Teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ by the Spirit of Truth

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the “Mormon Church”) is uniquely different from all other religions: It is not a man-made religion; it is God-made religion. The definitive proof of this bold claim is given by God. This means that the...

Finding Happiness in Your Marriage

I have a unique marriage story that'll probably set your teeth on edge. The story is my own and it goes like this: I was a young woman of twenty-two when I wanted to serve a mission for the LDS Church. I prepared my papers with the help of my Bishop and everything was...

Slave Schedules

A slave schedule refers to a census taken of slaves that lived in the United States. There were only two slave schedules taken, one in the year 1850 and one in 1860. The 1850 slave schedule asked the following questions: * Name of slave owners * Number of slaves * Age...

Preparedness is a Lifestyle … Not a One Time Event

Why Mormons Believe in Being Prepared

We as Mormons believe the prophets. Whether those prophets are ancient ones or current ones, we believe them and that they speak the Lord's word. We base this on the scripture in Amos 3:7: "Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his...

Though the World May Appear to Be Falling Apart …

Is there any need to fear when events in the world appear at times to be so horrific? In today’s world, one only need pick up a local newspaper to read frightening news. Whether it is about a wheat virus threatening the world’s food supplies or whether the news report...

Education

As Mormons we believe the glory of God is intelligence. In D&C 93:36 we read: "The glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth." As such, education is an important component for those who belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day...

Strengthening the Family

Studies have shown that families who go on an outing once a week are more successful in raising balanced children. Perhaps this is not surprising to you, but it surprised me. Honestly, our family had become so busy with so many individual activities that a family...

Work, Work, Work …

What do we do when our children do not want to work around the home? Is this a problem or is it not? And what is the Lord's perspective? As Mormons, we believe families can be together forever. This is a great thing. That is why everything we do as parents is done (or...

The Family

Just what is the Lord's perspective on the family? Have you ever wondered? There sure seem to be a lot of people "in the world" who have opinions. Some say that families don't matter, others say that they do. Studies show that having stable families with both a mother...

Sharing Your New Religion

How to Be a Good Class Member

Scripture Study Techniques – Prayer

The scriptures are inspired tools for our growth toward God. Through them we can learn of His ways, His desires for us, and what He expects from us as His children. This all excites me to no end. And it is why I desire to show Him I value my scriptures by reading from...

Scripture is Given by Inspiration of God

In 2 Timothy 3:16-17 we read: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; "That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." Isn't this...

The Pearl of Great Price

Mormons will refer to "the Pearl of Great Price." But how confusing to someone who is just learning about our faith and membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Just what is "the Pearl of Great Price"? First of all, the Pearl of Great Price is...

Joy in Feasting Upon the Scriptures

Missionaries know that very little teaching is needed once a person has read the Book of Mormon with an open heart. So little added instruction is needed because the Spirit will bear witness of the truth of the book all on it's own. Because of this, missionaries...

Hannah Kept Her Promise to the Lord

* Story taken from 1 Samuel Chapter 1, KJV * Even before he was born a baby named Samuel was promised to be a servant to the Lord. His mother, Hannah, couldn’t have any kids and this made her very sad. To be a mother is a wonderful gift and back in the days of Samuel...

Teens: The Importance of Staying Chaste
