Why Would God Love a Person Like Me?

Why Would God Love a Person Like Me?

by Clancey I direct this to those of you who are depressed, discouraged and heartbroken; to you who have feelings of being unloved, unimportant and of no worth. I ask: Why would you ever think that you are lesser than those around you? Was it something someone said? Was it something you did? Was something someone did to you? I do not know, but I do know, however, that it is a lie. If you have not realized this, realize it now. Satan is real. He is, "The Great Deceiver” as Elder Marion G. Romney labeled…Read more …
What is the Greatest Gift Man Has Ever Received?

What is the Greatest Gift Man Has Ever Received?

by Rachel A few years ago at Christmas time, my family and I had the opportunity of meeting a man named Robert.   The lines and creases on his face made him look older than 62. His body was frail and bent. He had a gray beard and soft brown eyes. Robert had been diagnosed with a persistent lung disease that left him struggling to breathe. Although physically, he had some real challenges, there was something endearing in his smile and a sparkle in his eyes. We could sense a kindness in his spirit and…Read more …
Seeing Others as Christ Sees Them

Seeing Others as Christ Sees Them

by Tommy In the book by Allen Paton, “Cry the Beloved Country”, the main character, John Kumalo, (he is a black priest) is on his way to a town that is about 15 miles away.

Inspirational Interactive Storybooks for Kids

By Eric I simply love children’s books. The idea of digging deep into my imagination and telling a story with pictures and characters seemed amazing. Many evenings were spent in deep imagination with pen and pencil in hopes of following a dream. Fast forward a couple of decades and I find myself working as a graphic designer for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My workspace is typical; a computer, phone, and job folders. Some days it feels like there is very little time to think about being creative, deadlines loom…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 …

Hinckley’s Nine Be’s

By Ambree One of my favorite quotes of all time is found in a book titled “Way to Be” by President Gordon B. Hinckley, a beloved prophet and former president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints . He said, “Be Grateful, Be Smart, Be Clean, Be True, Be Humble, Be Prayerful, Be Positive, Be Still, and Be Involved.” When I first thought about those 9 – “Be’s” and how they relate to my life I could see that I could improve on each one of them.  I also knew that if…Read more …
