Moroni : 7 - Part 1
I am SO glad that Moroni kept writing. Can you imagine the Book of mormon without the last 4 chapters of Moroni? The depth of explanation of faith, hope, and charity? The blessing of Babies? The promise and invitation to read the Book of Mormon, used by all missionaries? Yeah... There are some gems here in ...

Moroni : 6
This was a good chapter. Starts out stating that worthiness is necessary in order for baptism into the Lord's church:
bringing forth fruit of worthiness (not entirely sure what this means, specifically)
having a broken heart and contrite spirit, showing a witness of true repentance
taking upon yourself the name of Chris...

Moroni : 5
Another very short one. If I understand it correctly, the prayer states that by partaking of the water, we are covenanting (or "witnessing") unto God that we will always remember Christ. I believe a few chapters ago, I wrote quite an entry on the importance of remembering. As evidenced by the inclusion of it in a w...

I think these chapters are too short. Interesting to note that the scripture says that the elder or priest would "kneel down with the church", yet the congregation doesn't kneel down today.
Also interesting to note that the sacrament prayer is one of very few prayers which have to be said verbatim, and hasn't changed at all ...

Moroni 3. This one isn't speaking much to me, but I did find it interesting that only after they prayed, the disciples excercised their priesthood to ordain offices in the priesthood. ...and that it was done through endurance through faith on the name of Christ. Enduring to the end has always been pretty much the last key to...

So, these chapters are pretty small, but for some reason, I think there's quite a significance in this one. Not quite sure if I've found it yet, but the reason I think this, is - originally, this text was not included in the scripture - and it is Christ talking himself. I wonder why Moroni felt the need, or was inspired to include it?&n...

Holy cow. I only have 10 more chapters to go, and I'll finish the goal I set 3 years ago, to read and write about each chapter in the Book of Mormon. I'm not sure why, but when I just realized that (like 1 minute ago), it was kind of surreal for me. Anyway... Here goes.
Moroni had to be one of the most tr...

Ether : 15
What a horrible end to this story. Poor Coriantumr. Saw his situation with vivid clarity after it was too late, and rather than give up his life, he watched (which what must have been a horror show) everything Ether had told him come to life: The complete destruction of his people, leaving him alone. I can't imagine th...

Ether : 14
So, this chapter was a bit like the last, only worse. Blood, carnage, war, and death throughout pretty much every verse.
One of the beginning verses, though, caught my attention. The one that says that people couldn't go to sleep at night, without losing their treasures, even to the point where they had to sleep with weapons to ...

So, this chapter, I hate to say it, wasn't very inspiring to me. I'm not sure if it's the state I'm in, or the chapter itself, or both, but there wasn't too much inspiration going on.
I did, however, 3 years ago, begin the journey of reading and writing about each and every chapter in the Book of Mormon, so I've gotta write something, if I ...

Recording Jeff Felix's "Peculiar"
Picking up new clients is always a good thing, but in the case of yesterday, it was a great thing.
I had the privilege of recording his new song, Peculiar, and it was very refreshing. It was a simple tune with some great acoustic guitar work, and vocals. Jason Jones added some percussion accents, and the song came to life.

I've only got a bit to write about it, so I'll write as much as I can.
I took off around 10:20 tonight to see what kind of damage I could do out on the streets.
I was cruising on state street in Orem when I found a Dodge Charger R/T who wanted to play. The...

New Song - "Hello"
Okay... So about a month ago, I sat down at my keyboard and plunked out a few notes. About 2 weeks later, I gave a rough copy of a mash of music to my friend, Ryan Phillips, and had plunked out some sweet riffs to it.
Two weeks later, I add some vocals and effects, and this is what you've got.
I hope you like it. (press the ...

Wisdom Teeth out.
So the Wisdom teeth came out this morning. I was awake and numb, and it was okay. It really doesn't hurt much at all and I'm just taking Motrin. I feel pretty good. I'm really excited that I will be able to make it to Sacrament on Sunday and I also have a quick interview for my patriarchal blessing!!!!! Which I really don't want to miss.

So last night was the big Mormon Prom, me and my boyfriend Sean looked great! I had spent all day getting my hair and stuff done, and it really paid off in the end. Even though I was running like 15 minutes late to where Sean has wanted to take some pictures.
It took two and a half hours to do my hair, so I didn't get to leave in time. So I told ...

You can schedule a band for a full-day, and they can come in and get it all done sooner or later than what was previously thought. There are so many variables, it can get a bit stressful.

Welcome to Conference - Monson
This morning I decided I'd start the traditional blogging of each general conference talk from the last general conference in October.
As President Monson began this talk, a familiar spirit filtered in to my office at work and inevitably, my heart was opened to the inspired words of our wonderful prophet.
I'm so grateful for our church. I...

Ibanez SR-300 + Kustom Amp!
Since we've opened for business, and even before, I've started to notice a sad trend in recording audio. This is speaking extremely generally, and there have been a few people who have definitely broken the mold, but in my experience, I've noticed that the musical instrument getting the least amount of love is the bass guitar.
For the most ...

Playing this song was a joy, until I realized I'd been playing wrong for so many years. Trying to do the cover as a true cover was freakin' hard for this song. I hope I did it justice, though. There were a few points where I totally fubbed hits, but there were only a few.
So... Here it is. Let me know what ya think....

Hi there! I'm PoeticIntensity

I started journaling when I was 14, in 1990, as a new years resolution. I had no idea then just how much I would get into journaling.
