On 9/11 God Sent Angels

Jeffrey R. Holland once said “In times of great need, God sends angels” (Oct 2008). There was no time of greater need than during the American tragedy of September 11, 2001.

It’s More Than The Music

It’s More Than The Music

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir [affectionately known as “MoTab”] began in 1847, just 29 days after the Mormon pioneers entered the barren landscape of the Salt Lake City valley. Out of the most humble of circumstances that little choir would eventually grow into one of the most well-known musical organizations nationally, and internationally. In the 1980’s U.S. President Ronald … Continue reading

The Faith of Esther

A beautiful new video has been released that depicts a portion of the Old Testament account of Queen Esther, and the events that led to her great act of faith.

Christmas Every Day In India

When I heard the story of Narayanan Krishnan, my heart was deeply touched and I was moved to tears. I cannot think of a better story to share as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ – whose ministry was devoted to the  forgotten and neediest of society.

Smith’s Testimony Shines in Video

Latter-day Saint student and film maker Seth Adam Smith has been creating and sharing poignant YouTube videos since the mid 2000’s. Many of these have been featured at Mormon Soprano.

I add my witness, and share this remarkable video with you. Continue reading

Catholics and Mormons: United We Stand

Catholics and Mormons: United We Stand
