Activity: Thanksgiving Bulletin Board

Though I first thought of doing this as a fun Family Home Evening during the month of November (parents, stay tuned), I also found it made a fun activity for the Young Women (girls 12-18) as well. If you have someone who normally takes care of your bulletin boards in...

Fasting While Pregnant and Breastfeeding

When I first joined the church, I was a teenager and the only member in my family. Having never fasted before, the Law of the Fast was a difficult one for me to follow, especially when everyone around me was eating. Nevertheless I persevered in abstaining from food...

Finding God: A Still Small Voice vs. Fire from Heaven

Elijah was a great missionary for the Lord. He is held in high esteem within Jewish tradition. In anticipation of Elijah’s predicted return to earth (Malachi 4: 5, 6), a place at the table is set, at every feast of the Passover. The scriptures describe him as a “hairy...

Let’s Get Healthy

Okay, so it's not the New Year, but there's never a bad time for a new resolution, so here's what I propose: I suggest we all resolve to be a little more positive and take a view of optimism. It's not as hard as it might seem. An LDS children's hymn tells us that ......

That You Might Have Joy

One day a few years ago I was returning home from the temple with a prayer in my heart. I was pleading with my Heavenly Father to release me from the pain I was suffering. My husband and I had some months before undergone a terrible tragedy and I was so deep in...

Slow Down

Every day when our alarms go off, we’re off like horses in a race. We try to beat our previous times by accomplishing even more today than we did yesterday. At the end of the day, we crash into our beds, exhausted from our efforts. And, more often than not, we beat...

Why Did You Leave the Church?

Strengthening Families: Even if you don’t have children

Recently, I’ve heard many talks and lessons about how to strengthen the family. And invariably, most of what I have heard focuses on what we can do as mothers to strengthen our children. Any discussion is usually on what and how to teach our children certain...

After Camelot Falls

I recently had my heart broken. Someone I cared for turned out to not be the person I had hoped they would be. My Camelot fell. While the relationship lasted “there was a spot, for one brief shining moment, that was known as Camelot.” There was love, excitement, and...

In His Father’s House: The Boyhood of Jesus

In what James Talmage describes as “impressive brevity,” very little is written about young Jesus in scripture. It is understandable that a good parent would strive to protect the privacy of a tender child; it follows that early details of this precious Son were made...

What Is Primary?

I started thinking, especially as our administrator has been encouraging us to do so, that I’ve never really explained exactly what Primary is. Like other churches, we have a specific organization to care for and teach the children of our church. This organization is...

Youth: How Do We Recognize Revelation?

Youth are Entitled to Personal Revelation

"Prayer is the means by which man communicates with God. Revelation is the means by which God communicates with man." Who is entitled to revelation? I’m here to tell you all of us are. In fact, Bruce R. McConkie (one of the General Authorities of the Mormon Church)...

Missionary Miracles: A Marvelous Work and a Wonder

The Latin etymology of the word “mission” denotes an “act of sending.” The definition of the word “missionary” from Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary is: “a person sent on the work of a religious mission.” The idea of “being sent” is key! A “mission” is never something...

Knowledge is Power

Joseph Smith, Jr., the prophet of the Restoration, said, “Knowledge does away with darkness, suspense, and doubt; for these cannot exist where knowledge is . . . In knowledge there is power.” The entire Restoration of the Savior’s Church came about because Joseph was...

How to Learn More About the Mormons

Mormons have a number of websites, provided by the Church, which enable us to prepare ourselves for any eventuality. Whether it is the main website which grants us access to all the words of modern prophets and apostles, the scriptures online, information about the...

Teen: Where Am I Going?

I don’t know that this third question pertaining to the Plan of I do recall as a youth having a difficult time imagining ‘eternity’. My mind simply refused to wrap around that concept (still doesn’t, to be honest). So for those of you not yet concerned about what...
