When my beautiful gay son told me he was on his way home from a meeting with LDS higher ups – stake president, area rep, other priesthood leaders, and he wanted to tell me about it, I felt a tug on my heart. Ah, he had been home. They had invited him and others to...

  Over twenty years ago, I attended church in the DC Metro area. There was an older woman who didn’t quite fit in with the young professionals. It was the 80s, and “yuppies” were the largest demographic of that ward. She also didn’t resemble the established older couples either.  Most mature people who attended regularly...

How do you define the word home? It’s deceptively tricky, because we each originate from different types of homes, and we each live with personal challenges as varied and diverse as the population of the world. “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way,” wrote Leo Tolstoy in Anna...

As a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in my college years in New England, I learned the craft of creating apple dolls just like the kind sold in the gift shop at Sturbridge Village, the marvelous historical living museum an hour away. Later on I learned how to make everything...

We’re officially in what we call “the dog days of summer” dear reader. It’s early July, and finally hot with a familiar rhythm, requiring both patience and excitement. Now I realize that I wrote on this topic (summer) not too long ago, but what can I say, it’s on my mind, and well, tis the...

“I think you’re a charming expat,” responded my friend in a text to me. I don’t recall what specifically the communication was about, and her message was intended in a loving, friendly way. But it bothered me. She was the daughter of an immigrant—her parents met when they served in the same Caribbean area mission....

I stared at the pair of dark argyle socks being held up at the pulpit. The speaker had just displayed the socks as an example of obedience. A missionary recently turned the offenders into him at the MTC as proof that he was now going to be obedient and only wear plain grey, brown, or...

The Legend of Hermana Plunge by Angela Liscom Clayton is a memoir about the author’s mission to the Canary Islands thirty years ago. The title comes from a nickname she gave herself in response to a district meeting challenge to set outlandish goals for baptisms. At first it just seemed like a flippant nickname, but...

BYU Studies has published four print books so far as part of their New Testament Commentary series. This series draws on an array of academic tools from fields such as archaeology, biblical studies, linguistics, and literary theory. Nevertheless, the interpretations stay anchored in LDS doctrine. Derek Gurr from BYU Studies explains the relationship between the...

Why does everyone talk about road trips with such nostalgia and happiness? I’m in the middle of one right now and it’s mostly full of fighting and complaining punctuated by stops to look at sites called “Buffalo Bill’s Third Favorite House”, “World’s Only Known Naturally Occurring Coffee Hot Springs” and “Largest Pancake Stack on Earth”....
