Every year, we set new years resolutions. Some of them are wise and some are foolish, but most only last until mid-January. Why? Well, I could write about how we don’t actually set goals correctly, and I did last year (Click here for how to set goals and achieve them). But this year I wanted to focus on worthwhile goals. I looked to the Brethren and found 5 New Years Resolutions every Latter-day Saint should consider in 2017.
1st. Read The Book Of Mormon Cover To Cover This Year.
The thing that shocked me the most as a missionary is how many members had never actually read the Book of Mormon cover to cover! Our mission president told us that the average convert only reads 34 pages of the Book of Mormon before baptism! It does not matter if you are a new convert, or if you are like everyone else and working on your ongoing conversion. Strengthen your testimony by reading the Book of Mormon cover to cover this year.
- Tip. To reach this goal, strive to read the Book of Mormon every day, you can also listen to while driving or at the gym!
“Search the Book of Mormon and the words of the living prophets every day, every day, every day! It’s the key to spiritual survival and avoiding deception. Without it, we are spiritually lost.”
