What LDS Girls Camp is like around the world

When Young Women Camp began, a small group of young women from Salt Lake City went into the mountains near their homes for a weeklong excursion. Since then, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has grown to millions of members from all around the world. Today most church members are not within hiking distance of the Wasatch Front.

For those who end up in the dating phase of life longer than they planned it becomes one of their greatest trials to endure cheerfully. It is extremely easy to blame all of your dating problems on the opposite gender, but that leads

How A Catholic Man Showed And Taught Me Compassion On My Mormon Mission. #PrinceOfPeace

“Chris Brown, the Catholic not the rapper” Four years ago I was a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was serving in the Manchester New Hampshire Mission. I had recently been assigned to work in the greater Ellsworth/Mount Desert Island area in Maine. The work was slow, many people would swear at us rather than talk with us.

The Most Important Reason For Trials That Mormons Almost Always Forget

The Most Important Reason For Trials That Mormons Almost Always Forget Far too often Mormons fall into the same trap as the Pharisees.

One Thing Every Mormon Should Understand Before They Go Less Active!

5 Things You Did Not Know About Hyrum Smith The Patriarch.

Hyrum Smith, the Patriarch. I love Hyrum Smith, I served my mission in Vermont and walked the hills were he was raised. We often extol Joseph Smith, Brigham Young and other early Prophets for their works and mission. But Hyrum is arguably the 2nd most important man of the restoration. Hyrum’s legacy may not be well known, but Joseph counseled us to learn it and follow it. For it is a legacy of selfless service to God. Hyrum’s life is
