Intent of the Law

A commission. Jarom is an oft-overlooked book in the Book of Mormon. It briefly summarizes a period of Nephite history, including the teaching of the people. In this verse, Jarom explains that the people were taught the Law of Moses, but also the intent of the law. That is, they were taught that the law helped them to look forward to the coming of their Savior and His atoning sacrifice. We too should diligently teach, not only the commandments of God and the laws of the land but also the reasons that they were given. Doing so will help us and those we teach to internalize the principles upon which those laws are based.

If you would like your own commission illustrating a favorite scripture or inspirational quote, check out my Commissions page for more info!

All Beggars

The righteous King Benjamin reminds us all that we are all beggars. There is not a single one of us who has not required and benefitted from the generous blessings supplied to us by God. Even those who do not believe in God must acknowledge that they have received boons which they did not work for and cannot claim to have "earned". It would be hypocritical therefore to look down upon those who need help from time to time, whether that be financial, emotional, or spiritual help. We should be generous with what we have, for it is not ours to keep. Everything we have came from another Source.

White as Wool

A reminder that there is no stain that the atoning power of Jesus Christ cannot erase. We have only to accept His invitation to be made clean.

I tried inking this one by hand and then coloring it digitally. I like some things about the process but there are other things I want to refine.
