    What's In a Name?

    I am Mormon and have been raised in the church. As i get older, I am building my testimony of the gospel and its presence in my life is a constant comfort and guidance that I am eternally grateful for. The only thing is that I absolutely hate the term 'Mormon'. I feel like it is...

    Post-mission

    Hey guys, I just got back from serving my mission in Chile. It was one of the greatest experiences ever in my life! I saw the Hand of God so much during that time. Well now I'm just chilling at home wondering if anyone would like to chat. I have a lot of freetime at the moment.

    Grumpy Mormon

    I was raised in the Church and have a firm personal conviction of the Restoration of the Gospel.  I served a mission and love watching General Coference.  But I feel like I'm an inactive waiting to happen.  For pretty much the last fifteen years I've felt like an...

    I guess you can say that I'm "devout"

    or a "TBM (True-Believing-Mormon." But I allow myself to be skeptical and to question things because that's what the doctrine has taught me to be and to do.

    Inactive But Still Strong.

    I was born and raised in the church. I did enjoy going to church every Sunday and going to mutual, and I even enjoyed going to girls camp, even though I am super shy and quiet. It was just recently that things got pretty bad. Me, not the church. In October of 2011, I got...

    This is the one thing I have been able to count

    on when everything is gone. God. His thoughts in mine, his light, and his words. I wouldn't be alive without this gospel. I don't want to know where I'd be without its teachings. I have a purpose to grow and to learn. I cannot lose myself like my father did. I understand, but...

    A Second Endowment Does Not Seal Eternal Life

    I personally believe that a person's calling and election is NOT made sure through a second endowment. I believe this because we are saved by grace, and not works, lest any man should boast because of works. Thus, Prophets cannot seal this great blessing through temple work. This...

    Counsel For Young Missionaries And Youth Of The Church

    Inspiration: 1 Corinthians 7 and earnest prayer to know the truth behind these things. If a young man wants to best prepare for a mission, then he must have no girlfriends. Having a girlfriend is the same as pairing up no matter what you might rationalize. Therefore, have only...

    1 Corinthians 7, An Answer To My Distressed Prayers

    I don't and never will give any money to church, I don't pray, I don't believe in any miracles or gods, and I eat whatever I please, but the idea of marrying more than one woman resonates with my beliefs, therefore I chose to be a mormon, although, as I mentioned above, I'm not...
