This is the next installment of my Illustrated Book of Mormon Commentary for Teenagers. You can see the first one here.
Before I really get into the Book of Mormon, itself, I wanted to have a few pages showing the timelines and authors of the Book of Mormon. As I wrote in Tiger’s Book:
“Sometimes when you are reading the Book of Mormon, it can be a little confusing to keep track of what you are reading. There are accounts of things as they happen, flashbacks, and the changing of hands with the records.
Hopefully, this timeline and author chart will help you keep the events and authors of the Book of Mormon straight!”
Several years ago, I did my own “story of the Book of Mormon” project. (You can read about it here.) As a part of this project, I created my own Book of Mormon timeline. I highly suggest this type of project. It really helped me to understand the Book of Mormon.
In any case, here is a copy of the timeline that I created: BoM Timeline (available as a PDF Download).
I also felt like Tiger should understand the authors of the Book of Mormon and the way that the plates were handed down. I found a very handy flowchart of the Book of Mormon Authors online here.
These two pages are chock-full of information. I didn’t have much space to make anything “cute!” No worries, though. I really think that this information will be helpful.
Finally, I included a quote that I really love about the Book of Mormon:
“Would you like to have emblazoned on your soul an undeniable witness that the Savior descended beneath your sins and that there is no sin, no mortal plight outside the merciful reach of His Atonement – that for each of your struggles He has a remedy of superior healing power? Then read the Book of Mormon.” – Tad R. Callister (emphasis added)
Thanks for letting me share this project with you. I am so excited to actually get into the Book of Mormon now. I’m excited to be able to share my testimony with my daughter in a way that I hope she will be receptive to. I’ll share more with you later!
When my oldest daughter turned 12, I made her a special book. (You can read about it here .) – She will be turning 16 in a little over a year, and I’ve decided to start making another book for her. This time, it will be about the Book of Mormon. (In case you’re wondering, I made a book for her when she was 14. I’ll probably post it on here soon).
So, I just started this. I’m using one of my favorite – sketchbooks (although the one I’m using is hardbound rather than wirebound).
Why am I doing this? Is it because I’m crazy? No. I’ve thought a lot about how to teach my children the gospel. I’ve thought about lecturing them – and lectures weren’t particularly helpful in my life. I mean I honestly don’t remember if my parents lectured me. I know that they said stuff to me, but I zoned out very easily as a teenager.
I don’t particularly like lecturing my teens right now, either. It feels boring and pointless. But how do we teach our kids the gospel? How do I teach them the things that I know and understand and what them to know and understand?
In this quest, I’ve been inspired by the words of Nephi:
“And we talk of Christ we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.” – 2 Nephi 25:26, emphasis added.
I feel like writing what I want to teach my children is an effective way (for me) to preach to them without seeming preachy! I can write lectures, make them cute and heartfelt, and instead of zoning out – my kids will treasure these lectures. That’s the idea, anyway. It’s not sneaky. I’m just being as wise as a serpent and as harmless as a dove. 🙂
So – this is a Book about the Book of Mormon. I’ve divided it as follows:
Timeline of the Book of Mormon
Explanation of the Small and Large Plates and their Authors
Words of Mormon
So – pretty straight forward.
On this page, I just wrote that the Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ. I wrote my hope for her – that she will continue to read the Book of Mormon in her life. I also told her about this book that I’m making for her:
“This book is a gift to you from me. It’s kind of a “commentary” on the Book of Mormon. I’ve been inspired by Nephi’s words, ‘And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.’ (2 Nephi 25:26).
I want you to know – not only do I want you to know the Book of Mormon for yourself, but I also want you to know my testimony of it.
I hope that this book will be a blessing to you now and for years to come. Love, Mom.
So – that’s the beginning of this fun ride. I anticipate that it will take me a little over a year to finish this book. It will require a lot of work and effort, but I’m sure that it will be worth it. Maybe you have a child who could use something like this? Try writing your testimonies and lessons you have learned in the Book of Mormon. I’d love to see what you come up with if you do it, too.
I have recently gotten a new calling in my ward*. I’m in the Young Women’s presidency. For those of you who don’t know what that is, the Young Women’s is a group of young women ages 12-18. I have served in the Young Women’s in the past. It is such a fun calling. The youth are so vibrant. They are intelligent, happy, and want to do well.
