CASTING MITES

By small and simple means; great things come to pass.

In the spring of 2013, just a handful of months after I returned from full-time missionary service in Brazil for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I started a blog.

Feeling very much like my contributions to the discussion of faith could, at best, be termed small and simple, I named the blog after the widow who, as recounted in the Gospel of Mark, cast two mites into the temple treasury. Her contribution was small enough to be invisible to most of the people there, but it meant a great deal to her and to the One who said that she had "cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasure" (Mark 12:43.

Any representation of me would be incomplete without a representation of my faith. It is the belief that underlies what I try to do and who I try to be. Casting Mites is where I share what I learn on the path of faith, where I have recorded my thoughts in times of triumph and defeat. It is significant to me, and I hope you'll take some time to visit, to find something that may be significant to you too.
