  1. Impossible goal. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” The Good News isn't that you can decide to never sin, because you can't. You'll fail, over and over again. The Good News is that you can be made right in God's eyes on Jesus's merits, not yours.

    1. Thank you! You are correct!

      And I was quite vague when I said obey the commandments and keep all of the Church values.

      I have made the correction...

      Here is exactly what the kids pledge to never do...drink, smoke, lie, cheat, steal, do drugs, bully, dress immodestly, swear, intentionally look at anything pornographic, or break the law of chastity...NOT EVEN ONCE!

      I hope that gives more understanding :)

  2. I personally did not like this book. The writing and illustrations were great, but I hated the message. I would be so upset if my children started an exclusive club where they only accepted the "good" kids. And although I will always teach my kids to choose the right (out of a love for God and not because they'll get a reward), I want them to know that if they make a mistake they can repent and God will still love them.

    My grandma had an excellent phrase she always used to say. "Don't get so busy being a mormon that you forget to be Christian." This book makes me think of her. I don't think the author intended for her message to come across as unforgiving as it did. Of course, this is just my opinion. I'm glad you liked it though!
