My Story- How my life mission unfolded .... a mission to return to the simple ways of God in preparation for the second coming

After repeated promptings from the spirit in 2017 to proclaimed this work...... here is my story and some of the preparations and added witnesses of this work.

  •  I was born in 1956 in California, raised with a do it yourself Catholic DAD, and a mother  that promised the priest she would raise us Catholic in exchange for being able to be married in the Catholic Church. Though not Catholic she kept her promise and raised me Catholic. She also  taught me the importance of honesty and  work. Though my mother and I grew to be good friends, her daily astrology interests were not the connection I made with my Jewish stepmother. My Jewish mother  Joyce and I connected in spiritual matters, and we shared a connection and language that was beyond religious traditions.
  • My step sister Ann said. : Joyce felt great concern for humanity, and valued creating a more humane and supportive world where needs can be met non-violently. My mother had a kindness and generosity of spirit that will be greatly missed. I am thankful for all she brought to life, and for all she taught me. (here ) 
  • .On my grandfathers side, the Tripps, there were relatives  that impressed me that they  -sold their homes to help fund the voyage to America (John Rogers, Mayflower descendent). I had learned of them when I was considering selling a home we just remodeled to become pioneers in education.... pioneers in that I was given  in 1989,  a vision of a school or learning center...that I was to remodel. An east and west building that would be connected. Years later we found two old garages as seen in this vision. They were zoned for a school. I share that detail ...because throughout my career, the Lord would impress to me that homes and buildings reflect peoples behavior and beliefs. 
  • About then years after this school vision in 1989, we completed the renovation in 1998 , and soon after my former wife had a visitation from the spirit world to adopt a child from China. The visitation came four time one evening, in 1999. Before going into that story. ...let me share some early history of my life. 
  • Sometime around the age of 10, my aunt died and I grieved her passing - as she was like a mother to me. I promised God I would do whatever he wanted me, even be a priest in the Church....if I could just know what Church to join. I knew God would not make it difficult to find truth and felt somehow he would make his will and teachings understandable for children.  The idea that spirituality or the journey of life  was simple seemed to be in my soul very early.  It would be a few years later that I would be guide to get to know a girl in my history class, Sue Wiley , who introduced me to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when in high school. 
  • I was small for my age and played high school football for several years with those much larger. I learned not to fear the big guys. We went un-scored on for most the season. When asking myself what I learned in high school just before graduation, I had reflected on how I learned the great power of teamwork in sports. I was awarded-  with four others - life time passes to athletic events for my contributions to the athletic program. I was certainly not the best athlete, but I worked hard and enjoyed it greatly.  My coaches and team members would become my family in high school after my parents divorced. One of my  track coaches would in time teach me the gospel - inviting me to seminary in the morning before school. An english teacher would introduce Les Miserable to me my junior year, - bringing me and understanding of the power of mercy - changing my life and leading to a life where we would raise 12 children and more... a mix of biological, adopted, and foster children. 
  • I  enjoyed learning from many religions during my high school years - studying both eastern and western religions- looking for simple common roots. In some ways they seemed they same, yet a quote about Christ and Buddha struck me. Buddha died seeking the truth, Christ died saying he was the truth. I needed to know, who Jesus Christ was and asked a friend for a book. The gave me  Jesus the Christ by James Talmage..as one of the first religious books I ever read.  
  • Near that time, the Book of Mormon was placed in my hand, and the moment it was placed in my hand, the spirit witnessed to me it was from God. I thought --how can I feel such power when I have not read the book yet.  The Elders explained the pre-mortal world and that made sense to me - as I felt I was being reminded of something I already knew and I felt an unusually strong connection with the Prophet Joseph Smith.  I felt I knew him closely before this life. 
  •  In 1973  when reading the last chapter in the Bible for the first time, I was taken to the spirit world and shown - in panorama form -  how the entire Book of Revelation was simple. I was in wonder and awe, "what is happening to me", I asked. I was not able to share in words all I was given - just a small portion, but remembered the feeling from this extraordinary experience all my years. and how years later ...all truth coming into one whole simple vision was made clear. 
  • In a simple and heavenly way, I  learned, that as the coming of Jesus Christ gets closer, those that trust in the financial systems of the world will separate their way of life or trust, from and trust in the simple ways of God. 
  • In about 1978 I was told by others at a church talk by a husband and wife team, that they were told by the spirit -before the meeting  - that at some time in the future a man whose name was like the "House of David" would start  a movement worldwide to bring people back to the simple ways of God. They told the group he would start this movement when traveling from one state to another at some time in the future. I did not say anything, and I thought, my name means small house of David in Italian, but that could not be for someone as ordinary and obscure as me. I quietly left the meeting  and I entirely forgot the experience. A few years later I got married in 1980. It would be thirty years later, with  nine children,  (four adopted from China) when  I would be given names for these organizations and when these memories would  came back to me. In 2010,  the spirit returned these to my memory.  It was in 2010, while on a family history vacation to California from Utah when I was given the names for this work. 
