Mormons and Yoga with LeAnne Tolley In 1 Thessalonians 5, the same chapter where Paul calls us to be "children of the light," he tells us to "prove all things; hold fast that which is good."  For many in today's stressful, get-it-all-done Western society, the practice of Yoga is proving to be a good thing.

LeAnne Tolley, a Latter-day Saint and Certified Yoga Teacher, talks about the benefits of developing the mind-body-spirit connection, why many modern girls and women are taught hatred of their bodies, and how the practice of Yoga can be compatible with the principles of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.

"The Life of Christ" - Paintings by James Tissot
Though he didn't begin his biblical works until the last 10 years of his life, French painter James Tissot managed to complete more than 700 paintings of the New Testament and the Old Testament--a project he was still engaged in at the time of his death.

Rita Wright from the BYU Museum of Art is passionate about these paintings and points out highlights from the New Testament collection opening today at the Museum and running through January 9, 2011, sprinkling in observations about Tissot's life, way of working, details of the paintings themselves, and the surprising reaction to their Paris premiere among both the clergy and the elite.  Plus, an unexpected "prophetic" connection to an edition of Tissot's illustrated bible used by two different LDS Church presidents.
