I See… How Small Things Become Great

Small Things: A Collection of Small Stories that Make a Big Point About Why Small Things Matter.” You can purchase a copy of the book at

Small things matter. Big sacrifices like paying our tithing and completing home teaching assignments contribute to building that big mansion at the end of the cul-de-sac in Heaven, but small acts, like the friendly handshake and the sincere hello, pay for the doorknobs. What good is a palace on high if you can’t use it? The big commandments we keep might get us into Heaven, but the small things will allow us to enjoy our stay there.

About a decade ago I figured out this pattern in my own life, and started documenting the small things in life that mattered; small, simple things like bowling, bagels, and a pair of shoes. The result of that effort is this book.

After you read it, feel free to take a lazy look at your own life and send me stories about the small things in YOUR life that matter. They are everywhere, and I have a sneaking suspicion that the ones we identify are more likely to reappear as doorknobs in our mansions in heaven.
