Preparedness – It’s a Community Effort

Being prepared is far more global than one might expect. Not only does wise preparedness cover such topics as financial preparedness, physical preparedness (i.e. dental exams, health exams), and food storage, but preparedness also addresses community preparedness....

Do The Hard Things

Sometimes we have to do hard things. Perhaps we think we can't do them, we shouldn't do them, or we just plain won't do them. When we shirk our responsibilities we feel guilt, frustration, unease. Surely, this is not the path to happiness. “The scriptures make the...

He Revealeth His Secrets

As Mormons, we believe the scripture contained in the Bible found in Amos 3:7: "Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets" (Amos 3:7). We believe that God calls literal prophets, duly ordained by Him, to lead and...

Bandaging Each Others’ Wounds

Have you stopped to consider that you might be the only emotional "bandage" , but oh how difficult that can be when one of the two spouses is low. Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in how difficult things are for us. Sometimes, because we don't see the day through...

Learning to Pray

Early in my investigation of the church as a teenager, I went on a campout with trip. In awe, I said, “I’ve never prayed so much in my life. Every time we turned around, it was time for another prayer.” Prayer was quite a challenge for me when I was first learning...

The Title Page of The Book of Mormon

When one first handles the Book of Mormon, it can be an interesting experience. The text inside is similar to the Bible, in that the language feels somewhat ancient, yet the placement on the page might feel different than what you are used to. But exploring the Book...

Why Study the Book of Mormon?

Why study the Book of Mormon? feel too much. But I have to tell you, nothing brings peace to my life as swiftly as does the study of the scriptures. And studying the Book of Mormon hand in hand with the Bible is equally the experience for me. Here is why. President...

Why the Book of Mormon?

Perhaps you have wondered, "Why the Book of Mormon? Don't we already have a Bible?" This perhaps is a common question for some. After all, the e - that Jesus is the Christ, the Savior and Redeemer of mankind. Yet there are many in the world that claim the historical...

Have You Read Your Scriptures Today?

Yesterday my husband and I recommitted ourselves to reading the Book of Mormon again from beginning to end. We’ve given ourselves until December 31st of this year, so we have a little over two months to do it. Remember that challenge from President Hinckley in 2005 to...

Serving the Lord With All Your Heart

1 Now behold, a marvelous work is about to come forth among the children of men. 2 Therefore, O ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve him with all your heart, might, mind and strength, that ye may stand blameless before God at the last day. (D&C...

Switching Places for a Day

Most of us have seen the movie Freaky Friday. If not, it's a humorous Disney movie where a teenage daughter and mother are mysteriously switched - into each other's bodies. The point of the movie seems to be that sometimes parents do not understand their children's...

Getting to Know You

How well do you know your children? Knowing another person is much like diving into a banana split. First you “meet” the cherrie on top, then the nut sprinkles. Next comes, in that tasty bite, the light and airy whipped cream. Once you make it through all those...

When Your Missionaries Get Transferred

For many investigators and new members, the missionaries are the direct link to the church. They’re in your home often and they know your family and your challenges. You trust them and when you have questions or challenges related to the gospel, you go to them first....

Keeping the Sabbath When Your Parents Don’t

As a teenaged convert, I found Sundays very stressful. I came home from church filled with the spirit and determined to keep the Sabbath Day Holy. Unfortunately, I tended to walk into a noisy, busy home where no one else was keeping the Sabbath Day holy, since none of...

I Don’t Have Pioneer Ancestors

My first ward seemed to be entirely made up of descendants of the pioneers. In classes, everyone would take turns telling stories about their ancestors and I would sit silently, with nothing to say. I wondered if I was a second-class Mormon because, as a convert, I...

Answers to Questions

Yesterday, I received an email asking me a number of questions regarding the plan of salvation. I'd run across a question on Amazon.com: "Why did God create the world?" I answered that question for this person and she emailed me with more. I did respond to her, but I...

Wives Submit To Your Husbands

Ephesians 5 The word “submission” gets a bad rap in today’s “politically correct” society. We have a sense that no one should ever have to submit to anyone, that we are all created equal and that since no one is above or below another’s station, submission should...

FHE Idea: All Families Are Connected

In continuing our play with the falling leaves, I’d like to do a similar activity to the one mentioned yesterday, but continue with a completely different message. We’re All Connected Once again begin your Family Home Evening as you normally do. I suggested a few...

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...
