Any opinions expressed on this website, or any website related to Yzena, are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for my relatives or my church.

If anything on this website contradicts something that has been said or written by the Prophet, his counselors, members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, or any other General Authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, they are right, and I am wrong, so please contact me, provide a source, and I will take down the offending material and issue a correction.
