Book of Mormon Challenge

Giving away the new Jenny Phillips cd- check out the details

This year one of our goals with the Young Women is to all read the Book of Mormon.  

I am just going to name  a few of the reasons why:

1- They can pass off the project for Virtue
2- It is the corner stone of our religion
3- It will give them power

Our Young Women are motivated by incentives 🙂
During our New Beginnings we introduced our plan to read this most wonderful book.

I found this wonderful bookmark at 
My Mix of Six

We tweaked it to work for our girls and changed up some of the incentives, but so far so good!

So this weekend we had finished up Jacob- So we had a late night and read Enos together.  It was really fun to talk about what they have already read and especially to go over the story of Enos.  Enos is one of my favorite books in the Book of Mormon because he did not go out into the wilderness to have a spiritual experience, and yet that is what happened to him.  He talks about recalling “the words which I had often heard my father speak concerning eternal life, and the joy of the saints”
“Sank deep into my heart” WOW ( this gives me hope that maybe someone is actually listening to me) He talks about praying all day and all night (hence the Late Night) Then the Lord tells him that his sins are forgiven him – another WOW- ok the next WOW is he believed him! he knew that God could not lie– therefor he had no guilt.

We Had a very fun night! 
Just Dance is a must most of the time.

I had the opportunity to talk with one of the girls Mom she said that her daughter had been working really hard to make sure she finished Jacob so she could participate in the Late Night-

I am so grateful for the Book of Mormon, I love it, I love the testimony that it gives of Jesus Christ.  I love the accounts that testify that we can all repent and be forgiven of our sins.  I love the strength it gives me to just keep going especially when times are tough.  I love to know that God loves all of his children and wants to, and will always communicate with us if we have a desire (sometimes even if we don’t necessarily at that time have a desire).  I love the promise Moroni gives at the end of the book- if we truly have a desire to know if it is true, go and ask for yourself and you will get an answer.  I love it!

    I would also LOVE to know what your rewards were- How funny that I've had very similar impressions about getting my Beehive class IN the Book of Mormon- that's where the meat is and if they can discover it for themselves it will make all the difference… Thanks for sharing your ideas. please email me at amyyorklpm at gmail dot com with your ideas if that's okay with you!

    Could you possibly email the book mark to me too? I think this sounds awesome. We have a pretty big group though so I want to come up with something that is plausible 🙂 Thanks so much!!!

    I would love to hear what you decided to use as prizes as well. I am doing this with my beehives as well and am trying to come up with prize ideas. Thanks!

    I especially love the part in Enos where it says that God cannot lie. I am in my 40's now and in my own study over the years, I have found many things in the Book of Mormon where that statement that God cannot lie just reinforces what other prophets have written. (and we know from D&C that the words of the Lord's servants are the same as the Lord's own words.)
    Even in Conference when we hear current prophets and apostles speaking to us, it is a comfort to remember what it said in Enos, that God cannot lie. It sometimes strengthens my own answers to know that. It is neat to see that other people have found that verse as impacting as I have. Good job.

    I seem to be a little behind the times but I've been looking for some incentives for our young women. Would you be able to email your version of this as well. Please.
