On Sunday our ward kicked off a new program. We were asked to memorize the Book of Mormon Scripture Mastery Scriptures and to Read the Book of Mormon by December 31, 2009. As a family we decided to take on this feat and support our Bishopric. I, personally, feel very close to the Bishop and I know he is inspired and that if we follow his counsel he guide us to Christ. (he's also very good looking, I love to watch him on the stand)
We started our daily reading of 2 chapters of the Book of Mormon on Sunday, August 30, 2009. After checking every one's schedules, 6:00 AM was the only time available. YIKES! I'm tired already! However, we are serious about our commitment and we are up to the challenge. Like Nephi, I was raised by goodly parents who also had scripture in prayer in the wee hours of the morning, too. (thanks Mom and Dad!) I remember bringing my blanket and reading with my family half asleep.
I am happy to announce... We have accomplished two days rising at 6 AM! Our rules are: only one blanket and you must be in the room. We hope, as we continue to do our program, our kids will start participating a little bit more than what you see in this picture. Good job, Abby and Eliza!
