Ensign October 2011 - 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.
