When musical group Hudson Lights released their first album late last year, we did a giveaway--and have never had so many people write in about how impressed they were with the quality of the prize! While they might be new on the scene, Hudson Lights is definitely a group you'll want to look for in 2014 and beyond. Listen now:
Don't miss the latest news on how construction is coming along in these LDS temples around the world. We can't wait for these areas to be blessed with temples of their own!
It's always exciting when a new temple is announced in general conference, so we at LDS Living wanted to give you a quick update on five temples being built around the world. Thanks to ldschurchtemples.com, we were able to find the latest construction photos for all temples to compare to the artist's rendering. Check out the status below for the Córdoba Argentina Temple, Fort Lauderdale Florida, Philadelphia Pennsylvania Temple, Sapporo Japan Temple, and Trujillo Perú Temple.

Gail "Hal" Halvorsen, known to the world as the World War II Candy Bomber, talks about hope, gratitude, and how sharing two sticks of gum changed the course of his life.
“It all started when I was maybe 10 or 12 years old,” explains Colonel Gail S. “Hal” Halvorsen. “I was raised on a farm. We had two teams of horses to pull a wagon, and one day after a storm, when it was muddy, my dad stopped and took me up to an old 2,000 pound draft horse.” Instead of the expected toothbrush lesson, Halvorsen was surprised when his dad said, “See this little bit? This bit that goes in the horse’s mouth? It turns around that whole 2,000 pound body."
Halvorsen continues, "My father quoted James, how out of little things proceed that which is great, and then repeated how we put bits in the horse’s mouth and we turn the whole body about, just like the helms of ships turn the ships about. He said, ‘As you go through life, any decision you make without the Holy Ghost is going to be dangerous.’”
