Find Happiness in Yourself

I am fat. I am ugly. No one likes me. I’m not smart enough. I’m not talented enough. I’m worthless. Do these lies sound familiar to you? Yes, I said lies. Oh, they might contain slivers of truth; the Adversary likes to work that way. He will tell you things that are...

Things As They Really Are

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a system of religious education for college-age students called the "Institute of Religion." When I was in college at the University of Oklahoma, we had a Latter-day Saint Institute instructor who warned us against...

Our Bodies As Temples

It seems no matter where I turn these days I can no longer tell the difference between some Latter-day Saint people and the people of the world. Let's explore a little of what I'm talking about. 16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God...

The Holy Ghost and a Can of Pop

The first Article of Faith states: We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost can be a difficult concept to relate to children. It’s easy to describe what the Holy Ghost does for us: Yet the idea of the...

Youth: Write to a Missionary

It may not seem like an opportunity for service, but ask any missionary what one of their favorite things in the world are, and they'll say letters. As a senior in high school I was seriously considering the possibility of going on a mission when I turned twenty-one....

Happiness is Family

At the Root of Womanhood

You know, I have to admit that much of how I think of myself as a woman--and to be honest, about I met my husband when I was 19 and married him when I was 20. Before I was 22, I had my first baby. All but 2 of my years as a woman have coincided with my years as a wife...

A House of Order

We Are Facing Difficult Times

The world seems to be tilting ever more out of control. From violent drought-ridden areas, indeed the world can be a tempestuous place. This is why I'm grateful for men such as President James E. Faust, a member of the First Presidency for the Church of Jesus Christ...
