Book of Mormon Challenge

I would like to challenge any who might wander over to this blog to read the Book of Mormon with me. You can do so online by clicking the link on the left side of my blog. I will leave my chapter by chapter comments, and I hope you will share your thoughts (and questions) as well.

There are many interesting and thought provoking books to read in the world. I encourage you to take this opportunity to read what we believe is scripture. As you do, I encourage you to look for the witnesses of Jesus Christ.

President Marion G. Romney said:

“I feel certain that if, in our homes, parents will read from the Book of Mormon prayerfully and regularly, both by themselves and with their children, the spirit of that great book will come to permeate our homes and all who dwell therein. The spirit of reverence will increase; mutual respect and consideration for each other will grow. The spirit of contention will depart. Parents will counsel their children in greater love and wisdom. Children will be more responsive and submissive to the counsel of their parents. Righteousness will increase. Faith, hope, and charity—the pure love of Christ—will abound in our homes and lives, bringing in their wake peace, joy, and happiness” (Ensign, May 1980, p. 67

That's a pretty awesome promise. Try it out with me! :)

I just finished reading it in December - for the 2nd time last year. I started over again about a week ago.
