Do the names Emily Belle Freeman and David Butler sound familiar? What about “Don’t Miss This”? If you’ve followed along with Emily and David, you’ll be excited to see the two teachers featured on the cover of our November/December 2020 issue. But if you haven’t heard of this dynamic teaching duo, we invite you to join us in learning about their popular Come, Follow Me-based YouTube channel, “Don’t Miss This.” With new insight into how they produce the popular videos that have resonated with those young and old who are studying the gospel from home as well as a sneak peek of their plans for the Doctrine and Covenants study next year, we’re sure you’ll be just as charmed with their gospel knowledge and love for their viewers as we are.
If you’ve been reading “The Restoration of the Fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ: A Bicentennial Proclamation to the World” as part of your gospel study this year, you’ll also enjoy a fascinating new article by Church History Department archivist Brandon J. Metcalf on how the meaning and purpose of proclamations has changed in the Church over time.
You can also dive into a fun study of Hebrew words in the Book of Mormon, follow a seven-day nativity advent, or gain a new appreciation for the Las Vegas Nevada Temple by reading some of the miracles behind its construction.
Plus, catch up on the All In and This Is the Gospel podcasts with specially selected excerpts, learn more about scholar, author, and artist Anthony Sweat, find out what’s new at Deseret Book this Christmas, and more! Regardless of which articles you gravitate toward, we hope this issue will help you in your efforts to remember the reason for this holiday season. Let us be the first to wish you a very Merry Christmas!
