Mentoring a New Member

When a new member or an investigator comes to the . There is no one, other than the missionaries who will eventually leave, for them to turn to with questions or concerns. I remember, as a new member, being embarrassed to ask questions or express doubts. My lack of a...

Setting Worthwhile Goals

There's a quote I just love by popular LDS writer John Bytheway: "With nothing to shoot for, your life is shot." So let's talk about how to set reasonable, worthwhile goals that can give you something positive to shoot for. The Prophet Joseph Smith taught, “Happiness...

It’s All in the Attitude

The Young Women of attitude you have: 1. Do you often have a gloomy expression on your face? 2. Do you forget the many good things in your life and overemphasize the few things you lack? 3. Do you feel sorry for yourself? 4. Do you think more of yourself than of...

Faith Brings Happiness

I just read a touching post by Candace that inspired me to write a bit on the relationship faith has with happiness. Candace is currently faced with a trial that has the potential to rock her world. Correction; it has rocked her world. However, what I know of Candace...

Misery or Cheer

"Daily, constantly, we choose by our desires, our thoughts, and our actions whether we want to be blessed or cursed, happy or miserable," said President Ezra Taft Benson. What will you choose today? Sometimes, if you can believe it, I choose misery. Yes, I know, why...

Folks with questions about Mormons might be curious to know what Mormons think of Halloween. Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (otherwise known as Mormons) always love opportunities to share fun times with their families. How members celebrate...

Mormons and Families

In a world where the definitions of marriage and family are ever changing, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints stands as a constant defender of the family unit. It calls the family “the most important social unit in time and eternity.” Families are held to...

Pending Layoffs? Never Fear, A Current Resume Is Here!

Being caught with an out-of-date resume is not a pleasant experience. But normally it would not matter ... unless you've just been laid off. That is why it is important that you stay on top of keeping your resume current. Not a fun job, perhaps, but your future job...

Family Outings

When was the last time you went on a family outing - without it being an assignment? In other words, NOT because of a recital. NOT because of a ball game. NOT because of a church meeting. No, we're talking a spontaneous, or planned, jaunt together--like getting in the...

The Book of Mormon – A Powerful Aid to Daily Living

I love the Book of Mormon - not only for its beauty, but for its powerful potential to change the children of men into children of God. President Marion G. Romney (a member of the First Presidency of the Church during the early 80s) said: "If we the spirit. I know of...

Faith: The Evidence of Things Hoped For

Faith is the evidence of things hoped for but not seen. It only need to be the size of a mustard seed in order to move something as mighty as the Rocky Mountains. It seems to be something that is hard to believe in because it is nothing tangible that can be held,...

Got Talent?

Many of us look upon others with envy. They seem to have everything we don't. And I don't just mean worldly possessions, that'll be a topic for another day. Rather, I mean, the stuff they've got going on inside of themselves. We all know someone who is good looking,...

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...
