shhhh ... listen ...

I just finished reading (who am i kidding??) listening to The Book of Mormon in 31 consecutive days! 17 pages a day = several chapters to listen to - roughly 45 minutes ... It was the background music to my quiet time most days!  I love The Book of Mormon!!  I served a mission and have read the book on my own but this time i got the story ... I saw it playing out in my head as I listened to the words become more than just scripture!  It's true.  It's the most true book and as Joseph Smith told us, we can be "nearer to God by abiding by it's precepts* than by any other book."  Find out for yourself!
