“My dear friends, as an Apostle of the Lord, I invite you to follow our beloved prophet, President Nelson, in flooding the earth with the Book of Mormon. The need is so great; we need to act now” (Ronald A. Rasband, “This Day,” Liahona, Nov. 2022, 27).

Recommending things we love—whether it’s a favorite book, movie, or restaurant—is something most of us do naturally and enthusiastically. You can bring that same energy into recommending the Book of Mormon to someone. What do you love most about it? How has it helped you? Why do you think your friend would like it if they tried it? Share those things with them.

You don’t have to do this alone. If you pray for guidance on who to share the Book of Mormon with and how to share it, you’ll be guided by the Holy Ghost. As you prepare to share the Book of Mormon, consider trying these things:

  • If you aren’t already reading the Book of Mormon daily, work to build that habit. This will help you be ready to share things you are learning.

  • If you have been praying to know who to share the Book of Mormon with and haven’t had a specific person come to mind yet, write down a list of people you think might be receptive to the invitation and pray about those specific names.

  • Share a favorite verse from the Book of Mormon with a friend and explain how it has helped you. You can start by making a list of a few of your favorite verses and taking some time to ponder why they are meaningful to you.

  • Practice downloading the Book of Mormon app or get an extra copy of the Book of Mormon so you’re ready to share when an opportunity presents itself.

While most Church members are used to reading the Book of Mormon on the Gospel Library app, the Book of Mormon app is much less overwhelming for a first-time reader. Users can read and listen to the Book of Mormon in over 100 languages, chat with a missionary, and discover additional resources.

For your friends, family, neighbors, workplace acquaintances, and other people you know, introducing them to the Book of Mormon yourself will be most meaningful. But in some cases—such as an interaction with a stranger in an online forum—it may feel appropriate to share this page with them so they can receive the Book of Mormon from missionaries:
