I have been doing a lot of reading on the Topical Guide entries for the Sanctity of the Body and the Body as the Temple of God. I have been studying the "do's" of the Word of Wisdom, and how modern nutritional science is just now starting to catch up to Latter-Day prophecy.

I got kind of stuck on the statement in verse 19 that God's course is an eternal round... But I have got it now - it means that God is unending eternally. Like the wedding ring symbolizes unending love.

Hi Jen,

I just post what I read here... It helps me too make sure too read my sciptures every day and makes me accountable... I wasn't very good about reading my sciptures most of my life and two years ago I started reading and recording them... In Aug of 2007 I started recording here and on LDS Ladies too and have not missed a day.

I know its from recording each day that has helped me and I've been so blessed by doing so:)

That is so great your doing it with your children, I think it would be a neat idea if you were too set up a chart for the family and take turns recording what you read so the children would get use too reading and recording, or even their own little notebook :) I can't believe the difference its made for me!! Just a thought... Wish I would have done it with mine (long ago)! LOL

Have fun reading the scriptures !

Hugs
Jeana

So, what is happening here... do you guys just post what you read in this forum? I'm working on the New Testament this year for my own personal study and after I get done with that, I'm going to go through the "Preach My Gospel" handbook to kinda train myself to be a better missionary. I'm in Luke at the moment. I love to just read and then if I want more information on things I spend time looking up different subjects. I'm looking forward to this thread if you guys don't mind me butting in!

My kids and I are working on the Book of Mormon too... we are almost done with 2 Nephi. We got that new Book of Mormon for Families for Christmas and it is WONDERFUL! Have you guys seen it? It really helps with the kids explaining different phrases and words and giving background on different passages and stuff... pretty cool!

Ok.. I'm done rambling... let me know what this thread is intended for.

I will do what I need to do, in order to do what I want to do.

I feel like I am not reading as much as you ladies, but as I mentioned before, I have recently learned that I need to go very slowly. I think that the main thing is that I work to be faithful in my scripture reading, and do it EVERY day. I'm working harder at that since I started posting in this thread.

Ohhh I didn't take it bad at all, I was just saying how I felt... I have taken notes also for a long time, (on anything)LOL

Another thing I heard was when you read the scriptures and all of a sudden you don't know what you've read too go back and think of the last thing you read and ponder it... many times its the Spirit trying too teach you something and if you just keep reading you'll miss it... I have found that too be true on many occasions...

Same thing when your asleep and you wake up with a thought or dream you should write it down...

WOW! That is really wonderful!

Actually, I got the idea of taking notes on the scriptures from a talk in Sacrament Meeting. It has really opened up the scriptures to me! I didn't mean to imply that simply reading them wasn't as good a way to study them - it just doesn't seem to work for me.

I so appreciate your faithfulness in keeping this scripture study thread going, through thick and thin!

I think there's many ways too study the scriptures and you just have too find the right ways for you...
I think its great too just read them, as you are still taking it in... and I found that everytime I read them I learn something I didn't even notice from other readings.
They have a lot of books out there that take you verse by verse and then explain the meaning too you that is very helpful.
For myself I read the standard works all together and then I study one of those books so of course its slower paced with that book...

A wonderful website too go too is
readthescriptures.com (Its a lds website)
you set up your schedule and they will e-mail your daily scriptures and then I write them on here... so it makes me accountable in two different ways, Last year I never missed a day and I know its come from doing this website that I got into this routine...
I read the standard works twice (actually the book of mormon and d&C 3 times) all last year, Talk about blessing my life... :)

I am reading 1 Nephi 3.

I had to slow waaaay down, and take notes in order to get the blessings from feasting on the scriptures. Before, I would read and read, and wonder why I wasn't learning anything new. The problem was with how I was doing it.
