Dealing with Boy Scouts of America and the latest verdict.

It seems that the Boy Scouts of America has made a verdict to allow gay boys in, though still hold the ban on gay adults.  Boy Scouts of America has been a great program to allow boys to learn about the world, themselves, religion, community, nature, self-worth, etc. 

Its obvious that some groups would not be happy with that decision to allow some gay boys instead of lifting the whole ban entirely or keeping the ban to not allow gay boys/adults at all.  To say I was one of those people that was against to allow gay boys into the BSA.  Though over time I have thought about it and contemplated and realized that there are just as human as I am and should be allowed to participate in Boy Scouts, whereas I do agree not to allow gay adults in.  It is geared more to those who are 16 and younger. 

I know this is a touchy topic to where some void talking about it.  Not talking about is not going to make the problem go away.  This issue will effect all of us when it comes into affect on January 1, 2014. 

If one does have any comments please be considerate of others that may read it.  This is solely by myself and has no connection with the LDS church.

Men and Women dress modestly!

Summer is here and sometimes people like to have layer of clothes to thin for the body and like to show more skin then needs to be.  It drives me crazy to see guys working on the yard or jogging down the street with no shirt on.  It makes me want to throw a bucket of water on them and saying, "Hey put on a shirt, will you please?"  Yeah the guy looks handsome looking, but they can still do what they are doing with a shirt on instead of having it taken off! 

Here are some pictures that show how we should dress.  Not to say that as men to go around wearing dress shirt and tie and women going around wearing dresses like its Sunday everyday, but enough that its best to not show much skin instead to show more clothing and less skin.  You can wear swim wear just try to pick the clothing that shows less skin and more clothing.  That goes for both men and women!

Go out and serve a mission.

Being a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is a great deal.  I served my mission when I was 20 years of age.  I went to serve in Houston East Texas.  It was hard at first though over time with the help of the Lord I was able to forget about home and went to work for the Lord. 

I planted lot of seeds throughout my mission.  Some I was able to baptize while others only teaching them the gospel and having someone baptize them.  One person I baptized was a teenager.  He read the whole Book of Mormon, got baptized shortly after, was given the priesthood and then a year later went on to serve a LDS mission up in New York, NY.   I am glad that I went to serve for the Lord for two years to my brothers and sisters.

Now that I'm older and am glad to see my younger relatives go on a mission and seeing them spreading the word of God is great.  Down the road when I feel along with my wife, as my companion, to serve another mission by serving the Lord where he needs the both of us to serve our fellow brothers and sisters.
