For the past few months I've had an idea I've been mulling around in my head. I'm a HUGE fan of Bible studies/devotionals and have found myself constantly adding these devotionals into my regular scripture study. I love how they are so easy to use, bring the spirit into my life, and keep my mind in God's word a little more often.
However, I found this hole in my studies. I couldn't find really any scripture studies or devotionals available for free online that reflected the additional scripture of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; The Book of Mormon and Doctrine & Covenants. As a member of the LDS church, these other books are scripture to me, as are the words of living prophets and apostles that we hear during semi-annual General Conference.
So as I've mulled the idea around, I'm excited to officially launch MONDAY IN THE WORD a weekly LDS based scripture devotional this coming Monday 11/30! Every Monday you will find a new study on my blog. There will be scriptures from all the Standard Works (Old & New Testament, Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants) as well as comments from General Conference talks.
I find studying a specific theme over a period of time helps me ponder a little more on the subject, and my intent is to once a week give you a consistent theme to study. Each study will range from 3-12 weeks and then a new study will begin. The studies will encourage you to spend time in stillness, to read from the scriptures, to look up talks, to journal, and there will even occasionally be challenges to help us stretch ourselves spiritually.
I hope you're as excited as I am about this! The first study will officially be live on my blog early Monday morning and I think you are going to love the theme of the first study.
If you're excited about this, please feel free to share your thoughts on social media using the hashtag #MondayInTheWord and check back in next Monday to participate in Week One!
