About

I decided to create this blog to document many of the better things I come across. In addition, I was finding I was forwarding lots of emails to my family and friends so I thought this would be a better method than spamming. What you will see on this blog are things that I find interesting.

About me: I’m a news junkie. I love reading a wide variety of things. I have a special interest on the economy and financial things. I’m from the Pacific Northwest. I enjoy sports. I love good, clean humor – as a result you will see a good amount of humor on here. Politically I most closely align with Republicans – although after the 2008 election cycle I came to realize that I am most influenced by financial conservatism.  I am an active member of the LDS (aka Mormon) church.  Although most of the posts won’t be religious – I will have religious/church-related things on separate pages.

Why did I choose the name Zenoch? Who knows. I could have used my own name which is unique. I was looking for a name that is uncommon so that I wouldn’t have many web conflicts. In the Book of Mormon it talks about two little known prophets from Old Testamant times in the Bible whose names were Zenos and Zenock. So I chose the latter. It wasn’t until later that I realized I mis-spelled the name and used an ‘h’ instead of a ‘k’. (Just to be clear – I certainly do not think I am on any level, any way,  shape or form close to being a prophet. I just like the name.)

  1. I too am a “mormon” and I love your website. I am really enjoying the 25 days of Christmas stories. I found the article under interesting things written by Heber Q Hale very interesting and moving. Thanks and have a very Merry Christmas!

  2. I wanted to use some of these stories in sacrament meeting however I can not get them to print or even email them to myself. Do you have any suggestions as to how I can make this happen/

    1. Copy and Paste works. I just tried it.

      Highlight all the text. Copy it. Then in Word or some other application – Paste it.

  3. Interestingly, research on the original manuscript of the Book of Mormon suggests that Zenoch really should be spelt with an ‘h.’ However, a scribal error changed it to a ‘z.’

    1. Also – if I were to follow exactly what the BoM has – it would be Zenock or corrected per your comment Henock. Oh well….

  4. Still looking for the story about a Down syndrome boy saving his money to buy his brother Jimmy a watch for Christmas

  5. I have a Christmas blog and am constantly looking for stories. this years theme is on service at Christmas time. I was touched by your story, A big Brother’s Gift, and would like to include it in one of this year’s blogs. Will providing a link to your site be sufficient Documentation of the story?

    1. I don’t claim ownership or authorship for any of the stories. These are stories that mostly my wife has found and collected over the years. You can certainly provide a link, but I am not the author and thereby have no authority to give approval for it.

  6. I have a copy of the story you call “Birthday” given by one of the Logan Temple Presidencies’ wives yesterday (December 19, 2018), except it has a few more sentences at the end. Her story was entitled “Anniversary.” She found it in a book her mother gave her last year before passing away.
