Let’s get right to it. Yes, I will totally send you a free Book of Mormon AND an 8×10 watercolor print of Christ from Castel Arts. There’s absolutely no strings attached. Nobody is going to come knocking at your door. You will not be on the ‘Mormon’ radar. You’re totally safe, my friend. I have sent out over a thousand Books of Mormon all over the world and have been doing it for years. There’s no funny business here. I don’t share your address, name, email, etc. It seems to be a common concern from those who email me, so I wanted to get that out of the way right now. Are we good??
A couple things about ordering your free Book of Mormon & Christ print …
Pretty-Please DO NOT Order If …
If you are currently an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I am going to KINDLY ask that you NOT email me asking for a package. I use my personal time and money to put together and ship these packages, so it gets kinda pricey and time-consuming. (Luckily, I have some amazing friends that help out when things get overwhelming.)
If you are currently a member of The Church and would like a physical copy of the book, your Bishop has them available. As for the beautiful watercolor print, I will direct you to the Etsy shop, Castel Arts, where you can purchase, download, and print it. Oh, and if you wouldn’t mind sharing this post, that would be wonderful. Thank you for understanding!!!
If You’re Ready to Order Right Now …
There’s a few things (all below) that I would love to share with you. But, if you need to come back to it later and get this party started, here’s what you need to do.
Email me at [email protected] with your NAME and MAILING ADDRESS. In the subject line, put something like ‘Book of Mormon Request.’ That’s it. (I will ship anywhere in the world.)
* Remember, please DON’T order if you are currently an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Okay, also … if you want to, I would love for you to share with me, in your email, what prompted you to send your request. It’s always fun to get some insight on where my readers are coming up and feel a little personal connection when I send the free Book of Mormon and Christ print out. But, totally optional. It’s just a little thing that is rewarding for me when it happens.
- I ship the packages out at the end of each month. I know it can be a bummer to wait a month (if you order at the beginning), but it makes this project a little more doable, when I can do a bunch at once. However, see below on where to go to learn more while you’re waiting for your package to arrive.
Why Am I Doing This??
Well, I love Christ. I love the scriptures, especially The Book of Mormon. And, I love my family. The world can be so chaotic and disheartening. But, there are a few things that incite true joy, keep me calm, give me direction, bring me hope, and comfort me… and it is THOSE things, in THAT order: Christ, His Word, and my family. I have learned, just from being alive in this world, that those feelings seem to be in short supply. People don’t always know where to find them and are often lonely, angry, confused, bitter, defeated, guilt-ridden, scared, etc. It doesn’t need to be that way. The knowledge of where to find peace and joy has been so valuable to me and my family. I have to share it!
If you are looking for those wonderful feelings, if you want to step away from the negativity, receive some guidance, and feel some peace, let me tell you something… every step you take TOWARDS Christ will bring light to your life. It’s not some hokey made-up nonsense, like some people would have you believe… it’s absolutely true. And, why not test it out for yourself? Like, sincerely test it out… coming at it with an open heart and a true desire to know, and to have what I claim is available. Try it and see how you feel inside. It’s worth any effort. I promise.
There’s a scripture in The Book of Mormon, in the book of Moroni that reads…
“And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.” Moroni 10:4-5
The super cool thing is you don’t need to blindly believe. I don’t want to convince you. You can know for yourself because God believes you should know for yourself. He knows that you need your own personal witness of what’s true, to truly focus your life correctly. He wants that for you and the truths you need will come from His Spirit. The confirmation won’t come from me, from your neighbor, Google, your pastor/priest/church leader, parent, anyone… it will come from The Spirit, specifically to you. I think that’s a pretty awesome gift from God.
Above, I mentioned taking steps towards Christ. This is a one-step-at-a-time kind of thing and every step counts. Taking steps can be a variety of things: saying a prayer, reading your scriptures, attending church, serving others, and so on. It can even be as simple as sending me an email asking for this free package and desiring to learn more. That’s a step, because The Book of Mormon testifies of Christ over and over and over again! And, when you receive it, take another step and crack it open. Heck, maybe take a double-step and pray beforehand to be guided, while you read, to know whether what you are reading is of God or not. EVERY STEP YOU TAKE TOWARDS CHRIST WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE… a wonderful difference.
