About Jesus

Becoming Christian

Becoming Christian can seem like a very large leap into an entirely new lifestyle. However, for many people, particularly those who have practiced other faiths already, the process may not seem too complicated. It’s important to take it a few steps at a time and not...

What is Christianity?

Christianity is centered upon a belief in Jesus Christ as the Only Begotten Son of God, and that He is our Creator, Savior, and Redeemer. Central to Christianity is the knowledge that we are in a lost and fallen state. We are separated from God both physically and...

What Christmas Means to Me

I have always loved Christmas.  When I was a child I loved to decorate the tree with my mom, bake cookies for Santa, and to wake up to all the gifts on Christmas morning!  Now that I am an adult, Christmas has changed to mean something more. Growing up in a family...

The Spirit of Christmas Lights the World

What does Christmas mean to you? Presents? Lights? Giving? Spending time with family? Eating yummy food? All of these things are wonderful and good. I love them all. But more than that I love the source of it all, our Savior Jesus Christ. His birth was indeed...

Trials Can Bring Us Closer to Christ

Have you ever felt despondent? Alone? Afraid? Panicked? If so, you are completely normal! Sometimes in life, hard things happen—and as human beings we have feelings that accompany those trying times, usually painful feelings. But as a member of The Church of Jesus...

Learning about Jesus Christ through Experience

Would it be fair for someone to be expected to become a skilled wood carver if he has never even touched a knife, let alone a block of wood? Probably not. The same goes for learning the teachings of our Savior Jesus Christ—it takes practice, it takes work! Believe me,...

Following the Guidance of the Lord

In the Book of Mormon (a book revered as scripture by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, sometimes mistakenly called the “Mormon Church”) we learn about an ancient prophet, Lehi, and his family’s journey to a Promised Land in the Americas. On...

Scripture Study Brings Us Closer to Christ

Is scripture study important? I believe whole-heatedly that it is! As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (sometimes mistakenly called the “Mormon Church”), I follow the counsel from our prophets to be immersed in the scriptures every day. I...

God Gives Us Trials to Refine Us

Has anybody ever told you that the best of people go through the hardest trials? Why is that? It is because God is refining His people for a very special purpose. In a book titled, Be Not Afraid—Only Believe, written by Ted L. Gibbons, and published in 2009 by Cedar...

How Can I Trust God?

Do you trust God? And if you do, do you trust Him in your mind and heart? Occasionally God tests us to see if we really do trust Him. A couple of things I like to do when I am in a sticky situation where I need to trust the Father of my spirit is to: 1) think back on...

Becoming Like Christ

When I was little and Santa Claus ruled a large portion of my immediate universe, I was consumed with the idea of doing enough good deeds to warrant a place on his ‘good’ list for those children receiving lots of toys.  It didn’t matter what type of child I became –...

Pressing Forward With Faith in Jesus Christ

Ever wanted to give up on something? I know I sure have. I remember when I was in little-league baseball (even though I am a girl, I wanted to play with the boys) I wanted to quit one year because it was so hard—and I wasn’t getting any playing time. My parents said I...

Be Not Afraid

Have you ever had a fear or a worry? As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (inadvertently called the “Mormon Church” by some) I believe that Jesus Christ has paid the infinite price to make it so we need not ever fear. He has suffered so that...

What the Grace of Jesus Christ Does for Me

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, sometimes mistakenly called the “Mormon Church.”  Everything about the Mormon faith is meant to lead us to Christ.  We seek to emulate Him, and we call upon His grace to make us more than we can be on...

Jesus Christ is Our Rock

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (inadvertently called the “Mormon Church” by many), I am a firm believer that Jesus Christ is my Rock and my Redeemer. I know that with out Him I am nothing, but with Him I can be everything. In a book...

The Mormon Glow

It is 2012 and just days away from an important American election.  A Mormon (member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), Governor Mitt Romney, is leading the Republican ticket. The polls show him neck and neck with incumbent Barak Obama, and Mormons...

Overcoming Our Barriers to Grace

Sometimes I just want my life to look like I've got everything under control.  I don’t necessarily have to really have everything under control, just the outward appearance that I’m organized, self-sufficient and always calm.  And lately, I've realized this is a...

Trust In God and His Omniscience

Maybe you are like me… It seems every time I pray to be strengthened, in any given area of my life, I then receive a test that tries me deeply—specific to whatever I prayed for. Obviously I need to learn that Christ-like qualities are not handouts given to us at no...

God Answers Our Prayers

Do you believe that God answers the prayers of His children? Or what about your prayers? As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as the “Mormon Church” by friends of other faiths) I follow the counsel of my church leaders who teach...

Jesus Christ: Understanding His Atonement

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (often called the Mormon Church) regard the Atonement of Jesus Christ as the most sacred event to occur in the history of the earth. Knowledge of two great truths is essential to understanding the Atonement of...

Choose Faith in Jesus Christ and Blessings Will Come

Do you ever wonder how everything seems to miraculously work out? Sometimes our problems don’t always resolve right away, or in the way we would have planned; but they do resolve—if we put our trust in the Lord. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day...

These Things Shall Give Thee Experience

Have you ever heard the common expression that life is not fair?  And have you ever had a day where you felt you could be the spokesperson for such a phrase?  I’ve had lots of those days.  Fortunately, when these days come, it gives me the chance to think about my...

Our Lord Jesus Christ Knows Us Individually

Do you ever wonder if anybody knows what you are going through, or if anybody cares? Sometimes that thought crosses my mind, but then I am reminded by the whispering of the Still Small Voice (the Holy Ghost) that the Lord knows exactly what I am going through and that...

Believing Christ: Choosing the Better Part

When I was a senior in high school, I lacked one English credit needed to graduate. I had extra credit for  many extracurricular activities. I liked school and took advantage of every opportunity afforded me. I applied to the school board to skip my senior year and go...

God’s Creations Testify That He Loves Me

In the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ (revered as sacred text by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, often called the “Mormon Church”) there is a scripture I have always loved and been drawn to; it is found in the book of...

How Mormons Come Close to Jesus Christ

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (often called the “Mormon Church” by friends of other faiths), as such I am a believer in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. I love Him, I praise Him, and I adore Him. Jesus Christ is the Savior and...

Trials Bring Us to the Lord Jesus Christ

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as the “Mormon Church” by friends of other faiths) my heart resonated with these words found in a book titled, Be Not Afraid—Only Believe, written by Ted L. Gibbons, and published in 2009 by...
