"Reading Marilyn's book is like having a conversation with a dear friend--the kind of friend that is incredibly INSIGHTFUL, laugh-out-loud FUNNY, empathetic; she just 'gets it.' She also has that wonderful quality of INSPIRING you to become your best self. So grateful the next installment in the

Buy lots of books, because it all
goes to a good cause!

Book of Mormon
The scriptures deal with the most serious issues in life, but that doesn’t mean we need to take ourselves so seriously! In the User-friendly Book of Mormon I’ve tried to create something that is inspiring and helps us find modern applications for ancient stories. And it’s also just a little bit fun. Chapter titles include: Laman and Lemuel: What to Do When the Kids Want to Kill Each other, Isaiah Goes to Girls’ Camp, and The Brother of Jared’s Guide to Dating. You get my drift.
Can Jacob and Esau help us learn to get along with our crazy relatives? What do Joseph and Potiphar’s wife have to teach us about dealing with online pornography? Quite a bit, it turns out. The reason why these stories have been around forever is because they are always real, relevant, and relatable; there is something very modern about them.