Anyway, THAT is why I’m doing this. I want you to have the ultimate joy and peace inside that you crave. When you request your package, I’ll be sure to include some of my more personal thoughts and experience, typed up, about why this is important to me. But for now, I’m going to refer you to this post about the Mormon religion: 10 Reasons I Love Being a Mormon (member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I feel like that will give you a little more insight.
A Super Short Introduction …
I’m Mariel. I’ve been running this blog for nearly 10 years. It started out as a blog all about ideas for women, but as my family grew and my mind was focusing more on ‘family,’ I decided to change the focus of the blog to exactly that… FAMILY. ‘Or so she says…’ is all about family ideas and since my religion is heavily family-focused, it only makes sense to share this with you today. You can also find me here: Instagram // Pinterest // Facebook // Newsletter
These are my favorite people …
We love spending time together!
The Book of Mormon Is What, Exactly??
The first video is a simple explanation of The Book of Mormon.
The second video is one of my very favorite testimonies of The Book of Mormon, shared by Elder Holland, an apostle of The Lord. In his video, he will be referencing the murder of The Prophet, Joseph Smith, who was called to translate the ancient scripture plates so that we could read them today (The Book of Mormon.) By denying what he knew to be true, he could have saved his life. He could have save the lives of those he loved and stopped the persecution of his family, whom he loved so much, and all of those who believed in his role. His testimony was sealed by his death.
“So it was with me. I had actually seen a light, and in the midst of that light I saw two Personages, and they did in reality speak to me; and though I was hated and persecuted for saying that I had seen a vision, yet it was true; and while they were persecuting me, reviling me, and speaking all manner of evil against me falsely for so saying, I was led to say in my heart: Why persecute me for telling the truth? I have actually seen a vision; and who am I that I can withstand God, or why does the world think to make me deny what I have actually seen? For I had seen a vision; I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it, neither dared I do it; at least I knew that by so doing I would offend God, and come under condemnation.” – Joseph Smith
Let’s Talk About This Christ Watercolor Print…
One thing that you’ll find with The Book of Mormon is that it constantly testifies of Christ. He is the focus of the book and as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I am asked to focus my life on Him, to learn of Him and try to live like He lived. Having pictures of Christ in my home is one of the things I like to do to help me remember my focus. It just seemed fitting to pair a beautiful image of Christ with your free Book of Mormon, so you could do the same. When I started searching for the most perfect picture to give you, I stopped immediately when I saw this one by Castel Arts. This was the one! I was so excited and grateful that they were willing to allow me to print and ship it to you, without having to pay for the download each time I mail one. That’s such a huge gift!
Where to Learn More While Waiting for Your Package…
There are lots of places you can find information about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints online. However, a lot of it conflicting. Who is telling the truth?? My suggestion is go to the source… go straight to the websites of The Church. It’s straight-forward and uninfluenced by opinions or experiences, as people are not perfect, inside or outside of the church. Nearly every question you have can be found addressed on one of them: Come Unto Christ (awesome site, geared towards those wanting to learn more) and The Church of Jesus Christ. (a site, mostly used by members of The Church, but has so many great things to learn from!)
How Do I Order Again??
If you’re not currently an active member of the church, you qualify to order. So if that’s the case, just send me an email – [email protected] with ‘Book of Mormon Order’ (or something similar) in the subject. Within the email, be sure to give me your name and address. And, if you’re willing, I would love to hear about what led you to place your order (that’s optional, but I do love to read your emails!)
Please Help Spread the Word About This Offer…
You can pin this image, or the one at the top of the post. Or, share the post on any social media outlet you use. Help me offer something good online, to help combat the negative! Anything would be appreciated! 🙂
A couple last things…
- This offer doesn’t expire, unless I say otherwise. So, for now… go ahead an email me to get your free Book of Mormon (instructions shared at the beginning of the post.)
- Regarding the watercolor print… I’m shipping these packages with my personal money or donations from friends. I did purchase some cardboard sheets and ‘Do Not Bend’ stickers to help protect the art print, but I can’t promise that the post office won’t bend my package or that the print will be 100% flawless when it arrives to you. If it’s not in exactly the shape you want, when it arrives, I’m super sorry. I won’t be able to ship another one. Let’s hope for the best! I would imagine that everything will be fine though.
- Comments are turned off on all of my spiritual related posts. I’m about kindness and positivity and I want my readers having a good experience while they’re here. Turning off comments helps ensure that is the case.
