  • Standart “The fairy tale of the BG Knitted Shoes” – These three missionaries brought back more than just an appreciation for Bulgaria when they returned home. ” I miss Bulgaria  a lot.

  • Lois M. Collins “New research supports Mormon dating guidelines– Here’s another example of ways the gospel blesses lives. “There is a healthy progression to dating, and those who start to form romantic one-on-one dating relationships young are more likely to have problematic behaviors at school and in other areas of their lives, according to researchers from York University in Toronto”
  • Lauren “Sister Tiffany Nelson: From Smelling Smoke to Smelling Fruit! This young missionary faced a debilitating allergy for her area of service, but with prayer she got miraculous results. “I knew before I came out on my mission that I was allergic to smoke, not a good way to start a mission! When we walked into a particular investigator’s home, it was like walking into a brick wall.”
  • Donald E. Anderson “President Anderson’s Letter”– One woman prayed to know what she should do next with her life. God answered.
