Book of Mormon Challenge

The bishop of our ward challenged us all to reread the Book of Mormon by June 15th. I love reading the Book of Mormon and have a testimony of its truthfulness. However, it is hard to find time to sit down and read the scriptures with two little girls keeping me so busy all the time. But I am determined to take the challenge and finish by June 15th. I am already ahead of schedule and am in 1 Nephi 8.

I love the story of Lehi and the tree of life. The path way which leads to our Savior is a straight and narrow path. If we just hold onto the iron rod, which is the word of God, we can make it through the mists of darkness and partake of the fruit of the tree of life which is the love of God. Although at times we may be tempted to let go of the rod and follow the way of the world, we must hold strong and keep the commandments of our Lord. Let us all endure to the end.

I challenge anyone else to read the Book of Mormon along with us and finish by June 15th. For if you read the book and pray about the things which you read, the Lord has promised that the truth of it will be made known unto you.
