I was recently released from my calling as social media director for our local congregation. My calling included not only helping run the social media accounts, but creating the daily Book of Mormon reading content. I posted a little bit about it here. I was a great experience for me to hear/read and publish the testimonies shared. How I love the word of God.
When I made the graphics I had thought about printing them off and making a flip chart to have here at home, but life got away from me and I never did anything with the images. Rather than have them sit on my computer I thought I would offer them here if anyone would like to use them in your homes or congregations. The copyright is for our religious website: www.readingscriptures.org, but if you find any mistakes please let me know so I can change the files. The files are zipped jpgs.
The final project I was asked to do was great a bookmark with all the daily reading included. I will admit that I thought it was an impossible task as there is so much information and to make it readable I didn't know how it would fit. But like many other times in my life the Lord showed me that the impossible can be done with a little faith. I was sitting in the car waiting to pick up Loaf from school lamenting and wresting over this request and how it could be done. In the quiet of the car the Spirit whispered and solved all my questions.
The resulting tri-fold bookmark contains everything requested in the size desired. It was another example of God's mercy to me and how He can accomplish anything. I keep thinking of these two verses:
"And after the angel had departed, Laman and Lemuel again began to murmur, saying: How is it possible that the Lord will deliver Laban into our hands? Behold, he is a mighty man, and he can command fifty, yea, even he can slay fifty; then why not us?
And it came to pass that I spake unto my brethren, saying: Let us go up again unto Jerusalem, and let us be faithful in keeping the commandments of the Lord; for behold he is mightier than all the earth, then why not mightier than Laban and his fifty, yea, or even than his tens of thousands?" (1 Nephi 3:31 and 4:1)
I forget from day to day the mighty miracles that I have seen from the Lord. This was such a small thing in comparison, but a great reminder that the Lord is in the details and He cares about us and our simple struggles.
I am enclosing both a jpg file and a pdf. The bookmark is double sided with a portion on the bottom that will need to be cut off to fit in a standard size scripture.
