(what in the world do i say to that?!)
(to a girl who had lost her father a few years ago)(speaking about enduring through trials)
do you have a testimony of enduring to the end?
yes, i know that even at your lowest point God will help you through and comfort you.
(to one of the timpview basketball and football stars)
how has that helped increase your faith in God?
i know that no matter what happens with basketball or football God always comes first, no matter what. God always comes first, no matter what.
(just last week)

(at the end of each semester)

(i suppose i said the exact same thing to my seminary teachers. karma, its real)
(as we are about to start singing a hymn at the start of class)
(maybe if i pretend it didn't happen, it didn't)

(an email i received the other day from a girl i taught last semester)
bro mckinley guess what!!! im getting sealed to my family on wednesday, can you please be there?
God is so amazing!!!!! and for some reason i got to be there with her and her family.
(a student comes running into class)
i just ran away from my friends who wanted me to sluff seminary, but i came!
(it is hard for me to express how amazing these kids are!)
What a wonderful thing it has been to teach seminary to these amazing youth. it has been the greatest job in the whole world! every day as my kids leave class i yell out look unto Christ in every thought and they yell back doubt not fear not!
Let's stop doubting and look unto Him always.
