Can Adversity Draw Us Closer to Jesus Christ?

Why is it that so many of us try to conquer life by ourselves, when in fact we have a Savior who has already experienced all pains, sorrows, sins, and adversity so that we don’t have to be “on our own?” We don’t have to do it alone! I am a member of The Church of...

Life After Death: Meant to Live Forever

Why does the Savior Jesus Christ teach that we must be like little children? Funny, when I was young all I wanted to do was to grow up; now that I am “grown up” my whole life is dedicated to trying to be more like a child. I had the privilege at age three to have my...

God the Father: He is our Loving Parent

About God: Who is He?

In today’s world, people often wonder, “Who is God?” The next questions that often come up are: Does He know me? Do I matter to Him? These are age-old questions, and really the questions of life. If we know the answers to these questions, then we can put our life on...

Peace: Finding Deep & Abiding Contentment

Losing the Holy Spirit

How Can I Recognize the Holy Spirit?

Our Financial Refiner’s Fire

In the summer of 2007, my husband and I moved our kids almost 1,000 miles from one Rocky Mountain town to another several states away. We knew spiritually it was right. And it was a great move for all of us in every way…except financially. It was the largest dichotomy...

Heartache and Hope

I have had as many miscarriages as babies born: four of each. After I survived a foreclosure and bankruptcy, I thought I could handle any trial that the Lord sent me. So He tested me, and boy, was I wrong. The financial trials were humbling, but the next wave of...

Jesus Heals – Learning from our Trials

For someone who wanted a bunch of kids, I was certainly not looking forward to a third pregnancy. I was puzzled by my feelings. My first two pregnancies had been uncomfortable but uneventful, and there was no real reason why I should dread a third one. But here I was,...

Jesus Heals — Losing Everything, Finding Christ

What value have our worldly possessions? Surely, we need food to eat, and shelter from the elements. How much more do we need? How much effort, how much sacrifice should we make to have useful, or even pretty things? My parents were solidly middle class, although my...

Jesus Heals — I was Raised by a Narcissistic Mother

My mother hated her mother. She used to tell me some of the awful things her mother said to her as she was growing up. My grandmother lived in Philadelphia and was estranged from everyone, except my uncle, and he could barely tolerate her. We had begun our family life...

Easter in Mormonism

Easter is arguably the most holy day in Christianity. Ironically, the word Easter is never mentioned in the Old Testament and mentioned only once in the New Testament in the book of Acts 12:4.  (See online Bible.) The scriptural usage is not in reference to anything...

Recognizing God’s Voice

Because we can no longer see God, it can seem as though He is a distant relative on a long journey without any way to send messages at home. The scriptures are wonderful, but a lot has changed since Biblical times and we don’t always know how to adjust the information...

Why are There So Many Churches Today?

All Christian churches have the same goal: to bring people closer to the Savior, Jesus Christ. The goal is the same, but some of the doctrines and teachings are different. The scriptures teach, “Jesus Christ [is] the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews...
