Book of Mormon

Today has been a BIG day for me, as this morning I officially finished reading the whole Book of Mormon from beginning to end for the first time ever in my life. For me, it is a HUGE accomplishment! Something I have tried to do my whole life, but for one reason or another I hadn't been able to do it. Yes, you heard me correctly...the first time ever!! I have started reading it more times than I can count. And tried reading here and there in it MANY, MANY times. I really, really believe it is because I was ready...spiritually, mentally ready! I not only read it, but felt the spirit as I read it daily and I understood what I was reading as I read it.

Back in January I received a new calling as the Young Woman's Secretary in our ward. And they were already 15 days into their Book of Mormon reading I was behind and had A LOT of reading to do to catch up. I am SO thankful to my Young Woman's Presidency for doing this Book of Mormon reading challenge as it gave me the push I so badly needed. 

I am so proud of me ha that awful...but I really am. I wish I could shout from a mountain top...I DID IT!!! 

Now, I am going to read the Doctrine and Covenants from beginning to end...and now, I am looking forward to all that I will learn from it.
