  1. I don’t think you realize this, but you are a pretty amazing person. Thank you for your posts because honestly I have been through this same thing and its tough but I promise in the end its worth it and personally when I decided to turn my heart over to the lord and let people back into my life and my heart, I felt the love of the savior helping me out. Im not implying you shut people out ha I was just sayin in my case thats why I needed a bit of TLC from him.

  2. Hi, I am just an old mother, but I wanted to tell you how very impressed I am with you. You are learning and growing and becoming the Son your Father in Heaven intended you to become. I enjoy reading your posts. They are filled with some really inspiring thought provoking substance. Thank you for sharing of yourself with us, the public. I know it’s never easy to put yourself out there like this but I hope you realize that you are helping others to understand they are not alone in their struggles; we all have one another, but even more so, we have a loving Father in Heaven and his Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ, to help us get through the hard times. I hope you keep writing and sharing, it’s like a breath of fresh air to read such honest, open, gospel filled posts. I wanted you to know that on more than one occassion, your posts have helped my daughter who has gone through some of the very things you have, on her journey; to have hope and to know that even though her life isn’t always going to go according to her plan, that in the end, things will be just as they should be. Wish there were more men out there like you. It seems, even in the church, these days there are less and less.
    Again, thank you for your inspiring words and for giving hope to so many as they go through their own personal struggles.

  3. “I naturally have an open heart to anyone who wants to share with me… and there is something about me where people can tell I am not judgmental and so they open up to me.” Amen! I feel you on that one. Many many people have opened up to me…I know its just a part of who I am. I love people so much…maybe why I love reading your blog. I feel like I just got a meaningful talk (and its not even sunday morning) Dream on friend…dream on. I do wish that your dreams unfold shortly so that you will write/share with us. I always love a good love story or life story really. Thanks for all of your words/insight. (btw, I met a girl who met your sister when they were interviewing/screening girls for the mormon bachelor stuff. Small world. I was talking about your blog to her and pulled up a picture you had posted and she was suprised and told me the story of talking to your sister and talking about you..just strange and funny how far your influence has gone 🙂 you think?)

  4. Too add on to the quote from Gordon B. Hinckley, I’d include “compare-ers do not gain.” I think it’s very easy to compare yourself to others. I often find myself scrolling through my FB newsfeed and I catch myself — when you only see that, it seems like everyone else has a charmed life: engagements, weddings, births, vacations. It can start to feel isolating and if/when you are struggling with something, it can easily feel like “why me?” But, in truth, everyone has a battle they have faced, are facing, or will face. Just because we don’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t that person’s reality. It’s just really tough when it IS your reality — whether it’s heartache, sickness, or another type of challenge. I like how you ended this post: with hope in Christ. Remembering that is part of the challenge, but it can also be what alleviates the stressors.

  5. Love your blog. Just know that your journey is unfolding exactly as it should be. Sometimes it doesn’t seem like it is, but I know that it’s true. You never know what Heavenly Father has in mind for us but it’s always something greater than our own plans. Love reading your insights.

  6. I have to say Kent. I really don’t like your white horse analogy. You say your tired of women who allow other men from their past to keep them from seeing the good in the great guy that wants to be their future. You seem to want a strong, self assured, independent, Christ loving woman. Well, she’s not the one waiting for the white horse. She’s the one who handles her own problems. She’s not waiting around for her knight to start her life, she living it now. Yes, she needs to be willing to open her heart and her life when that guy comes along. But in saying you want to be the rescuer you are saying you want a woman who needs to be rescued- and ultimately I don’t think that is the woman who you are looking for. As evidenced by your lack of success in past relationships.
    The woman you want works her butt off and looks to Christ to make up the difference. She doesn’t find her value in what a man thanks of her. She’s out there kicking life’s butt. Now get out there and find her. I promise she’s not waiting for you but she will be quite pleased to share the rest of eternity with you. Best of luck!
