A Nigerian Christmas

A Nigerian Christmas

In December 2007 a Mormon man from Brazil named Eduardo went on a business trip to Lagos, Nigeria. During his stay, he had the opportunity to attend a Christmas Party held at the local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was charmed by his video of the enthusiastic Yaba Ward Choir performing “Silent Night”. Enjoy! Continue reading

Being Like Jesus

Our Heavenly Father would not be the Perfect Father, nor Jesus our Perfect Shepherd, if they were content with us to remain just as we are now. Why? Because they know what we have the power to become! Continue reading

Temple At Sunset

The weather here in Utah has been very dramatic over the past week [to say the least]. Last night we were hit with a blizzard leaving 15 inches of snow in under 3 hours on my driveway [sadly, a branch from our beloved oak tree succumbed to the sudden weight]. However, March began delightfully balmy. … Continue reading

Find Beauty In The Storm

Recently I achieved a small victory and made it out of bed and into the gym before 5:30 am. I avoided the crowded kickboxing class and chose an elliptical machine in a quiet corner. Browsing through the small TV screen in front of me, I attempted to find something that would help me ignore my protesting muscles as I pushed … 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. As you may recall, not knowing that his new wife Esther was a Jew, King Ahasuerus of Persia was persuaded to approve a decree that all persons of Jewish descent should be … Continue reading

Global Casting Call For Bible Film Project

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is embarking on an ambitious, if slightly daunting, film project. The goal? To reinact every story told in the New Testament.

That’s a lot of stories! And, it requires a lot of people. Which means, whether you are a professional actor, or a novice, you have the potential to become a part of movie-making history. Continue reading

Fourteen Fundamentals Spotlighted at Conference

Every talk today was marvelous, inspiring, motivating and exciting. I have pages and pages of rapidly scribbled notes and impressions that I plan to make sense out of [and write subsequent brilliant blog posts of course]…soon! However, I want to quickly post about one of today’s “extra-ordinary” Conference moments! . . . Continue reading

Hi, I’m A Mormon Unplugged

Hi, I’m A Mormon Unplugged

Over the past year, the official Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint “website to the world” – MORMON.ORG – has been implementing a new, personalized format filled with searchable member profile pages, and video spotlights. If you have a facebook account, you’ve likely seen a few sidebar ads and videos featuring these individuals. It’s Mormons “unplugged”! Telling their stories, sharing their opinions, and faith, and lives, all in their own words. . . Continue reading
