Scripture Power

Ha ha.  I saw this on Pinterest.  It's so true.
Last Sunday (June 29) I finished my goal to read the Book of Mormon in 30 days.
IT IS TRUE!
God, through His Spirit, bore this witness to me during my 30 days.
When Joseph Smith, Jr said ". . . a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its (the Book of Mormon's) precepts, than by any other book" he was absolutely correct.  The power that has surrounded me during the last month has been incredible.  I was on a high and although it was challenging reading 20 pages a day, I was sad when I was done.  

I've begun reading it again- this time slowly, from the beginning.  I've also set a goal to read the Doctrine and Covenants (something I've never read entirely through) in 30 days = only 8 pages a day.

"Do you want to get rid of a bad habit? Do you want to improve relationships in your family? Do you want to increase your spiritual capacity? Read the Book of Mormon!"

Such conviction! I need to pick up a paperback Book of Mormon instead of trying to get into it on my iPad mini. For some reason it feels more real to me that way...
