To be grateful is to pause, think and ponder on the goodness of our existence. For people of faith, stopping our busyness to consider our blessings (no matter how small) is more than a nice idea — it’s a transformative process in which our souls are drawn upward in love to God, who then points us outward to lift others. Whether it’s Mormons reaching out to hurricane victims this fall, Southern Baptists rallying to help a Muslim neighbor whose business was robbed and damaged, or Christian congregations teaching kids in the community that "we’re all God’s children, and we all should look out for one another," people of faith around the globe show their gratitude to God by immersing themselves into their local communities. There is much to be grateful--both this Thanksgiving and every day of the year. Click the link in our bio to read more about the global gift of gratitude. #HappyThanksgiving

Elder Dallin H. Oaks and Elder M. Russell Ballard answered a wide variety of questions at an #LDSface2face broadcast Sunday. Questions from Brazil and New York asked how Latter-day Saints can show love to those who disagree with Church teachings on same-sex attraction. “We have to be cautious and willing to listen. We have to be willing to talk to one another about this issue,” Elder Ballard said. He continued by saying those who are gay “are God’s children. He loves them. There’s a place for them [in the Church] and for all of our Father’s children, regardless of what their circumstances may be. The Church is a place of refuge, to come and find peace and answers to life’s questions.” Follow the link in our bio to read more of his and Elder Oaks’s answers to hard questions.
