Church Launches

Visit the Church's new, upgraded website at

The media-rich site emphasizes the teachings of living prophets and apostles, provides easy access to scriptures, and offers new tools for online gospel study.

I did some exploring and would like to introduce you to some of the new features.

I know, I know I've featured this on the blog before, BUT now it's even better...the design, the multimedia, the thoughtful choices of articles etc.

Study by Topic

I love this way of studying the scriptures. You get a complete picture of a gospel subject.

For example, let's look at the Temple topic.

First you get a simple definition or introduction, then Additional Information if you want to dive deeper.
"Temples are literally houses of the Lord. They are holy places of worship where individuals make sacred covenants with God....
"Temples are places of learning. Their principal purpose is to provide ordinances necessary for the children of God to enable them to return to dwell with Him."
Then Reference Scriptures...Isaiah 2: 1-3.
"1 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

"3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem."
Next is a list of related recent church magazine articles.

For example, Happiness and Joy in Temple Work, by Franklin D. Richards in 1986.
"A temple is a retreat from the vicissitudes of life, a place of prayer and meditation providing an opportunity to receive inner peace, inspiration, guidance, and, frequently, solutions to the problems that vex our daily lives.

"A temple is a place where the divine spark in man, or the infinite in man, can seek the infinite in God"
And last, Additional Study Materials, such as the Encyclpedia of Mormonisn, the Bible Dictionary and so forth.

Take a minute and check it out. Enrich your scripture study with this resource.
