Taking a Break

I’ve been too busy and too stressed lately to spend much time thinking about writing, so I’m going to take a break for a bit to catch my breath.

A couple of things:

First, I’m seriously considering self-publishing my book (my missionary memoir). I hadn’t wanted to do that, but I’ve changed my mind. So, if you would be interested in purchasing my book, let me know, so I can decide whether there’s enough interest to justify publishing it.

Second, I have to applaud the LDS church’s decision to update its mission statement to include caring for the needy and poor. I’ve been cynical in the past about the purpose of the church, but it really is good that they are increasing the focus on doing good to others. Mormons are wonderful, giving people, for the most part, and adding this emphasis can only make things better.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to everyone. I’ll write again when I have some time.

  1. I’m interesting in giving you money, especially if I can download it onto my Kindle through Amazon.

  4. Reed Manson says:

    It is a very entertaining book. I will give you $20 for a hardbound copy.

    It’s distrubting that the church didn’t view helping the poor as one of its primary purposes previously. Also, I fear that the church will do nothing more than add further workload and financial demands at the ward level and do nothing to use its vast wealth to meet the needs of the poor. We’ll see.

    Of course I’d order a copy. We can write some posts to help promote it on Main Street Plaza as well.
