**We are starting Monday, July 15th!***
I've started this new blog so that we can read the Book of Mormon together and discuss our favorite scriptures and teachings. If you are reading this later than the start date, you can join us anytime! Just click on the button on my sidebar to contact me for your very own copy of the Book of Mormon.
I know that most of you have your very own religion and some of you are wanting to know more about the LDS church also known as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. By reading this book, it will answer a lot of your questions. Even if you are not interested in the LDS church, it really is a very spiritually uplifting book.
What is the Book of Mormon?
"The Book of Mormon is the word of God, like the Bible. It is Holy Scripture, with form and content similar to that of the Bible. Both books contain God's guidance as revealed to prophets as well as religious histories of different civilizations. While the Bible is written by and about the people in the land of Israel and surrounding areas, and takes place from the creation of the world until shortly after the death of Jesus Christ, the Book of Mormon contains the history and God’s dealings with the people who lived in the Americas between approximately 600 BC and 400 AD. The prophets in the Book of Mormon recorded God's dealings with His people, which were compiled by a prophet named Mormon onto gold plates.
