Search... Ponder... and Pray.

Recently David and I decided to try to finish the Book of Mormon before General Conference. He finished a week before and I finished during the opening song of the Saturday morning session :)
(General Conference is when the leaders of our Church speak to us... including the Prophet, Thomas S. Monson. We hear from them the first weekend of every April and October.)
Every time I finish the Book of Mormon I feel so empowered and happy. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon. I know without a doubt that it is true. I know it because of the spirit that I feel when I am reading it. If you haven't read the Book of Mormon I challenge you to do so. I know that as you read it daily your days will be better. It will help you to resist temptation. You will learn about Jesus Christ. I testify that if you read the Book of Mormon prayerfully, you too will know the truthfulness of it. If you don't have a Book of Mormon and would like one, I have extra ones just for you! :)

Picture of David when he was on his mission in Brazil.
This was a family he and his mission companion taught the gospel to. The family read from the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if it was true. They were all baptized.
