"Bishop Gérald Caussé is named as the new presiding bishop of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Dean M. Davies will serve as first counselor and W. Christopher Waddell as second counselor in the Presiding Bishopric.

The First Presidency made the announcement Friday, October 9, 2015. The new assignments are effectively immediately, but there will also be a transition period."

The museum, which first opened its doors in 1984, reopened to the public on Wednesday, September 30, 2015, following a one-year closure. The extensive interior renovation includes new interactive exhibits."

"Wednesday marks the 20-year anniversary of the release of an important document. In 1995, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints put forth a set of principles that would help strengthen families and communities throughout the world. Those time-tested guidelines came in the form of “The Family: A Proclamation to the World.” Virginia H. Pearce, daughter of late Church President Gordon B. Hinckley, was serving in the Church’s auxiliary leadership at the time. She shares her thoughts on the moment she heard the proclamation and her feelings today."

"Religious freedom is a vitally important topic, and it is attracting more public attention. Elder Rasband said the Church has consistently stood for freedom of choice and conscience. He referred to a statement Joseph Smith made in 1843: “We believe that … all men are created equal, and that all have the privilege of thinking for themselves upon all matters relative to conscience.”"

It's not if, but when our children will be exposed to Internet #pornography. I think this is a fear that most parents have a great concern about because it's nearly impossible to shield children from everything they may come in contact with online -- as much as we do our best to protect them. So I want to share with you this fantastic video on LDS.org so you and your kids are prepared.

Today in my home state, "The California Assembly approved legislation that would allow terminally ill patients to legally end their lives, sending the proposal to the state Senate that is expected to endorse it" as reported by the Associated Press. The idea of assisted suicide just sickens me.

What we learn in the scriptures is that the children of God can have the same experience (hear the same prophetic messages) but by choice choose to receive it differently. We can choose to follow the prophet or debate his words as if they are independent of the Lord's. Heaven knows those called to lead the Church are not perfect, but there’s no question that they have been given priesthood authority to direct the affairs of the kingdom of God on earth. #ldsconf   #Mormon   #lds

I am going to try this with our family on FHE because we can do a better job of being more reverent in Sacrament Meeting. For me personally I need to Visualize and Apply it in my daily experiences.

Great article! I am thrilled to be part of the Church's education history in joining #BYUIPathway   +I-Learn  (BYU-Idaho) this year! 

"President Uchtdorf hailed BYU-Idaho's online learning program and its unique Pathway program, which Gilbert helped create six years ago and which combines online coursework with local group learning at more than 300 sites in 32 countries from Africa to Europe and South America.

BYU-Idaho classes began on Monday, and President Uchtdorf said a fall semester head count including those online and Pathway students surpassed 43,000, more than those at either of its sister BYU schools in Utah and Hawaii.
About 17,500 of those students are on campus. Another 16,000 or so are in the Pathway program, while the rest are online."

A concern that I've had for quite sometime is the hyper-interest in prepping for a doomsday scenario by many good members of the Church. One reason for this heightened activity is due to a number of spurious pieces of literature (books) gaining traction as highly credible. What's most disturbing is that these books, and their authors, are often treated as more enlightened than the inspired council of Prophets and Apostles on the topics of emergency preparedness and the Second Coming.
