It really is a relief to know that the Church is present on nearly every social-networking site. Pages such as this are kind of like an online refuge where we can find peace during our surfing of the crazy Internet. It's sad, really, how everything seems to be falling apart now. Personally, I always thought that I'd live the majority of my life in peace. Perhaps that's just my child mentality speaking. It's like all my cousins used to say, "Being older isn't all it's cracked up to be."

I'm really glad I found this community. :)

This is related to church in that it was a quorum activity. I went scuba diving for the first time in my life this past Saturday, and it was fantastic!

Babtized! :-D [31 Oct 2005|08:39am]

[ mood | excited ]

My son is getting baptized next Sunday, and my husband is going to do it. This will be the first time my husband has ever baptized any one. I’m so excited for both of them. :-D

Our president interviewed my son yesterday, and explained everything that was going to happen. He also gave him a Book of Mormon stories book. He can’t read very well, and with his learning disability, this was perfect for him. (instead of a regular book of Mormon.)

I’m already digging in to my recipes, and trying to figure out what I’m going to fix for the party afterwards. I’m so excited!

[ mood | cheerful ]


I’m new here. I thought I should introduce my self. I’m a 32 year old mother of three. 10, 8, and 3.
I’ve been a member of the church for 9 years now. When I saw your sight I liked it immediately and wanted to join. I look forward to getting to know every one. As of right now my live journal is public, this may change if any problems arise in the future. In the mean time feel free to take a look if you would like to know more about me.

I just went home teaching with my dad before I wrote this, and I encountered in the August 2005 issue of the New Era the article regarding video games. When I was giving my half of the lesson, I realized, and admitted that I played some partially violent video games and came to the realization that I had the similar effects to the boy who wrote the article had. I'm realizing now that I've gotten where I don't game for days, occasionally weeks. Today I got home from Scout camp and noticed that I hadn't suffered from as much withdrawal as I anticipated. LOL

Well, I guess I should introduce myself. I prefer to keep my real name anonymous, so call me Zangarath; phonetic pronounciation is /zaynGAruth/. I am a Teacher in the Aaronic Priesthood and live in the St. Louis North Stake in the United States. I'm 15 1/2 years old.

Counting my blessings [30 Jun 2005|03:48pm]

I feel like I should do this now.

We were married in the temple, and we pay our tithing. We try to live the principals taught in the Bible and Book of Mormon, as well as follow our modern prophets' counsel. We're not perfect, far from it, but we try.

Even though we just got married less than a year ago, we have been able to pay off our car and buy a house. BUY A HOUSE!
We have EXTRA money in the bank. Not lots, but something to fall back on if we need to.
Tim has a great job. I don't have to have one!
We have consistently been healthy enough to not need a doctor since we've been married.
Our dogs are healthy, getting healthier every day.
We have been safe since our wedding day. Even when we lived in bad neighborhoods, we were never threatened, never robbed, never had reason to fear. Even the "thugs" in the neighborhood liked us and were kind to us.
We have food and to spare. Every time we invite friends over for food, they like it, and even though they usually eat a good portion of it, we don't even come close to going hungry for it.
We have paid off our credit cards - twice! - since our wedding.
We have family that loves us and watches out for us.
We have the Spirit in our home. We feel this every day, and it is the best part of every day.
It's hot, but we have two air conditioners in our house...and I may be a little uncomfortable every now and then, but it's nothing compared to the plight of those who can't afford the electricity that air conditioners need.
We have learned how to make food, money, clothing, and time stretch in ways we didn't think possible....because we've had to.
Even though we thought it a great curse that we didn't conceive when we wanted to (a few months ago), it's worked out. Because we don't have the added expense pregnancy brings, we've been able to pay off a lot more debt...and our net worth is now positive instead of negative!

We are so grateful for the gospel in our life. We KNOW that without it, hardly any, if any at all, of these blessings would be ours. We know that God lives, that Jesus is the Christ, and that Gordon B. Hinckley is a prophet of God. We know the Book of Mormon is true, and we love to read it. We don't know what the Lord has in store for us next, but we're excited for it!

If I could ask a huge favor.....

Please pray for me and my boyfriend. Without disclosing too much information, we're trying to turn our lives around so that we can get married in the temple and we need all the support and prayers we can get. Your support is TRULY TRULY appreciated.

