Finding Relief from Heavy Burdens

In December 2012 I was asked to speak at my local church congregation’s sacrament meeting. I hadn’t planned on sharing my ‘talk’ publicly because my blog readership is made up of people from a wide variety of religious backgrounds and belief systems, and I have always striven to focus on principles and precepts that people of faith around the world all share in common. But I’ve recently felt like there may be some who would benefit from this message. First, I introduced myself… then I continued with this: I’d like to talk about two things in particular that we’ve been asked in the Bible to do – to have faith

When You Feel Confused and Don’t Know What To Do… Pick Your Picnic

“John, aren’t you going to put on your seatbelt?” “Why, are we going to get into a crash?” “No, but seatbelts save lives…” John retorted, “Seatbelts don’t save lives.” “Of course they do!” His friend explained, “Once, I was driving with my family and something told me to make sure everyone was wearing their seatbelts.

John was traveling with some business guys in a large and very expensive rig. It was important for him to get to a meeting where he was to be the key speaker. However, as they motored along, he realized that the engine temperature was beginning to rise. One of his passengers was concerned that John was going to ruin the engine if he didn’t just pull over and wait for help. John knew plenty about auto repair, but just didn’t have the tools. Also

I didn’t trust God

I received an email the other day that was SO appreciated; here’s why: Even though I may have “written the book” on it, I still have to learn and re-learn the principles over and over again. (Yes, it’s true.) This is why: When I stop practicing them, I begin to doubt them. When I decide to apply myself to them again, I have to get back to that innocent, child-like faith – and it’s not always so easy to do. So to hear a story like this (below) helps me remember to keep it simple, and just trust. I hope that my sharing it with you will do the same for you: “Hi Leslie, Thanks so much for all of this amazing stuff. You probably hear stories like the
