The Book of Mormon Project is simple. I wanted to gather a group of women who would be willing to express their testimonies and heart in an artistic way. An offering of their witness of truth in a verse of scripture that has changed their heart, touched their life, and lit up the darkness. I wanted to incorporate these artistic expressions of faith within the amazing wide margin PDF of The Book of Mormon. The wide margin PDF provides margins wide enough for us to actually write something down. Thoughts, questions, perceptions, ideas, fears, worries, impressions, inspiration. to draw hearts and jot down divine guidance for us, personally.
“There is power in the Book of Mormon which will begin to flow into your lives the moment you begin a serious study of the book. You will find greater power to resist temptation. You will find the power to avoid deception. You will find the power to stay on the straight and narrow path… you will find life in greater and greater abundance.” — Ezra Taft Benson
We have a million moments in our 24 hours. my prayer for you and me is that we take our power back from the hustle that the world tells us we need to be doing. That we take our intentions and hold them in our hands… and in the quiet, we stop just trying at the ones that matter. That we hit the pause button and open The Book of Mormon and drink, drink deeply, of living waters. We quench the thirst and feed our soul. That we connect, in a real and vulnerable way, to god, ourself, and then to others. That we fill the margins with a different kind of list. A list of whatever god is trying to whisper to our souls. To let those impressions, thoughts, and inspirations lead the way in the rest of our moments.
The Book of Mormon Project is free to all. This listing will send you a link to download the PDF. In the download there are three different documents. One is the cover art to the PDF, the other is the actual wide margin PDF of The Book of Mormon with artwork by LDS women of faith, and the last is printing guidelines to help you print and spiral bind your very own copy.
From me and the other artists, you’re not alone.
And you are loved.
