Just Read!

I feel strongly that we must, all of us, return to the scriptures... and let them work mightily within us, impelling us to an unwavering determination to serve the Lord. ~Spencer W. Kimball

Brothers and sisters, you don't have to be a natural student to read the scriptures; you just need to love the Lord. (Ensign, Nov 1982, p. 15 ~J. Richard Clarke)

The scriptures that are never read will never help us. (Ensign, May 1985 p. 23. ~L. Tom Perry)

Studying and searching the scriptures is not a burden laid upon us by the Lord, but a marvelous blessing and opportunity. (Ensign, May 1986, p. 81 ~Ezra Taft Benson)

Okay, I know it is not January (the traditional time to set a new goal) but I am making a new commitment to better study my scriptures...

Great post - it's something I've been thinking about too. I need to give my scripture study more attention.

I have been so bad at this now that I'm not teaching seminary. It just isn't the same. But I'm with you, I'm gonna be better!

Maybe we need a scripture blog to share what we've learned in our reading!! Would that motivate us more?? lol

My daughter and I were just discussing this today. We have been slacking and need to refocus.

This was a great kudo and cheerlead. Thanks.

You know your a Mormon, when your New Years Resolution ends at 2nd Nephi

I love the idea of a scripture blog too.

Great quotes. This is something I need to try harder to do. Seems we do really good for a week or two, and then slack off.

Thanks for leaving me a comment! I love to find new blogs to read, even if it makes me spend more time watching my butt spread as I sit here...

!!! Tammy, you crack me up! Yeah, I keep seeing my butt get bigger as I sit here and THINK about exercising or reading my scriptures more! hummm... but I love to chat so... I just keep on blogging!

Jan… love your, “You know you’re a Mormon when…”!!! It is so sad and true! Okay, so… you and Deb both mentioned a scripture blog… LET’S DO IT!!! It just might put us in that “return and report” situation!

What a wonderful reminder. I need to get it together with regards to this... since having my baby, I fell off the scripture wagon! I think a scripture blog is a fantastic idea!
