Finished the Book of Mormon!

We finished the Book for Mormon as a family this week!  What a great feeling it is.  We talked with the kids about Moroni's challenge and said this is for you.  Our three oldest children resolved to pray about the Book to find out for themselves if it is correct.  It was a really spiritual scripture study as we bore our testimonies of how important these words are.  We decided that we would begin it again because in the introduction it says:  "Concerning this record the Prophet Joseph Smith said: “I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.”

We are going to celebrate by going to the JumpZone.  It's a new Trampoline Park.  We have never been but have heard it is a lot of fun for kids and families.  

I'm grateful for my parents starting this tradition of reading scriptures as a family and then celebrating through a fun activity together.  Thanks mom and dad!
