As the inspiration started to flow for this portion of “The Book of Mormon Project”, i couldn’t even really put my finger on what it was going to look like or unfold into. I just knew that I needed to walk.
Some days felt more like sprinting. Some felt like being blindfolded and led only by a voice pointing me left and right with no seeming rhyme or reason.
The last three months I’ve put out the first three Find Study Guides- “Find”, “Gratitude”, and “The Advent”. Each topic based but followed the similar pattern I keep finding myself studying the scriptures these days…
Through tiny steps, every single day. With Inspired Questions and getting on ground level with the stories and words of old, lacing their truths with my own imperfect heart beating life. Through art and letters and words that resonate deep in my heart.
As I tried to breathe life into the next 5 Companion Guides I had created, I could not see the finish line. I went back and forth with different ideas and possibilities, searching for the right path. Eventually just getting quiet and waiting, trusting in Gods ever sure unfolding power in my life, and especially in this now sacred project.
Line upon line.
And here we are.
Volume One of my prayerfully created Find Companion Guides to The Book of Mormon will be available for pre-orders this weekend, shipping the week of December 8th, just in time for Christmas. And in plenty of time for the coming year, where I’m never ever going to stop reminding you that you are loved, and pushing you towards God through your study of The Book of Mormon. Every single day.
Volume One is the first 5 Find Study Guides perfectly bound into one 8x10 book, full color, my fingerprints ingrained onto every page, every word, every piece of art, every square inch. My thoughts and questions and small whispers of the Spirit as I read First Nephi through the first half of Alma.
Here’s what I want you to know above all else, I am not the great teacher. I am not a scripture master, or expert, or studied worship leader. I am just a girl, a child of God like you, on a mission to bring you to your Savior. The Spirit is the Great Teacher. The Book of Mormon has your answers. I pray to just reflect the love that God has for you, and be a friend in this loud and scary world, offering a quiet invitation to ask, seek, and FIND your answers through your study every single day of The Book of Mormon.
I am leaping into unknown territory, making the biggest investment in this inspired project yet, with a huge prayer in my heart that you will leap with me.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, as I said unto my disciples, where two or three are gathered together in my name, as touching one thing, behold, there will I be in the midst of them—even so am I in the midst of you.
I have faith, and it is moving personal mountains within me. That faith is rooted in Jesus Christ, my Redeemer and Savior and older Brother. It was found in my diligent efforts and study of another testament of Him, The Book of Mormon.
Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not.
You are loved.
