LDS Living is a bimonthly magazine dedicated to empowering families to make a positive difference in the home and community. Articles are often assigned to an approved group of freelance or staff writers, but we are always interested in taking a look at other writers and their ideas.
Each LDS Living article should be informative and inspiring, and enable readers to make a difference in their families or communities. We desire engaging articles that tell a story, explain "how to," or provide unique and entertaining insights into the LDS lifestyle. Heavy doctrine or scripture references are not appropriate for our publication.
As an international publication to members and friends of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we're interested in stories that appeal to a wide variety of families. We cannot publish stories that have appeared in other national publications. We are open to any article idea, but here a some examples of what we are looking for:
