12th Day Christmas Past Winner & Answer

Posted by on Dec 24, 2016 in Christmas Past 2016 | 0 comments

Answer 12th Day Christmas Past : Each of us can re-create that familiar scene in Bethlehem in our own lives by works of righteousness, we can come unto Him each day of our lives just as if we had trod in our sandaled feet the rocky path to Bethlehem, holding a staff or bearing gifts:  The scriptures can light our way, and our testimonies can be a light from within like a star to follow just as the Wise Men. The voices of angels can be the voices of our beloved prophet and His servants. We can kneel at the feet of our Savior just as literally as the shepherds and the Wise Men, but we do it in prayer. The gifts we bring are our talents. We can shout “Hosanna” like that angelic choir and spread the good news by bearing our testimonies and sharing gospel.  Congrats to 12th Day drawing winner,  Elizabeth Saderup, who won a Nauvoo Temple tapestry bell pull and an hand carved olive wood bell with Holy Family nativity from Israel! Please contact MHA office 801-272-5601 or info@mormonheritage.com within 30 days to arrange for how to receive your prize. Thank you everyone for your insights on both FB and our blog.

12th Day Christmas Past Question and Story

Posted by on Dec 23, 2016 in Christmas Past 2016 | 9 comments

On the 12th and final Day of Christmas Past, the question is to be – Question: How can each of us as Latter-day Saints re-create that familiar Christmas scene in Bethlehem in our own lives? To be entered into today’s daily giveaway & FREE tour drawing- Read the story; “Comment” & “Share” your answer on Facebook or our blog. “By Way of Invitation” (Alma 5:62) By Betty Jo N. Jepsen (past General Primary Counselor) A friend of mine was encouraging her children to get into the car so they would not be late for their Sunday meetings. “Please hurry, Matthew,” she said. “I’m coming, I’m coming,” came a voice from somewhere in another part of the house. Mother replied, “Yes, and so is Christmas!” At that moment three-year-old Matthew appeared in the nearby doorway, and he said, “Oh, goody, goody, I just love Christmas.” Today I am here to tell you that I just love Christmas, too. And one of the wonderful things about being members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is that we make the events of the Christmas season a part of our day-to-day living. As I read the account of the birth of my Savior, I long to have the experience the Wise Men had—to be led by a star; or to experience what the shepherds did—to be invited to Bethlehem, invited by a choir of angels. I want to kneel at the manger and smell the clean straw and see that tiny baby with His earthly mother, to witness for myself this miracle. I believe that in every mortal there is an instinctive desire to come unto Christ. Perhaps we have a basic human need, because each of us is a child of God, to make that commitment to the spiritual part of our being. We each try to meet this need according to what we know. As members of His true church, perhaps we do not need to be taught new things as much as we need to be reminded of what we already know. This is what pondering the birth of our Savior does for all of us. I believe it reminds our mortal minds of things our spirits already know. In this latter day I have been invited to witness marvelous things for myself. The invitation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, “Come unto Christ” and “Come back,” is meant for each of God’s children. This invitation has stood true since Jesus said to His disciples, “Come, follow me.” (See Matt. 4:19.) Through the dispensations, prophets have issued the same invitation to all who will listen. The prophet Alma, the son of Alma, carried this important message to the members in Zarahemla who needed to be reminded. The prophet said, “Behold, he sendeth an invitation unto all men, for the arms of mercy are extended...
