During His ministry, as the Lord traveled to Galilee, he stopped at Jacob’s well, where he paused to drink.  There too had come a woman from Samaria, to whom Jesus spoke, saying “…whosover drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life”   (John 4:14).

The mighty Helaman taught his son’s that “…it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation… a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall” (Helaman 5:12).

Let us build our foundations upon the Savior, and envelop ourselves in the doctrine and power of the Lord.

    I keep a photography blog ( – I just started it), and thought that I’d use some of the photos I take to create inspirational images which I’d use here on Ongofu.

    If you think of better text, let me know and I’ll create a new version!

    Otherwise, I hope you enjoy.

    This is a wonderful blog
    I like to summarize inspiring talks
    into poems- And I can tell by the way you write that you write poems

    Great Reservoirs of Spiritual Water

    Great reservoirs of spiritual water
    Have been safeguarded for us to partake
    We hear the words of Heavenly Father
    And feel of His love which does not forsake

    He’ll nourish us from a living fountain
    And give us what’s vital in constant sips
    Water’s the purest in a high mountain
    Where also flows what’s from the prophets lips

    For profit and learning and correction
    When we’re spiritually fed we will not thirst
    To overcome sin and change direction
    We must draw daily from the water first

    When we’re saturated, there’s a cleansing
    To wet our appetites, we add fasting
    With increased focus, there’s more we can see
    There is a joy that is everlasting

    We have a keystone to our religion
    And we need not dilute what’s been sent pure
    The Book of Mormon can answer each deep question
    We’ll dare not go beyond, to stay secure

    When we’ve problems too great for human strength
    A quiet hour spent in meditation
    Helps us tune in with God, He’s close at length
    And, we have faith without hesitation

    We’ve a well of water that’s springing up
    And from this high source, we can clearly see
    To atone for us, Jesus filled his cup
    He’ll help us repent and much cleaner be

    Your poetry is wonderful. Have you published any? If not, you should. There is nothing like poetry to touch the heart.
