and other stuff dealing with Mormon Apologetics
Logan Utah LDS Temple
And after they had been received unto baptism, and were wrought upon and acleansed by the power of the Holy Ghost, they were numbered among the people of the bchurch of Christ; and their cnames were taken, that they might be remembered and nourished by the good word of God, to keep them in the right way, to keep them continually dwatchful unto prayer, erelying alone upon the merits of Christ, who was the author and the finisher of their faith.-- Moroni 6:4
This will be a place for me to (at a very basic level) post my thoughts and apologetic information, links to others, and stories from others about their conversion to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My hope is to reach some of those who have been affected by anti-mormon material and to stregnthen the faith of others. I will try to categorize and link as things come in.
