Hinckley Challenge


First, I just want to say a few things. President Hinckley's death never really hit me until church yesterday and then watching his funeral afterwards. I got teared-up in Sacrament meeting when we started singing the closing hymn "God Be With You 'Til We Meet Again." Whoever chose that song was a little cruel...jk...I couldn't sing though. I just sat there and read the words. What an amazing man and how lucky I am to have lived during his day. One of the things that stands out in my mind is his amazing relationship with his wife and how sweet they always were to each other. I hope that I can better myself because of him.

I just saw this on my friends blog and thought what a great idea it was and wanted to share with all of you. I know I am going to try and do it, you should too.

There's a challenge to read the Book of Mormon in 97 days (his age when he died). The people who started the challenge are trying to get everyone to start on the same day. Here are the details:

Go to www.hinckleychallenge.com and create an account (free, of course). On Feb 4, 2008 (TODAY) begin your reading. Each day you read, log on and record what page number you are on. It even shows you how many pages you need to read that day to keep you on track...pretty nifty.

So will you join me in this challenge?

Hey girl! Thanks for you comment. I cant wait for our boys to be able to play together. Im doing the challange and Im really excited about it since I have been a real slacker lately on reading the book of mormon. Im not much of a reader so this is a real fun and motivating time to do it!
