A List of 50 Faithful Mormon Blogs

When a Latter-day Saint who has a testimony goes on the Internet it is hard to navigate the good, the not as good, the bad, and the plain evil. There is also the issue of size with more than an abundance of choices for reading. Agrigators, that gather a collection of blogs, are helpful. Yet, they too can be overcrowded at times for those just starting out on the Internet journey.

The list below is a type of primer of discovery for believing Mormons who don't want or have the time to swim in the garbage, but want to find some options. Each blog picked contains content suitable for faithful Mormons who seek the Spirit along with engaging the mind. It is far from exhaustive, but contains those that seem strong in testimony and currently consistent in posting. The blog world is constantly changing and some could fall out of use, but those that had a post in December and seemed to post at least once a month were chosen over others.

Happy New Year:

Thanks for this, Jettboy. Awesome!

Huston said...

Thank you for making this list! I'll be sure to check out the ones I don't know yet. Please also consider my blog, Gently Hew Stone: gentlyhewstone.wordpress.com.

Nathan said...

Thanks for including my and Jeff's blog (LDSphilosopher.com). It's always encouraging to know people are reading it and getting something out of it.

I will definitely be searching this list for new places to go browsing. I'm glad you included Jeff Lindsay's Mormanity, Max Wilson's SixteenSmallStones, and Lehi's Library---they're great! I've also found FAIR and No Death Before the Fall to be useful for research.

Thanks man.

Becoming LDS said...

Thanks for your nice comment and including me in your list. I'll definitely have to check out many of the others that I am not familiar with. Thanks again.

Very kind of you. Thanks for listing Mormanity.org!

Jack Mormon said...

Much obliged for the recognition afforded to Mormonism-Unveiled. Since you are not included under the Mormon Archipelago umbrella (the Bloggernacle), I've posted a link to your blog on my sidebar.

Mors said...

Thank you for remembering THE IRON ROD. I am humbled and grateful. I haven't been posting as much as I should. This encouragement will inspire me to post more often.

It's nice to know AMV is recognized as faithful. Sometimes, writing about the arts, people assume the worst.

Jettboy said...

Th, I think part of it is the people who post there. I might not always agree with the art (and this is my personal opinion list), but I have never read any article that seemed negative toward the LDS Church or faith. As a lover of reading and art myself, it is nice to discuss the subject without feeling out of place as a believer.

thanks for the list, I'm going to have to peruse it more when I have some time.

Matt said...

Thanks for including me as well.

.

I would agree with that.

Papa D said...

I would suggest "As Sistas in Zion". It is an excellent blog, it's funny, and their post about Prof. Bott's recent statements was amazing - probably the best I read anywhere.

Jettboy said...

I agree and did put them on my links list.
