A simple exercise when it comes to the Book of Mormon is to sit down and ask yourself “Why do I read the Book of Mormon?” The answer should be a testimony born of experience in reading and applying its teachings. A witness can’t be shared if there is no familiarity. In fact, the word testimony or witness relies on having a personal viewpoint of something. Continue reading

It’s not a new statement here. But it is a good reminder of the chain.
Has Jesus Christ’s church been restored to the earth in these days? Are prophets from God speaking God’s word again? Is this miracle even possible? Continue reading

One time while on my mission, my companion and I spent some down time tracting. That’s probably the image most people think of when they think of “Mormons” – the door to door visits by missionaries.

Below is the link to the General Conference talk by Elder Stevenson. Between the link and here I share a few of my personal thoughts on the subject.

Let me tell you about one of my heroes in the Book of Mormon. His name is Pahoran. We know relatively little about him. He was the third Chief Judge for the Nephites after he took his dad’s place. His father Nephihah was made Chief Judge by the prophet Alma after Alma devoted himself solely to the ministry. His sons teach us a lesson about following leadership. One of his sons is indirectly responsible for the birth of the Gadianton Robbers. The same robbers that become the civilization’s doom later on. So, basically relatively little.
