OUR HISTORYLatter-dayVillage.com began in 2005 as a merger between twoveteran LDS websites, Primary, ETC and LDSSeminaryFiles, bothof which started in 1997 and followed similar paths as paidmembership sites for LDS teachers. Our HistoryThe material at LDV is a combination of both “gathered” andoriginal content. We have been collecting ideas from LDSteachers and leaders around the world for 14 years. These aretried and true ideas and files submitted by experienced teachers“in the field.” The ideas are organized and categorized for easeof use and represent a wealth ofscholarship, experience, creativity and time – TIME YOU WILLSAVE – because if there is one thing we DON’T want you to do itis to reinvent the wheel! NEXT . . .
The original content is commissioned by LDV fromartists, authors, musicians, photographers and gospelscholars/experts and is prepared especially for our Latter-dayVillage.com members. continuedIn addition to our vast collections of archived and newcontent, one of the hallmarks of Latter-dayVillage is ourseminary email group/forum, where the world is just a mouseclick away as teachers across the globe share their inspiredideas, ask for help with current needs, counsel, commiserate andassist one another. Do you need to find a quote you heard oncethat is perfect for your upcoming lesson – ask and ye shallreceive! This is a great resource and community for many aseminary teacher feeling isolated in the pre-dawn world. NEXT . . .
We have had a mail-order store from the very beginning. In fact,Primary, ETC was started specifically to sell the first publishedbook by founder, Debra Woods – Primary Scripture SearchVolume 1, Discovering the Hidden Treasures in the Scriptures.To attract visitors, Debra put everything she had ever thought up continuedor designed for her callings on the site so people wouldappreciate her gift for creativity and buy the book. Since then,we have sold four more Scripture Search books and manyproducts from other publishers and distributors – many of whomDebra met at the annual LDS Bookseller’s AssociationConvention in Salt Lake City where most LDS publishers andmanufacturers display their wares for store owners nation (andworld) wide. NEXT . . .
We’ve had many different shopping carts over the years, andnow offerbooks, charts, games, stories, bookmarks, stickers, keychains, jewelry, t-shirts, digital art, digital books and much more in oursecure shopping cart. continuedLDV has suffered the unexpected passing of our webmaster, TimHolder, in 2008; being hacked and shut down for a few weeks in2010, the year of red alert emergency mode handicappedfunctioning that followed, slashing our revenues by more thanhalf and increasing labor mani-fold.In Spring 2011 we found a new web developer, Chris Egglestonof www.eggbizdev.com who has made it possible for LDV tonot only carry on, but to reach all new heights with his beautifulweb redesign. NEXT . . .
Some powerful business coaching and mentoring from Kim Flynnand Gerald Rogers has been a critical part of the revitalization ofLDV.The transition, for our faithful long-term followers, may be a bitsticky at first – we are using completely different continuedsoftware/technology with a new webhost on this brand newiteration of your old favorite website . . . but before you know it– all the wrinkles will be ironed out and you will breathe, as willwe, a great sigh of relief and be so excited about the new formatand features of LATTER-DAY VILLAGE – THE NEXT GENERATION.Thank you for your interest and patronage! ~ Debra Woods ~ ~ LDV Founder ~
