Book of Mormon: BLITZ

3 Nephi 11--one of the very best chapters in the Book of Mormon

Ready. Set. Go. 
I set a goal at the beginning of the year that I would finish the Book of Mormon by graduation. 
Well, here I am one month away from graduation and I have half of the Book of Mormon left. 
I'm currently in Alma 30---fascinating Chapter about Korihor--the anti-Christ. He is definitely repersenting the world today and how they attack families, the divinity of the Godhead, and no faith whatsoever. 

Last night, I watched Sister Rosemary M. Wixom, again. And she shared a story of how a young man wanted to come to know if the Book of Mormon was true. He spent an hour each night reading the Book of Mormon, desiring to know for himself. 
I wanted to take this challenge to study the scriptures for an hour each day. I have a "unshaken" testimony that the Book of Mormon is true, but I will still read it with an objective in mind.
I have challenged of friend of mine, to study an hour each day until we finish the Book of Mormon. 
And as I have been studying, ideas come to me, "oh i want to re-read the Book of Mormon with this goal in mind, or looking for specific patters, or other such objectives. 
So....here I go. i MIGHT go on a Book of Mormon blitz to finish my second half in one week, just so that when we start reading for an hour a day, I can start again at the beginning. But, than I might not because I don't want to gloss over anything!

Luckily, it will be the best hour spent in my day, so this is probably the best challenge we can do!


  1. Bubbarooski-you inspire me! Seriously your testimony and your change in studying the scriptures is incredible. I remember scripture study is what changed me too. Are you trying to finish it before graduation? If so, try reading it two weeks. It takes about an hour to read 40 pgs roughly but you learn lots. Do you have questions that you study? Scripture for the day: Jacob 3:2 :) love ya!
