Resources for Environmental Stewardship

Click here for the LDS Gospel Topics page on Environmental Stewardship. Scriptures, articles, talks by church leaders and more.

We gratefully study and share the April 2018 statement of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints “In Honoring Creation, We Honor the Creator.”

A new database is available to search the scriptures and church leaders on topics related to the Creation and our care for it in the resource library of LDS Earth Stewardship.

LDS Earth Stewardship is creating monthly Family Home Evening lessons that are related to the scripture study handbook“Come, Follow Me”.

A marvelous compilation of LDS teachings on earth stewardship was made by Craig Galli, former member of Kensington Ward, Washington DC Stake. (We wish that Craig and Lark Galli might consider returning to Maryland.)

"But as an intelligent being, if I have a mind capable of reflection, I wish to contemplate the works of nature, and to know something of nature's God, and my destiny. I love to view the things around me; to gaze upon the sun, moon, and stars; to study the planetary system, and the world we inhabit . . . everything is beautifully harmonious, and perfectly adapted to the position it occupies in the world. Whether you look at birds, beasts, or the human system, you see something exquisitely beautiful and harmonious, and worthy of the contemplation of all intelligence." —John Taylor
