Welcome to Navigating Discipleship
Sharing our thoughts from our life of discipleship
There are many forces in this world that help or harm families. Do we recognize them?
The mind gives us logic, dogma, creeds, and beliefs. The heart gives us love, service, relationships, and covenants. Balancing these becomes the work of discipleship.
I believe the Book of Mormon was specifically written for the modern world. We all need it's profound message to come unto Christ.

Let us come together to see the glorious plan God has in store for all of us, just as the picture and poem above so beautifully illustrates two different women unified in the common cause of Christ.
I think the Spirit of God teaches us truth and beauty. And when we seek the people and things in this world that are true and beautiful, we will find God.
God's forgiveness is real. It is necessary, and it's available to everyone, even me.
The gospel of Jesus Christ certainly is simple, but its application is complex and robust enough to address the diversity of everyone who applies it.
