Thirty Days of Thanks - Day 11 - November 11
The first time I read The Book of Mormon by myself was when I was fourteen years old. There were many places in the book where I felt lost, but I do remember Lehi's dream about the tree with the fruit that was desirable above all other fruit and I remember the chapters about Christ visiting the people of The Book of Mormon.
Not long after I finished the account of Christ's visit, I had a dream that I was there as he ascended into heaven and I saw him. It was a very profound dream and I woke up feeling a deep love for my Savior.
I've read this sacred book many times since and each time I'm filled with that peaceful assurance that this book comes from God and is absolutely true. With each reading, I understand new things and I see parallels that help me understand the world today. There are lessons and warnings and beautiful stories of courage and righteousness. I really love this book.
If any of you would like a copy of The Book of Mormon to read yourself, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you a copy as a gift from me. There's a good chance you'll come to love it as much as I do.
