have one song finished, with 5 more quickly getting wrapped up.  Can't wait to see where these ...

Chapter 22 was another toughy, but I figure I'm gonna better my life if I read and am only able to type a tiny bit, rather than not read at all. I guess my brain is still getting over this sickness, because I find it difficult to do any critical thinking.  Anyway... I found it interesting the bit about "more are the children of the de...

So... I apologize for not having kept up-to-date with what's recently been going on, but I honestly haven't had the time!  If I have to choose between recording music, or writing about recording music, I'll take the former, thank you very much. So, this last week was booked solid - again.  We saw a few regulars come in and a few new on...

Ya know... I've now read this chapter twice, and I cannot remember a single thing I read.  I started journaling about the chapters of the Book of Mormon January 1, 2008 - as a resolution to write about each and every chapter of the book.  I'm not sure if I can make it through this chapter one more time!  I have no idea what's going o...

  this ones personal. I left the church after realizing that I am gay, and I don't want to change that. Lastnight. I do not believe in the Church's stance on homosexuality. Which is that you can overcome those temptations, that it is an awful sin, and as long as you don't act on it, youre okay. I really don't believe that God would make 10% of...

So, in Gospel Doctrine, from time to time, we talk about praying, and how we're supposed to pray all the time, and then we get the comments that it's impossible to "pray" all the time, and then someone else says that we need to be praying "always" in our hearts.  That's true, and verse 1 of this chapter is Jesus' commandmen...

So, Advanced Budget Studios took a bit of a break during the holidays, and with that came the usual curiosity as to how the new year would be. Well, I'd have to say that 2011 is looking great.  We started off the year recording a wonderful new artist named Taylor Miller.  He'll have a website up soon, and his music sounds fabulous! ...

2nd Nephi : 5
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
First thing which caught my attention this time around is verse 6. I relate that verse to the way the Lord works.  Basically, God lets everyone know about his plan, and those who believe Him will follow him. This makes me wonder if Nephi, through some sort of parable, told Laman and Lemuel what he was planning to do as well, but they didn'...

2nd Nephi : 4 - Nephi's Psalm
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
First, a question. In verse 15, Nephi states that he delights in the scriptures, and that he writes them according to the spirit.  Well...  That leads me to question whether or not he realized he was a prophet or not.  Very interesting, and possibly stupid, question (maybe he already knew about D&C 68:4). Now, the chunk of ...

Ya know, I love verse 6, and verses like it (2nd Nephi 4, for example).  The reason is quite simple. Sometimes it's hard to remember that prophets are people, too.  They're just subject to Satan's temptations and mistakes and errors and such as we are.  Verses like this remind me that they aren't perfect, and it brings them down to...

Fast Offerings

About a month ago, our bishop told us that the fast offering fund for the poor people in our ward is running low, and that we should consider giving a generous offering. I thought we should definitely consider doing so, but in the end, I forgot all about it. Today, however, our Bishop dedicated the entire sacrament meeting to the topic of sacri...

Picking up new clients is always a good thing, but in the case of yesterday, it was a great thing.
