Malcolm Ravenclaw

Hello, my name is Malcolm and I’m an LDS (Mormon) single adult with a passion for life and a love for the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have a strong conviction that living a gospel-centered lifestyle is the best way to find happiness as a single adult and I’ve seen the blessings that have come into my life through obedience to true principles.

I never intended to become a blogger, but I had a series of personal experiences in which the Spirit strongly compelled me to share my story with my fellow single adults. Through blogging, I hope to use my life experiences and personal testimony to help encourage, uplift, and inspire single adults across the world. Hurrah for Israel!

Gina: Editor



My name is Gina, I grew up in Rexburg, ID, and moved to Boise nearly ten years ago. I studied at Boise State University to attain a Bachelors degree in English Literature, with the intent to go to graduate school to study English emphasizing in Gender and Post-Colonial studies. Malcolm approached me to discuss the blog and asked that I be the editor. I accepted. I think this blog, and the accompanying Facebook page, is a great idea. I hope that it will create an avenue and a new rhetorical forum for single adults to connect with others and learn about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the joy that it can bring to our lives.

Alex: YSA Blog Admin for LDS Single Friends

Alexander Hickens


I am Alex Hicken, an architecture student at Brigham Young University – Idaho. I have many passions. A passion for writing has developed over the many years in my life, but a busy lifestyle leaves me to a personal minimum standard of journal writing, which remains as my blogging content. My other passions can be discovered there. I am also writing a science fiction novel on the side slowly. My passion for blogging has lead me to establishing social networks pages, sharing the articles of single adult Mormon bloggers. My goal in the blog spot is creating a location, where the light of Christ from the single adults can be seen. There are a lot of individual bloggers, and uniting them will make a more powerful witness of the Gospel. My role in this community of LDS Single Friends will be to share the most impressive content of the blogs that I come across. If you have a blog and would like to have me share your articles on my social network pages, you can email me at
