Can you believe we are on Day 88 already? Only a couple more days to go and then we are finished reading the Book of Mormon! I hope you have enjoyed reading along with me.
Today was a pretty good Sunday. Great talks, great people, and great food for dinner. I made a meatloaf, my 13 year old made Cream Puffs, and a few of us played Settlers of Catan for the first time. It was kind of hard to understand the game but once we started it was really fun.
On Saturday I went with my girls to a church activity called Young Women in Excellence. The girls in our church ages 12-18 are in Young Women and get to work on what's called Personal Progress for those 6 years. It is a way that they can learn, grow, and achieve personal accomplishments in their lives. This was an event to recognize those girls who have worked on specific areas through the past year.
We are finishing up the Book of Ether today and we can see how, through iniquity, an entire civilization can be destroyed. If only they would have repented and returned to the Lord!
Now we are in the final book in the Book of Mormon called Moroni. Moroni was Mormon's son and Mormon it the person who compiled the Book of Mormon. That is where it gets its name from. :) I have a lot of favorite parts and verses in the Book of Moroni.
"And I, Moroni, will not deny the Christ; wherefore, I wander whithersoever I can for the safety of mine own life."
In Moroni 4 & 5 we read the proper way for the Sacrament to be administered. These are the words I hear every Sunday in my church as I partake of the Sacrament. It is the same prayer given in every LDS church around the world.
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday tomorrow! I'm looking forward to finishing the Book of Mormon with you!
