Helpful online LDS Church resources you may not know about

Published: Wednesday, Feb. 1 2012 6:43 p.m. MST

Adam Rushforth may leave home without his wallet, but he always remembers his phone. He told tech.lds.org that even though he is blind, having access to the scriptures through the Gospel Library mobile app is wonderful. "One of my favorite features is the diction option while searching the database," Rushforth said. "I love how easy it is to tell the phone a phrase and have the Gospel Library app give me several options where that phrase or those words are found. It searches through its entire library and organizes the results in a way that makes it fast and easy for me to find the desired reference." The Gospel Library mobile app is just one of the many new or lesser-known LDS resources available to users of all ages and abilities. As The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints continues to grow and technology advances, so does the information to learn, teach and promote the work of the Lord.

I didn't know about 6-9 and I visit the site fairly frequently. I have the Gospel Library app on my android phone and now my Kindle Fire. I love this great tool. I make more notes, highlight more, and read more than I ever have before now. I love that the Gospel Library app now syncs with the my study notebook account. Wonderful tools!

I also learned about OpenDns on the tech.lds site (or maybe the blog of one of the head tech guys?) and I constantly find myself learning of new tools, options, ideas, and wonderful gifts from the Church and these services. Social networking 'connects' people to each other but encourages more worldly things in our lives than anything else. Well, the Church website connects members with effective ways to share what we can do to help each other, help ourselves, and enrich our lives. I couldn't be more pleased with these services.

Some great work for a great work. Keep it up guys! You're really helping people like me out more than I could possibly express on here.

Thanks again for publishing this article in this section. You have done so much for getting the word out and this type of article should be a topic for General Conference or at least a blip in the editions of the Church Magazines and the family home evening resource publications. The ability the world has now to access from their various devices, newspapers, magazines, television and radio and especially online with all these addresses. The hard part will be to keep the other side from using it and twisting it to deceive those that are truely seeking the light. Thanks for doing all you can to help us keep our compass aligned and headed in the right direction. There are so many sources and the DN is focused in the right direction. I and my family appreciate your service for us.
