    Vai, this column brought back sweet memories of some of the stories you'd tell when Sister Lawton and I served in New Jersey almost five years ago. Anyway, my hero was my bishop when I was twenty, Gale Holmes of the Council Bluffs Ward, Winter Quarters Stake. He was so patient and loving as I struggled with my decision: Get my parents out of this cult or get in with both feet.
    Thanks in large part to his personal attention and amazing intellect, I actually put aside all the anti-Mormon stuff I'd focused on and read the Book of Mormon. Well, we all know how that story ends, right?

    Oh man, Vai. It is with pleasure that I see a new post from you. I try to read slow and savor every word.

    Good work.

    I generally cry and laugh a little as I read these and today was no exception- thanks for sharing
