About Us

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

Latter Day Light was started by Barton Golding in 2000 as an emailed 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, the founder of Latter Day Light, Barton Golding passed away. Those that 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 not be forgotten.

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.
