Ensign October 2011 - All About the Book of Mormon

I was really excited when I got the mail today.  The October 2011 Ensign is all about the Book of Mormon!

I am especially looking forward to reading the Ensign this month.

Since it's been so long since I've posted on this blog, I think that as I read each of the articles this month, I will post my thoughts and commentary on them here.

Now for a couple of side notes ... our family, a few months ago, finished reading the Book of Mormon for the first time.  It took us a long, long time, but we did it.  We celebrated with a BBQ and swim party after we had finished.

Also, the missionaries invited us to share the Book of Mormon with our neighbors.  My wife and I both prayed about it.  I ended up sharing 'my' copy with our neighbors.  I think she had somone in mind too, but on the day she was to give a copy to her friend, the friend's son ended up getting hurt, so she never got the chance.

Lastly, I wonder if we'll get a 'Book of Mormon' talk this General Conference.  It's been a while since we've had one there - especially by one of the Apostles.  The last Apostle to speak on the subject was of course the unforgettable talk by Elder Holland (October 2009).  I don't recall any talks specifically about the Book of Mormon from the 2010 and 11 conferences.

I loved the October 2011 issue of the Ensign! As I read through it I thought "I need to share this with my relatives!" None of which are members. Do you know where I can get additional copies of that issue? As my copy is well used and I'd like to share it with multiple people. I know I can email them the link, but I like the idea of hard copy better.

motomom -

here's how to get additional copies:

go to
then click on 'gospel study'
then click on 'magazines'
then click on 'current issues'
then click on 'ensign'
from there, you will need to select the month that you want. so in this case, you would select October 2011

you can also select the number of copies you want.

best of luck!
