Forty Days Closer to Jesus Christ
Book of Mormon Reading Program


“By doing so (reading the Book of Mormon) we will fill and refresh our minds with the constant flow of the ‘water’ which Jesus said would be in us– “a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:14). Wemust obtain a continuing supply of this water if we are to resist evil and retain the blessings of being born again...
“And so, I counsel you, my beloved brothers and sisters and friends everywhere, to make reading in the Book of Mormon a few minutes each day a lifelong practice... I feel certain that if, in our homes, parents will read from the Book of Mormon prayerfully and regularly, both bythemselves and with their children, the spirit of that book will come to permeate our homes and all who dwell therein. The spirit of reverence will increase; mutual respect and consideration for each other will grow. The spirit of contention will depart. Parents will counsel their children in greater love and wisdom. Children will be more responsive and submissive to that counsel. Righteousnesswill increase. Faith, hope, and charity– the pure love of Christ– will abound in our homes and lives, bringing in their wake peace, joy, and happiness.”
(Marion G. Romney, Conference Report, April 1960, pp110-113)

My Book of Mormon Daily Reading Program Will Begin:

— Day 1:

Date: Nov2, 2011

Read: 1 Nephi 1-10 Mark & Ponder: 1 Nephi 3:7

Scripture of the day:
“..Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.” (Ezekiel 37:19)

Thought for the day:
“There is a book we need tostudy daily, both as individuals and as family, namely the Book of Mormon. I love that book. It is the book that will get a person nearer to God by abiding by its precepts than any other book. Let us continually reread the Book of Mormon so that we might more fully come to Christ, be committed to Him, centered in Him, and consumed in Him.” (Pres. Ezra Taft Benson)

— Day 2:

Date:Nov 3, 2011

Read: 1 Nephi 11-15 Mark & Ponder: 1 Nephi 15:34

Scripture of the day:
“..I say unto you that if ye will enter in by the way, and receive the Holy Ghost, it will show unto you all things what ye should do.” (2 Nephi 32:5)

Thought for the day:
“God is weaving his tapestry according to his own grand design. All flesh is in his hands. It is not our prerogative tocounsel him. It is our responsibility and our opportunity to be at peace in our minds and in our hearts, and to know that he is God, that this is his work, and that he will not permit it to fail.” (Gordon B. Hinkley)


— Day 3:

Date: Nov 4, 2011

Read: 1 Nephi 16-19 Mark & Ponder: 1Nephi 19:23

Scripture of the day:
“Behold I stand at the door and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I
will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” (Revelations 3:20)

Thought for the day:
“The promise is made to everyone. There is no discrimination, no favored few, but the Lord has not promised to crash the door. He stands and knocks. If we donot listen, he will not sup with us nor give answer to our prayers. We must learn how to listen, grasp, interpret, understand. The Lord stands knocking. He never retreats. But he will never force himself upon us. If our distance from him increases, it is we who have moved and not the Lord.” (Pres. Spencer W. Kimball)

— Day 4:

Date: Nov 5, 2011
