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!  

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.

Overcoming the Plague of Addiction

When someone struggles with an addiction, it’s important to know that there is hope. There are people every single day all around the world who are able to find freedom from the substance or behavior holding them hostage.

Who Is Jesus Christ?

Here is an animation that gives a short but poignant portrait of Jesus Christ and His relevance to each of us.  If you would like to learn more, click on the link below the video.

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." 

Stand Up, Speak Up, and Shine

I usually look forward to speaking about the gospel of Jesus Christ, especially to those who are genuinely asking out of curiosity or interest.  Defending my faith is something I feel is important to do and in the years of practice, I have learned that sometimes our actions speak louder than words.

A Real Father

A true story showing the love of an adoptive father to his children.  What a remarkable way he explained the "amazing adoption club" to his children.  I truly admire both the adoptive parents and parents who have had to give their children up for adoption.  It takes much strength, courage, and love and I think they are wonderful.

Extending the Easter Season

Often we get so focused on the commercial part of Christmas and Easter that we forget the true purpose of the sacred event. Once the day has passed, some may feel relief that it's all over and move on to the next thing, whatever that may be.  I love this article because it clearly demonstrates how we can enjoy this holy time even when it's over, and the teachings of Jesus Christ don't have to be limited to just the one day.  The hustle and bustle of the commercialism that overwhelms us are out of the way and our focus is adjusted to what we should be truly celebrating--Jesus Christ.  THIS IS GREAT NEWS!
