The Bom-Com 
“Book of Mormon Comic” Project-

"Roughly 9 years ago I gathered my kids around for scripture reading time. One of the comments I heard was “the scriptures are boring”. I said, “did you mean they are hard to understand?” The kids replied, “No, they’re boring”.
I asked my children if they had ever heard of a group of 2,000 young men that battled an invading army and not one of the 2,000 died.  I asked if they heard about a man standing on the wall of a city prophesying of Christ while arrows, spears, and rocks were being hurled at him but couldn’t harm him. I asked if they had heard about two missionaries locked in prison until the Lord freed them by crumbling the prison to the ground killing everyone but not harming the missionaries.  I briefly summarized several other stories form the Book of Mormon.
My young kids replied, “Are those stories in the Book of Mormon?”

So….I began working on Bom-Com. I wanted to illustrate the many amazing stories of the Book of Mormon in a way that would be fun and easy to understand for young readers. I included every story, not just the popular ones. It was a fun project that was started over several times using different materials.

The original BOM-COM consisted of paper cutouts of the characters used as puppets. The second version of BOM-COM consisted of colored pencil drawings on blank pages. Once the ipad and apple pencil technology was released I began this final version of BOM-COM.

It was such a fun project to work on and complete. My children have benefitted greatly from it and I hope it can be an enjoyable companion to the Book of Mormon for young and old readers."
