What on earth must I be thinking... is it possible for LDS Girls to actually understand the Book of Isaiah from the Old Testament?
Isaiah is a pretty important guy really... in the Book of Mormon the prophet Nephi refers to him a lot. He even asks his brother Jacob to preach to the people from the words of Isaiah, asking them to "liken them unto themselves".
Jacob said, "And now, behold, I would speak unto you concerning things which are, and which are to come; wherefore, I will read you the words of Isaiah. And they are the words which my brother has desired that I should speak unto you. And I speak unto you for your sakes, that ye may learn and glorify the name of your God. And now, the words which I shall read are they which Isaiah spake concerning all the house of Israel; wherefore, they may be likened unto you, for ye are of the house of Israel. And there are many things which have been spoken by Isaiah which may be likened unto you, because ye are of the house of Israel."
You might not have recognized that passage because it is from 2Nephi...the part everyone skips... the Isaiah chapters. lol
But...guess what.... I found this really cool book on-line called Isaiah Insights to Teenage Temptations that is really rad!
A real "Cool LDS Girl" Michaela Stephens wrote the book with the following goal in mind:
To help you see how Isaiah's words apply to you and your temptations so that you will be able to...
- Resist future temptations
- Become more strengthened in the gospel
- Learn to love and understand Isaiah
- Be inspired to study Isaiah's words even more
- Help you share everything you have learned in every opportunity you get
Let me know what you think of the book here.... share some insights about it...PALEEZE!
