Joseph Smith the Prophet’s Own Testimony

I talk often about “going to the source” when you’re seeking information/truth … talking to Mormons (vs. anti-Mormons) about Mormonism, reading The Book of Mormon for yourself if you want to know if it’s true, not just taking someone else’s word for it, etc., etc. Along this same line of thought, you really can’t do much better than to read Joseph Smith’s own testimony of his … Continue reading Joseph Smith the Prophet’s Own Testimony

How Gladys Knight Became a Mormon

Most of us aren’t famous or even significant in the eyes of the world. The majority of us will never be celebrities, let alone see our names up in lights or, likely, even be recognized outside of our own small circles. But, for a few, this is part of their walk in life. Grammy award-winning singer, Gladys Knight, is one of these. She’s also a … Continue reading How Gladys Knight Became a Mormon

LDS Digital Ninja: Greg Trimble

Personally, I’ve always enjoyed writing, sharing my testimony of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, and standing up for my religion and my faith (two different things in some ways). I decided to start this blog, The Daily Mormon, though, specifically, after reading an extraordinary book by expert-blogger, writer, and entrepreneur, Greg Trimble (check out his personal blog by Clicking Here and visit his business websites as … Continue reading LDS Digital Ninja: Greg Trimble

What To Do About Haters (Just Love ‘Em)

Call today’s post a “two-for-one,” if you will—first, a story of a man who left the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for 25 years, became an outspoken anti-Mormon critic, then finally returned and, second, a guest post about how to handle “haters” (i.e. those who may be struggling with their own faith, their views of the Church, or as is usually the case, … Continue reading What To Do About Haters (Just Love ‘Em)

I Speak Unto You As If Ye Were Present

One of my favorite set of verses from The Book of Mormon – Another Testament of Jesus Christ is a prophecy from the last prophet in the book and son of the prophet historian, Mormon, Moroni. It’s one of the most poignant messages in the book, in my opinion, since he speaks directly to us and shares an example of how the Lord guided him … Continue reading I Speak Unto You As If Ye Were Present

Guest Post: Finding Peace/Joy in Death

Originally posted on Latter-Day Disciple:
Last week, a good friend of a good friend passed away. This young man had bravely and faithfully fought cancer for five exhausting years, almost since he and his wife had been married. The news of his passing left us – virtual strangers to him – in tears. We mourned for his wife and 3-month old twin sons. We were… Continue reading Guest Post: Finding Peace/Joy in Death

LDS Opera Singer: Patrice Tipoki Arkins

Here’s another great I’m a Mormon testimonial from about as far away as you can get from here in Portland, Oregon (USA), this one about a Mormon opera singer from Sidney, Australia, Patrice Tipoki Arkins. While music is important to many of us and most definitely to the Church as a whole—I personally love all kinds of genres from country to R & B to rock … Continue reading LDS Opera Singer: Patrice Tipoki Arkins

Epic Documentary: Meet the Mormons

Speaking of “going to the source,” one of my favorite introductions to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the award-winning 2014 documentary, Meet the Mormons, which highlights six different members of the Church, their stories, and how their faith is manifest in their individual lives. It’s one of the best “glimpses,” in my opinion, into what makes Mormons “tick” that I’ve ever … Continue reading Epic Documentary: Meet the Mormons

The Spirit of Mormon Historical Sites

If you’re searching for answers and really do want to know the truth about Mormonism for yourself, you know if you’ve read my earlier posts that I’m a big proponent of “going straight to the source”—i.e. speaking with active members of the Church and not relying on the misconstrued, misdirected, or downright misrepresentative writings of non-Mormon and/or anti-Mormon individuals since they usually have one main … Continue reading The Spirit of Mormon Historical Sites

Guest Post: A Tale of Two Cool Churches

I had a visitor to my blog so I visited her blog, BeautyBeyondBones, in return and just read the most insightful and well-written post, I have to say. She’s an accomplished writer, a devout Catholic, and a cool person who offers a perspective I think we could all benefit from. I thought I’d share with you the post. Here’s one clip to show you what … Continue reading Guest Post: A Tale of Two Cool Churches
