While writing the book Discovering the Word of Wisdom: Surprising Insights from a Whole Food, Plant-based Perspective, I solicited the stories of other Mormons who are living the whole food, plant-based (WFPB) lifestyle. As their stories came pouring in, one after the other, I realized something very profound was happening. There are Mormons, literally around the world, who are “waking up” to the Word of Wisdom, just as I was. I knew there must be a reason for this great awakening. There must be a reason so many Latter-day Saints are feeling moved by the Spirit to take a much closer look at D&C 89, to find the “hidden treasure” that has been there all along.
After making room for 30 stories in my book, I realized I could not make room for the many other stories I had received, and I knew there must be many more out there. It was then that I decided to create a website devoted to discovering the Word of Wisdom, so that I could share more of these amazing stories, along with providing help and support for anyone, LDS or non-LDS, who wishes to explore the Word of Wisdom and/or WFPB nutrition.
I hope this site can be helpful to you in your efforts to better understand and live the Word of Wisdom. I hope you’ll experience the same awakening that so many others are experiencing and that you’ll find the hidden treasure that this beautiful revelation promises us. I also hope that you’ll be willing to share your story on this site.
