Zion or bust.

I've been reading the book, They who Tarry by R Clayton Brough. It's been sitting on the book shelf for years.

In conversation with my nieces a few nights ago, they asked questions about the church that they sought answers to and for two hours, I answered their questions the best I could and, I know it made a difference.

At 14 years old, they didn't know that obedience was the first law in Heaven despite they'd probably sung it several times via the 3rd AoF.

It's an awesome book and since I started reading it, I've found so many things that I need to change in order to simply be a better, happier person.

In the minds of so many members of the church ignorant to the reality of life in Utah, Utah really is the example of Zion, but that's far from the truth. Enoch made his own Zion and he did such a great job at it that his Zion was removed completely from the Earth and exists in a terrestrial state somewhere close.

Create your Zion where you are.

You don't need to go to Utah. You don't need to go to where things may hypothetically seem better. You don't need to run from problems because they'll just reappear wherever you go if left unaddressed.

If you are not content where you are, you haven't exhausted all efforts to try. If you are content in your own shoes, exactly where you are, then you are already there.
