Below are a list of websites that M.A.R.S has provided for the reader’s further research and study of Mormonism. There are also links for various resources and even faith-promoting blogs. We will not post links to familiar and known Anti-Mormon websites. Each link provided has a brief introduction of what it is about (garnered from the “about” page) in order to provide a reader some understanding of what information they will find.
Favorite Blogs – LDS Study/Apologetics:
American Testament: The Book of Mormon – Don’t judge this book by its cover or by what you might think you know about it. Take some time to read it. We have read it numerous times and are posting topics here to help you as you read. As Herbert Spencer once said, “There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance – that principle is contempt prior to investigation.”
Doug Simpson’s Blog– This weblog is intended as a medium for accessing my current and past Sunday School handouts.
I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon). I have been a Sunday School teacher for over four years (both youth and adult classes) in the Green Mountain 1st Ward of the Lakewood Colorado Stake. Over time I have developed a handout format I find useful as an aid to class study, learning, and participation.
This blog is not an official publication of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The information and opinions expressed herein are my sole responsibility and those of the quoted authors.
Latter-day Conservative – The purpose of LatterdayConservative.com is to provide educational resources that promote Liberty based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. On this website you will find many quotes, articles, videos and downloads featuring teachings of latter-day prophets and other prominent Latter-day Saints.
Lehi’s Library – Welcome to Lehi’s Library. This blog exists primarily as a place for me to archive in one convenient place some of the many interesting things I learn in my studies of LDS apologetics and scholarship. I used to study and learn interesting and exciting things about the gospel but would soon forget about them or would not be able to access them easily. With this blog that problem is solved.

LDS.Net– is owned and operated by More Good Foundation. The mission of More Good Foundation is:
- Illuminate the fruits of LDS Church members (Mormons)
- Facilitate personal expressions of faith
- Reach out to friends of other faiths using their vocabulary
- Publish and market high quality LDS content
- Provide a non-authoritative voice

The More Good Foundation is committed to helping faithful Mormons share their stories with the world, and then helping the world find those stories quickly and easily. As a people we have positive, powerful stories to tell–and that “telling” is important. We don’t believe in hiding our candle under a bushel, and the Internet provides a way for us to collectively hold our candles up, providing light to all and helping them see what that light helps us to see.
