We are in the final stages of testing a curriculum designed to share the gospel with our LDS friends. Our goal is to create material that is accessible, theologically-rich, and biblically gentle. To read more about the Sego Lily Bible Study, read more below.
THE SEGO LILY BIBLE STUDY
WHO WE ARE
The Sego Lily Foundation exists to glorify God by feeding 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, to teach the truth, and to turn to the truth.
CONNECT WITH US
Whether you’re a born-again Christian who has questions about our curriculum or a LDS Church member, we’d love to connect with you. If you are interested in our upcoming curriculum and would like to be notified when it is available, let us know and we’ll be in touch.
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. Within a year the Mormons and the Utes would shed each other’s blood, but for the briefest of windows, trading was good. Meanwhile, 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 you to feast on the bread of life. If you eat this bread, you may have to wear an unflattering nickname. But, unlike those who mock, you 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 you, we make three promises: to Tell the Truth, to Teach the Truth, and to Turn to the Truth.

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). 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). The Bible is clear (2 Timothy 3:16), reliable (Psalm 19:7), flawless (John 10:35), and preserved (1 Peter 1:25). We have no inherent authority, but 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.
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).
