Love One Another

My wife and I taught the 13 and 14-year-old class a short time ago—Maddy and Tristan and Eliza and Shaun, two Sydnees and Josh and Trevor. We heard a story about a Sunday School teacher that told each student “I love you” every week. We adopted that strategy and our...

Faith is a Choice, Not a Chance

Sometimes we look at someone and marvel at how much faith they have. Sometimes we wonder how someone can have so little faith. Faith is not like a talent where some can develop it and some cannot. It is more like a trait that anyone can develop if they are willing to...

Family Movie Night: Barbie Swan Lake

As an animation fan I love finding little gems that are much better than you expect. I can honestly say the Barbie movies fit into this category. They are easy dismiss as direct to dvd films made solely to sell toys to little girls but that is doing them a disservice....

Writing Your Story

There's a saying that goes, "You can't start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one". We all can agree on how true that is.  But it seems so difficult to do just that- to keep moving forward and reading and creating new chapters. I can't...

How a Priest’s Prayer Changed Everything

I watched the priests as they took their places at the Sacrament table.  They were smiling and talking.  I enjoyed their mutual friendliness.  I could tell the tall one in the middle was a jokester.  Everything from his mop of curly red hair to his Scooby Doo tie to...

Alan Ashton – Significant to Me

When I was just getting started, Alan Ashton changed my life. I met this infamous business icon when I was a young father recently graduated from Brigham Young University. We all knew of Alan’s success, because he had been a professor at the school prior to launching...

One Step Closer to Zion

Several things in this last Conference signaled to me that times are changing, and the Church is also changing. It started with the emphasis given in the women’s session on the refugees. The quotes in this article are from Linda K. Burton’s talk, which focused on the...

Family Movie Night: Saturday’s Warrior

Nostalgia is a tricky thing when it comes to movies. Some movies require it to be enjoyable and some movies are bolstered and made better by it. The Peanuts Movie, for instance, is a film that was made better by nostalgia.  I really loved that film on its own merits...

Love the Lord By Serving

Sunday morning, I walked about before our meetings began and greeted my friends and caught up on our weekly happenings. As I visited with my friend Ginny, she shared with me how she had almost called me because she was in desperate need of safety pins and didn’t have...

How I Joined the LDS Church

Hello, everyone!  My name is Jen and I'm so thrilled to be a part of this amazing opportunity to spread hope and courage to all the LDS Blogs readers. To share a little about myself, I'm 24 years old and living in Utah. I'm a convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of...

A Child’s Soul

"My kids are driving me crazy!!" Does that sound familiar? It seems we hear this phrase more often than not. You always hear those horror stories when your toddler gets into someone else's diaper bag, and opens and dumps the entire can of formula.  (Don't ask me where...

Your Journal Is For Others

What’s in a name? I start with this simple question because the answer is both surprising and significant, and it may change your life. I remember a story told about President George Albert Smith: When President Smith was young, his deceased grandfather George A....

I am a Child of God

For just about 10 years, I have been singing “I Am A Child of God” to sleepy little boys. Sometimes when I sing that song, it is filled with deep emotion, but other times, I have to admit, I am merely going through the motions in the hopes that by the time I hit verse...

Family Movie Night: Powerpuff Girls

As an animation addict it can be easy to discount properties that are deemed as ‘cartoons’.   This word sometimes designates a lower level of quality than the grandness of animation.  It was with this thought that I never really paid much attention to the Cartoon...

Do You Conform?

The Swedish swarm walked toward me. They all looked exactly the same – black coat, black pants, dark shoes. Hairstyles varied moderately, but I marveled how 200 people riding the same train became identical. They had another characteristic in common. None of them...

When I Grow Up I Want To Be Four

This article was previously published on Latterdaysaintwoman.com One day I was teaching a group of preschoolers about the second coming. A little girl leaped from her seat, twirled around, and said with passion, “Oh, I wish he’d come right this minute. I miss him so...

BE Someone Who Cares

“We each affect those around us, people we love, our neighbors, co-workers, or even total strangers. It might be a deliberate act of kindness or just a smile and a friendly word. Or it could be just singing your heart out. And in most cases, you will never know whom...
