Do you ever feel like God has given you something on your heart to do, but it's scary or you don't know why? I'm ever pressing forward in my goals, taking a step back, trying again. And what I need to learn is it doesn't mean PERFECTION, it means MOVEMENT. So today, act. Just do it. I am starting an illustrated blog...been messing with it for two months. Today I need strength to keep pressing forward to do what has been placed in my heart. #lds #lehisdream #brushlettering #gouache #sketchbook

For Family Home Evening last night our awesome Elders had the idea to paint one of the passages of the scriptures. We took turns reading a verse and painting it. 🎨 💗#lehisdream #feedyourmissionaries #seacoastmormons

The Man, the Tree, the Rod, and the words of Strangers and Friends. 35" x 35" mixed media on panel. My entry for the upcoming Spiritual & Religious Art show. A while back I did a small 8" x 8" study for this, knowing at some point there would be a bigger one. This is a story that I love and appreciate. #treeoflife #bookofmormon #ironrod #lehisdream #mixedmedia

'And it came to pass that I beheld a tree, whose fruit was desirable to make one happy.'

Too often, we are so engulfed by the dark forces around us, we forget about the numberless concourses of angels urging and cheering us on from the other side. Lehi's Dream, pen and ink. For sale at Heirloom Arts Co. #ldsart #ldsartist #bookofmormon #lehisdream

"And it came to pass that I beheld a tree, whose fruit was desirable to make one happy. " 1 Nephi 8:10 .. Lehi's Dream .. I ask myself today, have I decided to partake of this fruit (this day or any other day)? Or have I hid in shadows hiding myself from the light? Have I cast myself out of that light? Everyday we can choose to give ourself a new beginning and walk out of the darkness into light, leaving behind (the best we can) the things that weigh us down, both physically, spiritually and emotionally. #newbeginning #newbeginnings #walkforward #lightofchrist #lehisdream #bookofmormon #lds #inspired #sabbath #thesevenpaths #gilariver #arizona

Day 164

In Lehi’s dream we find there are 3 distinct groups of people. The 1st group wanders aimlessly around in the mist of darkness (temptations) until they find themselves in the great and spacious building among the riotous living of the world.
The 2nd group takes hold of the iron rod (the word of God) and clings to it from time to time until they reach the tree of life (the love of God) and partake of its fruit (eternal life). This 2nd group unfortunately turns from the fruit ashamed after hearkening to the 1st group in the great and spacious building, who are scoffing at them from a distance. This great and spacious building (pride of the world) eventually fell and great was the fall thereof.
Lastly, the 3rd group presses forward “continually holding fast to the rod of iron” until they came forth, fell down, rose up and partook of the fruit of the tree. This 3rd group remained due to their continual sacrifice in enduring to the end, so much so that they fell down with exhaustion of physical, mental, and spiritual strength. That sacrifice sealed their place in receiving the love of God and eternal life.
What sacrifice will we make? The choice is ever placed before us. -1 Nephi Chapter 8

And great was the multitude that did enter into that strange building. And after they did enter into that building they did point the finger of scorn at me and those that were partaking of the fruit also; but we heeded them not.
~1 Nephi 8:33

To heed is to give careful attention. Heeding those who do not believe in Christ will not help you find Him. Searching #spaciousbuilding for knowledge will not lead you to truth. It’s not posted there.

This is one of my favorite paintings. I love how the Tree of Life and Lehi's vision is depicted herein.
This is one of my favorite scripture stories. I've learned how beautiful the love of God is by studying Lehi's dream. I love the explanations and understanding I've gained through really trying to learn all I can.
Holding true to the iron rod and the word of God is my desire. My ultimate goal in life, is to get me and all those I love to the tree of life. It talks of the most desirable fruit and our sweetest moment will be when we embrace our Savior and be able to hear those words,"Well done! Welcome home!" The tree of life shows us how to take hold of our Savior and walk our journey with him.
I'm grateful our loving Father gives us insights and understandings to help us on our journey. His teachings give us what we need to return to him someday.
What a beautiful gift to have the holy scriptures to lead us and guide us home to our Savior and loving Heavenly Father. I hope to live up to all I have been taught. #lds #treeoflife #holyscriptures #lehisdream #loveofGod

Sometimes I draw pictures in my scriptures. #lehisdream

In a #vision of hardened hearts and blinded minds;partaking of the precious #fruit may seem like a waste of time. I bare the sweetest fruit in all the earth.Nothing can compare. I can satisfy your hunger for #relief from this #world of despair. Without me,your #spirit is fragile and weak. Come all #people,there is plenty to eat. I will never leave your #souls empty and bleak. I will fill your souls with infinite #joy and #peace.
There may be others along the way who point and say,"You're going the wrong way." Yeah they'll laugh and scorn,but in the end, they will be the ones who mourn. Wishing they hadn't entered that spacious building, but had partaken of the fruit of the #tree instead. Because within them they had all the glory of the world only to find out that their souls are now eternally dead. Now I beg;be the ones who hold to the iron rod until the very end.-Mana García #ironrod #truth #christ #love #poetry #lds #spiritualtruth #healing #spiritual #poetrycommunity #wordsofwisdom #lehisdream #alma32 #mindfulbutterfly

The Lord knows ALL things. He has a plan for each of us. I love this so much! #scripturefun #bofmjournaling #1nephi9 #lds #ironrod #lehisdream #bookofmormon #lds

Lehi's Dream! Boyd K Packer said to read and reread it. Where are you? I love this visual lesson. There are so many things to learn from this! Hold to the rod!😊#scripturefun #bofmjournaling #1nephi8 #bookofmormon #lehisdream #lds #scriptures #ironrod

This beautiful lemon tree looks so much like the #treeoflife in #lehisdream

And then there's this one. The opposite side of the page says "And after they had partaken of the fruit of the tree they did cast their eyes about as if they were ashamed. 1 Nephi 8:25" So important to remember that we can do all that work to get to the tree and then get there and fall away. Contrast this verse with the end of 1 Nephi 8:30 "until they came forth and fell down and partook of the fruit of the tree." Notice that these people fell down, continuing to kneel and worship. Anyways, I like his great and spacious building. It kind of looks like how Saltair should look.

This one is called "Lehi Beheld the Fruit."
