God looks out for the Shearers My dad told me that several different times in my life. None of them were connected. When he said it to me the first time I … Continue reading God Looks Out for the Shearers

But here's the thing, when I took a minute to think about how things went I am grateful and I can see God in a lot of parts. My dad, Malcolm Shearer had cancer. He … Continue reading Grateful
The Good Samaritan – Am I the last to see this meaning?
A couple of weeks ago I was rereading the talk form the April 2021 General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of latter Day Saints that is called Room at the Inn by Elder Gerrit W. Gong.
