About our site

Everyone in the world needs answers to life's great questions. Thus we made Real Life Answers: a blog about our own experiences and life answers. Here you’ll find many different snapshots taken from the lives of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, commonly referred to as "Mormons." We hope that as you explore our stories, you will find answers that will build your faith in God and Jesus Christ. This blog is not the Church’s official blog or website. The official Church site is Mormon.org, which we fully endorse.
