Rodric believes Moroni included special instruction for Modern times and wants to share his unique perspective the same way Moroni shared in The Book of Mormon.

Today is (((((THE))))) Day!

I have now decided that since my life has changed so much in the last few years I need to put some of those changes out here for the world to view. In doing so, I know that I open up my life to many people to "consider." I am no fool though. I have a wife who will really let me have it if I write the wrong thing, because I have had it so many times in the past.

I just graduated with my master in adult education and want to teach at university, or more realistically, a community college.

What's more is that I enrolled in another degree program! I hesitant to say it, but it is another master degree. This goes against all of my training at the University of Phoenix and my personal philosophy about higher education.

I would never encourage a person to gain a second master degree when there exist doctoral degrees! Standing in the line to have my degree bestowed upon me a fellow alumni called me a career student. I took issue with that label because I have a reason that I decided to do another degree. The only thing is, I based it off personal revelation that may be too special of a nature to put out for the entire public to view at will.

I mention this because I wonder in choosing the right, if we really pay attention to the revelations we get from God and if we understand how to apply those revelations to our current situation without misinterpretation.

 I have learned from personal experience that sometimes the things that God reveals to us may not make sense at the time we open ourselves to the revelation; but in time, if we follow the will of the Lord as did Nephi of old, God's purposes will come to our view.

 So, today is the day that I remember to trust in the Lord by doing all I can to make it and praying like it is all up to God if I make it in the process. I have always been able to succeed that way. Read my articles at
