How Do I Know Jesus Loves Me?

How Do I Know Jesus Loves Me?

by Travis (Guest Blogger) How do I know that my Savior loves me? There was a time where I was asking this very same question in my own life.

The Peace the Gospel Brings

The Peace the Gospel Brings

by Ryan L. (Guest Blogger) I recently got back from a full time mission in Scotland and Ireland for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. An LDS Missionary’s purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end.

When Words are Not Enough: Why Music Means so Much to Me

by Chantel I once read a story of a musician who wrote a song based on his experience of jumping out of a plane in war.

The question was never IF I would serve a mission, the question was more where would I be going to serve a mission.

I have a love for…Read more …
Why Do I Keep the Sabbath Day Holy?

Why Do I Keep the Sabbath Day Holy?

By Aaron (Guest Blogger) Growing up as a kid I was always told that I couldn’t hang out with friends or play certain video games on Sunday. At the time it just seemed like another dumb rule that my parents had implemented just because they could. Over time, as I matured, I was able to see the importance of these rules. It not only made the Lord happy, but it blessed my life. It took a while for this valuable principle to stick, but I was able to see the importance of it…Read more …
