Discovering the Word of Wisdom

Unlike traditional diets which are filled with do's and don'ts, the dietary counsel in the Word of Wisdom is principle based. This allows each of us to seek the Lord’s counsel to apply the wisdom we find in it. In this presentation, Jane Birch will discuss the power of diet in preventing and reversing chronic disease and encourage participants to explore the three dietary principles in the Word of Wisdom. How can this wisdom help us receive health in the navel and marrow in the bones so that the “destroying angel” might pass us by (D&C 89:18-21)?

Jane Birch is the author of Discovering the Word of Wisdom: Surprising Insights from a Whole Food, Plant-based Perspective (2013). She graduated from Brigham Young University with a BA in History and a PhD in Instructional Science. She currently serves as Assistant Director for Faculty Development at the Faculty Center. She supports the amazing faculty at BYU in their efforts to combine religious faith with their professional responsibilities in teaching, scholarship and citizenship. ​
