Worldwide LDS Church Statistics

It’s late and I’ve gotta go to bed. I’m getting up in 5 hours (at 3:30 am!) to go fishing again with my atheist friend, Jerry, so I’m going to make tonight’s post short and sweet. Following are the current “Worldwide Statistics” for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued the following … Continue reading Worldwide LDS Church Statistics

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.

Here’s one clip to show you what … Continue reading Guest Post: A Tale of Two Cool Churches

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
