Guess Who No. 2

Guess Who No. 2

Calling all brainy brothers and smarty-pants sisters. Test your memory with another fun game of Guess Who. Look for answers in the Bible and the Book of Mormon.

1. I didn't have a good reputation among my peers because people who worked in my profession were looked at as the lowest of the low. But one day, the Master saw something different in me. He said, "Follow me." That's all I needed to hear, and I left the old life behind for my new life with Him.

Blogger's Choice: Little Goalie

Blogger's Choice: Little Goalie

Today's Blogger's Choice article is from Sister Vicki Ali. She chose "Little Goalie," originally published on May 21, 2013, although "Heat of Battle" from Nov. 6, 2013 came in a close second.

She says, "I liked the 'Little Goalie' article because I always see so many spiritual lessons in sports and coaching."

You Are What You Eat

You Are What You Eat

I recently discovered that with my Amazon Prime account I can watch SpongeBob for free. This came at a time when I was very stressed at the end of my college semester because, not only did I have to prepare for all of my finals, but, as part of my job, I needed to ensure that several other students also passed their finals.

The coincidence of these events led me to develop a strange daily routine where I spent any moment of free time watching SpongeBob SquarePants.

I Can't Find Anything

I Can't Find Anything

Just a reminder, this month's Miracle Monday theme is "anointing with oil." We hope this testimony by Sister Carmela Gray encourages you and increases your faith in God's healing power.

This account happened some 15 years ago or so. I had a mammogram on a Monday. Tuesday evening, I got a call from my doctor saying something showed up on the film, and he made an appointment for a biopsy on Thursday morning. He was very concerned.

This Do in Remembrance of Me

Written by Brother David Nolfi on Thursday, 11 June 2015. Posted in Devotional Hits 2359

This Do in Remembrance of Me

It was a blessed and somber moment in the upper room as the Lord paused to place before His disciples the bread and wine sacrament. His words reached deep into their souls as they listened and observed Him bless and break the bread and pour the wine. As they ate the bread and drank the wine, the holiness of this precious deed was forever written into their hearts.

Not knowing the full intent of this consecrated act yet, at this very significant point in time, they saw Jesus Christ set into motion a most holy and sacred ordinance. It reaches down through the ages of time to be a cornerstone of doctrine celebrated by the Brothers and Sisters within The Church of Jesus Christ.

Blogger's Choice: Worry Is a Sin

Written by Sister Michelle Watson on Wednesday, 10 June 2015. Posted in Devotional Hits 2359

Blogger's Choice: Worry Is a Sin

Today's Blogger's Choice spotlight is from Sister Michelle Watson. She chose her article "Worry Is a Sin," originally published on May 10, 2012.

She says, "This is one of my favorite articles because it just rings so true for me. There are so many things that I do — like worrying — that I don't consider a big deal, but they undermine my faith in God. I need to look at things like worry with fresh eyes and a godly perspective so that I don't let them get the best of me."

When Our Consistency Gets Crushed

When Our Consistency Gets Crushed

As a personal trainer, I see a lot of people who stick to an exercise routine consistently for a period of time and see great results, but then something happens — they go on vacation, family comes into town, they get sick — and they fall off the wagon.

Exercise is pushed to the bottom of the to-do list, which usually means it doesn't happen. The longer they're off their routine, the harder it is to get back to that same level of consistency. Soon, if they aren't careful, they lose a lot of what they gained. Certain exercises that were almost easy before are now very difficult, which can be discouraging.

Nothing to Shrug At

Nothing to Shrug At

We're continuing our June theme for Miracle Monday: anointing miracles. Today, we're sharing a testimony submitted by Sister Brianne Gehly.

The current job the Lord provided for me (see this blog article for the details) is a very physical job for a "short" woman. Although I may be a little on the short side, I consider myself a healthy and strong person, and I rarely get injured. My daily physical skills include cranking an X-ray machine into the back of a Chevy HHR, lifting heavy patients regularly, holding open doors while pushing and pulling heavy equipment, and dodging elderly people in wheelchairs.

Announcing the 2015 Summer Reading Challenge!

It's back again for the third year running — the Summer Reading Challenge.

In 2013, we read the entire Bible in three months. In 2014, we tackled the Book of Mormon. This year, we're doing a 60-day deep dive into the four gospels.

We're starting this Monday, June 8, and we'll wrap up on August 6. We hope the leisurely pace gives you the time to really savor these beautiful scriptures. We've even built in a handful of catch-up days so that you can get back on track if you fall behind.

Blogger's Choice: Simply Stubborn

Written by Sister Natalie Shawver on Wednesday, 03 June 2015. Posted in Devotional Hits 2265

Blogger's Choice: Simply Stubborn

Today we're bringing you the first post in our Blogger's Choice series. We've asked some of our regular writers to select one of their favorite articles from years past and to tell us why it's on their best-loved list.

Today's Blogger's Choice is from Sister Natalie Shawver. She chose "Simply Stubborn," originally published on Nov. 29, 2012.

She says, "This post is one of my favorites because I'm hopeful it helped readers get a glimpse of how our relationship with the Lord should be — unmoving and unwavering — all with a fun twist on the word "stubborn." As they say, "When the root is deep, there is no reason to fear the wind." I'm thankful I serve a God who is still so stubborn over me — that He keeps me close and reminds me daily to stay just as close to Him."

YOLO, So Be Wise

Written by Sister Linda Scolaro on Tuesday, 02 June 2015. Posted in Devotional Hits 2411

YOLO, So Be Wise

On our way home from a recent MBA class, one of my daughters showed us a rock that she painted in class that evening. The words she chose to paint read: "YOLO, so be wise." The lesson in her class was based on the parable of the wise and foolish builder. My husband and I breathed a sigh of relief and said, "Phew, she gets it."

The world interprets this popular saying, "YOLO," as "you only live once." It is the equivalent of "Eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow you may die." On the flip side, YOLO, as my daughter interpreted, is the new WWJD, "what would Jesus do?"

Hey, It Works

Hey, It Works

Today is our first anointing-related Miracle Monday, and Brother Jerry Valenti submitted this testimony about the first time he ever anointed someone. Enjoy!

I was ordained into the ministry on September 7, 1986. The following weekend was our Area MBA Campout, which my wife Pat and I were planning to attend.

However, Pat had her four wisdom teeth extracted that Tuesday (at 9 a.m. — the receptionist said she was waiting all day to assign that appointment on 9/9 at 9!). Unfortunately, her recovery did not go as expected the next few days.
