For Thy Good - Call for Stories

I just began a new project called For Thy Good.

It's a blog about finding purpose in life's trials, with the invitation for anyone and everyone to submit their own stories to share with the world.

I'd like to ask each of you to think about your life... and submit your own stories of faith. What have you learned from the trials of mortality? How has God taught you through life? And how have you been able to find peace and realize that your life was for your good?

The website is

Invite your friends, your family, your neighbors... and anyone you know who has a story of inspiration to share.

My story is the first posted. More will come.


  1. I've been reading your blog for a while, but this is my first time commenting. First let me say that I love your blog, and all the wonderful words of inspiration that you share. I really hope that you are able to find what you're looking for. I recently came across this blog post and thought of you:

  2. I was going to post about the Josh Weed website as well, but it looks like someone beat me to it. I think you should check it out, and I hope it gives you some inspiration. You deserve it!

  3. hah, I was going to post the same link as the first commenter. I've also been reading your blog for quite a few months now, and I love reading it! I don't have ssa, but I have relatives and friends who do. It's nice to be able to read about one person's path. And such a spritual one to boot! Thank you for being so open, and letting the world know your deepest thoughts and feelings. It is inspiring!

  4. hey you've probably already seen this - but if not I thought of your strength as I read it.

    A gay, married, happy, mormon.


    I'm sure you've seen this, but just wanted to share.


    This article was fantastic. I wonder if this is what you are looking for? Obviously I'm not the only person who thought so.

  7. Wow! I instantly thought of you as well when I read the Josh Weed blog. We all love you obviously and are rooting for you!


Comment Rules:

(G)MG is how I write to you. Commenting is one way to write to me.

If you want your comment published: No swearing, graphic content, name-calling of any kind, or outbound links to anything but official Church sites.

In addition, comments must be 100% relevant, funny, uplifting, helpful, friendly... well-written, concise, and true. Disparaging comments often don't meet those standards. Comments on (G)MG are personal notes to me, not part of a comment war. You are not entitled to have your ideas hosted on my personal blog. There are a zillion places for that, and only one (G)MG.

And I'd suggest writing your comment in Word and pasting it. That way Blogger won't eat it if it's over the word limit.
