Joseph Smith, Prophet of the Restoration

This year marks the bicentennial of the First Vision of Joseph Smith.  This miraculous event in history has clarified so many facts about God the Father and Jesus Christ that the world was in darkness about for so long.  Now, thanks to a simple prayer that was uttered by a young boy 200 years ago, we have answers to many questions about the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Change of Heart, Change of Friends

When I opened my eyes again, I had a moment of clarity. I watched my friends acting foolishly and no longer saw myself belonging to that group. I left and decided to stop drinking and going to parties. That meant I would need to change my group of friends, which was not easy. But I did it.

The Godhead: One In Purpose

This experience turned out to be one of those moments when I knew that God had a plan for me and part of that plan was for me to learn of the true doctrine of Jesus Christ's Church.  I didn't know it at that moment, but the Holy Ghost, a member of the Godhead Himself, testified to me that what I was learning from the missionaries was indeed true.  I thirsted for more!  

Exaltation Is a Family Matter

My journey to the temple was not an easy one.  Try explaining to your strict Catholic-Italian father that not only will he not be able to walk his oldest daughter down the aisle, but that he will not be able to enter the temple to watch me be married either! 

Fight Song Missionary Mashup

I am eternally grateful that the Spirit of the Lord gave me my own personal witness that the message the missionaries delivered to me was of divine nature, and that if I were to be obedient to the things I learned for myself to be true, I would be blessed beyond measure.

Who Is Jesus Christ?

The Day I Met a Prophet of God

This is where the moment climaxed for me.  After all that had happened today, beginning with expecting nothing more than to feel honoured to be part of the security team for President Nelson and his travel companions, and receiving more than I ever could have dreamed or imagined, this was the moment I will never forget...the moment that will forever be etched in my mind and heart. 

We Must Be Broken So We Can Glow

I have suffered miscarriages, loneliness, fear, job loss, illnesses, and even some other personal struggles.  It was and is scary when we have to go through any kind of trial.  Being "broken" can hurt us, discourage us, and even shock us.

What We Believe

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are often asked a variety of questions about what "Mormons" believe.  Myself, as a convert to the Church, have been loaded with such questions.  "Are you still a Christian?".  "Do you celebrate Christmas and Easter?".  "Do you believe in the Trinity?"  These are just some of the questions I would receive from relatives, and school friends.

In the World But Not of the World

"The world around you is not equipped to provide the help you need to make it through this often-treacherous journey.  So many in our society today seem to have slipped from the moorings of safety and drifted from the harbor of peace.

Thanks Be To God

President Nelson once expressed, "How much better it would be if all could be more aware of God’s providence and love and express that gratitude to Him."
