Praying for…Trouble? – By Contributor Mama Kathrine

Praying for…Trouble? – By Contributor Mama Kathrine

When you pray, you don’t normally expect to get a bad head cold. It’s not usually the way to detect answers from our Heavenly Father. But maybe sometimes it is? I’ve been thinking a lot about the new Disney movie, “Moana,” especially since we’ve watched […]

Become as  Child: The Magnifying Power of Christ – By Contributor Mama Emily Perkes

Become as Child: The Magnifying Power of Christ – By Contributor Mama Emily Perkes

Through my recent research I have had this idea of “magnifying our efforts through Christ” on my mind. I was taught this principle again in the most unlikely circumstances: It was a really, really hard morning. My patience was gone before I woke up and […]

Mary and Martha – By Contributor Mama Emily Perkes

Mary and Martha – By Contributor Mama Emily Perkes

I have been reading about Martha and Mary  and was surprised by the line that struck me with power during this morning’s study. Each part of Martha’s plea was expounded in my mind to teach me what I needed to hear: “Lord, dost thou not […]

Revelation like a Sunrise – By Contributor Ashley Marchant

“Do you recall the slow and almost imperceptible increase in light on the horizon… gradually and steadily the intensity of the light increased, and the darkness of night was replaced by the radiance of morning. Eventually, the sun did dawn over the skyline. But the […]

Our Divine Identity, Part 2: Reason and Record – By Contributor Mama Wendy

“Reason and record what you learn about the Divine Identity you are seeking, as well as that which is lost through this effort and defining synonyms.” Identity includes what makes you unique and different from anyone else. Identity is like your fingerprint and like a […]

Our Divine Identity, Part 1: Lost again: the search for unchanging identity – By Contributor Mama Wendy

So once again I lost myself. Not in the good way, the scriptural way, “those who lose themselves for my sake” way. This was in the “Who am I?” and “What am I doing here?” way. I still knew my name (sometimes) and the routines […]

Vienna Jacques – “A Savior of Life!” – By Mama Karmel

Vienna Jacques – “A Savior of Life!” – By Mama Karmel

I have always thought that Emma Smith was the only woman mentioned, by name, in the Doctrine and Covenants. I was excited to learn that there are two!  Vienna Jacques is the second and is mentioned in D&C 90.  I enjoyed reading her life history […]

The Big and Small of It – By Contributor Mama Jennifer

The Big and Small of It – By Contributor Mama Jennifer

I am not the best at being perfectly consistent about writing. I often do not know what to write and so it is easy to put it off to the end of my study hour and then it’s too easy to just continue reading until […]

The Gift of Writing – By Contributor Mama Vanessa

The Gift of Writing – By Contributor Mama Vanessa

I’ve spent a lot of time recently thinking about my thoughts. What do I think about when I’m not thinking? Seems ironic, doesn’t it? But we’re always thinking something; we’re just not always aware of our thoughts. But if our thoughts form our character, it […]
