Teen: Where Am I Going?

I don’t know that this third question pertaining to the Plan of I do recall as a youth having a difficult time imagining ‘eternity’. My mind simply refused to wrap around that concept (still doesn’t, to be honest). So for those of you not yet concerned about what...

President Hinckley Addresses 107 Stakes in Broadcast

Worth Fighting For

I am the mother of three, two are teenagers. I know well the challenge most them in the wrong direction. They are challenged at almost every turn. At times I feel helpless at the overwhelming task that is before me as a mother. What can one mother do to combat the...

What Is the Book of Mormon?

What is the Book of Mormon? Perhaps the simplest and volumes. It reads: “The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ.” And that’s what it is. As the Old Testament testifies of the coming of Christ, and the New Testament testifies of His ministry among the...

D & C 4: A Marvelous Work

The first verse of Doctrine and Covenants section 4 reads: "Now behold, a marvelous work is about to come forth among the children of men." The first question I have about this verse is: What's the marvelous work? The prophet Isaiah in the Old Testament spoke of a...

Youth: Pressured to Dance

I can promise you this won’t be anything remotely close to what you might be thinking – and if it is, then we must have been created from the same mold up in heaven. I thought since my last several posts were on the more serious side, we’d take a break and laugh...

72-Hour Kits

It's hard not to hear about the California fires right now if you live in the U.S. - even if you live in Maine or as far away as Florida. Our hearts go out to the individuals who are dealing with the trauma of the experience, the reek of the smoke, and the rebuilding...

Family Fun

Michelangelo once said, when asked about his sculpting approaches, that he carved away everything that didn't belong in his statues. What a wise approach . . . and his statues have lasted for centuries. In many ways, his approach reminds me of the following phrase:...

Strengthening Marriage – the Mighty Weekly Date!

When was the last time, if married, that you went on a date? If it took more than three seconds to answer that question, you must be like me. Time blows by faster than we can turn, doesn't it? Before we know it, it's the weekend. And then before we can check, it's...

Perfect Church, Imperfect People

Teen Converts and Their Non-member Parents

I joined the church as a teenager, soon after my seventeenth birthday. My family didn’t join with me, and although they gave their permission for the baptism, my conversion made them nervous. I was fortunate to have a wise bishop who advised me to show my parents the...

Writing Your First Talk

The first time I was asked to teach a lesson, I said, “But I don’t know anything about this subject.” I was told, “Then that must be why God wanted you to teach it.” It can be overwhelming to be asked to give a talk when you don’t know anything about the subject...

The Old Testament – A Valued Testament

The news of today never ceases. School shootings. Fires. Drought. Job troubles. Spreading illnesses. Trouble in the housing market. It's. The prophets of long ago foresaw our day. Centuries ago they spoke quite clearly of the troubles that would plague the inhabitants...

You’re Quoting Who?

All men may be created equal but when it comes to web pages the exact opposite is something is published on a web site that does not mean that it should be taken as gospel. Just because a page of information pops up when you do a Google search that does not mean that...

Marie Osmond and the “Fainting Incident”

This isn't really the type of news I like to blog about. I mean, we're usually e Osmond passing out on live television doesn't quite fit. But it's so prominent in the media right now, I'm choosing to take the leap. So here it goes. During a live broadcast of Dancing...
