Writing Your First Talk

The first time I was asked to teach a lesson, I said, “But I don’t know anything about this subject.” I was told, “Then that must be why God wanted you to teach it.” It can be overwhelming to be asked to give a talk when you don’t know anything about the subject...

You’re Quoting Who?

Marie Osmond and the “Fainting Incident”

This isn't really the type of news I like to blog about. I mean, we're usually e Osmond passing out on live television doesn't quite fit. But it's so prominent in the media right now, I'm choosing to take the leap. So here it goes. During a live broadcast of Dancing...

Mormon’s Are Baptized at Eight Years Old