However, it can be a little daunting to serve with the youth. Fortunately, in the Book of Mormon, we can find a great example of someone who was a steward over the youth: Helaman.
A Little Background Information
Helaman was a general in the Nephite army in the Book of Mormon. Specifically, Helaman commanded a group of 2,000 young men (boys, really). You can read more about the circumstances of this army in Alma chapters 56-58. He was a steward of the youth.
Even though we might not be leading young men into battle, many of the principles that Helaman exemplifies in his stewardship over the youth can be applied in our lives. We will study them today! 🙂
15 Ways Helaman teaches us to Be a Better Steward over the Youth
Helaman knew those he served. He knew their circumstances – See Alma 56:3-6. Helaman knew the circumstances of these young men. He knew that their fathers had buried their weapons of war – with a covenant never to go to battle again. He knew that their families had been converted to the gospel and were true to their faith.
We can also gather that, because they were the sons of those who buried their weapons of war, then some of these boys were most likely fatherless. Helaman knew these boys. If we want to effectively serve our youth, then we need to know them. We need to know their circumstances, their families, their cultures.
Helaman honored their families and supported them – See Alma 56:8. Helaman knew the covenant that these boys’ fathers had made. Because the kingdom was at war, and because their liberty was in jeopardy, the fathers were thinking of taking up arms again to fight and defend their country. However, Helaman insisted that they didn’t break their covenant.
Helaman supported these families, and, as leaders of the youth, we need to do the same thing. We need to be mindful of the families of those whom we serve. These families aren’t here to serve us or “support us” in our calling, we are called to serve and support them.
Helaman loved the boys he served. – See Alma 58:10. Helaman addresses these boys as his sons. He explains that they were worthy to be called sons. What does this mean? I suppose it means that he deeply loves and cares for these young men. He feels responsible for them. This all stems from his love for them.
We need to also love the youth we serve. It may not always be easy, but if we don’t love them, then being a good steward is pretty much impossible.
Helaman protected them. – See Alma 56:39 Helaman took his charge over these youth very seriously and he protected them. Sure, they had signed up for war, but he wanted them to stay as safe as possible and devised strategies where they would be used as a decoy without ever having to fight.
We need to protect our youth. They face a spiritual enemy that wants to destroy them. We need to protect them just as Helaman protected his warriors.
Helaman trusted the boys and he trusted their families. – See Alma 56:46-48. When you read this exchange between Helaman and his sons, it is fairly obvious that he trusts them. Even though they are young and inexperienced, he trusts their testimony and strength.
The young warriors also explained that their mothers knew that God would deliver them, and they do not doubt their mothers.
Helaman reacts with support and relative awe. He doesn’t say, “You haven’t been in a war. You know nothing.” He doesn’t respond, “What does your mother know about this situation.” Instead, he trusts the young men and he trusts their families.
It is so important for us to trust the youth and their families. Of course, the Spirit can help us to discern between right and wrong. But we have to be sure that our own opinions aren’t blocking the Spirit. We can trust that the youth we serve do have testimonies and do desire to serve God. When we trust the youth, they will rise to the occasion just as these 2,000 stripling warriors did.
Helaman followed the Spirit – See Helaman 56:44, 50. I know that I just made the point that Helaman protected his sons; however, of utmost importance is that he followed the Spirit.
The plan was for the 2,000 warriors to be a decoy. However, the Lamanite army stopped marching after them. Helaman thought that they figured out what was going on, and then decided to attack Antipus’s army. But he couldn’t be sure. Maybe they were just waiting so they could trick this small group and then lure them into a trap. In any case, action needed to be taken. The Lamanites were no longer taking the bait. After consideration, Helaman knew that they needed to fight the Lamanites and save the other army. He turns to his young army and says, “Therefore what say ye, my sons, will ye go against them to battle?”
Even though it was Helaman’s desire to keep these boys out of battle, he followed the Spirit – knowing that they needed to fight without knowing what the outcome would be. He trusted in God and followed the Spirit.
Like Helaman, we need to stay close to the Lord and follow His Spirit.
Helaman rejoiced in the victories of his “sons.” – See Alma 56:54-56. After their victory against the Lamanite Army and helping to rescue Antipus’s army, Helaman checked on his sons. Not only did they rejoice in their victory, but Helaman was overjoyed to find that not a single one of these boys had fallen to the earth. They were all alive, and Helaman was happy.
