This Isn’t the “Church of The Mormons”

Russel M. Nelson, the current prophet and president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, made national news recently when he shared that he has received continuous revelation indicating the Savior is unhappy with us designating ourselves as Mormons or the Church as the Mormon church. This came as a bit of surprise, especially with the Church itself’s branding of items like the … Continue reading This Isn’t the “Church of The Mormons”

My Favorite Prophet Quote of All Time

It’s late and I have a very early morning tomorrow so I’m going to just, quick, share with you my favorite quote of all time this evening, then possibly add to the topic tomorrow or maybe later this week. My post yesterday was so long I promised I’d keep my thoughts short today, so here they are. One of the most gratifying things about being … Continue reading My Favorite Prophet Quote of All Time

Special Witness: Russel M. Nelson, Prophet

I’ve been wanting to introduce you to each of the members of the First Presidency of the Church, President Russel M. Nelson, and his two counselors Elders Eyring and Oaks, as well as the rest of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. Each is unique.

The Testimony of a Living Prophet of God

Joseph Smith Jr. was called to be a prophet in Upstate New York in the Spring of 1820. He and his brother Hyrum Smith were martyred by a mob in Carthage, Illinois on June 27, 1844. Joseph was followed by President Brigham Young, the so-called “American Moses,” and second prophet of the Church, who led the early members of the Church cross-country to the mountain … Continue reading The Testimony of a Living Prophet of God

Truth and Evidence # 1—The Pattern

  This is the first post of many I plan to make highlighting a variety of “proofs/evidences” confirming the truthfulness of The Book of Mormon, and with it, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The first point is the simple fact that the manner in which Joseph Smith was called to be a prophet and the Restoration of the Gospel came about was … Continue reading Truth and Evidence # 1—The Pattern

The Testimony of a Real Prophet of God

Three things you’re probably starting to come to decipher about me by now: (1) I’m not a great writer. I mean, I try and I do alright. I do enjoy writing and think I have a bit of talent. (Like many, I have aspirations of writing the Next Great American Novel someday). But, writing takes talent (of which I have little) and, even more so, … Continue reading The Testimony of a Real Prophet of God

Guest Post: The Love of a Living Prophet

I read a blog this evening with an incredible write-up about our last living prophet, beloved by one and all, President Thomas S. Monson. I thought it was really well done and thought you might enjoy it. It’s really great and insightful to say the least. Thank you for sharing, Patrick Laing – Portland, Oregon USA Click Here to Read the Post Continue reading Guest Post: The Love of a Living Prophet

The Stone Cut From the Mountainside

I wanted to do at least one post telling the story of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the “Restoration of the Fullness of Times” as we refer to it as Mormons. This is as good an example as any. It’s a talk given by the former prophet and President of the Church, Gordon B. Hinckley, in October 2007. (This post isn’t very … Continue reading The Stone Cut From the Mountainside
