    Power, and What You Can Do Today

    Power is not a scary word. Evil is a scary word, but it’s because of decades of conditioning that has led to us associating power with evil, because power is always used against us. Power in the right hands is a force for good, but it must be in the hands of reliable and trustworthy people. So don’t wait for someone else to do it! Make yourself into a trustworthy person and exercise what power

    A Momentous Occasion

    Well, one of many soon to occur. I passed my driver's exam!

    Because our state decided they would extend their lockdown rules a bit longer, I no longer have to take the multi-hour drive with the instructor beside me. Literally all I had to do was park forward, park backward, and do a three-point-turn, and a couple of turns and stops.

    Choose You This Day

    A man was walking past three workers in a construction zone where a library was going to be built. He yelled over the noise, "What are you three men doing?"

    The first worker replied, "I'm drilling a hole."

    The second worker said, "I'm earning $20 an hour."

    The third worker smiled. "I am building a temple of learning."

    The Author's Rendition of Marshal Malice

    I decided to use what little artistic skills I have to create the image I had in my head of A Rather Large Adventure's main villain. Marshal Malice's appearance is a bit tough to translate into words. To simplify, he looks like someone slapped a dragon head onto a centipede. With ten legs. A one-tenthipede.

The Endowment · 12:12pm September 10th

Yesterday, I received this gift in the Philadelphia temple. I went alongside my parents, my bishop, and two of my friends from the ward who were an old Guatemalan couple. Between the drive there, the wait, the session itself, some more sealing, and the trip back, it took twelve hours, and we didn't come back until 1:00 in the morning.

The endowment is a gift from God that is a result of a covenant you make in the temple. It involves a series of symbolic rituals and a journey throughout the temple until you end up in the most beautiful room in the temple: the Celestial Room, a similitude of heaven itself in all its wonderous, shining beauty and glory. I made promises and covenants that I never intend to break, and in return, the Lord has promised wonderful blessings. I now have the privilege to wear the holy temple garment, an inward expression of my outward service to God and a reminder of the covenants I made.

I feel in awe of what happened. It feels momentous and life-changing. Most of you guys don't know how important it is to me, and I really don't blame you. It feels like I'm explaining a vacation I went on that you haven't experienced for yourself. But I'm very glad I had that opportunity.

Congrats on having formed a Covenant with the Divine in accordance with your faith.:twilightsmile:

Vacation? Nah, bro. That isn’t how I remember it. That was just the first day of the rest of your life. You don’t do the rites then go home with memories of something you did. You take them everywhere:derpytongue2:

Congrats, dude! It's always amazing when you find your true calling in life, especially if that calling comes from the Lord. Walk with Him, do good to others, and be the man He wants you to be and knows you can be. You can never go wrong with that winning combination. :twilightsmile:

Congrats, Brady!!!

Congratulations!!!!
