About Us


The sole objective of the Latter Day Light website and newsletter is to encourage you to “Stand & Shine” by serving as a source of daily gospel inspiration and encouragement to follow the covenant path.

We are a team of volunteers who are all members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We are passionate about sharing the good news of the Gospel with the world. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of the world, and that through Him, we can find peace, joy, and eternal life.

We aim to provide content that points you to the Savior and deepens your conversion by partaking in His enabling power. Whether you are a lifelong member of the Church or are just beginning to explore your faith, we hope that our website will be a valuable resource for you on your spiritual journey.

We believe in the power of community and encourage you to engage with us and other like-minded individuals through our website, newsletter, and Facebook page. We welcome your comments, questions, and feedback, and we strive to create a safe and respectful space for dialogue and discussion.

Thank you for visiting Latter-day Light. We hope that the content we provide will inspire and uplift you, and that you will feel the love and light of the Restored Gospel as you explore our resources. May God bless you on your journey of faith, and may you find joy and peace in the knowledge of His love for you.


Latter Day Light was started by Barton Golding in 2000 as an email newsletter that has since come to include a Facebook page and this website. The email list has grown to thousands of subscribers and is enjoyed around the world.

On November 5, 2021, due to health complications, Barton passed away. Those who personally knew Barton have missed his humble but lively personality. He deeply cared about the Restored Gospel and sharing its message. His legacy of bringing light and inspiration to thousands will continue to encourage and uplift those who knew him, and those who will come to know him through his written works.

At the beginning of 2022, the family of Barton Golding gave ownership of Latter Day Light and all its digital assets to a group of Barton’s close friends, who were a part of Latter Day Light’s journey at the very beginning. They continue to send out his daily inspirational newsletter and update the website.
