In this collage of photographs, Brown ponders how we come to Christ. The Book of Mormon prophet Amulek charged readers to "cry unto him in your houses," implying spaces of order and balance, but also "in your wilderness," a place of vastness and wandering (Alma 34:21, 26). God’s children are all invited to come to the Savior, but the pathway of discipleship is individual; sometimes the journey is ordered and clear and sometimes it is marked by struggle and longing.

"I try to remind myself that no matter where I am, God is with me."
