Spread the Good Word: Psalm 18:21

How blessed is the person who can honestly speak the words in this Psalm with a clean conscience? Even though we fail and fall short of Christ's standards every day, when we repent and get back on that narrow road, when our hands once again grasp the rod of iron, we're back on the Way.

Passing the Torch (Mosiah 1)

Written by Brother Jerry Valenti on Wednesday, 26 April 2017. Posted in Scripture Study Hits 373

Passing the Torch (Mosiah 1)

One of the traditions associated with the Olympic games is that a torch is carried from the ancient site of Olympia in Greece (where the Olympic Games were originally held in ancient times) to whatever city in whatever country the Olympics are taking place that particular year.

Needless to say, the journey, which can encompass thousands of miles and even cross continents, is way more than a single person can accomplish. So, there are designated points where the torch bearer passes the torch to another person who then continues the journey with the process continuing until the journey ends with the torch being placed at the site of the games.

How Do You Sing?

How Do You Sing?

Today's article is another installment in Brother P.'s column, "Lessons From the Nursing Home."

If you have a memory better than mine, then you may remember that I work in a nursing home. The nursing home has a way of bringing the Christians in the community through its doors.

We often have various churches performing services, singers singing, players playing (piano, guitar, flute, etc.) and we even have a couple Christian schools bring in students to do activities with the residents. (Our branch has even gone a few times for Christmas caroling). Sometimes the visitors are talented … sometimes not so talented. But no matter; the residents love the attention.

Long Lost ... Again

Long Lost ... Again

For our lost-and-found theme, we're republishing a Miracle Monday from Jan. 25, 2016 by Sister Linda Scolaro.

It was Christmas Eve, and my husband and I were busy dividing and conquering, running errands, doing last-minute grocery shopping and spending a lot of time cooking for our Christmas dinner.

First, my husband misplaced his wedding band and college ring. He calmly said, “It will turn up.” At the end of the evening, I emptied my pockets, and my wedding band was gone as well. I slept uneasily, but I resolved that I would look for the ring after all of our Christmas festivities were over.

Missionary Spotlight: Trip to Ecuador

Did you know that 14 years ago Brother Richard Christman made a trip to Quito, Ecuador, and we now have a mission of eight members? That’s how news of the Restored Gospel spreads.

Recently, Brothers Ken Lombardo and Noah Comacho traveled to Quito to do the usual “missionary things” that you would expect to hear about. They held services, met with various people interested in hearing about the Gospel, anointed the sick, blessed two babies, counseled someone who asked for baptism, bought a microwave for the mission and a computer so the saints can have meetings via Skype.

Fruitful Women: The Faith of Mary and Martha

Fruitful Women: The Faith of Mary and Martha

In continuation of my Fruitful Women Series, where women of scripture have been aligned with a fruit of the spirit that they demonstrate, today’s fruit of the spirit is faith. Faith applies to many women described in scripture; however, I have chosen Mary and Martha, and here is why.

As the story goes, Mary and Martha’s brother, Lazarus, died. As to be expected, they were grieving the loss of their brother. As soon as Martha heard that Christ was nearby, she ran to greet him. She had a dialogue with Christ, but something important that Martha says is found in John 11:21-22:

"Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.”

The Words of Mormon

The Words of Mormon

OK, who is Mormon and why do we care about his words?

Is Mormon the founder of the Mormon church? No, he’s not.

Is he the author of the Book of Mormon? Well, sort of, but not exactly.

Mormon is best described as the historian of his time, the keeper of all the various books and writings of men like Lehi, Nephi, Mosiah, Alma, etc.

The Bible Says You Don't Have to Exercise

Written by Sister Stefanie Callens on Tuesday, 18 April 2017. Posted in Devotional Hits 408

The Bible Says You Don't Have to Exercise

People can find scripture to support their views on just about anything, regardless of what it is. There are scriptures that suggest it's OK to have more than one wife, you can drink and be merry, or you can kill someone for their wrongdoing. These verses are often taken out of context, or the laws changed after Jesus came.

1 Timothy 4:8 is one of these verses. Those people who hate exercise and simply don’t want to do it can rightfully say that the Bible states that we "don’t have to" exercise. "For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come."

The Tale of the Errant Earring

The Tale of the Errant Earring

Today's lost-and-found Miracle Monday is a real gem submitted by Sister Alicia Draskovich.

I was taking off my diamond stud earrings one evening in my bedroom next to my jewelry box. I lost my grip on one, and it fell to the floor. I immediately got down and began hunting for it. Since I have fairly thick, shaggy carpet it was not an easy task. I scoured the entire area, got down on my hands and knees, and ran my fingers through the carpet, hoping it would pop up. I could not find it anywhere.

Happy Easter Sunday!

Happy Easter Sunday!

He arose! May the following words of truth fall sweetly upon your ears this morning. 

And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. ... Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them. – Genesis 3:7, 21

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. – Isaiah 53:5

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. – Luke 4:18-19

Spread the Good Word: Psalm 18:6

Anyone who has called and cried to God has probably, at one point or another, felt like their pleas fell on deaf ears. Sometimes it seems like our prayers never float higher than the ceiling. But this Psalm reminds us that our prayers come before Him ... even into His ears.

I Wish I Knew God

Written by Sister Colleen Moore on Thursday, 13 April 2017. Posted in Devotional Hits 400

I Wish I Knew God

I recently had a friend of mine tell me that she “wished she knew God the way I did.” It made me think about how I never want to take my spiritual relationship for granted. I call out to Him and know He hears me. He gives me peace that can never be compared to anything the world offers. I pray to Him and feel like I’m having a conversation with the Lord. I don’t feel like I’m just saying “words”… I feel a connection with God that runs deep into my soul.

God was always a part of our home when I was growing up. I can’t imagine my life without Him. I don’t ever want to take Him for granted, and I’m so thankful that He’s always there for me.

The Book of You (Omni)

Written by Brother Jerry Valenti on Wednesday, 12 April 2017. Posted in Scripture Study Hits 411

The Book of You (Omni)

The Book of Omni (similar to the preceding books of Enos and Jarom) consists of only a single chapter. However, the title of this book is actually misleading. Omni, the son of Jarom, refers to himself as a wicked man with no relationship with God and, as a result, adds only three verses to the record before passing it on to his son, Amaron.

Amaron, also with nothing to say regarding a relationship with God, adds a mere five verses and passes the record to his brother Chemish, who wins the prize for the shortest “book,” writing just a single verse — and using that verse to call out his brother for waiting to write his part until the day he passed the record over!

Embrace the Peculiarity

Embrace the Peculiarity

This article is Part 6 of Sister Natalie Shawver's series “Born and Raised”…Or Not.

Sister Wendy Giannetti was only 17 years old when she first walked into The Church of Jesus Christ. Sister Brianne Gehly? A year younger. Brothers Bob Batson and Frank Natoli were 18 and 19, respectively.

Although these handful of saints met our beloved gem in their teens, we hear of others meeting the church at any age — there’s no wrong time to learn about the Gospel.
