Book of Mormon

As I have been on my mission I have truly been able to see the blessings that come from having not only the Bible but also The Book of Mormon, this volume of scripture that helps us understand further the teachings of our Savior Jesus Christ and how we can become more like Him. Not only does it testify of Christ but it helps us understand the Bible. I have come to know for myself about the truthfulness of this book through reading it and pondering of the teachings it contains. I love to know that no matter how awful of a day I am having or no matter what I am going through if I take the time to read from its pages it gives me the comfort and hope that the gospel of Jesus Christ gives. I know that I am not alone and I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and that is why He has made it available to us, all of His children to have this volume of scripture, THE BOOK OF MORMON. I invite all of you that read this blog post to take the invitation that we find in the the Book of Mormon and put it into practice. 

 Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how amerciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and bponder it in your chearts.
 And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would aask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not btrue; and if ye shall ask with a csincere heart, with dreal intent, having efaith in Christ, he will fmanifest the gtruthof it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.
 And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may aknow the btruth of all things.

I know that as you read from this book and ponder its words you will be able to see of the truthfulness of it. I know that it can heal broken hearts and make people whole again. You may ask, "how do you know this? " I know this because I have come to know for myself it has brought me hope, love and especially a sense of belonging knowing that I am a child of my Heavenly Father and that I AM NEVER ALONE! 

" Whoso treasureth up my word shall not be deceived and in the last days neither your heart nor your faith with fail you "
