Family history experts are making learning about our ancestors more fun for families, especially youth. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints opened its first Family Discovery Center on Temple Square.

Guest Post by Michael Terence Worley: "Recently a number of people have claimed The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is struggling.  A common recitation of the claim is that once members learn about certain facts about the faith, gain “thinking skills,” or learn about the Church’s positions on social-political issues they will leave.”

Are the more learned among Mormons leaving the Church as some claim? By and large, not so.

In a recent post by Kate Kelly, (excommunicated by the LDS Church for blatant apostasy) she feebly attempts to defend John Dehlin (who stands to also be excommunicated) by trying to offend faithful Mormons for keeping temple covenants, suggesting that the Church is losing control of its membership.

I’m not sure what Kelly hopes to gain by trying to insult the general membership of the Church, but I can assure you that most members will see it as just sad.

I don't remember where the quote came from or exactly who said it but the gist was that any religion that does not require sacrifice of it's members isn't worthy  of its membership.  Sacrifice is the groundwork for building strong faith.  Many people fail to see the necessity to align their spirit with the doctrines of the Church.  Instead, the path of least resistance is to criticize the Church because one is too weak to make those beneficial changes leading unto salvation.

In an unprecedented move today, +The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced via #socialmedia  a special News Conference only two hours before airing. The topic of concern: #religiousfreedom   and #nondiscrimination. They also requested the hashtag #Fairness4All be used in our communications about the conference. #LGBTrights  

#ShareGoodness  
LDS leaders say that both sides of the debate over religious freedom and nondiscrimination should treat each other with respect.

"It is hard to count the ways religion benefits society. Intangibles are what faith does best. Churches invigorate communities through local associations of support. Differences in religious worldviews enrich our common existence. Voices of moral conscience hold us to our highest ideals. And the dignity of our relationships toward one another is bolstered by human rights and religious freedom.

Behind this lies the unique responsibility of the believer. People of faith contribute to society because of their obligation to God and conscience, not out of privilege, superiority or reward."

My latest post. By now, you’ve probably heard about the upcoming TLC special ‘My Husband’s Not Gay’ that will feature male Mormons who experience same-sex attraction but choose to marry women – and are happy!

I congratulate you on being consistent. So many people say they oppose homosexuality, but if asked if they would want their daughter to marry a man who feels he has been cured of being gay, they are shocked and say, "Oh, no! Of course not!"

As far as the Frozen movie, clearly, imaginary stories are popular because they are allegories for struggles real people have. When I hear about a plot line about a girl who has to hide away her talents, I think about being taunted by boys for being good at math and science. It would never have occurred to me to see it as being about homosexuality, because I don't have that type of personal experience with having to hide it that gay people do.

"The beautiful message and gift of the Savior doesn’t have to be enjoyed, treasured, and remembered only once a year at Christmas. It can become a permanent fixture in our souls. It is something of great worth and substance that can permeate our very being.  In a world that considers the transitory, the disposable, and the brief good enough, Christ is the very best gift that has ever been given in the entire history of mankind.  The gifts He gives to us are everlasting and eternal. It is in remembering, receiving, and giving those gifts of the Savior that lives are transformed."
~ +Susan Porter

"Holding a disciplinary council for a member of the Church is not something that any local leader takes lightly. Such councils are always held in private, and the member is always invited to be a part of that discussion. The decision as to whether to hold a disciplinary council, when and for what reasons rests with the local leader who knows the individual best. Local leaders operate under general principles and guidelines of the Church."

"In an effort to make “Meet the Mormons” more accessible to people around the world, the film will be distributed Tuesday, February 3 to TV channels and digital providers. Theaters in all visitors’ centers and historic sites of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints began showing the film in January. The documentary-style movie, designed to dispel common misconceptions people have about Mormons, made its national debut in more than 400 theaters across the United States in October."

"With another high profile disciplinary meeting, and possible excommunication on the horizon this week, there are some things that we as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints need to remember. This is applicable to those who consider themselves “mainstream” or “conservative” and those that consider themselves, “liberal,” “progressive,” “uncorrelated,” and so on."
