My friend Camille over at Chicken Scratch N Sniff has put together a beautiful study guide for Preach My Gospel. When she told me about it, I was so excited to share it with you.
As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we have this amazing thing, called the gospel. We love it and we want to share it with all of our friends, family and neighbors. I once had a friend who said it this way, "If I had found a lipstick that I just loved, I would want to tell all of my friends about it. It is the same way with the gospel." Sometimes, sharing the gospel can be a scary thing. Why, because we worry about what others might think, how it will effect our relationships, and we are afraid we won't know what to say.
Put your fears aside! Here are some tips...
First off, prepare yourself. You can do this by living the commandments each day, drawing closer to your Heavenly Father and recognizing how the Holy Ghost speaks to you.
Second, study! Study the scriptures, ponder over what you have read. This Preach My Gospel ebook Study Journal can help you prepare and understand how to be a better member missionary. It would also make a great gift for anyone preparing to serve a full-time mission. How fun would it be to study alongside you missionary! As you can see from the pictures above it is beautifully designed with over 140 pages. It also comes with over 40 printable quote posters.
Third, if you are concerned about what others might think, just know that you sharing the gospel will bring blessings into their lives as well as your own. If you are sincere as you share the gospel, it most likely will not effect your relationship in an adverse way. If they know that you are going to be friends no matter what, that you are just sharing something that is important to you, why would they have cause to not continue your friendship?
Lastly, if you are prepared and living a righteous life, the Holy Ghost will be with you. He will help you know when the timing is right and He will help you know the right things to say.
The thing is that this is the Lord's work and it is hastening! He will provide the way, for the gospel to be shared. It is our job to be prepared so we can help Him in His work.
