How's Your Book of Mormon Challenge Going??

Hey! How's everyone doing?? I hope that everything is going well! I hope that people are still reading the Book of Mormon and are on target to finish by May! It is seriously the best book ever. I know that everyone can come closer to God by reading it. I have definitely felt that as I have studied it more seriously!

So I just wanted to challenge everyone that is doing the Book of Mormon challenge to watch a talk.

It's Elder Holland's talk (so you know it's good...) from October 2009 General Conference called "Safety for the Soul". It's an amazing talk all about the Book of Mormon.

I definitely can't testify as powerfully as Elder Holland can, but I want to add my testimony to his, that the Book of Mormon is true! I know that it is without a doubt in my mind. I have felt the power of the Book of Mormon in my life as I have studied it. I know that anyone who sincerely reads it and prays about it can know that it is true! This book has changed my life. I KNOW that it can change yours.

There is a great promise at the end of the book that says:

"And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things."
Please put this promise to the test! I know that everyone will get an answer that asks. Our answers might not all be the same, there might not be huge displays of fireworks, angels probably won't be singing the hosanna chorus, and chances are you probably won't faint out of pure joy, but you will get an answer.

  1. Sister Harris!!!! It is always so fun to see how you are doing and hearing your testimony. How are you surviving the winter there? I was watching LDS Mission Calls on FB the other day and a cute sister missionary had been called to your mission. She was so excited and said that was where she had wanted to go. What a great blessing for you. There hasn't been a day pass where I wasn't grateful for the opportunity and blessing of serving a mission. It prepared me for the path the Lord has wanted me to take. It hasn't been a walk in the park, but I know that my mission prepared and strengthened me for the task. You were a rock star before you left, I can only imagine the amazing woman and follower of Christ you have become. Thank you for your example to me and my girls!!! Love you tons!!!!!