  • As another witness, back in 1978, during the end of my mission to Washington DC- I get into a head on accident. I had not listened to a prompting to not go out that night as I wanted  to  please a family we were teaching  more than God. I learned to put promptings from God  first and respond to them. Over thirty stitches later on the left  half my face - I am beyond recognition, but seem to heal quickly - back to work in about 3 days.  During these previous months I was eating whole foods and prompted to  listen to my body and it that I could know what I needed. I  found I healed quickly. I have repeatedly sensed this mission was a pattern for the rest of my life, and for some reason -felt repeatedly - my death or end of  my mortal mission - will come in some war in the last days. When I asked God why I was given this repeated impression, through the years, I felt the impression come that is was so I would not  fear death, but live life -  knowing that I would be protected to accomplish the purposes I was sent here for.
  • In about 1977 seeking a witness of what Priesthood is and wanting my own personal testimony,  I am awakened one night by the spirit and for several hours, D&C 121 streams into my mind and heart like pure intelligence or in todays terms - downloading of pure information. 
  • For the last months of my mission, I feel as Nephi described --the love of God unto the consuming of my flesh, --and I grow to appreciate the life of Joseph Smith, I feel an unusually powerful connection to teaching women and see the tests of life.. ever more and feel the power of the  Book of Mormon. I learn women teaching their children  feel the spirit and a greater fullness of the gospel and the reason many men do  not receive a fullness of the spirit - is they are pulled into the ways of the world and thinking of the world in their way of making a living. Many do not feel the importance of seeking Gods will for what they are provided and truly trusting him. I feel when we live the Gospel quietly we just become like a magnet to others seeking truth and we will be drawn to all we need in righteousness. A girl I baptize is draw to me and says she wants to marry me, and I call the mission president as she is violating rules about contacting missionaries. I expect to get transferred. The President says he knows what kind of missionary I am and trusts me to stay in the area. My mission soon ends, and I felt to seek the Lord's guidance for my career choices and find he does guide me. 
  • I am guided to a job at the Oakland temple - working my way through college doing an energy management study on the temple and developing compost and edible gardens for the temple staff. They save millions over time- with our energy management project  and I learn valuable skills.
  • After study at  universities as Cal Poly, UC Berkeley,  Antioch and BYU with the unfolding of my career, I kept getting direction from God, to leave one job after another - as if being prepared for some important work, I have very successful business experiences working with councils of employees, leading significant changes with the teams-everywhere I work- just using openness and honestly to guide our councils. 
  • On a trip through the Salt Lake Temple around 1980, I feel impressed that I will work in Salt Lake and work on a historical building at some time in the future- but not the Salt Lake temple.
  • In 1989, I receive a powerful answer to prayer to leave my job running a college facilities program and move from California to Utah. I did not want to live in Utah so I was sure that was one reason for the strong impression. The California earthquake comes the day after I resign my career position. 
  • In 1993, after teaching in public schools for several years, I feel to  pursue graduate studies helping to develop part time family centered schools to support home schoolers (at BYU in 1994) - respecting parents as the primary educators of children- and fostering more bonds of love and trust between parents and children.  
  •  My former wife,  born the 15 of May,  the day the Aaronic Priesthood was restored, a descendent of Asael Smith - Joseph's grandfather, through the Jesse. N. Smith line. She  said in 1993, she felt strong impressions to use the Smith trust funds to support this work at BYU for about 7 years from 1993 to 2000. In 1997, we find a site for our  lab school and finish construction. It is next to the LDS motion picture studio. She felt promoted to use the generous funds we been entrusted with  from the Smith family- funds that we were told we could do whatever we wished with. 
  • I had initially declined the funds in 1989, but my wife was  given them anyway, and I felt these were God's funds and asked what His will was for them. We both agreed to seek prayerfully how to use them and not use them if we did not agree. 
  • In about 1989, I was shown a small school building that was a composite of one lower building on the left  or west and another higher building to the right (or east). In 1997 we built this facility -joined together with an upper floor that connected the left and right facilities. Back in 1989, the  image of these two facilities lingered with me for some time, this vision coming back to me again and again. It would be ten years later, we found such a facility next to the LDS motion picture studio, and re-built this east-wests neighborhood  education center into a beautiful center for families... a lab school for home school - school partnerships - supporting parents and heavenly promptings as the primary educators.  We operated this Alta Vista Education center through a class council process, we set up  student film labs, a performing arts program, with a variety of ways to teach the universal language of math, We focused much like Waldorf schools on HOW to learn, not what to learn. Those who came - learned how to do research - ask questions, - work in councils,  explore emotional health, and enjoy the performing arts. 
  • In about 1999 I am taught by the spirit for three days - key links between our emotional health and our learning and health. I  know this is part of the work of Elijah. I feel what I learned could change how we see health and medicine  This unfolds into discovering the learning within each of us, and the simple definition of education....to bring forth from within. and the power of the atonement to removed stresses stored in us when we learn our lessons. I learn to listen and learn from pains and lessons within. 
