Thursday, March 1

Another reason to get off your computer...

Spring is in the air!!

Can you feel it?  I felt it yesterday. 
 I passed two different (and competing) track teams running, while I was driving to the mall all by myself.  As in, with no kids.  
I had completely forgotten what it was like to shop without a cart.  
What are you supposed to do with your hands?!  

And then I left the mall and drove to DI where I bought myself a whole new wardrobe for $32.  

But back to spring.  
It's coming.  
And I for one could not possibly be more excited. 
 I'm ready to cut all my pants into shorts and put some miles on my bike.  

But first things first.  Today is March 1st.  Time for me to get reading the Book of Mormon.  I'll be reading 17 pages a day this month.  And I invite you to too.

It just might change your life. 

In case you're new to the Book of Mormon Challenge, it goes down like this...
In March you are invited to read the whole Book of Mormon.
This breaks down to 17 pages a day.
You can read it, listen to it, watch the ASL version.  Whatever.
If you're already part way into the book that's okay.  You can start where you are and read 17 pages a day and then start over.  Or you can start over.  Or whatever you want to do.

If you happen to be seeing this after March 1st it's not too late!  Just start today.

The goal is to read the whole book this month. 
The important thing is to read more than you normally would so that when General Conference rolls around you are ready.

You can do it.

ahhh! I actually am thinking about doing this! What are you doing to me??! I am already drowning!

Praying that The Book of Mormon is like spiritual floaties. ;)

Thanks for the push!

I am going to try... We should go to the temple the last day of the month (which happens to be a Saturday) then go eat some delicious food somewhere in honor of our accomplishment.

@Kyle and Emily I LOVE that idea. I'm going to conference on Saturday, but maybe the day before or after. Or ya'll could go without me.

Nope you inspired this so you've got to participate in the fun. Just so you know I am already behind... I need to get my butt in gear or I fear I will never catch up. We could go to the temple Friday? What about lunch or dessert or something before or after?

You know I'm always in for food!!

I'm behind too :)
