flowers-cartoon-8The Visiting Teaching message for the month of August gives a brief description of the Mormons view of the role Jesus as Messiah. Elder Jeffery R. Holland and Dieter F. Uchtdorf are both quoted saying that Jesus “is our salvation”, and that “there is no other name given under heaven whereby a man (or woman) can be saved.” Yet both of these men, who are well known leaders of the church will also say that the temple works also play a part in one’s salvation.

flowers-cartoon-8As you may already know, April and October are Conference months for the Mormon Church. For one weekend in each of these months various church leaders, from every organization in the Church give talks to their fellow church members via satellite, the internet, or in person at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City, UT. For the months of November and May the Visiting Teachers in the Church are to scan the General Conferences talks in the Ensign (a Church publication) for one that catches their eye, and use it as their message to the women they visit that month.

(EDIT: I wanted to let our readers know I made a small change in this article. I posted the wrong month for the message. It should have been July and not August.)

Romans 1:16 – For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Hello, soon I’ll be launching my new blog designed especially for the LDS woman. Using various LDS resources from the Visiting Teaching Message to the lessons in Relief Society on Sunday morning I hope to offer insight that will draw the women who read my blog closer to Jesus Christ.

There are many challenges and expectation LDS women face daily whether they’re young or old, married or single. One thing in common with all the internal and external battles they face is perfection. Although I’ve heard many Mormons deny it the sad fact is with membership in the church comes the desire and command to be perfect.

I hope and pray that through my blog I will be able to offer the women who come there some encouragement, and help them replace the negative dialog going in their heads with God’s truth. And know the love of the real Jesus Christ.

The new blog is titled LDS Sister’s Corner, web address is  http://ldssisterscorner.wordpress.com/

In Christ,
