**********************************************************

All he wanted was to fly. A teenage pilot with an itchy throttle hand, a DaVinci-esque knack for sketching, and four generations of aeronautical heritage can’t wait to manifest his passionate aversion to the ground. He sees every hard earned dollar as a tick on the Hobbs meter. Every unencumbered swath of dirt is a potential landing strip, legal or not.

His head literally in the clouds over airplanes and girls, the young Aviator can’t take a hint. Oblivious to the opportunities and history right under his nose, his jaunts over the Cascade Mountains of Washington State to fly 1940s era taildraggers at Evergreen Field land him in the company of local aviation legend, Wally Olson.

Three decades later, the reminiscent Aviator gets 20/20 vision from Dr. Hindsight.

Christmas Message from my Brother

 photo salt-lake-city-mormon-temple-72dpi-580x387_zpsf0a50bf3.jpg

Merry Christmas.

Please join me in remembering the birth, life, and sacrifice of our savior, Jesus Christ. He lived a sinless life. He forgave sinners. He loved his enemies. His is the perfect example of righteousness and living peaceably with others.

He taught us to esteem our neighbors as ourselves. He taught us to pray saying, “Our Father, which art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:9-10)

Old Testament prophets such as Daniel, looked to the future with hope. They knew of Christ’s birth; that His sacrifice would fulfill the Law of Moses. Prophets of old new that after His death and resurrection, God would continue to call prophets and apostles to reveal His secrets to them.

The Prophet Amos declared, “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secrets to his servants the prophets.” (Amos 3:7)

In his mortal life Jesus established his church and kingdom on the earth. He led his church and kingdom with the Apostles and Prophets who he called and ordained. They willingly followed him and also taught His gospel.

After the death of Christ, Peter led the church with the other apostles of Christ by divine revelation and with the same priesthood and authority that Christ had. Peter and the other prophets and apostles eventually died or were put to death. Revelation from God to those that He authorized to act in his name regarding the administration of His church, was lost.

Divine revelation and priesthood authority truly was lost. For Centuries good people strived to live as closely to the example of Jesus Christ as they could, but without prophets and apostles to write the teachings of the Resurrected Lord, many changes to His gospel were made and many vital truths were lost.

Religious confusion lead to persecution, doubts and death of many who desired to believe in Christ.

Several centuries passed. From around 100 AD to the early 1800s AD, the world lacked the church and Kingdom of God that Jesus organized while he lived in mortality. But in the early 1800s, religious revival lead to the restoration of the church and Kingdom of God on earth today.

In answer to a sincere prayer of faith in Christ to know which church to join, God the Eternal Father, and His beloved Son, who was born in Bethlehem and sacrificed on Calvary’s Hill, appeared to a young boy named Joseph Smith. This divine appearance continued to prove the words of Amos to be true.

The authority to act in the name of God with divine revelation was again restored to the earth. Through this renewed revelation and divine priesthood authority, Jesus Christ restored his church and kingdom again on the earth.

The revelation to the prophet Daniel, who foresaw and foretold the establishment of the kingdom of God, never again to be destroyed (Daniel 2:44) started to come true when God the Father and Jesus Christ once more began to reveal their secrets unto their servants the prophets (Amos 3:7).

Daniel’s vision continues to be true. With the establishment of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by divine revelation to the prophet Joseph Smith, Jesus Christ has again invited us to come unto him, to no more be strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and household of God (Ephesians 2:19).

His household and kingdom, which we are invited to attend, is his church: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Jesus Christ, who was born in Bethlehem, who died on the cross at Calvary and rose again; He lives. He loves us. The nearer we draw to him, the happier we will become.

Again, may God bless you and your loved ones in this Christmas season, and for all times and places that you may be in.

Sincerely,

Alex LaVanway

Merry Christmas Everyone!

 photo MangerSceneCarlBlochTheBirthofJesus72dpi580x550_zps116058a3.jpg

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

Last Sunday, I was looking at a picture of Baby Jesus in the hallway at Church. I pondered how amazing it is that the innocent child laying in a manger 2,013 years ago is the Creator of this earth and countless earths like this one.

The Creator of numberless worlds, lying in a manger, embarking on His divine mortal mission to save all of His Father’s children who kept their first estate. A newborn baby, fully aware of every soul and every need and every endeavor, everywhere.

Mere hours prior, he had communicated to the prophet, Nephi on the opposite side of the planet, assuring Nephi that the day had come when the sign of His birth in Bethlehem would be given. A day and a night and a day as if there were no night.

And we get to live on this very earth to which Christ came to complete His atonement. We are privileged beyond what we can comprehend. This earth is His footstool. He has countless articles of furniture in His Kingdom, yet He placed his mortal feet upon this earth. How can we forget?

When Lyn sets off on her supposedly uncomplicated and unromantic cruise, she never dreams it will include pirates. All the 25-year-old Colorado high school teacher wants is to forget that her dead fiancé was a cheating scumbag. What she plans is a vacation diversion; what fate provides is Braedon, an intriguing surgeon. She finds herself drawn to him: his gentle humor, his love of music, and even his willingness to let her take him down during morning karate practices. Against the backdrop of the ship’s make-believe world and its temporary friendships, her emotions come alive.

However, fear is an emotion, too. Unaware of the sensitive waters he navigates, Braedon moves to take their relationship beyond friendship–on the very anniversary Lyn came on the cruise to forget. But Lyn’s painful memories are too powerful, and she runs off in a panic.

