And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.
And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. (more…)
Alan has a fascinating background, and a powerful story of faith. Having lost two of his brothers in an accident, he posed the inherent life questions–Why am I here? What happens after we die? Will I see my brothers (or loved ones) again?

On a never-to–be-forgotten day–7th December 1958, in Manchester, England–I was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (sometimes inadvertently referred to by the media as “The Mormon Church”). My parents and my sister, Susan, 15 years of age, likewise entered the waters of baptism that same day. My younger sister Jane, aged 3 at the time, was eventually baptized after attaining what the Lord has revealed to be “the age of accountability”–8 years old.
From our initial exposure to the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and to the Church organization, my family was enthusiastic and committed; the first few years of membership were especially exciting as we witnessed rapid growth, attended Latter-day Saint (Mormon) conferences and instructional meetings, assisted in the construction of chapels, and witnessed the creation of the first stake (geographical group of Saints) in Manchester, England in 1961 by Harold B Lee, then a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

It seems that one of the greatest challenges that Mormons (members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) face today is public opinion surrounding the historical but long-discontinued practice of polygamy. Those who oppose the LDS Church use this topic as often as they can to try and paint the church and its members as anything but good people. The reality is, when there is a genuine interest to understand and learn about the history of polygamy, a better assessment can be made about Mormons and what they believe. The Deseret News has finished up their five part series on the recent Pew Research Center Forum on Religion & Public Life, ‘Mormons in Ameria’ survey results, which were recently released. In this their final article, “Mormons say Polygamy Morally Wrong, Pew Poll Shows,” not only is polygamy addressed, so are some other very sensitive and important topics.
If there is one thing that many can agree on it is that Mormons seem to be clean-cut, innocent people with very high moral standards. We saw this most recently on the past season of NBC’s “The Sing Off” when the BYU acapella group Vocal Point displayed their amazing talent for the world to see. During the comments from the judges, there was often reference to “clean-cut”, “pure”, “innocent” and “warming.” So there seems to be one fairly strong opinion about Mormons. However, there are also other opinions that may not cast the LDS faith in the best light. When discussions about polygamy, morality and homosexuality are brought to the forefront, it seems that negativity and misperceptions abound. (more…)
