March LDS Living Book Club: Join Emily Belle Freeman and David Butler for a month of Easter insights


When you look back at scripture, it rarely feels unexpected. We know how it all turns out. But imagine if you were the people living it—if you didn't know He was coming back. If you were Mary and Martha after Lazarus dies, you would have thought He came too late. If you were Peter, you would have been appalled that the Master would lower Himself into your mess to wash your feet. If you stood at the foot of the cross and heard it was finished, you would have believed it was.

In their new book, The Unexpected Delivererpopular Don't Miss This hosts Emily Belle Freeman and David Butler teach us to find and look for the hope of the Savior in unexpected seasons and places. And we are so excited to dig in and learn from these master teachers for the month of March!
