The January issue of the Ensign and Liahona magazines is dedicated to helping you learn more about the Restoration in this bicentennial year, and also enhance your study of the Book of Mormon as part of the Come, Follow Me study for 2020.
Note this article by President M. Russell Ballard about “How the Lord Prepared the World for the Restoration.” In this article, President Ballard explains that “As we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the First Vision this year, it may be appropriate to remember the numerous women and men over the course of centuries who were inspired by the Lord as He prepared the world for the Restoration that began when the Father and the Son appeared to young Joseph Smith, who was seeking forgiveness and direction in 1820.”
Then explore a timeline that shows the events leading up to the Restoration and the Second Coming.
Another article encourages you to have the greatest year with the greatest book. As you focus on the new home-centered curriculum, you can create a study plan in the Gospel Library app, use the “Family Study Fun” activity ideas (see below), and watch the new Book of Mormon Video Series.
