Book of Mormon Essays

In April 2011, I accepted a mission challenge to blog about one chapter of the Book of Mormon every day.  I completed this project a year later in April 2012, and spent three more years editing it.  These essays have now been compiled into the seven volume commentary, Plain and Precious, now available in paperback or ebook from major online retailers and directly from our store.  See below for direct chapter links.

  3. In your Housewife segment Helaman 2: End of times, Gadianton Robbers (which was amazing) you said there were 182 years from the time Alma restored the church to the time Christ appeared at the Nephite Temple. Could you please tell me how you calculated this number. My husband and I are very interested in the correlation between the events in Helaman and modern days. Do you have any resources we could use to learn more? I am very impressed with your writing, and I have subscribed to your blog. My name is Cathy Gorski. Please respond.

    • Hi, Cathy!
      The dates of events are in the footnotes with an asterisk (*) at the bottom of the pages all throughout the Book of Mormon… So it is just simple math.
      Thanks so much for the encouragement!
