Money and the Word of God

Money and the Word of God

Today's article is Part 2 of a five-part series from the General Church Finance Committee on finances and faith.

Giving, donating, contributing, tithing, freewill tithing, offering — it’s kind of funny that we have so many phrases to express something that’s become almost taboo to talk about in church. Although financial giving might not be discussed much in your branch, it is discussed in scripture, and that makes it worth talking about.

Answering the Call

Answering the Call

This week, we have something special in store for you: five articles provided by the General Church Finance Committee on the subject of money and how it intersects with faith. Many of you made New Year's resolutions that have to do with your personal finances or charitable giving, so we hope that this weeklong series of articles encourages and empowers you toward those goals.

Today's article is from Brother Jerry Morle.

No one likes talking about finances, especially when they are tight. And because money can be so corrupting and divisive, talking about it in church seems that much more distasteful. So, in October 2015, when the Presidency asked presiding elders to explain some pressing financial matters with their members, I bristled.

It’s All in the Family

It’s All in the Family

This article is Part 4 of Sister Natalie Shawver's series “Born and Raised”…Or Not.

Gaining approval from our families is one of the most important things we can hope for, isn’t it? We hope they give their blessing for numerous milestones in our lives — our choice of college, our profession, even our mate. And, in some instances, gaining their blessing for our religious belief is among the list — especially for those who didn’t grow up in The Church of Jesus Christ.

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.

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 1478

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.
