I have a friend... let's call her Sarah... who is particularly wise. I decided to create a page with striking ideas (sometimes paraphrased) that I hear her say. I'll throw in some of my own ideas too that are inspired by her kind of thinking. There's a big difference between administering and ministering. We need to understand that better in the church. People who seek...

Dear FL. I'm happy to hear you've made the decision to be baptized! It's such a blessing to be a member of this church. I hope you find the same peace that I and so many others have found here.

Her family is raising money for his medical bills on GoFundMe.com. Please click here to donate. I don't typically post things like this, but Lucia has regularly answered questions on this site for over five...

In the spirit of Christmas, five wonderful Christmas songs have been hand-selected as a free gift from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square. Click this link to download the five-song sampler!
