Meet Our Authors

LDSBlogs is written by a dedicated team of LDS (Mormon) volunteers. Their goal is to help you navigate a complicated life by learning how to get through every day issues. Some will just be writing about the typical lives almost anyone has. Others will be writing more about their own faith and they will show you what the world looks like through Mormon eyes. Many of the posts won’t seem Mormon to you at all, though–their lives will seem just like yours. They share the wisdom they’ve picked up from everyday life, tell us what they’ve been studying and thinking about, or offer a unique perspective on the world.

Each writer is different and as you explore the site, you’re likely to find someone you know you’d like in real life, because they think so much like you or have a perspective that helps you with the challenges and goals of your life. If you are curious about Mormons, they will, from time to time, give you a glimpse into just what it means to live the Mormon life, whether it’s a life like yours or one with a few differences. More curious? Some topics on the site are written for actual Mormons. Take a peek and see how we talk to each other!
