Introducing My Theme for this Year’s A-Z Challenge: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

This is my third year of participating in the A-Z blogging challenge. It is also the first year that I have also entered the Challenge with a specific theme, although last year I inadvertently had one, more or less. For those of you who don’t know what the challenge consists of, it’s a one month challenge (the month of April) where each day except Sunday we write a short article beginning with each letter of the alphabet, in order, either on a set theme or on a variety of unrelated subjects. 

One day while I was busily trying to find a subject for each letter of the alphabet that I could use during the 2015 A-Z Bloggers’ Challenge, the thought came to me that I could write a whole series built on one theme, the Church in which I am a member. I’ve been a member of the Church since 1973 and I have discovered that there is such a plethora of misconceptions that people have regarding the Church, that I could almost write TWO full challenges (at a minimum) except for the letter X; I did find one, however.

My articles will be mainly of an informative nature; it is not my intention to try and convert anyone through these articles, but if anyone IS interested in knowing more about the Church, I assure you I won’t be saddened. I’m excited to write these articles, because they are on a subject that is very important to me. There are some of my readers who find illustrations to be essential; I will try to include them whenever possible.

I hope you will enjoy my theme this year and find my articles useful and interesting. See you tomorrow!
