31 days 1 day late

At my divorce support group the leader told us about reading the book of Proverbs in 31 days as it has 31 chapters and there are 31 days in August. I was thinking about this on July 31, but totally spaced it Aug 1st. I will read 2 chapters tonight to make up and hopefully will be able to really do it.

I've started reading The Book of Mormon again, with a new book- looking for verses and doctrines about the Atonement, because of this posted on my nephews blog and now on my quote blog:

There is an imperative need for each of us to strengthen our understanding of the significance of the Atonement of Jesus Christ so that it will become an unshakable foundation upon which to build our lives. As the world becomes more devoid of foundational standards and as honor, virtue, and purity are increasingly cast aside in the pursuit of appetite, our understanding of and faith in the Atonement of Jesus Christ will provide strength and capacity needed for a successful life. It will also bring confidence in times of trial and peace in moments of turmoil.

I energetically encourage you to establish a personal study plan to better understand and appreciate the incomparable, eternal, infinite consequences of Jesus Christ’s perfect fulfillment of His divinely appointed calling as our Savior and Redeemer. Profound personal pondering of the scriptures accompanied by searching, heartfelt prayer will fortify your understanding of and appreciation for His priceless Atonement. Another powerful way to learn of Jesus Christ and His Atonement is through consistent temple attendance.


I'm also trying to keep on with the New Testament, but due to my depression it's hard. I like this sight to help, specifically Kevin Hinckleys power point presentations that are so masterfully done.
