‘Men of Character’
A couple of days ago (June 20, 2015), I saw an article in the Deseret News that caught my attention. They were profiling a new book recently published by the Church entitled ‘Men of Character’. You can get more info about it at their publisher’s website @ covenant-lds.com. The book gives short bios on 100 Mormon […]
Is Mormon Culture Becoming More Mainstream?
As I look at the different videos on YouTube by members of the Mormon Church, I find myself wondering how far are they willing to go be seen as “one of the guys (or gals)”? I’ve seen link after link of different parodies of songs members of the Church have made to promote something about […]

Prevention Magazine attributes the high ranking to the Church’s health code; aka the Word of Wisdom, among other factors. I find it interesting this report came so quickly on the heels of a report late […]
Are They Watching You?
Today as I was surfing the net I popped over to the Mormon Church’s web site, lds.org. It’s undergone some major changes since the last time I visited. On the site now members and non-members can sign up for an account that will allow them certain privileges on the site. Non-church members of course have […]
Mormon Lifestyles and Women in Mormonism
The Mormon people have many unique characteristics that not only separate them from Christianity, but in many ways isolate them as well from society at large. To help the “outsider” understand them a little better we’ve listed many of their views about God, holidays observed, clothing, women, roles of men, and the ascribed behavior they […]
