A recent articlefrom Church History by Brian Passantino and the Consultation Services team discusses an interesting change made to the Book of Mormon—the introduction of the subtitle “Another Testament of Jesus Christ.” Added in 1982, Church leaders explained that the subtitle helps clarify misconceptions. “The Book of Mormon has been misunderstood,” President Boyd K. Packer stated. “With the subtitle, it takes its place where it should be—beside the Old Testament and the New Testament.”

We did it! We made it through the entire Book of Mormon for this year’s Come, Follow Me study. To celebrate, we asked some of our study group guests and listeners to share their ultimate takeaways. So grab your headphones and let’s spend this Christmas reflecting on what we learned this year from the Book of Mormon.
This is the time of year we all think about gifts, whether it’s the gifts we’ve been given or the gifts we would like to receive. But what if we could all receive a gift that didn’t come with a price tag? And not just one gift, but as many gifts as we asked for? In this week’s lesson, we’ll dig into Moroni 10 to study spiritual gifts and how we can discover what ours might be and how to cultivate more.
Faith, hope, and charity. Many have heard these three words, but why are they so often used together? And what is it about having faith, hope, and charity that is so powerful? As one of his last lessons to us, Moroni beautifully answers these questions and teaches us how vital these three little words are to our salvation. So grab your scriptures, and let’s dig into Moroni 7–9 to study one of Moroni’s last lessons for us in the latter days.
“Wondering for the safety of his life.” This is how the book of Moroni begins. It’s difficult to even imagine the loneliness and sorrow Moroni must have felt as he watched all of his family and friends perish. Though he didn't think he would live long enough to write them, Moroni's words in Moroni 1–6 are vital to us as members. So grab your scriptures and let’s dig into what Moroni has to teach us.
Do you have a favorite, go-to scripture for when things get tough? Maybe it’s just a line or a verse that seems to bring you peace no matter what? In this week’s lesson, we’ll be studying Ether 12–15, which are arguably the least peaceful narratives in the Book of Mormon. But hidden in these sad tales of bloodshed and chaos could be verses that brought Joseph Smith’s brother Hyrum peace during his final days and may bring peace to our lives as well.
