Thinking About Heaven

Thinking About Heaven

By: Stockton Recently, my older brother returned home from serving his 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints.  Since he’s been home I've been  thinking about how a mission is similar to our earth life.  It was hard for our family to send him to Mexico City and have to go without spending time with him for so long. This is similar to how our Heavenly Father felt when he sent us to earth. Another interesting thing that comes to mind is how we are still able to…Read more …

Who Captains Your Ship?

Who Captains Your Ship?

By Kaitlyn B./ Photo Credit: Intermedia Imagine you are on a ship. The ship is large and unfamiliar to you. As you sail through a seemingly endless sea, storms often come. Many of these storms are almost too much for your ship to take despite the size and stability of it. The ship maker was very proficient, but despite the quality of the ship the only thing you can think while you attempt to navigate through the threatening waves is how inadequate your ship seems in the face of such large waves. It's impossible. What's…Read more …

Wellness and the Word of Wisdom

Wellness and the Word of Wisdom

By Lincoln The Lord has given us certain commandments for us to follow. God has placed these commandments in our lives because He loves us, and wants us to become like Him. Our Heavenly Father has only provided us with these commandments  because He knows what is best for us.  We are free to choose if we desire to follow and obey what God has asked us to do, or disregard what He has said. We, however, are not free to choose the consequences of our actions, whether they be good or bad.…Read more …
He is the Gift

He is the Gift

By Whitney He is the Gift  The first gift was not wrapped, had no bow, wasn't purchased online or in a store. The first gift of Christmas was a simple gift, a sacred gift. It wasn't gold or frankincense or myrrh. It was a gift of love and life and peace and hope, given by a father to all His children. For God so loved the world, and so loved you and you and you and every single one of us. He gave His son. He is the Christ. He is Christmas. He…Read more …
