*Richardson Studies

Richardson Studies is a public library of book summaries, lecture highlights, full texts, quotation compilations, scientific research, & philosophy. Each booklet functions like a journal collection of important findings which don’t need to be read in order. Highly detailed tables of contents in each booklet make for short easy reading.

This project started shortly after I returned from my church mission and has been lots of fun.

I take notes when I read a book or listen to a lecture and share them here. When those notes are extensive, I get the author’s permission before sharing, and I’ve been blessed to cooperate with many authors and speakers to share their work on this site.

I also like to compile quotes by topic, and of course, the occasional ranting of how I see things, hopefully in line with the prophets, expounding in the direction they are headed.

I’m a temple going, active, missionary-minded latter-day saint, and intend to remain such. This said, writings here can be useful to people of many different faith backgrounds, and I have deep respect for anyone who seeks God and truth.

At times I’ve had to push myself to go public with some of my writings as some topics are controversial. Other topics I’ve not yet shared as my study of them is in progress and or they are subjects I don’t think people would appreciate. But generally speaking, I feel excited and blessed to find what I have, and to have a platform to share it with others. I feel that what I’ve shared is entirely appropriate & important. I’ve made every effort to be bold without compromise or being overbearing.

I share all of my writing here free of cost. It’s available in blog posts or as downloads of master documents I’m working on. These are always in progress, and from time to time I upload the latest version. I try to put dates on documents and essays to help inform readers of new content. I often publish a blog post on a subject of particular interest, but most of my writing is found in the books available for download.

I’ve structured my writing into small essays with a detailed table of contents for easy reading. No particular order is needed in the readings either: just jump to the essay that catches your eye, and you’re off! I also try and get some audio recordings out here and there.

A tiny bit on my background – I’m from Utah and have been blessed with a large happy family. I’ve worked in business, construction, healthcare, foster care, and education. I spent many years at BYU exploring the world of education, and though my campus days are over, I’m a dedicated student every day.

Recently in connection with my job as a schoolteacher and my correspondence with Dean Sessions, I’ve been giving lectures supporting his revolutionary creation science texts called “Universal Model” at the Book of Mormon Evidence conferences hosted by Rod Meldrum.

I write on a broad spectrum of topics and seek the religious worldview as my compass on how I see things. I believe truth is out there, and that it can’t be had in its fullness when we only look through a secular lens.

I don’t expect a large audience for my writing, and trust those who aren’t ready for it won’t be much interested, and those who are will be blessed to stumble upon it. I don’t call for a following or anything like that.

When it comes to seeking truth, this is one of my favorite quotes: “When we understand the character of God, and know how to come to Him, he begins to unfold the heavens to us, and to tell us all about it. When we are ready to come to him, he is ready to come to us.” – Joseph Smith

God’s blessings to you in your studies and your life!
