Time to feast

I just finished reading my seventeen pages of the Book of Mormon for the day.  I've been anticipating my "March Madness" ever since last years got over.  I love it that much!  Don't know or don't remember what my "March Madness" is?  It's where I read the Book of Mormon cover to cover in the month of March.  I know it seems impossible.  Hey, I'm totally real here.  I'm  not the best 'read it everyday' person in the world.  But I love how it comes to life when I read it in a short period of time.  I love how I read really wanting to get more out of it.  I love how when I'm finished reading it, I find a quiet place to kneel and pray to know for myself once again if it is true like Moroni promised.  And then the Spirit testifies to me that, "Yes, T, you know it to be true".  That's why I love it so much.  This year I'm wanting to learn more about the Atonement as I read the pages of my favorite book.  I can't wait to share my thoughts with my missionary. 

In the scriptures we are told to "Feast upon the words of Christ".  That's what I love about the Book of Mormon.  It is ANOTHER testament of Jesus Christ.  I learn so much about him from the time he was prophecied of even coming to his resurrection and the time he visited the Americas.  Have I said how much I love this book?

I texted lots of friends and family today inviting them to join me for my "March Madness".  I was excited to see all the responses saying, "I'm in.".  Get's me so excited for other people to have this same neat experience.
Will you also join me? 
Do you need a Book of Mormon
I can promise you that if you commit to doing it, you willl love it.  You will find the time to read your seventeen pages a day.  It's about an hour a day.  That's with red pencil in hand and underlining.  :)

Off I go.  It's time to feast.
