All adult women in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are included as members of the Relief Society, the church’s women’s organization. Formally organized in 1842, women in the church originally wanted to form a charitable society to meet the needs in their community by caring f…
Asian American Christian leaders said Thursday their congregations are saddened and outraged after a white gunman killed eight people — most of them women of Asian descent — at three Atlanta-area massage parlors. And they’re calling for action beyond prayers.

My daughter recently brought me a coffee, and knowing that I enjoy my coffee hot, she ordered it “extra hot.” Now the meaning of this would be clear if not for the fact that she had ordered for me a Habanero Mocha. Now you can see how the extra hot might have a different meaning.
I’ve always been the kind of person who follows instructions and mostly does what she’s supposed to.
BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) — For over three years, Maria Macario has been too afraid to leave the white steepled First Parish church just outside Boston.
The worst aspect of Disney’s recent live-action remakes of past animated classics is that most of them tell the same exact story. There’s nothing new for the audience to gain, the characters stay stagnant, and we end up watching an almost shot-for-shot remake of the animated film for nostalg…
Along the same lines as “Coco,” “Onward” attempts to grapple with the hereafter and how families deal with death. “Coco” is much more thoughtful about it, providing an emotionally resonant portrait love, loss, and death. “Onward” doesn’t reach those heights but does produce some satisfying s…
Whatever happened to social dancing? Even up until just a generation or two ago, waltzes, foxtrots, jitterbugs, Virginia reels and square dances were common forms of fun among the old and young alike. Are these community gathering art forms lost forever?

Pushed back from a November 2019 release after backlash focusing on the look of the title character, which was indeed nightmarish, Paramount’s “Sonic the Hedgehog” seemed destined for failure. A revised February release date — with new special effects — didn’t do it any favors, as that time …
“Birds of Prey” is much better than “Suicide Squad,” but that’s a low bar indeed. At least it’s a bit more upbeat about Gotham and the miscreants that populate it. There’s a sense of humor here that’s sorely missing in other DC fare. It’s when it tries too hard for adorable dementedness that…
NEW YORK (AP) — The Sundance Film Festival, coming at the start of a new movie calendar, is an annual rite of renewal. New movies. New filmmakers. New voices. And that feels especially welcome this year.

We are not great at evaluating our own health. Sure, our sniffles tell us if we have a cold, and back pain is pretty obvious. However, we probably tell ourselves that we weigh less and exercise more than we really do. The 2017 Utah Health Values Study noted that only 45 percent of people in …
Compared to the summer months, I always feel housebound during Utah’s winters. It’s not that I’m inactive. Rather, the limited daylight hours put a cramp in my style. I like running up Green Canyon on early summer mornings. I enjoy riding my bike around the neighborhood with my hubby, Robert…
The seasons help us schedule and plan our lives. Currently, we are enjoying the football season — Go Aggies! The camping and fishing seasons are winding down, and ski season is just over the horizon. Unfortunately, flu season is upon us (don’t forget your flu shot), and the upcoming holiday …
