The Church of Jesus Christ is rooted in the truth of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s vision for mankind as communicated through scripture. It represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a gateway through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.
It's September. That means summer's basically over, school's back in, and it's football season.
I've been a huge football fan since I was a kid. Saturdays were spent watching or listening to the Penn State game, and after church on Sunday we'd watch the Steelers.
I was born in 1977, so I'd never seen the Steelers in the Super Bowl, at least that I could remember. Then came the 1995 season, and the Steelers were headed for Super Bowl XXX. At that time, I'd been a member of The Church for two and a half years, and I was the local MBA president.
For today's school-themed Miracle Monday, we're taking you back to the 90s with an experience published in the August 1992 issue of the Gospel News as told by Sister Terri Olfulson.
On March 23, 1991, my family moved from Anaheim, California to Phoenix, Arizona. My two older children had no problem adjusting to their new schools. My youngest son, Billy, age 7, was a different story.
He would come home from school with notes from the teacher saying that he didn't have recess because he had to sit on the benches and do his school work. Every night, he would bring home stacks of papers that he couldn't complete in class.