Things are bad enough when the pair finds themselves on one of the cruise’s snorkeling excursions in American Samoa. However, paradise turns to piracy when their party is kidnapped. Lyn’s fear of a fairytale turns grim. Now she must fight alongside the man she rejected, first for their freedom and then against storms, sharks, and shipwreck.

No Second Chances. Death, Life, or Love—Unbounded Always Play for Keeps.

There are only two ways to kill Unbounded, and fire isn’t one of them—as law school dropout Erin Radkey learns the hard way. By fluke of a recessive gene, she has become Unbounded, a nearly immortal being with paranormal abilities.

Erin’s Change separates her from her loved ones and alters everything she believes to be true. A week earlier she was considering a marriage proposal; now she contemplates the best way to stay alive. Caught in a battle between two Unbounded groups, the Emporium and the Renegades, she is also hunted by a secret mortal society sworn to eradicate the Unbounded gene.

As Erin plunges into this dangerous new life, she must carve out her own place in the madness, protect her mortal family, and decide which group she should join. Her unique ability is vital to both groups in the race to secure an identification software that spells death for all Unbounded—or enslavement for the entire mortal world. Some will stop at nothing to use Erin as one more pawn in a battle that has spanned centuries. Erin’s undeniable attraction to Ritter Langton, whose family was massacred by opposing Unbounded two hundred and forty years ago, complicates her choices. There are no second chances. Death, life, or love—Unbounded always play for keeps.

Non-stop action, terrifying consequences, and powerful romance make The Change an exciting addition to the world of romantic urban fantasy.

Confessions of a 16-Year-Old Virgin Lips (Episodes 1-3)
by Cindy M. Hogan

Regular price $3.99 Sale price: 99¢ Click here to purchase!

The first 3 Episodes of Confessions of a 16-Year-Old Virgin Lips in one book!
“First Kiss”
VL. Virgin Lips. You may not have heard of it, but where I live, it’s a thing with a card, even if it is a figurative card. I was Brooklyn Hamlin, certified virgin lips, and I planned on clinging to that figurative card with all I had–while dating as many of the hottest guys at school as I could.

Maybe that’s a bit strange. I mean, what teenage girl isn’t interested in kissing? Locking lips definitely interested me, but the drama that came with it didn’t. No kissing, no drama. Simple.

But on my sixteenth birthday, on my first real date even, the drama found me. His name was Luke Graham–cute, funny, and bad news for the whole female race.

“Stolen Kiss”
With my VL card gone, my flickering light of hope lay with Ryker, someone else who’d caught my eye. Only he could erase the memory of Luke, the boy who lip-raped me. Unfortunately, Luke was determined to keep me, or at the very least, ruin me.

“Rebound Kiss”
Brooklyn has become a social outcast at school thanks to Luke, who spent his entire weekend playing the victim and spreading rumors. And there’s nothing worse than Luke’s brand of justice. With no other way to escape her torn up, lonely life, she accepts an invitation to her cousin’s birthday party. Attending a party thrown by someone she doesn’t get along with is better than sitting home alone. The highlight of the party is meeting Riley, a boy who’s sweeter than the plate of sugar cookies he arrives with. After everything Brooklyn has been through, it seems that karma is finally on her side, but she soon learns that nothing is ever simple in the dating world.

Then she meets Shade, a slave of a cruel and power-hungry Aos Si.

A sudden twist of fate throws them into an even colder world, where their only chance for survival is a couple who is childless by choice—Daniel and Cristina Andrade.

Daniel Andrade has put his bitter past behind him and found a new life with Cristina. But the past returns in force when Miguel steals his wallet on the ferry, throwing into motion a series of unstoppable events. Daniel doesn’t want to face the secrets of the past or open his heart to anyone—yet that is exactly what he must do or face losing everything he loves.

Cristina Andrade also has secrets. Now she must choose between her husband and the deep longing in her heart. Or is there a compromise? Only Miguel can help them find the way—and time for Miguel is running out. Can the Savior’s love heal them all before it’s too late?

Katelyn Palmer never believed any harm could come from using her college crush as the hero in her first romance novel—the novel that jumpstarted her writing career. However, when Shane Hunter storms into town, demanding to meet the writer who used his identity, Katelyn is confronted with more than her long, silent emotions. If Shane takes her to court for invasion of privacy, her career would be over.

Shane doesn’t know how to act when his ex sister-in-law accuses him of having an affair while he was married—and then shows him the romance book as proof. Now he wants to know who this author really is and why she used his name and most of the events in his life for her story. Desperate to know the truth Shane befriends Katelyn but he does not expect to be attracted to her, even more unexpected is the joy he finds watching his twins fall in love with the woman who is stealing his heart, too…

Pretty Near Perfect by Jolene Perry
The last thing Norah needs is to be attracted to anyone – especially in her deceased fiancé’s parents’ home. Collin’s starting a new career, and has no business getting involved – especially while staying with his roommate’s family, who very kindly offered to take him in for the holidays. Unfortunately, you just don’t always pick the most convenient time and place to fall for someone.

Six Days of Christmas by Kaylee Baldwin
When Natalie goes home with her best friend for Christmas, she expects plenty of quiet time to work on a winning ad so she can turn her dream internship into her dream job. Instead, she gets time-consuming Christmas festivities, a house full of children, and Jimmy, her best friend’s brother – someone who makes her question everything she’s always thought she wanted.

Twist of Fate by Rachael Anderson
When a postcard meant for Kenzie winds up in Ty’s mailbox, Ty’s faced with a decision. Should he tell her that her fiancé is breaking up with her and let it ruin her favorite holiday, or should he do what he’s wanted to do since he met her – make a move and hope that he can win her over before she discovers there won’t be a wedding after all?

Enjoy!
