Hello Dear Friends!
Wow! Can't believe we are on Day 59 already! It seems like we just started the book club a few weeks ago. I hope you have all had a great day. Karlee and I went out to lunch with a group of friends and then got finished in time to run my children around town which begins at 2:30 on Wednesdays and doesn't end until 8:00 pm. I was able to slip in fixing dinner somewhere in there, too! Yes my life is busy but I wouldn't have it any other way.
In chapter 53 we are introduced to the 2000 Stripling Warriors. These are the sons of those Lamanites who joined the church when Ammon and his brethren taught them the gospel. The parents of these young boys made a covenant to bury their weapons of war and never to shed blood again. These sons never made that covenant and have been raised up in the gospel. The Lamanites keep invading the lands of the Nephites and these young boys want to fight and defend their own lands and people. They are also referred to as the Sons of Helaman. Here are my favorite verses in today's reading.
I love this song called We'll Bring the World His Truth and the video I found to go with it. I hope you enjoy it, too!
Here is a great talk given by Elder Bednar. It is long but so worth it!
I hope you all have a great night!
