Last night I finished the Book of Mormon. I was super proud of myself, and a little sad all at the same time. I'll start it over tonight.
There are stories in the Book of Mormon that I know... not the way most people who are scripture scholars know, but I know them. I couldn't tell you who all of the heroes are, or who all of the bad people are. I couldn't tell you what story is in what book. But, I know that when I read my scriptures every night, I am following a commandment. I know that we have been given beautiful promises that pertain to reading the scriptures everyday. And, I know that I have been blessed with peace, comfort, happiness, quiet calmness, and light because I have read my scriptures. Right now, that is a good enough reason for me to continue to heed that commandment.
