FINISHED!

So i finished the Book of Mormon! just a few hours before the 4 day limit too! it was awesome! i am so glad i challenged myself to do this! if you are seeking for some peace, answers, direction, counsel...i definitely encourage you to read this powerful book as you would a novel, in a short amount of time. i can not doubt the truthfulness which lies within its pages. i know that those who kept record were real, actual people, fulfilling a commandment so that we, in these latter days, would have their words to draw strength from. how thankful i am , and blessed we are to have their words and teachings. how thankful am i that this young boy, joseph smith, was living in accordance to the gospel, so that he indeed recognized the spirit which influence him to go ask the Lord, on his knees, for His direction. i know that it was His testimony and the strength of the spirit that allowed the restoration of this great gospel to come about.
i love this gospel! i know that the Book of Mormon is true and inspired of God! may we all strive more dilligently strive to make this good book a part of our lives!
