“The Living Christ” memorization helps

You can download a copy of this document by clicking on the image.

In 2018, I memorized “The Living Christ” as part of working on a 10-hour “personal progress” project in order to increase my faith in Jesus Christ. It was a wonderful experience! I felt the witness of the Holy Ghost as I have recited these beautiful, true words. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to know our Savior better.

Our family has also been working on memorizing this document together in 2018. We learn a new sentence each Sunday at the start of our family scripture study. We repeat the new sentence 5 times. We add it on to what we have previously memorized and recite that 3x a week. We will have the entire document memorized by the end of the year.

In order to help others memorize this document, I have begun making recordings of each sentence and paragraph. This is one way that helped me to memorize the document: I tried to always begin with a prayer, asking for help to memorize the part for that day. Then I would repeat a phrase or sentence, depending on length, 5 times in a row. Once I had learned that phrase or sentence, I would learn the second one. Once I had learned the second phrase or sentence, I added it onto the first.

If you don’t have someone that is practicing with you each day, I have made audio recordings to help you or someone you know who wants to do this!

Another way I worked on the memorization was to print out the document, laminate it in plastic, and then stick it on my shower wall. I would practice my memorization as I showered each day!

I am so grateful for answered prayers to be able to memorize “The Living Christ.” I know Heavenly Father will also help you if you desire it and work hard on it.

“He was the Great Jehovah of the Old Testament, the Messiah of the New. Under the direction of His Father, He was the creator of the earth. “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made” (John 1:3). Though sinless, He was baptized to fulfill all righteousness. He “went about doing good” (Acts 10:38), yet was despised for it. His gospel was a message of peace and goodwill. He entreated all to follow His example. He walked the roads of Palestine, healing the sick, causing the blind to see, and raising the dead. He taught the truths of eternity, the reality of our premortal existence, the purpose of our life on earth, and the potential for the sons and daughters of God in the life to come.”
