Visions of Hope by Annie Henrie, LDS Blog Tour
The most fundamental questions in our lives—questions about where we came from, why we are here, and where we are gonig—are answered when we have a true understanding of the plan of salvation. Now, our understanding is deepened and enlivened by this beautifully illustrated depiction of God's eternal plan for His children. In her unique, richly textured style, fine artist Annie Henrie offers a visual interpretations of the plan of salvation, including pre-earth life, the Creation, the Fall of Adam and Eve, life on earth, the spirit world, the Atonement and the Resurrection, and the kingdoms of glory. Accompanied by text from the scriptures, each exquisite image testifies of God's love for us and of His plan of happiness.
I love the illustrations in this book! They are beautiful and inspiring! I tried this out as a Family Home Evening lesson. It outlines the plan of salvation in the first few pages and then the following pages break it down step by step with correlating scripture and illustration. I personally loved it! The younger kids lasted about halfway through and by then their attention was lost on it. But as an adult I loved how each page how everything was put together and that is had the scripture to explain each part of the plan. This is an excellent resource for the plan of salvation that anyone would enjoy!
You can pick up your own copy via Deseret Book.
