Your contributions help us share stories that reach across broad demographics.

Our Editorial Focus

LDS Living articles should be informative and faith-promoting for our readers. There are lots of article types that can meet that objective. For example, our readers love pieces that tell a compelling story from the life of a person of faith. They’re also interested in “how-to” articles that shed new light on what it means to live gospel principles. We’re happy to consider any unique, fun articles that provide entertaining insights into the Latter-day Saint lifestyle. Please be aware that we can’t publish stories that have appeared in other publications.

  • Don’t be afraid to do some research. Find sources to back up your ideas.
  • When you email us your submission, tell us a little bit about yourself and why you chose to write about what you did.
