Have you ever had a mental flashback to something that happened years earlier? For me, these flashbacks often include a singular moment from my time as a missionary. It is often something I hadn’t thought about in years, but all of the sudden I will be taken back to that time and place. I had one of these moments last week when I was seemingly transported back to an apartment in Pasco, Washington, into the home of a family I came to love. The mother’s name was Alma, and one night we were teaching her about the Great Apostasy. We explained to Alma that when Christ was on the earth, He gave His Apostles the priesthood—the authority to bless and baptize, among other things—but that this authority was eventually taken from the earth.

And after years of photographing more secular collections that have been displayed in places like the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, what has it meant to Timothy to share the light of Christ in her most recent collection?
