Hello and welcome to my new home on the world-wide web – Morsels of Bread.
My name is Keith Brown and I am the founder and administrator of the site. To tell you a little about myself, I am 54 years old, an Administrative Assistant by trade, and a 30-year honorably retired United States Navy Veteran, having been officially discharged from the United States Armed Services on 1 September 2010. I work two jobs – as a paid Remote Writer for the More Good Foundation in Orem, Utah, and as Front Desk Assistant at a wonderful place called the Perfect Pet Resort in Lothian, Maryland.
I am also a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am a convert to the Church, having been baptized on 10 March 1998 in Reykjavik, Iceland while serving on active duty with the United States Navy in Keflavic, Iceland. I have served as: Activities Chairman, Single Adult Representative, Sunday School Teacher (Teens), First Counselor in the Young Men Presidency (Ward Level), a member of the Stake High Council, 2 Bishoprics, High Priest Group Leader, Ward Mission Leader, and I now serve as a Ward Missionary, and as a Stake Public Affairs Representative for the Annapolis Maryland Stake. In my short 15+ years as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ, I have also been blessed to meet several General Authorities of the Church.
I love reading and studying the scriptures and have thus far in my young life read the Bible 9 times in its entirety, the Book of Mormon 9 times in its entirety, and the Doctrine and Covenants and Pearl of Great Price 13 times each in their entirety.
From time to time I like to write articles and essays and share them with family and friends. I also enjoy sharing some of my “words of wisdom” through a compilation of personal quotes that I have come to title “Of Common Sense.” These are the things that I call morsels of bread that I now share with the world. It is my sincere prayer that some of what I post here will be a blessing to those who visit.
I humbly submit that to know what the truth is and to deny it for the sake of pleasing the masses, or for fear of being rejected, or being considered an outcast, is like denying food to one who is hungry, or a drink of water to one who is thirsty, even though you are able to give a morsel of bread to kill their hunger, or a cool drink of water to quench their thirst.
