“Jehovah Is My Strength and My Song”

“Jehovah Is My Strength and My Song”

We receive Christ’s atonement and share in his identity as his adopted, covenant children (see Mosiah 5:7) by receiving and obeying the laws and ordinances of the gospel (see A of F 1:3). As “his seed” (Mosiah 15:10–13), we can become like Christ and share in his character traits, including his power and exuberant joy, his spiritual fire (revelation and testimony), and his redeeming love, all of which help unite us with him and each other—at-ONE-ment, indeed (see D&C 50:43).

Online LDS New Testament Study with a “You-Are-There” Feel

A few weeks ago, after priesthood meeting in our ward, I noticed a sheet of paper on the front table. It was an Old Testament handout from the previous week from one of the Gospel Doctrine Sunday School classes of the other ward that meets in our building. The two-page summary handout, which had been printed from Daniel and Steven Rona’s website, israelrevealed.com, contained details about broken cisterns in Israel (Jer. 2:13) and other information in connection with that week’s lesson on Jeremiah. At that website, they have Gospel Doctrine supplementary materials for both the Old and New Testaments.

Giving Thanks to Grandpa and Grandma

Giving Thanks to Grandpa and Grandma

A few months ago, many of my cousins, siblings, and I gathered with two of our aunts, ages 89 and 97, at the site of our grandparents’ home to spend an evening with Grandpa and Grandma. In the September twilight, we read from Grandpa’s and Grandma’s journals and shared our wonderful memories of them, their seven children, and their house and yard, where as children we had all spent time visiting and exploring. We also had our picture taken with them, standing next to giant blow-up photos of them—like a celebrity photo op! (We had these enlarged photos, called engineering prints, made at bargain prices at a local copy store.)
