I am truly thankful for a loving wife whom God rescued from a false prophet’s grip , my mom and brothers and sister as well as my church family . I am also thankful for ministries like MRM who seek to inform christians about Mormonism and to reach out in love to the precious Mormon people with the liberating gospel of Jesus .
Thanks MRM staff for all you do . God bless all of you and your families .

Years ago, perhaps I should say decades ago, I read a then new book titled “Prison to Praise”. I had just been saved, it was during the Jesus movement of the late 60s early 70s, and there were a lot of must read books around. I was green as grass when it came to Christianity despite having gone to Catholic School and survived the indoctrination. Actually that’s a little harsh since over the years I’ve come to appreciate the moral training and much of the spirituality while not some of the doctrine.
Prison to Praise chronicles Merlin Carothers’ spiritual journey from a hostile, bitter young soldier in World War II to accepting Christ and returning to the military as a chaplain. Through his story, the reader discovers how to be set free from your prison of circumstances.
Being set free is not just a technique or an attitude but it helps the believer recognize God’s hand in even the most dire of circumstances. It’s almost simplistic to say the message of the book is to praise God for everything although that’s basically what the author recommends. It’s about having a spiritual outlook and developing that deep personal relationship with God through His Son, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It’s Thanksgiving Season. Some how this book popped into my mind despite the decades that have passed since I first read it. I may have to read it again.
Most people who have been involved with Mormonism have had an unpleasant experience of one sort or another. If we approach these unpleasant circumstances in the right spirit they can become learning experiences.
“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18
