Gifting Good Cheer

Giving gifts is one of the joys of Christmastime. And, more importantly, it's a type and shadow of God's gift to us — His only Son!

Some people put a lot of thought into the gifts they give others, especially their closest family and friends. But sometimes you just need a quick little goody. Today, we're going to show you how to use our Good Cheer Greetings to create small, last-minute Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers.

You can use these as party favors, thank-you tokens, or calendar fillers.

Good Cheer Greeting Card Keeper

Did you miss the Christmas gift that we gave you last week? Well, today, we're bringing you another way to use your Good Cheer Greetings (those cute Christmas printable graphics) as décor around your home this holiday season.

Chances are you're starting to get some Christmas cards in the mail. Instead of stowing them in a box or haphazardly sticking them to your fridge, why not make your own Christmas card wall display? Today, we show you how.

(Again, the point of our Good Cheer Greetings is to offer a simple, cute way to place messages about God around your home at this wonderful time of year.)

Dare to Share

It's All Hallows' Eve, and we're just one day away from November — the month when we celebrate thankfulness and gratitude.

We at the Gospel Blog think that it's the perfect day to kick off a fun Thanksgiving project. We're calling it Dare to Share.

Here's how it works — very simple!

Kids' Question of the Month – June

Written by Sister Michelle Watson on Wednesday, 13 July 2016. Posted in Special Series Hits 1136

Kids' Question of the Month – June

When you were little, did your parents (or grandma or Uncle Bob) have to drag you to church kicking and screaming, or were you the first one in the car ready to leave on Sunday morning?

Chances are that your answer isn't as simple as these two polar opposites. Maybe you liked attending church when you knew there would be a kids' class or a potluck lunch. Perhaps church was more difficult when you were smaller and constantly squirming in your seat, and it got easier when you finally grew tall enough to see over the pews to get a good view of the goings on.

The Way Home

The Way Home

For those attending GMBA Camp, it's goodbye day. The morning is usually filled with hugs, tears, exchanging of phone numbers and emails, and the frantic packing of luggage. Some campers — particularly the younger set — didn't get a wink of sleep last night, enjoying every last drop of fellowship time.

More than any of that, we believe that many campers are going home armed with important spiritual convictions, insights, and challenges that they plan to live out in their daily lives. This is the true spirit of GMBA Camp. The warm, fuzzy feeling that we have when we're there is great. But it's the takeaway that has lasting impact.

For the nine (as of our last count) souls in particular who requested baptism this week, the takeaway will be no less than life changing.

Kids' Question of the Month – May

Kids' Question of the Month – May

The natural world is one of the clearest, most beautiful ways that we can see and experience God in a somewhat tangible way, don't you think? When we witness a wave curl and crash, or we can't look away from the flicker at the end of a wick, or we're stunned into silence by a peacock crossing our path — this actually happened to me a couple of weeks ago! — the ho-hum brushes up, even just for a moment, against hoo-whee-wow.

Say Cheese, TCOJC!

Say Cheese, TCOJC!

A picture is worth a thousand words, and people across the globe took over 1 trillion photos in 2015, estimates Mylio.com in its online magazine. (If 1 billion people take three photos per day, then that's 1 trillion-plus photos per year.) Four-by-six prints of all those photos laid side by side would reach from the earth to the moon … and back.

And those pictures aren't in private albums like they would've been before the digital age. They're online for all to see because it's effortless to share them. Of course, we see the not-so-great pictures, hastily snapped, thoughtlessly posted. You know the ones I mean. But then there are the wonderful ones … the ones that reflect …

Kids' Question of the Month – April

Kids' Question of the Month – April

This month, we asked our kids a very simple question: How long do you think it would take a grown-up to read all the way through the Bible and Book of Mormon?

We were wondering how different a child's perception of time is from an adult's. Also…how much confidence do they have in us as spiritual speed readers?

Here are some replies from the 6 to 10 year-olds in Columbus, OH who pondered how long it would take their mothers to read both books.
