Did you know you have your own personal, private online space at to collect your gospel content and notes and organize your gospel study?

If LDS mobile apps are your primary source for gospel study, you should know about the tools that are available online in Notes (also called Notes and Journaling). This “study space” is where all the bookmarks, tags, highlighted passages, and notations created in Gospel Library apps or online at come together and stay in sync.

Tools available at this site help you organize the results of your gospel study, edit or remove items, and filter and see items you have categorized.

The interface is also very helpful when you are preparing a talk or lesson plan because as you are browse resources across, you can gather all your ideas, authoritative quotes, and scripture passages together in one place, then download or print the results so you are not dependent upon the meetinghouse Internet!

The beauty of the gospel as expressed in the lives of Latter-day Saints shines through the languages, cultures, and customs of Church members worldwide.  It is “richness” you can experience first hand by visiting Country Communication Pages.

Country websites have been around and evolving for a while in many parts of the world. In 2013, country communication pages were approved and directed to be supervised by area presidencies.  Recent integration with navigation and web design provide enhanced, enlarged, and better communication pages so that people all over the world may benefit.

With improvements to Church websites, new navigation menus, links to social media, and more interactive web resources, an LDS Account is one of the most overlooked and powerful features of the Church’s web presence. It allows you to use a single user name and password multiple places, and in many places connects you seamlessly from one location to another. Single sign-in has been around for a while. It has reduced development costs, improved user security, and facilitated web integration.

Obtaining an LDS Account is an easy process from wherever you see a sign-in link on a Church-sponsored website. LDS Accounts are managed centrally from When logged into your account profile, you can change your password, display name, preferred language, and a number of other things related to online access.

Area Technology Specialist Missionaries Have Unique Opportunities Print E-mail

Ask an Area Technology Specialist (ATS) missionary what a typical day is like and you won’t get the same answer twice. The ATS mission experience differs for each couple and the area where they serve. Ask about where technology missionaries find their greatest rewards, and most will say working with people, being ambassadors for the use of technology, and training leaders are their most successful activities.

According to Elder and Sister Bentley, who are serving in the Caribbean, “We are planting seeds and growing the process. It has been wonderful working with members who are happy to lend us people from a resource perspective, and we are working on creative ways to share equipment resources. No situation has been anything other than 100% positive!”

Technology on a Mission: a "Sacred Opportunity" Print E-mail

When Hermana (Sister Alyssa) Pearson was handed an iPad six weeks into her mission she was humbled by the sense of trust that accompanied the ”sacred opportunity to hasten the work of salvation” with technology. She was among the first in a Spanish speaking mission that covers a large urban area to use iPads for direct proselytizing, social media contacting, planning, and personal gospel study. If you were to talk to Alyssa about using technology to do missionary work, you’ll sense that the missionary spirit is still present two months after coming home, and warm thoughts and tender feelings permeate her experiences with people and technology.
