Something Exquisite

This weekend has been one of the most incredible and memorable weekends of my life. My dear friend and brother, Stephen, returned this week from Australia to be baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He has had a long 10 years searching for truth through philosophy, through secular knowledge, and found himself empty handed while writing his doctoral dissertation. He has totally changed his life for what he has discovered to be real Truth. Being with him and witnessing this total transformation has completely encouraged my conviction for my faith and what i believe.


It was so thrilling to have Meredith drive down from Rochester to be at Stephen's baptism.