  • Great opposition came against this work with serious threats to harm the children and we close the center for the safety of the children. A few years later- it is sold n 2004 to the LDS Church for the motional picture studio use. They paid market value of 695K with part paid  in cash and $150k of tithing credit. I felt prompted about the tithing credit issues, and that it will help start an important work some day. More about  this story at another time.  
  • in the year 2000 I was given a powerful witness and vision of this work we started with graduate work continuing in the future -starting in China -  and replacing the systems of the world as they failed. I am told I would help leaders of churches and nations and be in a parallel role to the Prophet. I did not act on this vision for almost ten years,as it seemed contrary to tradition, and as I was being moved by the spirit from one job to another. 
  • My mother Nancy Tripp Kilmer passes away in 2001. Before she passes away she shares with me what she was learning as death nears. She said while doing Tai Chi with a neighbor, that she discovered , that while she lost her beauty physically with cancer, she discovered her beauty within just before death. I realized mom worried about her physical beauty during her life and this was a healing moment for her. 
  • 2001, I am guided to work as a director of a leading mental health center. I felt the Lord help with major changes their, developing council's and doing simple improvements to bring major health improvements. I am told to leave after two years - we travel to do work in China , and I am later hired from a selection of 20 candidates to supervise the State Capitol operations during the major 300M $ renovations. 
  •  While running the Utah state Capitol facilities operations under four governors during major renovation -- in 2010, I felt to travel to see my father in California and see the Living Light Institute. My mothers presence was felt before the trip and the name Simple Living Centers comes to me and keeps returning again and again. While on this trip names of one organization kept coming to me and my own mind came  up with speculation about this ..then I received a clear prompting to ask the names of two organizations, and at this time I felt  the presence of many or multitudes from the spirit world of Chinese background, and felt the presence of Joseph, Emma and many others. I feel the experience is to sacred to write about. I was told to ask two names and was given clarity by the spirit - of two names of organizations to start. One was local - the other international.  One was Simple Living Centers (plural) , the other was Habitat for Health (international) . I am not sure what Simple Living Centers are. Months later, I felt the presence of a being from the other side and later learned he is John , ...that was left on the earth to prepare the world for the second coming. He came to me while in the Timpanogos temple and whispered to  me the three aspects of the financial model for this organization and helping those in need, and other key details ----I learn this is a work for a grass roots work for  tipping the consciousness of communities to providing local needs and food producing economies. --and that this work can be led  by a small group of people with Habitat for Healths  support. (I am impressed women will start this) 
  • in 2011, having felt for some time I will marry someone from China, I meet and attend the temple with Suhsin Tu. We decide to marry shortly after doing sealings in the temple. 
  • In about 2013, while in the Jordan River Temple -leaving the celestial room, the spirit witnesses to me again and again, that the Simple Living Centers are the seven centers of light within each of us (chakras) and when teaching with the hand it is the seventh finger, or finger next to the thumb. The kingdom of God within. These combine one spiritual light  from the heavens and a power circling up from the earth - like two magnets --and I am impressed they operate  with complete integrity much like an iron rod.
  • abt 2015, Hyrum Smith appears to me in my home in Milcreek, dressed in white, - before leaving to Taiwan, telling me that Hyrum figures will come to me to help support this work. Chris Caldwell a return missionary from Taiwan and his wife Michelle  feels prompted to  move to live by our family. They both receive a number of witnesses a support us while in Taiwan. 
  • Visitations from beings in the spirit world, and very instructive dreams continue while in Taiwan. 
  • In 2016, my wife and I felt to go live in Taiwan where my wife is from. I receive a clear witness to teach Simple Living Centers... 
  • In March of 2017, Jesus Christ witnesses  of the work while in the Korea temple, indicating to me in a quiet way.. this is part of the vision of Isaiah as he saw the last days and foresaw a Davidic servant to prepare the way for the eternal Davidic King Jesus Christ. Click here for a work for our day.  I felt his friendship. He shows me by quiet example that leadership is service to others.A brother in the Church  feels the witness of that event .After repeated prompting and following the release of the Church video that the Church wants the entire world to know about the Political Kingdom of God, I receive repeated promptings to Proclaim this work to endowed members of the Church and visit with the stake president about this. He encourages his wife to followup with me and  teach his wife more.  Chris Caldwell and I  write the Proclamation of this work to the world while in Taiwan ROC. Some were open to it, others were worried about keeping busy to make money. Later, I moved to Illinois in 2017, and shared this with leaders and churches there. Native indians were open to this as were a few locals, yet it was rejected by the church leaders - generally speaking. They show interest, but believe  Elder McConkie views, many of which the Church had asked him to remove from his books.  I continue to hope that through the trails ahead we can begin to prepare more as communities. 
  • August 20th, 2018 The Promptings come regarding proclaiming the Church of the Firstborn, living a life centered in the two great commandments, and surrendering to a higher will, and daily guidance from the heavens and earth in all we do. 
  • Almost daily dreams,  and impressions continue to unfold this work. Women, youth, and witnesses of others receiving their own awakening and witness of a Davidic servant, and their own role or mission as a community leader...continue to unfold.