When we are stewards over the youth, we, too, need to rejoice in the victories of our youth. This can happen in a variety of ways. I think that, as we come to love the youth we serve, rejoicing in their victories comes very naturally because we love them.
Helaman allowed his young warriors to be exposed to danger. – See Alma 57:18-19, 23. This can be so difficult. I think that it would have been difficult for Helaman, too. He spent so much time protecting his sons from battle, he still had to allow them to be exposed to the dangers of war. They were, after all, soldiers.
After one especially difficult battle, there were many people who had fallen and died. Thankfully, again, all of the stripling warriors were spared of death, but about 200 of them had fainted with a loss of blood. Helaman needed to allow his sons to be exposed to this danger in order for them to do what they were sent there to do.
Likewise, we leaders must be wise, and we must allow our youth to be exposed to danger. This doesn’t mean that we’ll take them to a place we know to be evil. It just means that we need to accept our circumstances, our purpose, and that our youth are strong just like these young warriors were.
Helaman cared for his sons and saw that they were healed. See Alma 57:24-25. Immediately after a battle, Helaman ordered that the wounded should be brought out from among the dead, and that their wounds should be dressed. He found the 200 or so of his sons that had fallen from a loss of blood. Helaman made sure that they received the medical attention they needed.
Just as Helaman saw to their healing, we need to see that the spiritual and emotional wounds of those whom we serve (or perhaps the physical, you never know, I guess!) are also healed. We can do this by investigating the scene and doing what is necessary to “dress” the wounds that are suffered by those whom we serve.
Helaman was a spiritual example of faith. See – Alma 58:10-12. There was a point, after these battles, where Helaman and those he commanded were waiting for provisions and supplies. But nothing. They waited. Nothing.
Instead of Helaman murmuring against his superiors, he simply led his group of stripling warriors in prayer. Helaman was an example of faith and loyalty. That being said, he still brought up the issue to his superiors. It was appropriate for him to report what was happening with them. In fact, had Helaman not reported this shortage, then they wouldn’t have discovered the insurrection that happened in Zarahemla.
Helaman handled this difficult situation with poise. He was a spiritual leader to his youth without being a doormat.
We can do the same. We need to be spiritual leaders to our youth. They need to hear us pray. And we ned to support those who are over us. Even if things aren’t going well, we don’t need to murmur. We can responsibly report, and find the source of the problem in a humble but effective way.
Helaman was wise. He only did that which was absolutely needful. See Alma 58:16-28. Helaman was a commander in a war. He understood the need to be efficient and wise. He didn’t send his troops out without thinking about their strategy. He didn’t have them do anything more than that which was absolutely needful. What’s the purpose? How effective would a tired and overworked army be?!?
Because Helaman was a good steward, he wisely chose to do only that which he, and his young army, needed to do. Because of his wisdom, he was able to overtake an enemy city purely by strategy – without any blood shed (on either side).
We need to be wise, too. Often, I think that it is the American (and Mormon) way to just do everything we can. We want to start our race sprinting. We overcommit and then find ourselves tired or even sick. This is not what we, wise stewards of the youth, can afford to do. We need to do only the needful thing. Sometimes, this might mean saying no – even to good things. We don’t want to waste precious time and effort on something, even if it seems like good. We must be wise enough to prioritize. We are at a war, of sorts, and we have to be good stewards over these youth!
Helaman put his trust in God. – See Alma 58:33. Despite the troubles that Helaman’s army was facing (in not receiving needed provisions from his own country), he still put His trust in God. He didn’t fret. He didn’t worry. He trusted God.
It could be easy to fret and worry – Helaman was responsible for 2,000 young men. Wouldn’t his responsibility justify worry and perhaps even a little bit of “ark steadying?”
But Helaman simply trusted God.
As stewards of youth, we also need to trust God. Yes, this world we live in can be dangerous. It can be easy to think that we need to go above and beyond to protect this group of children we have stewardship over. However, I’ve found that worry usually leads to a frantic pace or frenzied stress. And a frantic pace/frenzied stress is not trusting in God! It’s a waste of our energy, and it will often yield very poor results.
