By Emily Belle Freeman, David Butler
You've read the Doctrine and Covenants before, but Emily Belle Freeman and David Butler, hosts of the popular YouTube scripture-study channel Don't Miss This, have created a new approach that will change the way you read your scriptures.
These great teachers, whose love for the scriptures is contagious, explore the significance of one verse from each section of the Doctrine and Covenants, showing you how to dig deep and find personal application of God's word. Each short, devotional-style lesson shares a story, typically beginning with the question that prompted the revelation, a little background about the person the revelation was for, and that person's experience with the revelation. Then the authors relate that experience to us today. Their invitations will lead you to a more meaningful personal study of the Doctrine and Covenants.
Emily Freeman took her first creative writing class in high school and has loved writing ever since. She finds great joy in studying the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Her deep love of the scriptures comes from a desire to find their application in everyday life. She is the author of several books, including EVEN THIS, Getting to the Place Where You Can Trust God With Anything. There is nothing Emily enjoys more for breakfast than a bowl of coconut ice cream, raspberries, and chocolate chips. Other favorites include parades, vacations, firework displays, and going for a long walk with a good friend. Emily and her husband, Greg, live in Lehi, Utah, and are the parents of five children, whom she adores.
David Butler's greatest love is people. He had adopted as a life motto: "Stuff no mattah, people mattah." His favorite people are his wife, Jenny, and their six darling children. Some of his other loves include good food, spontaneous adventures, Christmas morning, and the sea. David cohosts the popular YouTube scripture study channel Don't Miss This with Emily Belle Freeman and is the author of many religious books, including Ites: An Illustrated Guide to the People in the Book of Mormon; The Peter Potential; and Almighty: How the Most Powerful Being in the Universe Is Also Your Loving Father.
