We’ve developed a six-lesson course for born-again Christians to share with their LDS friends. Our goal is to provide an evangelistic platform that’s visually attractive, theologically astute, and kind.
DISCOVERING GOD TOGETHER
WHO WE ARE
The Sego Lily Foundation exists to glorify God by helping Christians feed Latter-day Saints the Bread of Life (John 6:35). As we equip born-again Christians for the work of this ministry (Ephesians 4:12), we promise to tell the truth, teach the truth, and turn to the truth.
CONNECT WITH US
Whether you’re a born-again Christian or an LDS Church member, we’d love to connect with you if you have questions. God welcomes our questions and we want to imitate His gentleness and kindness in how we answer yours.
It was spring, 1848, and the Mormons were hungry—starving, actually. The Great Basin, both beautiful and fickle, demands meticulous cultivation before unlocking her bounty. Winter had depleted whatever food reserves remained and harvest dangled hopelessly in the future. This suddenly green valley had nothing left to eat.
And so, many Mormons sought help outside the faith, the Ute People, led by Chief Walkara. White-petaled flowers dappled the foothills and the Utes taught the Pioneers how to harvest the bulbs of these Sego Lilies. “Bulb-Eaters,” they were soon called, wore the nickname with pride for they had demonstrated a willingness to do whatever it takes to survive.
Today, more and more children of these Pioneers are realizing that they’re still hungry. But this time they’re hungry for more. They’re hungry for God. Many, just like their forebearers, are looking for help. And that’s exactly why we’re here. We want to help you teach your LDS friends and family how to feast on the bread of life. If they eat this bread, they may have to wear an unflattering nickname, but they won’t be hungry anymore.
Jesus puts faith in the most common terms, eating and drinking. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled” (Matthew 5:6). “Whosesoever drinks of the water that I shall give, shall never thirst again” (John 4:14). “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall never hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst” (John 6:35). In serving this food to LDS, we make three promises: to Tell the Truth, to Teach the Truth, and to Turn to the Truth.

DISCOVERING GOD TOGETHER
We’ve developed a full-featured course designed for born-again believers to share the gospel with their LDS friends. We’ve sought to create material that is accessible, theologically-rich, and caring.
OUR PROMISES TO OUR LDS FRIENDS
The Sego Lily Foundation exists to help equip born-again Christians. If you’re LDS and you’re curious about our efforts, know that in training born-again believers to share the gospel with you we make three commitments:
TELL THE TRUTH
We promise to tell the “truth in love” (Ephesians 4:15)
Many conflicted Latter-day Saints have honest questions, but don’t know where to turn. Vocalizing doubts can damage existing relationships or have unwanted consequences. You may be tempted to suppress your questions or explore them privately.
If that’s you, we’re here to help. By God’s grace, we’ll tell you the truth and we’ll do it in love. Only one Person is truly worthy—Jesus, who is “the Truth” (Revelation 5:9; John 14:6). He is the answer to all of our questions and the balm for our pain. We promise to point you to Him.
TEACH THE TRUTH
We promise, by God’s grace, to teach the truth.
God’s Word is truth (John 17:17). We can implicitly trust the Bible. It is clear (2 Timothy 3:16), reliable (Psalm 19:7), flawless (John 10:35), and preserved (1 Peter 1:25). While we have no inherent authority, God’s Word does. It alone is our capable guide to the knowledge of God (Proverbs 2:1-5) and His salvation (2 Timothy 3:15), so we promise to teach you the Bible.
If you have questions about how to understand the Bible, we want to help you find answers. God is eager to answer our questions and welcomes questions and inquiry. If we don’t have answers to your question, we promise to help you find the truth.
TURN TO THE TRUTH
We promise, by God’s grace, to turn you toward God’s truth.
God has always wanted people to feel the magnitude of His truth. The prophet Isaiah put it this way: “Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live” (Isaiah 55:3).
When people hear truth of life-and-death consequence, they can be completely overwhelmed. But God is kind. He does not expect you to take a blind leap of faith. God loves it when you make an honest investigation. We pray that you’ll feel safe enough to investigate God’s truth claims with us. And once you understand these claims, we trust that you will say with King David, “I turn my feet to your testimonies” (Psalm 119:59).
