This blog is a place for people to find uplifting quotes, scriptures, talks, and pictures about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (more commonly known as the Mormon church).
We've been asked to help spread the gospel online. Elder M. Russel Ballard said, "There are conversations going on about the Church constantly. Those conversations will continue whether or not we choose to participate in them. But we cannot stand on the sidelines while others, including our critics, attempt to define what the Church teaches. While some conversations have audiences in the thousands or even millions, most are much, much smaller. But all conversations have an impact on those who participate in them. Perceptions of the Church are established one conversation at a time."
If you're a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, don't be afraid to spread the gospel on the internet. You never know whose life you could change.
If you're curious about the church, don't be afraid to ask questions or check out www.mormon.org. Thanks, guys. :)

My brothers and sisters, to express gratitude is gracious and honorable, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live with gratitude ever in our hearts is to touch heaven.
President Thomas S. Monson, General Conference, October 2010
“You are these valiant and noble sons [and daughters] of our Father! You are the strength of the Lord’s house, His warriors! You are those who chose good over evil and who exhibited ‘exceedingly great faith’ and ‘good works.’ And because of your personal history, you were entrusted to come to the earth in these last days to do again what you did before—to once again choose good over evil, exercise exceedingly great faith, and perform good works—and to do so in behalf of the kingdom of God on the earth and your fellowman!
With God’s kingdom restored to the earth and your entry into the world, Satan knows that “he hath but a short time.” Therefore, Satan is marshallingeveryresource at his disposal to entice you into transgression. He knows that if he can draw you into transgression, he may prevent you from serving a full-time mission, marrying in the temple, and securing your future children in the faith, all of which weakens not only you but the Church. He knows that nothing can overthrow God’s kingdom “save it [be] the transgression of [his] people.” Make no mistake about it—the focus of his war is now on you—you who seek to “keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
Now, you may wonder how to acquire the faith, testimony, and consecration of spirit necessary to overcome the adversary. Let me assure you that these qualities are already within you. You simply need to recover them.”

The same God that placed that star in a precise orbit millennia before it appeared over Bethlehem in celebration of the birth of the Babe has given at least equal attention to placement of each of us in precise human orbits so that we may, if we will, illuminate the landscape of our individual lives, so that our light may not only lead others but warm them as well.

This is one of my all-time favorite videos. It’s “Advice from Elder Busche,” of the Quorum of the 70. This is some of the best advice that is all placed together in the same spot. It’s beautiful.
I have been saving posting this video for a while now. I hope you watch it (it’s only seven minutes long) and I hope you feel just a portion of the amount of peace that this brings to me. The spirit is so strong as you watch it, and everything he says is true. It applies to members and non-members of the LDS faith in a brilliant way, and shows some of the principles that we really try to live by. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do. :)
