Announcement: “We Three Kings”


Synopsis: When the signs of the Savior’s birth appear, Nephi witnesses another miracle—the Liahona starts working again after 600 years of being idle! Determined to find and worship the King of kings, Nephi takes his brother Timothy and skeptic Cephus on a journey across the ocean that ultimately changes their lives—and the course of history—as they become the legendary Three Wise Men.

Sometime next month, Cedar Fort International will release John Pontius’ fictional book, “We Three Kings”. It’s story is not only entertaining, but also has a wonderful spiritual message which can be life-changing.

At it’s heart, “We Three Kings” is about coming unto Christ — and encouraging others to come unto Christ — using (in part) the God-given tools we have in our possession. As these tools are miraculously activated, they lead us on wonderful, sometimes breathtaking, adventures which ultimately culminate in us finding ourselves bowing in His presence.

Get A Free Copy of “We Three Kings”

All of us have similar stories of how we, too, have been led through (sometimes awe-inspiring, sometimes tragic) journeys which changed our lives and culminated in us discovering the Savior in a profound way.

That’s why, starting today, I’m offering ten free copies of “We Three Kings”. Yes, there’s a catch: You need to submit your real-life story (about yourself or someone else who is alive and has granted permission for their story to be told) of coming unto the Savior. A few of us who run the UnBlog will read these submissions and will narrow the list down to ten. Then, soon after “We Three Kings” is released, we’ll contact the winners, send them their books and start publishing their stories on the UnBlog.

Please keep in mind:

  • Submissions must include your name, email address and phone across the top (when posted to the UnBlog, we’ll only post your name).
  • They must be 800-1200 words long (any more or less than this will be disqualified).
  • Must be based on events which really happened to you (or another; see above); no embellishing.
  • If you can’t think of anything and need suggestions of topics to write about, please consult our Reader Submissions page.
  • Should be done in Word.
  • Must not have been previously published (they are “copyright free”).
  • Must be e-mail attached and submitted to jmpontius@gmail.com by 11:59PM Sunday, August 31.
  • It is not my intention to publish these in another book; just the UnBlog.

I look forward to reading your stories of coming unto the Savior, in celebration of the forthcoming release of “We Three Kings”!

Love (and good luck!),

Terri Pontius

    I have often wondered if I should tell my story. because I feel shame and great love when I think about my life experiences. I felt a desire to share what has happened to me when I read this invitation to make a submission about a true story my heart choked my feelings. But I am scared to open myself up but I want to. How do you get the courage to write these things down for others to read? Please help me, mine is a rebel Alma or Ammon story who’s ending is not yet known. Thank you. Dan

    • Dear Dan,

      I am humbled by your sweet words, and I felt personally connected to you as I read them. This is because EVERY one of us truly are sinners, and fall short of the glory of God. We all have a “history”–and anybody who tells you otherwise is deceiving themselves! That’s the rule–no exception.

      If the Spirit prompts you to write something, then do it according to that which you are prompted to do. Don’t write more or less than the Spirit directs. (Sometimes we feel we “should” disclose something, but the Spirit whispers no.)

      John would say that “obedience is always the correct response.” He would also tell you that if you follow the Spirit on this (and everything else), the outcome will always be better than it would have been if you didn’t follow the prompting. In this, you can absolutely have trust and feel peace.

      I admit that I was kinda nervous about this request in connection with “We Three Kings.” I hoped that people would understand that we are only asking them to share their personal stories so that we all can be uplifted, and focus upon the grace and salvation of Jesus Christ! Thank you for taking this in the way it was intended. I look forward to your inspired story!

      Love, Terri
