Overcome by the meaning of the words of sealing

Yesterday I quoted from Elder John A Widstoe about the power of temple worship. Here is another good one about the power/meaning of the words of the sealing ordinance: The mere words of sealing may be easily spoken at the alters of the holy temples, but they are so full of meaning that any man […]

The power of temple worship

A great quote by Elder John A Widstoe: Men grow mighty under the results of temple service; women grow strong under it; the community increases in power; until the devil has less influence than he ever had before. The opposition to truth is relatively smaller if the people are engaged actively in the ordinances of […]

The Mormon Channel

First off, I’m sorry for the lack of posts. As I mentioned before, we’ve moved, and I’ve been so busy patching/sanind/priming/painting/laying floor/changing outlets and of course, working at a job and serving in my calling, I just haven’t had a chance to post much.

The July 1970 issue of the magazine had an article by some guy […]

Temple Square ad

Someone at work saw this in a travel trade magazine. He’s commented before that he will occasionally see information promoting Salt Lake City as a destination for conferences. The ad has a nice illustration of temple square. I didn’t say this to my co-worker, but it made me wonder why the Church does this… Is […]
