Book of Mormon Challange

Ok Family and Friends,

Dan and I have decided that we wanted to read the Book of Mormon by the end of the year... I'm sure all of you remember the challange President Hinkley gave to the world back in the Oct/2005 general conference.

Dan and I did not participate in this challange, and I always felt kind of like I should have. I tried justifying the fact that we didn't. I mean give me a break Dan and I were planning our wedding, and did our best to justify that we didn't have "time."

Silly us...! One of my favorite quotes that I am sure Dan got from someone famous, but has taken it and made it his own is. "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions..." So often in my life I feel like I am paving my own road with "Good Intentions." Well not this time, I am bound and determined to finish the book of mormon this year...!

I would also like to extend this challange to all of my Friends and Family! I understand that we are approaching the busiest time of the year, but I think it is the perfect way to stay close to the gospel, and to help us remember the simple things in life that keep us grounded...!

I want you all to know that I do have a testimony of this Gospel, as simple as my testimony is. It is stong and I know that by reading the book of mormon it will only help it to grow.