Helaman was aware and thoughtful of his circumstances. He questioned without murmuring. See Alma 58:35-36. I have alluded to this point already, but it is worth an extra mention. While at war, Helaman and his forces were not receiving reinforcements. Instead of saying, “Oh well, I’ll just wait,” he still acted. He wrote a letter to his superior and informed him of the situation.
Now, it’s important to note that we can question and we can inform – without laying blame on someone. This is exactly what Helaman did. He wasn’t a doormat, neither was he bullish. He was simply direct and honest.
Because of Helaman’s honesty, Captain Moroni was made aware of a bad situation happening in the country – a coup. The armies weren’t receiving any help because their own country was under siege. Had Helaman not alerted Moroni of his problems, then they wouldn’t have been able to learn about this problem.
As wise stewards, when we run into issues “from above,” then we will not be afraid to open an honest dialogue with our “superior.” We also won’t murmur or complain. Instead, when we are fair and measured like Helaman, we’ll be able to make real progress and, perhaps, even discover another issue that truly needs attention.
Helaman was blessed by God in his stewardship. – See Alma 58:39-40. Because of Helaman’s faithful service, he was blessed in his stewardship. Throughout his tenure as the general of this small army, throughout all of their battles and other hardships, not a single soul was lost.
I can’t say that if we are faithful, then none of the souls we have stewardship will be lost. Everyone has their own choice to make. That being said, if we faithfully serve, then the Lord will bless us in our stewardship. He will bless us with peace. And we will be able to have a positive impact on the young ones we work with – no matter what they choose to do with their lives.
Helaman was always focused on the Savior. See Alma 58:40-41. I think that this is probably the most important point. Always, at the center of his motives and service, was the redemption and Atonement of Christ. Helaman was empowered by Christ and sought to protect and stand fast in the liberty that had made him free. Because of Helaman’s focus on Christ, he was able to accomplish the above 14 points. This is truly what made him an exceptional leader.
If we want to be the best leaders we can be, then we will focus on Christ, as well. What does this mean? I think that it means we will teach the principles of the gospel.
But it also means so much more than that.
I think that it also means we teach the youth that the focus needs to be on the Savior. I think that it means we act as a conduit – or a pathway for their own relationship with the Savior. It can be tempting to want to be the person who is so cool and fun – it is easy to try to use our own charm, personality, money, gifts to convince the youth we serve to love us. But that’s not the point. We need to use our own experience with Christ to convince the youth to also love Him. It’s not about us at all, really…and Helaman knew that.
What stands out to you about Helaman’s leadership over the youth? Do you serve young men or women? What do you do to be a better steward?
Well, this is a little late, but it’s finally here!!!
Introducing a new Scripture Study guide, program, series…whatever you want to call it. This scripture study program is divided into 8 parts. You can complete them at your own pace.
Even though I’m not serving in the Youth program anymore, Tiger is a young woman. I wanted to create another scripture study series that would help me to understand more about the youth theme for the year so that I could reinforce it in the home.
The scripture study program is broken up in the following assignments/categories:
Introduction to the Series – This includes a quick overview of the scripture and we study supplemental material from the General Young Men’s and General Young Women’s presidencies.
The Invitation Part One – This assignment will explore the first part of Moroni’s invitation – to come unto Christ.
The Invitation Part Two – This assignment will explore the second part of Moroni’s invitation – to be perfected in Him.
The Invitation Part Three – This assignment will explore the third part of Moroni’s invitation – to deny yourselves of all ungodliness.
Logic Statement – If… – In this assignment, we will study what it means to deny yourself of all ungodliness, and why that’s important.
Logic Statement – If… – In this assignment, we will continue studying the “if” portion of Moroni’s logic statement – to love God will all your might, mind, and strength.
Logic Statement – Then… – In this assignment, we will study the next portion of the Logic statement – which is receiving grace.
Second Logic Statement–If, then – Moroni concludes this verse with a second logic statement. This assignment will explore an practical example of this logic statement. We will see how this whole scripture comes together in this assignment.
You can download this entire scripture study series here:
By the way – this would be a great value project!!!
So, download the scripture study program and complete it. Let me know how it goes. Also, if you notice any mistakes, please email me or leave a comment below!!! Also, be on the lookout. I hope to make this scripture study series into an App soon. 🙂
I’ve always liked the “Six Be’s” not only is it ready-made for cuteness (bees!…and Tiger is a Beehive!), but the teachings are so good. As I was working on this layout, it dawned on me how long ago that President Hinkley gave the Six Be’s talk so long ago…13 years ago, to be exact. Can you believe it? Me, neither.
As I was making this book, I kept thinking of Alma and Lehi–who speak to their sons before their death. Now, I’m not predicting that I’ll die anytime soon, but I thought about the idea of a parent teaching a child, and more specifically a parent bearing testimony to a child. I wanted to include my own testimony to Tiger–written. It is important to me that she knows I know.
Just a few more words before I’m done! And a cute picture, of course!!!
And that’s it!
I did finish this book to Tiger just in time for her birthday. She was so excited about it. She loves it. She has been reading from it a lot. And, last Sunday, she taught a lesson on Gratitude and actually used it in her class! Pretty exciting. I’m very happy with it.
Now…to add to the craziness, I’m thinking of making another book–for her 13th birthday. It won’t be as involved as this 12 year old book, but I really think I’d like to do something nice. I’ll be brainstorming a bit first, though.
Have you made a book? On another note, perhaps you’re not really an “artsy” person. If you were to find a book like this–handwritten, pretty, etc. With inspiration about the Values, and Standards from For the Strength of Youth–at Deseret Book or a similar store, would it be something you would buy? I’m thinking of sending them some kind of pitch…I’d love to hear your feedback!
The next section of the book I made for Tiger had to do with Integrity. Again, I grouped a few of the concepts taught in For the Strength of the Youth in this section.
On these pages, I wrote about the power of language. Language is one of those things that can either be really great or pretty terrible–it depends on how we use it. I also reminded Tiger that we can’t control what others say, and we can provide a good example to others. I think that we live in a time when people don’t seem to care about what they say. We hear people curse, gossip, say the Lord’s name in vain, make threats, and joke about sacred things. Often, we brush it off, it’s just a joke, or they are only words, but we must remember what Paul teaches “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but only that which is good…and edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” (Ephesians 4:29)
I actually have three layouts that deal with Integrity. For this first one, I drew a picture that was based (heavily) on this illustration. (Note: Usually I like to be more creative and copy less, but I found myself pressed for time with this project, and I wanted to get it done before Tiger turned 12…so I kind of copied stuff…oh well…better than nothing!). The quote that I included is from Elder Bednar. I like it!
I was having trouble coming up with a good layout for Integrity. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to say. As I thought about it, I was led to the first Value Experience for Integrity. I decided to make a little bit of a “worksheet” with questions and prompts for Tiger. When she finishes this, she will have finished the first value experience for Integrity!
I know that this isn’t a quote from a GA, but I don’t care because I love it! This is just one of the most succinct explanations of integrity, and I felt like it would help Tiger to really understand what integrity is–and how it is different than honesty. So…thank you Oprah for some wise words!
First, can I just say how much I love that the value Virtue was added, and that the Value Project is to read the Book of Mormon? I can’t believe that we weren’t reading the Book of Mormon as a requirement for Personal Progress in the first place!!!
This layout explaining Virtue is a quote from Elain S. Dalton. Don’t you love her???!!! Also, the picture I drew was heavily inspired by something I saw online, but I can’t find the page.
Even though Tiger shouldn’t be dating until she’s 16, I felt like I should absolutely include some thoughts on this subject in the book. I took this chance to let her know that it is okay and appropriate for her to start thinking about boys, but that she will have time to have experiences with boys, dating, and other things that seem like fun in the future. I advised her to listen to what the prophets have taught. This is a time for her to have fun, discover herself, and prepare for the future–rather than get wrapped up in a relationship with a boy.
The layout for Modesty is actually four pages (two layouts). I feel that modesty is incredibly important–especially at the age of 12. I know that the decisions she makes now will shape the choices she makes in a few years. I want her to be mindful of the power of modesty. A while ago, I wrote a talk and blog post on the subject. Up to this point, Tiger has made it a commitment to be modest. I hope that she will always choose this.
Music and Dancing 1
I love music, and honestly the consumption of music and other media can be difficult for me to choose the right. I haven’t always done so. But I’ve changed and have become much pickier about what I consume, and I can see how it has blessed my life to do so. I encourage Tiger to also be very careful about her music and dancing. They really do impact us.
Music and Dancing 2
One of my favorite scriptures.
In this layout, I’m much more open about keeping the law of chastity and how remaining pure will bless Tiger’s life. The idea of purity is scoffed at. It is considered “old fashioned.” There are many feminists who decry purity. The thing is, they are wrong. Purity is of utmost importance. It will help us to be happy. It will help us have the Spirit. I know that we need to encourage our daughters (and sons) to be pure.
Well, there you go. This covers Integrity and Virtue. I will have one more post with the final pages of the journal. Thanks for checking it out! Have you been working on something like this? If so, let me know! Any ideas?! 🙂
I have formatted this book to kind of follow the values from the Young Woman’s theme, so this section is all about knowledge. Included in this section are some of the standards included in For the Strength of the Youth that seem to be associated with the value knowledge. I hope you enjoy this little look!
So, this page is all about knowledge–gaining knowledge and why it is important. I have always valued the chance I had to receive an education, and I wanted Tiger to understand that everything in the world around her will give her knowledge – not only what she does in school.
Tiger is a very curious individual, and I encouraged her to continue to satisfy her curiosities in a smart way. This time in her life is especially geared for obtaining knowledge. Though she will have chances to be more social, and it is fun, I encouraged her to remember to keep those interests balanced with gaining knowledge.
This page is closely related to knowledge, but I wanted this to focus more on her goals in life and how an education will help her to obtain those goals. I understand that a 12 year old girl might not know exactly what she wants to do in life, but I wanted her also to understand that if she wants to keep her future options open, then she needs to make wise decisions now. Receiving an education is a big part of this.
Word of Wisdom 1
This little nursery rhyme is a nice little reminder on how to live a happy healthy life:
The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If you are only willing
Your mind they’ll ease
Your heart they’ll mend
And charge you not a shilling.
Cute and true!
Word of Wisdom 2
In this layout, I wanted to make sure that there is more to the Word of Wisdom than “don’t drink, don’t smoke.” Right now, I know that those aren’t temptations to Tiger. That might change, and perhaps there will be a time when she needs more guidance about the temptation to break the word of wisdom, but for now, I wanted to help her concentrate on how everything we put into our mouths effects us. This is often hard for me to remember.
I also wanted her to know that when we treat our bodies well, then we are also treating our spirits well. There is a connection between out bodies and spirits. If we smoke, drink, eat too much junk food, don’t get enough rest or exercise, then not only does our body suffer, but our Spirit also suffers.
I’m hoping that if she understands “why” the Word of Wisdom is so beneficial, then she will be more apt to keep it in the future.
Finally, I wrote about receiving revelation. Here, I wrote/illustrated the pattern to receiving revelation- as taught in the Doctrine Covenants 9:7-9. Pattern for receiving revelation
Study – instead of expecting the Lord to solve all of our problems, we need to be proactive. We study our problem and the solution; we study the choice that we are trying to make; we study what it is we are going to learn; then we come up with our own solution that makes sense to us based on the information that we have gathered. This doesn’t have to take days or weeks. It may only take a few minutes. What matters most is that we study it out in our minds.
Ask – After studying out the issue in our minds, then we are ready to counsel with the Lord. We can ask Him if our decision is right. We ask through prayer, fasting, and through seeking answers in the scriptures or at the temple. While the Lord wants us to be think more independently, He still wants to be a part of the process.
Recognize the Lord’s Answer – After doing this, then the Lord will answer us in one of the following ways:
No – if it is wrong, then we will not feel right about the solution we have prayed about. We won’t feel confident or empowered. We will feel confused or blank. We have to learn how the Spirit speaks to us.
Yes – If the solution is good, and God endorses it, then we will feel happy. The scriptures say that our “bosoms will burn,” and I’m not exactly sure what it means, but I know that I feel happy, enlightened, hopeful, and as if everything is completely clear.
Understanding the pattern to receiving revelation is very helpful. Soon enough, Tiger will be making big decisions in her life. This pattern can help answer any of the questions she will have.
Well, that’s it for the knowledge section. I’ve actually finished the book, Tiger is 12 and has it, but I wanted to make sure that I updated it here, too. 🙂 Next up is Choice and Accountability. Check back later to see it!
