About the book:

For many members of the church, the temple endowment remains something of a mystery. Yet when understood, the temple can function in our lives as a modern day Liahona, giving us our bearings in our mortal journey back to our Father. “Understanding Your Endowment” is packed with insights and keys, which can help you unlock the temple’s purpose and meaning in your life. It will help you understand the blessings the Lord offers His children through His temples and will enrich your personal temple worship.

“Understanding Your Endowment” examines topics such as covenant ceremonies, the initiatory ordinances, the endowment, and temple sealings in a manner that is plain and easy to understand while still respecting their sacred and confidential nature. Whether you are preparing to enter the temple for the first time or already attend regularly, your temple worship will be enhanced by reading this book.

About the author:

Cory B. Jensen graduated with honors from Brigham Young University with a Masters of Business Administration degree. He currently serves as an ordinance worker in the Mount Timpanogos Temple. He and his wife, Traci, are the parents of four children. Cory grew up in the shadow of the Logan temple and developed a love for the temple early in life.  He wants most of all to be a faithful disciple of Christ and a loving husband, father, grandfather, son and brother.  He often falls short but keeps trying.  He hopes that the message of this book will enrich your temple experience and bless your life.  He also really hopes you will judge it based upon its message and not by the cover or who wrote it.  It’s the message that matters.

On Cloudy Mountain – ebook

Fay Klingler – Author of “A Woman’s Power” – winner of the Silver Quill Award

Oct. 3, 2012″”DRAPER, Utah””Fay A. Klingler, author of The LDS Grandparents’ Idea Book and Shattered: Six Steps from Betrayal to Recovery, has been awarded the 2012 Silver Quill Non-fiction Publications Award for her recent book, A Woman’s Power: Threads that Bind Us to God.

 

This award is given annually by the League of Utah Writers, a non-profit organization dedicated to offering friendship, education and encouragement to writers of Utah and is supported by a grant from the Utah Division of Arts and Museums and the National Endowment for the Arts in Washington D.C.

 

“I felt driven to write this book,” said Klingler. “I love to write on women’s issues. The value of a woman’s influence cannot be overstated. However, as women, first we must value ourselves, believe in ourselves, and be aware of the importance and power of women in today’s society.”

 

Over the years the Draper author’s target audience has been women. Many well-known national organizations and therapists endorsed her best-seller Shattered: Six Steps from Betrayal to Recovery.

 

“I started out writing a Mother’s Day booklet for Bookcraft,” said Klingler. “From there I wrote about time management for women and how to recover from divorce. Although there was a period of time in my life when I wrote school curriculum and technical books for the railroad, banks, and oil refineries, my love of writing has always been writing materials for the female population.”

 

The League of Utah Writers and its members are writers with various interests at all levels of skill and professionalism.

 

“I’ve appreciated the support, critiquing, and networking available through the League,” said Klingler. “This year’s talented professionals at the annual conference held in Park City taught important writing skills that helped me in my craft. I came home anxious to complete my next work and share it with others.”
