The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. FINISHED!

If you have been following my blog, you know that about just over a month ago, the Washington Vancouver Mission was challenged to read The Book of Mormon before June 11th. I am proud to report that I finished it this morning in my personal study! In two of my previous posts, I forwarded the challenge that is found at the end of The Book of Mormon in chapter 10 in the book of Moroni. It 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.
In my post The Book of Mormon: A Challenge, I talked about renewing this challenge each, and every time we read The Book of Mormon. As I have read, I have prayed to have it confirmed in my heart that The Book of Mormon is true. Each day as I read, I was able to feel peaceful and happy. Through subtle feelings, I came to know all over again that The Book of Mormon is true. I am so grateful for the spirit and the opportunity that he gives me to know "the truth of ALL things." You too can receive an answer through the Holy Ghost.

I know that The Book of Mormon is true. It is the convincing evidence that Joseph Smith was called to be a prophet. Because I know this, I know that Christ's gospel has been restored on the earth again. I am grateful for the prophets who wrote The Book of Mormon. I know that they were inspired men of God. I am amazed at the love Jesus offers us. I know that he lives. He has provided many ways to help us return to him. I am so grateful for that.

Read The Book of Mormon. Pray about it. Then allow the Holy Ghost to testify of its truthfulness.
