The Secret to Lasting Peace and Comfort

Life isn’t easy. I’ve written a couple of times now about pain, loss, and death and it’s a recurring question and dilemma for a lot of good people: Why did this have to happen? How will I survive…? Is there anything anywhere that will ever make it right again? If you’re a Christian—and whether that’s a Reformed Christian, a Mormon Christian, or some other version … Continue reading The Secret to Lasting Peace and Comfort

Pain, Loss, and The Purpose of Life

This is a topic that will likely take more than one post to address. There are a lot of insights, opinions, and revealed truths I can share, but it will likely take more time than today to do so (my wife tells me I should consider making my posts shorter which I plan to do, at least as much as possible; that was already a … Continue reading Pain, Loss, and The Purpose of Life

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

Come Follow Me. It’s Never, Ever Too Late

I love videos. My wife and I are big movie buffs and I’ve always loved the quality of the digital work the Church puts out. You may have noticed that I’ve posted several new posts today (and dated them over the next 5 days). That’s because I’m going camping on the Oregon Coast, starting tomorrow, with my wife’s family for their family reunion. We’re headed … Continue reading Come Follow Me. It’s Never, Ever Too Late

Celebrate Christmas All Year Long

Speaking of “celebrating Christmas” in July, if you haven’t seen this video put out by the LDS church last Christmas, you’ve gotta check it out. I can’t wait until December to share it with you! Like I said in my last post, we should all “think on Christ” ALL year long, not only in December during the Christmas season. Here’s the video I’m referring to. … Continue reading Celebrate Christmas All Year Long

We Will Raise Our Voices Together

As you get to know yours truly and this Daily Mormon blog, I hope you start to understand my primary purpose and intent in writing. It’s simply this: I’m a firm believer that, while there is an ongoing battle between good and evil and, at times, it seems that the dark side might be winning, they aren’t and they never will. We know that in … Continue reading We Will Raise Our Voices Together

All is Possible … Because of Jesus Christ

I promised I’d try to keep these posts short. Suffice it to say, the incorrect claim … the misconception … the belief that we Mormons aren’t Christians is about as ludicrous as they come. The name of the Church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It carries His name and we follow His example and try to serve as He served in so many different … Continue reading All is Possible … Because of Jesus Christ
