A little bit about us

Thanks for stopping by to learn a little bit more about us. We are the Hendricks family, and if you're visiting, you may have been personally invited, recieved what we call a "Pass Along Card" from either my wife or myself, or have just happened upon our little corner of the internet. However you found us, we hope that you enjoy your visit here, and know that you were invited here in the spirit of brotherly kindness. If you were invited here, it means we esteem you greatly, and you're important enough to us for us to share with you what has brought us so much joy. My family belongs to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but you probably are more familiar with the term Mormons (which is just fine by us!). I've designed this site to be a place for us to share our experiences, beliefs, and feelings with you, and for you to ask any question that you would like of us.

A new way to strive to be better

I think one of the overriding principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ is to improve ourselves daily. At its most fundamental level, repentance is nothing more than getting rid of habits and attitudes that are detrimental to our salvation, and saying we won't do them anymore. But what do we replace all that negativity with?

A good friend of mine introduced me to what I think is quite a remarkable website called 43things.com. You can make a list of 39 things (just kidding) 43 goals that you would like to attain, write about your experiences, and dish out or recieve encouragement for your goals. Blogging about my goal to read the standard works has done wonders, so I think that this 43things site might be just what the doctor ordered. You can view my 43 things at:


Thanks to Jamie Huston for turning me to this website.
