The history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—casually dubbed Mormonism—is a modern epic. As a website, we desire to share that story with the world by sharing engaging, factual, and succinct accounts of the faith, dedication, and sacrifice of church members. We seek to be an honest resource where one can find biographies of past presidents and other influential members of the Church, personal accounts of church members, sourced articles regarding historical events, and online books on church history.

Sincere questions and comments are always encouraged, as is guest content.
