About This Website
My name is Marc, I live in California, and I've been a Mormon for over 25 years. Even though I know a lot about the Mormon religion, I still consider myself a beginner student of Jesus Christ and his teachings. On this website I write about any spiritual or Mormon church-related topic that catches my interest. Latest Quote
Celebrating Our Differences
"Obviously the Lord has created us with different personalities, as well as differing degrees of energy, interest, health, talent, and opportunity. So long as we are committed to righteousness and living a life of faithful devotion, we should celebrate these divine differences, knowing they are a gift from God. We must not feel so frightened, so threatened and insecure; we must not need to find exact replicas of ourselves in order to feel validated as women of worth. There are many things over which we can be divided, but one thing is needful for our unity—the empathy and compassion of the living Son of God."
--Patricia T. Holland, "One Thing Needful," October 1987

Alma 1:29: And now, because of the steadiness of the church they began
to be exceedingly rich, having abundance of all things whatsoever
they stood in need--an abundance of flocks and herds, and
fatlings of every kind, and also abundance of grain, and of gold,
and of silver, and of precious things, and abundance of silk and
fine-twined linen, and all manner of good homely cloth.
