WELCOME, NEW AND REGULAR VIEWERS
OF THIS BLOG:
In this and in everyadditional post of this blog you will be led on a carefully and prayerfully planned exciting and inspiring journey as you prepare by means of a guided study of the four sacred books of scripture I am shown holding above. Devoted Study of them will assist you in becoming more righteously happy now and more fully prepared for eventualAfter-Mortality Eternal Endeavors on your part, along with your loved ones and countless other mortals who areseeking to qualify as our Heavenly Father's worthy children.
Those enabling Books of Scripture were brought about through the love and wisdom of the Heavenly Father of our Immortal Spirits which now inhabit our mortal bodies; and were a key part of the Restoration of the Gospel, and of the establishment of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints through the Prophet Joseph Smith early in the Nineteenth Century.
Leading out in all of this, was of course,Our Heavenly Father's Only Begotten who is our Lord, Savior, and Redeemer, Jesus Christ(who initially was our eldest spirit brother and is the only one of us our Heavenly Father will have ever sired into mortality).
Jesus accomplished His Infinite Atonement,the Ultimate Mortal Sacrifice, along with His infallibly witnessed Resurrection. He is our Redeemer and Savior who opened the way for each of us to learn with certainty throughthose four books of scripture,and through the inspired teachings of His Prophets,Seers and Revelators of our day and those authorized by them; that some time after our mortal deaths, because of His Atonement and Resurrection, and depending on the level of individual righteousness to which we each attain, through His grace, we can eventually experience Eternal Life in our own Resurrected Bodies, which in the case of those who fully heeded all of His scriptural guidance and the guidance of His authorized living servants, there will be full possession of Godly capabilities!

I retired from LDS Family Services in 1996. I owned my own adoption service business for 8 years thereafter. Then my wife, Melva and I served in Finland 2004 - 2006 as missionaries. I also served as a young missionary in Finland from 1952 - 1955. I have nine children (5 daughters, four sons), two step-children, (step-sons) and 27 grandchildren.
From One Mormon's Point of View
So much is being said nowadays on the Internet by people not of the Mormon faith, about the Mormons and their beliefs. Why not learn about us Mormons from one of us. I'm not an official of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, just one of the regular members, yet I'm one who supports Mormon beliefs because I have a testimony and have had much experience that has shown me the truth. I welcome your questions and even criticisms that you have heard, about which you would like the truth. If that is the case, you've come to the right guy.
