30 Days of Thanks #17
Today I am thankful for the scriptures. I have tried to set a goal of reading them everyday, and have had a wonderful experience. This year so far I have read the Book Of Mormon, the D & C, and the Pearl of Great Price. I am currently reading the Old Testament and I am in the book of Kings and I am reading about King Solomon and he has just built his temple. Quite the feat from what I have read. I am reading the stories that I have just heard vague things about and it's exciting. I am also re-reading the Book of Mormon and I am almost done with it again. It amazes me how much it has impacted my life each time I have read it. There is so much in there that I still need to figure out that I don't think I will tire of reading it ever. I was very touched when at Young Women's in excellence one of our young women got up and talked about how she had read the Book of Mormon for the first time, and she talked about the impact it had had on her decision making and how it helped her. I felt the spirit bear testimony to me that she knows, when before I am not sure she did. I know how important read the scripture is, they can guide and direct your life in a way nothing else can.
