disappointed that I read it in 43 days not 40? Not one bit. It was such an amazing experience that I can't help but be happy with my efforts. The truth is if I skipped a day (which happened a little too often) I actually felt a void - it's a little hard to explain. Anyway, I just want to share my testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. I know it has been given to us as a gift to bless our lives and lead us on the path to eternal life.
At times during my reading I got frustrated with the people who continually fell into the 'pride cycle' - and then I realized that they didn't each have personal copies of the scriptures like we do today. Their prophets had sometimes a single copy, but the people did not. Would things have gone a little better for them had they been able to study their scriptures in their homes as a family each day? Of course I really don't know. But I do know that today we are so blessed to have access to the words of the prophets both ancient and contemporary - if we choose to take advantage of it. I love the term 'less is more' and use it often, but I have learned over the last 43 days that when it comes to reading the Book of Mormon, 'more is more'!
