Why did Joseph Smith look into a hat to translate the Book of Mormon? What’s with that blood atonement thing? Why did your church not give blacks the priesthood for so long? Why did Joseph Smith have 43 wives? What’s up with that book Mormon Doctrine? Is it really “mormon doctrine”? At one time or another, I’m sure many of us have been asked tough questions by our non-member friends about the Church. And I’m sure many times members don’t have the answers to these questions. As a consequence of the lack of answers, non-members go to the internet to find them on their own, only to find sites that give an anti-Mormon spin to these questions.

All you future missionaries, listen up. While you’re on your mission, you’ll be doing some baptizing. (Duh.)

In order to mitigate the mess, have a pair of mesh garments so you can baptize in them. While I’m not a big fan of the mesh material, I wish I would have known this while I was on my mission. Wet clothes can get heavy, and when you don’t have a car, carrying a big bag of wet clothes can get...Read More
Our leaders have counseled us to have 72 hour kits on hand in case an emergency happens. You can buy these from different companies, but they often cost a pretty penny. Additionally, they don’t seem that great. We’re going to show you how to make your own. Get some big plastic paint buckets. Not only are they great for carrying your provisions, but they can double as a chair if needed. Collect you provisions. We suggest the following: Flashlight First Aid Kit A mess kit for cooking A flare Ponchos Tolietries (deoderant, soap, toothpaste, sunblock, female hygene products, ect.)...Read More
