The Name of Jesus Christ

When Mary learned she was to have a divine Son, she was instructed to name him Jesus. Long before Mary knew He was to be her child, however, the Savior had been given many names—Jehovah, the Lamb of God, the Savior, the Redeemer, Jesus Christ. In His lifetime, He...

Stories of Mary

Jesus Christ and Joey

At Christmastime, we remember the reason for all the world's joy.  And celebrate the day He became a small boy. In our church a person’s membership record includes the date he or she was baptized.  I’ll never forget the moment I laid eyes on my Down syndrome son’s...

The Women at Jesus’s Birth

During the Christmas season we often think of Mary the mother of Jesus who was the special handmaiden who brought our Savior into the world. We are thankful for her sacrifice as we wouldn’t have had Jesus if it weren’t for Mary. But there were other women on the scene...

Focus on Jesus Christ

When I was a small boy in primary, we sang songs about going on our way to grandmother's house and Give Said the Little Stream. I remember these songs fondly and still carry the tunes and words in my mind many years later. Since I lived in southern Utah as a young...

Don’t Ignore the Miracles

The sun came softly through my bedroom window as I tried to focus on the alarm clock to see the time. Deciding I had a few minutes before I needed to move, I looked out the window and watched a squirrel run back and forth from the fence to the tree. A second squirrel...

3 Apocryphal Nativity Stories

I love the Nativity! I've always felt a sense of awe and wonder in reading about Jesus' birth. As I've grown, I've enjoyed finding Apocryphal versions of the story. And while there are obvious biases based on the translator's theological slant and discrepancies...

Be Men

Finding Joy

I have had everything I ever wanted several times in my life.  A good husband, children to love, and a safe home.  For years I worked to get these things worked out assuming that then, I’d constantly be happy.  I’m not sorry I invested in these relationships and...

From Emily

The beginning of the life of Christ began the lessons that we learn from Him in mortality.  He taught often by telling stories that invited listeners to connect eternal principles with their everyday lives.  My daughter has noticed how scenes from her everyday life...

My Mug of Enlightenment

Have you ever had thoughts about something you have pondered for years and years and had done nothing about it?  “One day,” we say to ourselves, “One day we will accomplish that thought.” When will it be that day?   For me that day had arrived.  I write nonfiction...

My Wrestle With the Most Horrible Story in the Bible

Do you ever feel like you totally know something? Like you're so sure you know it that you'd bet your life on it? Have you ever found out it's not true?   That happened to me this week. I'd been believing some information, planning next year based on that information,...

Spice Up Your Holidays

More Records Equals Better Genealogy

I remember, as a novice family history research, the thrill of finding a record that told me more about my family and immediately adding the information to my family history.  Back then, my family tree was on paper and only available to those with whom I personally...

Monumental Decision

So my daughter came to me and asked “Do you have any personal stories about praying and not getting the answer immediately, but it actually ended up being better?” She was planning to teach something in seminary in that regard. We went to grandfather’s personal...

I've got a terrible confession to make.  Sunday stresses me out!!  I don't mean the regular kind of stress, I mean the kind where I can feel the pressure building in my head.  And I have to stop and take several deep breaths to slow my heart.  It's terrible!  Here I...
