Hua attended my church in LA for about nine months before getting baptized in May of 2012. I recently asked some questions about his conversion process and I loved his answers. Straightforward, candid, and wonderfully honest.

By: Danny Rasmussen and Rebbie Groesbeck // In 2011, Jimmer Fredette found himself in the spotlight (no pun intended) during his senior year as he led the BYU basketball team to the Sweet 16. Along the way, he picked up every major award that college basketball has to offer including National Player of the Year, the Wooden Award, the Naismith Award, the Adolph Rupp Trophy, and the Oscar Robertson trophy. Jimmer was taken 10th overall in the 2011 NBA draft and found himself playing for the Sacramento Kings. He met... Read The Rest →
By: Jake Parsons // In June of last year, a pair of LDS missionaries knocked on my door in Oklahoma City. I told them I was busy (I wasn’t) so they asked if they could come back another time. I agreed, trying not to be rude, but I had no intention of ever seeing them again. They came back a second time and I gave them the same routine. They came back several more times, and I either wouldn’t open the door or would just tell them I was too... Read The Rest →
By: Brad Masters January is here, and as usual, it promises to be a month of packed gyms, heavy salad consumption, and high-volume Amazon book sales. As you’ve undoubtedly seen, everyone’s new years resolutions are popping up on Facebook and Twitter. In fact, I just googled “Buzzfeed New Years Resolution” and I wasn’t even surprised to see “27 Cats Who Completely Forgot About Their New Years Resolutions In 2013” as one of the first results. It’s that time of year, again. But there is something refreshingly faith affirming to me... Read The Rest →
By now, all the gifts have (hopefully) been bought and all the stockings hung. But we hope in addition to the presents that are exchanged this Christmas, we can also remember to give the most important gift of all: to reach out and share the love of Christ with everyone we know–or perhaps even those we don’t. Merry Merry Christmas, from all of us to you!
By: Danny Rasmussen // You may have been shocked to learn that your favorite rock star (Brandon Flowers) or your favorite DJ (KASKADE) is Mormon. But what about your favorite Christmas elf??
One year ago today, Normons.com was born. We’d like to thank all our wonderful fans (as well as our haters) for reading, commenting, and inspiring us to keep being better. We’d also like to thank Google hangout for keeping us connected across seven cities. One year older and wiser too. Happy Birthday, thanks to YOU.
By: Brad Masters // Alain de Botton is not the most famous atheist . . . but he might be the most interesting. He recently wrote a book called Religion for Atheists and has started a movement in which atheists attend — for lack of a better word — church. They sing hymns and hear sermons. To many Christians, this sounds bizarre. It sort of is. But it’s also pretty rad. You see, when de Botton was in his twenties, he experienced what he called a “crisis of faithlessness.” All...

By: Rebbie Groesbeck // Two years ago, I packed up and left my home state of Utah for the city of angels. My Mormonism has astounded and confused people since the day I got here.
