When Eugene L. Roberts, a former BYU athletic coach, popped into a sermon at the Provo Tabernacle one day in his youth, it was to kill time with his friends. But he came away changed. Listen to President Hinckley tell the tale.

In June 1989, the government of Ghana banned LDS Church meetings. During this time, Church members observed the Sabbath by holding sacrament services in their homes. Learn how the Ghanaian Saints endured the “freeze” on our website: http://oak.ctx.ly/r/48vot

Keeping the Sabbath day holy has long been a priority for Church leaders. Take a look at this 1959 statement regarding Sabbath day observance from David O. McKay, J. Reuben Clark, and Henry D. Moyle: http://oak.ctx.ly/r/480y9

Thirty-five years ago yesterday, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir participated in inaugural festivities for U.S. president Ronald Reagan. Two months later, on March 19, 1981, President Reagan sent this letter to Church headquarters, thanking the choir for the beautiful music. http://oak.ctx.ly/r/47o05

Howard W. Hunter was first awakened to the gospel in a young adult Sunday School class. When did your testimony begin to bloom into understanding?

The first baptistry in Utah County was built in 1875. The font was five by nine feet, made of wood and painted sky blue. Take a look at the excavated site, unearthed in November 2012.

President Howard W. Hunter joined the Church at age 12, after his father gave permission. Young Howard had been longing for belonging and responsibility. He thrilled to pump the organ bellows, warm the cold chapel, and pass the sacrament as a newly baptized deacon.

You may be familiar with how the Tabernacle looks—but not surrounded by late 19th-century dirt roads and shops. The historic building was completed nearly 150 years ago!

The Salt Lake Endowment House, which once stood on the northwest corner of Temple Square, was torn down in 1889, four years before the completion of the Salt Lake Temple. It served as a temporary temple for over 30 years.
