Join Us in Coming Closer to Christ This Easter by Taking This 21-Day Challenge

Mormon Life

Last year, LDS Living launched our own monthly book club where our readers can join us on Instagram to discuss meaningful books and participate in a live Q&A with authors at the end of every month. We've been amazed and humbled by the response we have received as well as the way these books and conversations have been shaping lives.

But now, we're trying something unprecedented. For April, we chose a book that not only offers inspiring thoughts but provides ways to help each of us draw closer to Christ during the three weeks leading up to Easter.

Easter is one of those holidays that can easily sneak up on us—one that can be difficult to make meaningful without making things feel forced. But Emily Belle Freeman's stunning book Closer to Christ, which combines her two best-selling books Becoming His and 21 Days Closer to Christ, helps readers focus on our Savior and invite His influence into the core of their being and life.

For this month, our book club will be focusing on the 21 Days Closer to Christ section of the book, which is an invitation to come closer to Christ through a 21-day journey. Each step of the journey introduces a new concept that will help you come to know and recognize the hand of the Lord in your life. With an emphasis on daily scripture study and personal prayer, each chapter concludes with an assignment designed to help you apply and personalize concepts such as humility, gratitude, and listening to the Spirit. In the rush of everyday life, this unique book provides a refreshing pause and the opportunity to focus our efforts on becoming closer to Christ.

We want to make this journey together and apply these concepts and assignments with you as we develop a deeper relationship with our Savior—together.

For those who are already members of Deseret Book's Bookshelf PLUS, you can read the eBook of 21 Days Closer to Christ for free. You can also find the book Closer to Christ at Deseret Book stores on online. But even if you aren't reading along, we would love for all of you to follow our book club on Instagram and join in celebrating our Savior and the ways we can come closer to Him this sacred season by making Easter more than just a day.
