Where In Lies My Faith?

Where In Lies My Faith?

"Is our faith focused on simply wanting to be relieved of pain and suffering, or is it firmly centered on God the Father and His holy plan and in Jesus the Christ and His Atonement?"
Elder Donald L. Hallstrom





Fathers

Fathers

"We believe in “the ideal of the man who puts his family first.” We believe that “by divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families.” We believe that far from being superfluous, fathers are unique and irreplaceable."

D. Todd Christofferson





I Go To Church

I Go To Church

 Church has not, nor is not always the peaceful joyful experience I would like it to be. And it's almost never easy to get there.  But besides the wiggling, poking and sometimes really ornery behavior, there's the deeper purpose.  And it's worth it. 





Daughters of God

Daughters of God

Heavenly Father loves His daughters. He needs each of our unique talents and gifts. We will never know the scope of our reach, just as we can never truly comprehend the scope of His love for us in this life. 





The Ten Virgins, I finally get it...

The Ten Virgins, I finally get it... by Laurie Smith

I've always struggled with the parable of the Ten Virgins.  I understood the "be prepared" part, but I just couldn't grasp the lack of charity.  Doesn't Christ teach us to give and help those in need?
