|Introduction||I was born and raised in northern Utah during the mid-Twentieth Century, the fifth of six children. (In fact, I was the youngest child for 12 years.) After high school, I enrolled at Brigham Young University where I received a BS in journalism seven years later. My journalism career was short lived, as I spent the next nine years working first as a genealogist, then as a college instructor. Then I attended the University of Idaho law school, where I earned my JD degree. Though I was admitted to the Utah bar, I opted for employment with the Genealogical Dept. of the LDS Church. In 1981 I was transferred to the Temple Department, where I retired as a director in 1999. I love the scriptures, both to study and to teach them. I taught them at Ricks College in the 1960s and 70s and at the Santa Barbara Institute of Religion as a missionary with my wife in 2000 and 2001. Back in Utah in 2002, I became obsessed with the notion of writing Bible stories from a Latter-day Saint viewpoint, which was the beginning of my new book, "How Often Would I Have Gathered You."|
