  1. Jayleen,

    I just wanted to say thank you for commenting at my blog. I know that you were the only strong LDS voice there. I’m commenting here because I noticed you haven’t come back. I don’t blame you because I know how hard it is to constantly defend your beliefs. That is one of the reasons I have chosen to stop my blog for a while. I still believe in the Church as a whole. You’re posts helped with that. Thank you.


  2. Thank you for your kind comments. I can say this, that in all my life as a Christian I was never ‘persecuted’ until I embraced the LDS Church. And the persecution has been hard-hitting and unrelenting ever since. Both from without and from within. The adversary is getting more desperate by the day to stop this work because his time is short.

    Never forget the false tales told about Jesus himself and how they tried to pay off the guards to claim His body was stolen. Just because someone says it, doesn’t make it so, I don’t care how much ‘proof’ they claim to have. People had the choice to believe the stories or look to the Spirit. Feed the good and go forth in faith.

    Feel free to email at the addy on this blog any time you have a question.

  3. Dear Jayleen,
    I was born and raised LDS .Although I am not active right now , my testamony I think is stronger than it ever has been. I must say those are the most beautiful pictures of the temple that I have ever seen. My Husband and I met you in Cresent City in July at a farmers market. I dable in photography as well . I’m sure you don’t remember us, but I asked you alot of questions, and loved your horses eye picture. we are from Ft Myers Beach Florida. Kind of funny that your LDS . That doesn’t happen often. Any way I love your art and your web sight. God bless you and Thank you. Zannlyrae

  4. I’m glad you enjoyed my work. And I think I do remember you. I’m also glad you like my Temple shots. I loved photographing the Temple. I like attending it more though. lol

    I miss it. The closest to Crescent City is Medford, OR.

    Anyway, take care and God bless you too!

  5. Wowwwww. That has to be the most beautiful photo of a Temple at night I’ve ever seen. And I collect photos of Temples. This particular photo (Templen in Moonlight…) struck me almost as strongly as the experience I’m going to relate below.

    Please let me suggest a photo, I’d love to see someone with talent of your caliber compose, but let me suggest it by way of explaination.

    When my wife & I were sealed, the only Temple that was less than 2 full days away was the Washington DC Temple. That was great, it is a fantastic place, (as are they all…).

    I’d never been to the DC Temple. We arrived at a hotel after dark the night prior to our Sealing. We had a very early Sealing appoint at the DC Temple, right after the 1st Endowment session, (where my wife was to receive her Endowments). To make our appointments we left the hotel prior to sunrise.

    As the taxi rounded a turn in the road, off on a hillock was the DC Temple. Surrounded by an extremely dense fog, the sun just rising and glinting off Moroni, in gold on top; it looked nestled amongst the clouds. A piece of Heaven set here apart from the World. I must say that my wife and infant son were blessed that we were in a taxi, that I wasn’t driving… I could not tear my eyes off it, and didn’t until rounding a turn trees occluded our view. I have never ever seen a sight as beautiful as that.

    I looked over, and my wife had tears streaming down her cheeks, and she doesn’t cry easily. I am not a weak man, but I feel no shame in saying that my eyes, too, were swimming in tears.

    So I guess that’s what I’m suggesting: the DC temple, at sunrise, surrounded by cloud-like fog.

    Sorry I’m so wordy. Your Temple in Moonlight gave me a similar thrill up my spine, but no tears. Although it came close, I suspect that no photo would move me to that point…

  6. That’s a pretty tall order considering I live in California on the coast almost in Oregon! It’s quite unlikely I would make it to DC.

    It sounds quite breathtaking. I’d love to see it too.

    Thanks for you lovely comments. 🙂

    PS – Could you please give an update at your blog about your father’s health. Your family has been on my mind and in my prayers.
