Our Stories are personal narrative essays written by people within our community.
An important part of North Star’s mission is to provide a forum which gives voice to the perspectives, experiences, and testimonies of individual Latter-day Saints — real stories of real people — who are striving to live the gospel in accordance with the doctrines and precepts of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
If you would like to share a personal essay on how a particular experience or realization has influenced your personal and spiritual growth, your relationship with God, or your commitment to the gospel or the church, we would love to hear it. To learn how to submit an Our Stories essay, see our Submit Articles page.
The following Our Stories articles are listed in reverse-chronological order, with the most recently published essays listed first.
Our Stories essays are distinct from Community Voices essays in that Our Stories essays are strictly narrative while Community Voices essays give individuals in the North Star community an opportunity to share a particular perspective on a given topic or theme.