Added witnesses

My name is Christopher Caldwell. I am a striving faithful member of the LDS church, striving faithful husband and striving loving father of one. I served a two year mission in Taiwan learning the Mandarin language, and upon returning from my mission in 2011, returned to my college institution in Provo and felt prompted to go to the Chinese ward. Upon entering, I met a Mr. David Cassani in which I felt the spirit bare a powerful witness to me, that whatever he is doing project wise, I must help him and be a support; in which I've been involved with David and this project since 2012 to now.
I have a testimony of this work we are engaged in, and have received a personal witness regarding Ezekiel 34:23 and how David Cassani is called to do this work. I cannot impress upon you how many time I have had spiritual impression upon spiritual impression working with David on his divine calling.


  • I suggest you take your time, look around, open your minds and hearts, and learn all there is to know about us and this movement. I have been told to Proclaim this to the world. I share it with no interest in fame or fortune.... Just to do the will of my Father in Heaven and serve mankind. I have found miracles do and will attend this work and feel as if I am being guided daily by those on the other side.  We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line if you want to learn with us. We have welcome contributions and information. Each can be a big part of this work. This is a team effort with a few specifics given for it.
  • This is a work from the grass roots - or care for the earth, ,up to the heavens. I sincerely witness of the help of the heavens, our ancestors, and the inspired works of this earth - in doing this. To those that oppose this work as delusional or of man,  I hear your message. I would not have believed it -  if it did not happen to me and if I did not see support from history that I have. Relying on your own divine guidance and the inspiration that comes in councils - are comforts in carrying out this work.  Those on the other side will assist us.  ALL voices are apart of  this movement back to the simple ways of God, or the simple ways of life. 

A message for my children.

I consider having about 12+ children. 6 biological, 4 adopted, 2 foster. ... and a host of others who stayed in our home through the years and we were parents for.  Our (your mothers and I) lives have been dedicated to raising children with the guidance of heaven, and I consider all earthly parents, secondary parents to Heavenly Parents, who know you far better than I do. This work is vital for our day and for each of you. 

