I’m one of the ones that went through the whole podcast, we definitely need another three hours.
Thank you for sharing your faith journey…
More, please! Great information and wit.
I was there for that first conference. If I recall, wasn’t there a bird or rabbit that came into the rooms there at Alta?
In any case, I finally got to meet Lord Kerry. I also got the call from LDS Family Services that my wife and I were to adopt. He’s 20 now. And my life is quite a bit different than I imagined on that day having gone through my own issues in 2011.
Having Kerry change his mind was quite a surprise to me, but I do recall his reading some book that he called devastating to the apologetic cause.
