Abby: When are we going to start reading the Book of Mormon as a family?
Me: ummmm, ummmm.....When do you want to start reading the Book of Mormon?
Abby: How about tonight?
And that is how it started.
No more excuses.
Off and on we have been reading the little picture Book of Mormon, but I guess the girls are ready for the real thing.
Our goal is to read a chapter a day. So far we are off to a good start and hoping to have it finished by the end of the year. We thought about trying to read in the morning, but since we all have such a struggle getting out of bed in the morning, bedtime sounded like a better plan. Abby and Syd are doing a great job of reading and following along. There are some big words in there.
I designed and ordered this sticky wall poster and it is a great incentive for the girls. They fight every night over who gets to color in the circle. At first I wanted to put it inside a closet or some place out of sight, but Derek said it needed to be out and visible if it was going to work....and he is right. There's nothing like a giant poster to remind us everyday of our progress.
Due to popular demand, I've had the poster reprinted and it is now available for you to purchase here. I'm so excited for everyone to get this great poster in their home and start tracking their reading progress. It is perfect for family and personal study.
Please let me know if you have any questions and happy reading!
