Book of Mormon Challenge


If there is free time around here this is what you will find. Someone, if not many, reading the Book of Mormon. Brian has challenged the family to see who can finish the BOM the quickest. We started Tuesday morning. Bailee and Karlee were eager to start. They wanted to beat their Dad bad. By the end of the day both Karlee and Bailee had finished 1Nephi. Brian was on chapter 17, I think and I hadn't even started. McKinzie decided not to take on the challenge. Day two, Karlee and Brian had finished 2Nephi. Bailee only had a couple of chapters left. Still, I haven't started. The guilt is setting in and I'm wondering if what McKinzie is doing is not too bad an idea. Today both Bailee and Karlee on in Jacob and Brian is in Mosiah 1. I finally started and I'm at 1Nephi 20. I know I'm way behind. But you have to take into account how busy life is. This week had become extremely busy and spare time...none. I think I may hide their BOM so I can catch up. Karlee set the pace the first few days and the rest of us have been trying to keep up. I need to convince them to take a break so I can sort of catch up. I'll keep you posted on the out come. Wish me luck. I'm the only one that needs it.
end of day - Bailee is in the lead, mosiah 2. I'm at 2 Nephi 2 :0)

Great idea! You'll do great! My roommates and I, in college, read the Book of Mormon in one day (24 hours) flat! It was an awesome experience, we ordered out for Subway and just hung out with church music playing and read! Afterward we had a roommate pow-wow about what we noticed this time through... and I recall being surprised at just how much stood out; even while reading it in 24 hours! So, you can totally catch up! In fact, you could still beat them all... just hide in a closet, bathroom, or give the kids away for the day!

You'll do great!

What a great challenge. You'll have scriptures on the brain and be dreaming about the Book of Mormon.It'll be great! Good luck and I hope things calm down a bit--ha, ha! By the way, your time at the cabin looks so fun! I keep wanting to ask about it and forget to whenever I see you.

That is awesome. You can do it and beat them all....not that you haven't been at the church busy with your calling this week or anything! Thanks for all your help with last night.