Thank you

Rachael & Jeremy

[ mood | confused ]

I had this dream ... I want to know what it means ...

I was standing in a wide open field with many people staring at a cross that was standing up fron the ground.  Suddenly, the cross caught on fire, and the fire was shaped like a man.  It started raining, raining out the fire, so all that was left was the shape of a human burned into the cross.  Then suddenly from nowhere, a man appears from the burn marks, hanging from the cross, however, he's floating in air, on the cross, nothing is holding him to it but he looks to be in pain.  He has the crucifiction scars ... and I know it's Jesus Christ.  Just as he was about to lift his head, I awoke to my dog Casey barking ... what could this dream mean?

How much do we really Trust God? [23 Jun 2005|02:13pm]

"God watches the times and seasons. He knows your individual bearing capacities. . . . You can have full faith and trust in God, His mercy and goodness."

Neal A. Maxwell ( "These Are Your Days," Ensign, Oct. 2004, 29)

We believe in the Lord - but do we always TRUST him? Do we trust that He knows how much we can handle, or that he knows what we are going through? Do we trust him enough to turn to him when we are troubled and not lean on our own understanding? If not - WHY NOT? Perhaps we need to examine our faith a little more and learn why it is that we haven't reached out to him in complete trust. He is a perfect being and perfectly capable of sustaining us through this life and beyond it.

Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own dunderstanding.

Teaching The Children [22 Jun 2005|12:34am]

"If you were going to teach your children three great truths that you would want them to remember, what would they be? Helaman asked his sons Lehi and Nephi to remember three great truths 'that ye may do these things to lay up for yourselves a treasure in heaven, . . . that ye may have that precious gift of eternal life' (Helaman 5:8). My . . . invitation to you is to find out what Helaman asked his sons to remember and then to teach those things to your children. I'll help you this much. Read and ponder Helaman, chapter 5."

(H. Bryan Richards, "Remember the Teachings of Your Father," Ensign, Nov. 2004, 96)

For those of you who have children - what do you teach them? What do you want to teach them? It is amazing that there is even parental guidance found in the book of mormon.

For those of you who may not yet have children - What do you want to teach them when you do have them? What would you teach your primary class if you were the teacher? What examples would you set?

Community News and a Quote [14 Jun 2005|12:05am]

I have received a few comments recently about people who are interested in joining who have been upset by other LDS communities about recent rules about cross-posts. I thought I would answer this publically so that it's clear, and in the next day or so I will update the rules to match.

This community DOES allow cross-posting. There is no restriction against it here at all. Please feel free to cross post whatever you would like to share.

This community IS predominantly LDS, but yes you CAN join if you are not LDS, all that is asked is that you recognize and respect others here.

I hope this answers some of the recent questions.


"There has come to you as your birthright something beautiful and sacred and divine. Never forget that. Your Eternal Father is the great Master of the universe. He rules over all, but He also will listen to your prayers . . . and hear you as you speak with Him. He will answer your prayers. He will not leave you alone."

Gordon B. Hinckley ( "Stay on the High Road," Ensign, May 2004, 112)

I thought this quote was particularly comforting. =}

Hello! [09 Jun 2005|03:27pm]

[ mood | sniffly ]

Hi! I'm new here. I was told about this community by luminescentsoul, and I checked it out, and I love it. I've been looking for ways to make every day more spiritual, and I think this will help.
I am a stay-at-home wife with three dogs...no kids, yet. Sometimes I'm busy all day getting things done, sometimes I just nap and play on LJ all day. My husband and I were married 10 months ago in the Dallas, Texas Temple, and we are still very happy with our covenants and with this church. Anytime missionaries from other churches knock on our door, we have fun trying to convert them! It hasn't worked yet, but we won't give up :)
Anyway, HELLO to everyone!

"It is not enough to know that God lives, that Jesus Christ is our Savior, and that the gospel is true. We must take the high road by acting upon that

( Elder Dallin H. Oaks, "Be Not Deceived," Ensign, November 2004, 46)

Our actions, our words, and how we handle each and every interaction govern how we are perceived, and therefore how the LDS church is perceived by members and non-members alike. When we take up ourselves His name at baptism, we are taking upon ourselves the name of Jesus Christ. Carrying this name we have the opportunity to bring it credit, and honor or we can choose to bring it dishonor. You never know who is watching you, and therefore watching what YOU do with Christ's name. What will YOU choose to add to that perception?
