Re: Wood burning Fireplace Suggestions

I spent several hours yesterday watching demos on reburner vs catalytic stoves. As well as the longevity of catalytic stoves. I think we're gonna go with the Blaze King. The burn time on low for a catalytic stove is 2-3X that of a reburner. The catalytic doesn't have the pretty flame that the reburn...

That's for sure.
A deeper study of the scriptures reveals the great light and hope that awaits the righteous. When the work of the Father truly commences.

Re: Essay: Where are the Robbers?

The church won't talk about Gadiantons, as they do the bidding of the Gadiantons, leading some to suppose that there are no actual Gadiantons. Kind of like this: Screenshot_20221201-082135_Book of Mormon~2.jpg I had a guy on FB tell me that there was "no sin." Reminded me of Lehi's beauti...

Re: End Times Prophecies

As someone who grew up with an evangelical background, my mom would write stuff like this all the time. And before there was YouTube, she would print and hand hers out.
