Holy Ghost

Faith is something everyone strives to have. Even non-religious people. Some have faith that the Lakers are going to crush everyone this season. Children have faith that Santa won't forget to give them presents this Christmas. Prayer is the way to gain faith in the religious aspect. Prayer is our telephone to Heavenly Father in a sense. We are able to communicate with Heavenly Father all of our worries and joys. My faith grows every time I pray. I have faith that Heavenly Father hears my prayers and will deliver when I need his help and blessings. There have been times in my life when I will not pray for a while. I feel like I'm at at stand still point during those times. As... Read more →


There are many times in life that we wonder "why is this happening to me?" When we have struggles and hardships, we are often not able to see the overall picture. People tend to wallow in self-pity and blame Heavenly Father for everything they are going through. God really wants us to gain knowledge from these times. I have an experience where I was able to help someone because of my trials. My health has not been very good and it kept dragging out for months. There were times I wondered why Heavenly Father was not letting me know what was wrong and was letting it go on. My mother would go into my doctors appointments with me and they would ask her if she... Read more →


The sacrament is a wonderful thing we are able to partake of every week. When we don't partake of it, we often feel incomplete. However, why is sacrament important? I can assure you that even I went some time not understanding the importance of the sacrament. When you're raised in the church, it's just something we do every week. "Today the sacrament is an ordinance in which Church members partake of bread and water in remembrance of Jesus Christ's atoning sacrifice. This ordinance is an essential part of worship and spiritual development. Through this ordinance, Church members renew the covenants they made with God when they were baptized." 1 It's an opportunity for our sins to be washed away, just like they were when we...

Being Mormon can be very difficult and trying at times. I know, in relationships, I have a difficult time. It seems like every guy I've been interested in says it won't work out because of my religion. Why is it so difficult at times? Sometimes we may feel lonely and out of place and wonder why. The right thing can be very hard at times. However, we must stand firm and know that we are doing what we need to and that we are never alone. Even outside our religion, leaders sometimes stand alone. Look at presidents, for example. They sometimes have to make the executive decision to take action which, in turn, may cause an uproar among Americans. Not everyone is going to stand... Read more →


These are words we always hear. Come unto Christ. What does coming unto Christ mean? I know that for me, it hasn't been an easy thing. Throughout my youth, I always went to church and had a desire to serve a mission. I recognized then and even more so now that I was just going through the motions that I had learned growing up. I didn't have a true testimony, I was living off of those around me. Coming unto Christ is done in many ways. The atonement is the main one. The atonement can be used in every aspect of our lives. I have made a few mistakes in my life and have had to learn to rely on the atonement. Without it, I... Read more →


" We can, if we live worthy of it, have the blessing of the Spirit to be with us, not only now and then but always. The companionship of the Holy Ghost makes what is good more attractive and temptation less compelling. That alone should be enough to make us determined to qualify for the Spirit to be with us always. Just as the Holy Ghost strengthens us against evil, He also gives us the power to discern truth from falsehood. The truth that matters most is verified only by revelation from God. Our human reason and the use of our physical senses will not be enough. We live in a time when even the wisest will be hard-pressed to distinguish truth from clever deception.... Read more →
