Welcome to the AllAboutMormons.com blog! The purpose of this blog is to discuss topics that are important to those who wish to begin new lives as Mormon Christians, be they investigators, recent converts, or “inactives” who want to return to full Church activity.

Introduction I've been surprised at the number of messages this site receives from Hindus interested in learning more about Christianity. This article is designed to help those who wish to become Christians. There are many denominations within Christianity, as in Hinduism (e.g, Vaishnavism, Shaivism, Shaktism, Smartism, etc.). I've found great joy in a worldwide Christian church called The Church of Jesus Christ...

My good friend Lucia recently told me her brother is struggling with cancer. He lives in Ecuador and doesn't have the means to pay for his treatment. Her family is raising money for his medical bills on GoFundMe.com. Please click here to donate.

The "Mormon Church" has produced another fun Christmas video this year.

In this touching video, a young girl quietly teaches her worried family about the true meaning of Christmas. Don't fall into the trap of Christmas-time business this year! Take some time out to contemplate the real "reason for the season." I love the quote at the end of the video: "To catch the real meaning of the spirit of Christmas, we...

Music is one of the best things about Christmas. For me, there's no better way to feel Christ's spirit than to listen to songs about His birth and mission. I've created a page that contains some of my favorite Christmas carols. I also recently learned that the Mormon Channel has created an online, commercial-free radio station that plays Christmas Music,...

I'm...
