Ok, now that we’ve got our feet wet with the Book of Mormon for Kids, Brandon and Jessica have their sights on the Doctrine & Covenants for Kids. I checked Amazon, and I think it will be the first of it’s kind! Stay tuned!
Pick up your copy on Amazon.com. It’s available for the Kindle for only $1! If you’re interested in a printed copy, please email me at Gospel Tangents at gmail dot com. It should appeal to children from 2-10.
Why did we make it? A few years ago, I picked up a children’s Bible (made out of sturdy cardboard pages) and brought it home. My kids loved it, and became very familiar with the stories of the Bible. One day, I asked them about a Book of Mormon story, and they had no idea what I was talking about. I have looked for some children’s Book of Mormon, but they were all a bit too mature for my 7 and 5 year old to understand. I needed something that would teach to their level. So, I decided to write it myself, and have them illustrate it. My children loved the idea.
Brandon thought we could sell it! At first, I laughed at the idea. But with the Kindle, publishing is much easier so, I thought I would give it a shot! Our Bible was read so much, it’s practically destroyed now. I think it’s ok to read a Bible so much that it gets worn out. I hope to do the same with the Book of Mormon. (But make sure your kids don’t destroy your Kindle!) I am working on getting it published, and I hope you’ll be one of the first people to buy it! If you have a Nook, I plan to publish it there too, with the Sony e-Reader not far behind!
Now that we have this up, we will start to work on a child’s version of the Doctrine and Covenants.
One day I was in the hall at church talking to some friends. One of my friends came up and said, “is this the Gospel Tangents class?” I thought it was pretty funny, and since the domain was available, I picked it.
I have lots of ideas for books, and plan to write my ideas here. I hope to get some feedback to see if the ideas may be of interest to you. As you can see, my first idea originated with Brandon, but I have lots of ideas. Check back here, and I’ll post them.
