Each day this week, I am sharing Easter messages. Today’s article is about the Facebook page Jesus the Christ.
If you use Facebook, I encourage you to follow the page Jesus the Christ. The page is a community of disciples of Jesus Christ of all faiths who love and follow Him. The page is sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Here are 3 easy steps to like and follow the page. (The steps correspond to the the red numbers on the image above.)
Once you begin following the page, it’s also important to interact with the posts you see. On Facebook, if you don’t Like, Share, or comment on posts, over time you’ll see fewer and fewer of them. Here’s why:
Because there is so much content on Facebook, they can’t show you every post from every page you have liked. Therefore, they filter the posts and only show you what you interact with the most. So, if you like, comment, or share the posts you enjoy, you’ll see more of that kind of content. If you don’t, you’ll see less and less of it.]]>
Each day this week, I am sharing Easter messages. Today’s article is about a website about Jesus Christ from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The website JesusChrist.lds.org is about the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. It contains 6 sections that answer the following questions:
Using the words of latter-day prophets and apostles as its foundation, the site focuses on the life, teachings, and mission of the Savior and how we can come unto Him and invite others to do the same.
I invite you to share this website with your friends and link to the site from your personal blogs and websites.
Since the site was just updated yesterday, check back regularly to see additional resources that will be added, including more videos, music, and inspirational pictures to share.]]>
Each day this week, I am sharing Easter messages. Today’s article is about the Gospel Topics section of LDS.org provided by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The Gospel Topics section of LDS.org (topics.lds.org) provides a rich experience for personal and family gospel study. I recommend the following key topics for study this weekend to better understand our Savior Jesus Christ:
Each day this week, I am sharing Easter messages. Today’s article is about videos from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The video “To This End Was I Born,” reminds us that Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, and King of the Jews, was born to offer Himself as a sacrifice to atone for the sins of mankind.
In “None Were with Him – An Apostle’s Easter Thoughts on Christ,” Elder Jeffrey R. Holland explains that one of the great consolations of this Easter season is that because Jesus walked such a long, lonely path utterly alone, we do not have to do so.
The video “His Sacred Name – An Easter Declaration” reminds us to remember the sacred name, life, and sacrifice of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

On April 11, I posted an article asking the question How has the Book of Mormon changed your life?
In that article, I invited you to go to the website BestBookRead.com and vote for the one book that has transformed your life forever. On April 11, the Book of Mormon was #25 on the list, with 235 votes.
Today, the Book of Mormon is #1 on the list, with 4,555 votes. We took it from #25 to #1 in 5 days!
This is an example of what Latter-day Saints can do when we stand for what we believe and we share it with others. If you haven’t voted for it yet, just visit BestBookRead.com.
Read the Book of Mormon online or ask for a free copy of the Book of Mormon. It is translated into 109 languages.
See the article “The Book of Mormon claims No. 1 spot on list of life-changing books” in the Deseret News.
Update 4/16/2014 8:07pm: Apparently, someone has hacked the BestBookRead.com site and promoted a book by Hitler to #1. The site is still new, and I assume the site will fix this soon. I recommend that people continue suggesting to their friends to vote for the Book of Mormon.
Each day this week, I am sharing Easter messages. Today’s article is about a great message from Radiant, a new values-based organization owned by Boncom.
Starting Today inspires you to take a closer look at your life and make positive changes.
Christmas is a time of good will toward others. New Year’s inspires resolutions. But how does Easter go beyond the superficial themes of Easter eggs and chocolate bunnies? That question is the focus of the Easter message Starting Today.
The central message is that change can begin at any time because of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, who is the defining event of Easter. Christ’s life and teachings give us the hope to bring about real, positive change in our lives.

The website encourages you to post your personal resolutions on social media with the hashtag #StartingToday so you can inspire your friends and family to take action, too.
