🔹 The Atonement of Jesus Christ is for Me is a Latter-day Saint picture book by Sierra Wilson published in 2018

🔹 A great addition to any Latter-day Saint home

Great for reading in church, for an FHE lesson, or as a baptismal gift

Not just for kids—it teaches pure doctrine in a simple way that would benefit any reader of any age

🔹 Jesus Christ is the source of the Atonement

The book does a wonderful job of keeping the Atonement connected to Jesus Christ

"Jesus gave His life for you and for me / So we can repent and be happy and free. / And because Jesus died for us and now lives again, / We'll live again too, with our family and friends."

President Nelson taught, "It is doctrinally incomplete to speak of the Lord’s atoning sacrifice by shortcut phrases, such as ...  'applying the Atonement' or 'being strengthened by the Atonement' ... treating the EVENT as if IT had living existence and capabilities independent of our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. Under the Father’s great eternal plan, it is the Savior who suffered. It is the Savior who broke the bands of death. It is the Savior who paid the price for our sins and transgressions and blots them out on condition of our repentance."

🔹 Jesus Christ can comfort you

"When we feel scared, or lonely, or sad, / Jesus can help us feel peaceful and glad. / And what if I'm hurting down deep in my heart? / Jesus understands you and knows where to start."

Similar to Alma 7:11-12—"He shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind ... and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy ... that he may know ... how to succor his people according to their infirmities."

🔹 Jesus Christ can help you become better

"With Jesus's help, we can all do good deeds. / We can cheer up a friend or help someone in need. / Jesus knows how to help you become the best you. / He wants to guide you all your life through."

Elder Bednar explained, "The gospel of Jesus Christ encompasses much more than avoiding, overcoming, and being cleansed from sin and the bad influences in our lives; it also essentially entails doing good, being good, and becoming better."

🔹 The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the most important doctrine

"All other things which pertain to our religion are only appendages to [the Atonement of Jesus Christ]" -Joseph Smith

🔹 Takeaway

Study the Atonement of Jesus Christ by reading the verses found in the Topical Guide under the entry, "Jesus Christ, Atonement through"