  •  First, I am leaving you my history. It did not make sense for me when revealed early in my life, and then later in the year 2000. In fact most the family thought I was crazy. I am sure as Lehi was laughed at. 
  • I patiently waited for more of the Lord's messengers to make sense of what happened to me in the year 2000, when I was told I would be in a parallel role to the Prophet, involved with a work to feed nations. See Ezekiel 32, and that our neighborhood model for teaching and living would spread throughout the world. 
  • Years, later, another more quiet revelation came  to me in April of 2010 and I was told two names of organizations in the last days. I felt the presence of many of your ancestors and my ancestors. I felt in addition multitudes of those in the spirit work of chinese ancestory. 
  • I was then given a blessing by a local bishop, and told the President Monson would help me. I was impressed to write him about my story and three months after I wrote him in August of 2010. The First Presidency released from the First Presidencies office in November of 2010, three books related to the Political Kingdom of God, and as few understood, the living Constitution or Kingdom of God within each of us. Joseph  Smith said these records were to be kept hidden or burned, as he knew they were very important. 
  • These records tell of a David to come in the last days before the second coming. The  tell that the political kingdom of God would be separate from the Church, yet parallel to it, and that it would come out of the Church. 
  • You are all related to Asael Smith, Joseph's grandfather and funding for this project in part came through your mothers witness of the spirit to support the work I started at BYU in 1993 until 2000.
  • That work has unfolded into this marvelous work and a wonder. 
  • I encourage you to learn of the political kingdom and the Kingdom of God within, both revealed for our time. 
  • Ben received important witnesses after high school  to study the Kingdom within, or chakras as found in eastern medicine at a Budhist College in Colorado.
  • Did you know Ben was perhaps the only Orem high student to attend a Buddhist college after high school. 
  • We all have much to learn in the Church, and perhaps more to learn in our own relationship with God and how he works with seven divine centers of light within each of us. 
  • I share my solemn witness that God loves each of you and knows you better than any earthly imperfect parent, but that God's way of teaching you and awakening your centers of light within you to finding who you are and what your work is in this life - is so perfect and loving. May you discover your beauty within each of you, a beauty parents see at times as you have all grown.

Your loving  Dad. 

Some reflections.


Transition Towns Cheerful Disclaimer

I was drawn to this quote when lead to a group called Transition Town US, a movement that started in Europe after world war II in England when much of their infrastructure had been destroyed.

"Just in case you were under the impression that Transition is a process defined by people who have all the answers, you need to be aware of a key fact......
What we are convinced of is this:

  • If we wait for the governments, it'll be too little, too late
  • If we act as individuals, it'll be too little
  • But if we act as communities, it might just be enough, just in time. "

This movement is for ordinary  People like you


The Prophet Joseph Smith

  • The Prophet Joseph Smith made an astounding declaration in a discourse he gave in 1843:

“The book of Revelation is one of the plainest books God ever caused to be written.”5Certainly to God, or to John the apostle, or even to Joseph Smith, Revelation was a “plain” book; but most of us in the world do not have the knowledge and power to gain such an insight.


Those not inclined to this message

Please be respectful of those that may not be inclined to accept this at this time.  Quiet example and shifting how we talk about life, food, agency, the body, health and revelation will naturally open hearts and discussion in time. Having peace that all will come in the Lord's time and not through our personal ambition of self will is key to this unfolding work.  

Reflections from a Scientist: My father in Law.

My father  in law, a leading physicist from Stanford involved in the development of the cancer machine, invited me to tour the linear accelerator one day. I had contemplated a degree at Berkeley in physics, but decided on a more practical everyday career in facility management and energy management. 

Karl (Brown) shared with me how they have identified something within all elements. In addition to protons and nuetrons, they found something they called chi, an energy field in all particles that networks somehow intelligently with other particles. 

In writing Karls history, I reflected on his commitment to a 24-7 career, but found that his best and key ideas came when he was on vacation, relaxing from the stress of daily work. Karl's work is used worldwide in cancer machines.

As he has passed on, I have to ask, is there a simple way to avoid cancer or empower our bodies to avoid it or have strong immune systems that do not allow the cancer genes to be enabled. See this interesting link from THE CHINA STUDY.. PRINCIPLE #4

Genes do not determine disease on their own. Genes function only by being activated, or expressed, and nutrition plays a critical role in determining which genes, good and bad, are expressed.
