As we draw near to the Memorial of Jesus’s Death, I have decided to step back from Instagram @alla.lily throughout March. I want to take this time to prepare my heart by reflecting on Jesus’ teachings and his sacrifice and to ponder how I can follow his example by showing love and compassion to those around me.

One of the ways I like to prepare for this special occasion is to study about Jesus’ life and ministry. However, with so many study materials available about Jesus in the JW library, I sometimes feel overwhelmed what to focus on.

That’s why I choose only a few topics each year to study. In fact, I’ve come up with some study project ideas that I believe you will find helpful as you prepare for the Memorial, and I would be delighted to share them with you.
