Did you know that three years ago I became a blogger, because I wanted to share my faith with my friends online?
Since then, I have blogged extensively about my daily pursuit to follow Christ and to teach my children about The Family Proclamation. As a result, my understanding of His Atonement and of this vital piece of revelation has grown exponentially. And my ability to testify of them both has grown in ways that I did not anticipate.
Now I am ready to turn my attention to testifying to my friends about the importance of The Book of Mormon in my life, and I hope that the results will be the same.
That is why I was so excited to learn that the upcoming October 2011 Ensign will be a special edition dedicated entirely to The Book of Mormon: where it came from, what it teaches, why it is a sacred book of scripture and the keystone of our religion.
This special Ensign is packed with such wonderful testimony, study tools, and easy-to understand explanations of why we study the Book of Mormon hand-in-hand with the Holy Bible.
In honor of the release of this amazing resource, I am asking all of you to join me for a
"Book of Mormon Forum".
During the month of October, I will:
- study and blog about The Book of Mormon extensively
- answer questions about The Book of Mormon that I have received from my friends
- feature interviews/guest posts and your testimonies.
I want as many of YOU to join me in this effort by blogging about the Book of Mormon as much as possible during the month of October and linking to the new Ensign, which will become available online on September 20th.
If you are interested in participating in this event IN ANY WAY, please email me at jocelyn dot christensen at gmail dot com. Please put "Book of Mormon Forum" in the subject line, and please include your blog address if you have one.
This invitation is open to anyone who reads my blog, anyone who blogs anywhere on the planet...and anyone who just wants to learn more about The Book of Mormon.
During the week following our Family Proclamation extravaganza, I will begin putting up links to every blog who participates, and asking you to help spread the word...more details about that to come. So stay tuned...Just something to start thinking about as we are Celebrating Family next month...The Book of Mormon Forum is coming!
