Obey the Little Things First

Obey the Little Things First

I was reading Brother Ishmael D'Amico's pamphlet titled "My Testimony," and one interesting incident really stuck out in my mind. I wish to relate it to you, quoting from his pamphlet.

In the beginning of August 1919, a friend of mine gave me a Bible. He said, "I know you like these crazy church people, so here is a Bible to make you crazy too." I must say that I was anxious to read it.

Fall, Run, Stop

Fall, Run, Stop

Today's military-related Miracle Monday is taken from The Church History Vol. 2. Brother Lou Pietrangelo shared the following experience had during World War II. Make sure you check out the special treat at the end of this article!

After being trained on B-29 aircraft, I flew overseas to the Pacific Theater to a U.S. air base on a small island called Tinian, about 1,500 miles off of Japan's main island. One evening while preparing for flight takeoff (one per minute), as we waited in our positions to get on the runway, I decided to write a letter to my mother.

Announcing the 2014 Summer Reading Challenge!

Last year's Summer Reading Challenge was so much fun, we're doing it again, and it starts on May 26, so mark your calendars!

We're taking things down a notch this time. Instead of trying to tackle the entire Bible in three months, we're going to read the whole Book of Mormon! The Book of Mormon is totally doable in 90 days. We've come up with a calendar that you can download and print.

A Blizzard With a Chance of Sunshine

A Blizzard With a Chance of Sunshine

Whether the weather is still brisk and chilly or warm and sunny where you live, we hope you enjoy this testimony by Sister Teri-Lyn Tunno. If you would like to praise God for something He did for you, please send us your story!

I want to share an answered prayer. Even though it may seem small to most, it meant so much to me and is something I will never forget.

One evening about 10 years ago, my younger sister was working late at her second job at the local mall. Since my brother-in-law was out of town, our dad was babysitting my 3-year-old nephew all day. When I got home from my job, I saw the weather report predicting a band of snow coming our way. As it began to fall, everything turned white.

Don't Drive Blindfolded in Alabama

Don't Drive Blindfolded in Alabama

I recently heard about a car accident in which a driver ran a red light because he was texting. He collided with another vehicle and injured the passengers. Whenever we hear about something like this, we generally shake our heads, not only at the recklessness involved but also because it happens to be against the law in most states to text while you're driving.

A Mother's Prayers on the Battlefield

A Mother's Prayers on the Battlefield

Today's military-themed Miracle Monday was submitted by Sister Mary Ann Heaps. There is still time to submit your miracles for this month. Please contact us with your story.

I want to honor the Lord for protecting my late husband Rusty Heaps in battle during his service with the U.S. Navy during WWII.

May is a good month for me to tell this story – May 1 is “May Day” (an international stress signal), May 8 is VE Day, May 16 was Rusty’s birthdate, May 17 is Armed Forces Day and May 30 is the traditional Memorial Day.

Spread the Good Word: Deuteronomy 5:33

Here's a little something to spread the love. Can you say "It is well with me and my soul" today? 

Not a Morning Person

Written by Sister Vicki Ali on Thursday, 08 May 2014. Posted in Devotional Hits 2578

Not a Morning Person

I am not a morning person, but rather one of those people described as "Instant human. Just add coffee." Before my initial java intake level reaches the bottom line shown in this photo, I consider the phrase "Good morning" an oxymoron.

Good news. I do not stay in this negative state long. I perk up, but it is a slow, unwinding process that cannot be rushed for people wired like me. So against my very nature, I get up an hour before I need to get ready for work, as every fiber of my being cries to stay in bed until the last possible second.

The Prayer of a Child

The Prayer of a Child

Today, we're sharing an experience contributed by Sister Enza Traina Pusillo. This reminds us to always take matters to God in prayer first.

This happened when my son Sal was 10 years old. He was sitting at the kitchen table after coming home from school. My back was to him since I was putting away some groceries. He was directly behind me, sitting at the end of the kitchen table between the table and my Formica counter top. As we talked about his day, he told me he was hungry. With my back still to him, I told him to grab a piece of fruit from the bowl on the table and that I would be making dinner shortly.

Four Steps to Forgiveness

Four Steps to Forgiveness

"Mommmm! Tommy cut all my doll's hair off!"

"Tommy! That's not nice! Say you're sorry."

(Giggling and mischievous) "Sorry."

"Mom, he's NOT sorry."

"Tommy, say you're sorry again — and mean it."

Gliding Away from Danger

Gliding Away from Danger

Today's Miracle Monday is an oft-shared experience by Brother Otto Henderson. We're happy to share this with you to kick off our month of military-related miracles. If you haven't sent yours in, there's still time! Click here to share your story.

When I was in the army during World War II, I was stationed overseas in England, and the military needed to transport us over to Holland and Germany. I remember all the men were all gathered in ranks in a big field, and an officer was speaking to us. I remember I was in the third row on the left side, and just a few yards away from were a row of military gliders. The officer told us that pretty soon, we'd all be flying on those gliders.

To Judge or Not to Judge?

Written by Sister Michelle Watson on Thursday, 01 May 2014. Posted in Devotional Hits 3539

To Judge or Not to Judge?

My husband watches as I get another piece of dark chocolate out of the freezer. "Don't judge me," I say with a smile as I nibble on the corner.

Saying "don't judge" is really popular right now in a casual, slangy sort of way, but what does it really mean? What does scripture say about judgment? Most importantly, is judging someone right or wrong?

What do you think?

Miracles from Branch 1

Miracles from Branch 1

Sister Lydia Lombardo submitted these powerful experiences years ago for the Detroit Branch #1 history. They are about her mother, Sister Maria (Gaetana) Molisani. They probably date back to the 1930s, and they are a strong reminder of how the Lord honors faith at any time, under any circumstances. Thanks to Sister Rosanne Champine for sending these in.

I could write volumes on how the Lord worked with our family. A healing that always stood out in my mind while growing up was a miracle my mother experienced:
