Part II: Promise (52 min)

We are all told that the Book of Mormon was written for our day and to liken the scriptures to ourselves. But to see that the Book of Mormon is literally a blueprint for today was mind blowing! The parallels were staring me in the face for years. I simply lacked the ability to bring all of them into focus. This DVD does just that! You will not view the Book of Mormon the same again! Knowing it is literally a blue print has renewed my appreciation for this sacred scripture and deepened my gratitude for a loving Heavenly Father who wouldn't send his precious children to earth without help and guidance--which is precisely what the scriptures are meant to be. We simply must have the willingness to open them, read them, and learn from them! He is providing us with the tools necessary to successfully complete our journey here on earth, are we willing to use them?
This gives and unique perspective when studying The Book of Mormon. I loved seeing the parallels between The Book of Mormon and our own lives. It truly helps apply the principles of The Book of Mormon into my scripture study.
My 9 and 13 year old sons joined me shortly after I started this DVD, and we were all intrigued. As we watched, I had to hit the pause button several times as they asked questions and wanted to discuss what we were learning. It gave us greater appreciation for the blessings of freedom and accountability that we have in America. Our family is even more motivated to continually study the Book of Mormon so that we can better understand what we must do to be a covenant keeping people. We appreciate the excellent research and work that was done to produce this DVD!
