I heard today via Sherrie's blog about a website that just might change my life forever!
First let me say that I really do have a testimony of the benefits of daily scripture reading. That having been said, there are only 2 times in my life that I have been successful in maintaining daily scripture study. The first was the months before, after, and during my 18 month mission to New Jersey. The second was the 2 years I spent teaching early morning seminary.
I don't know exactly why it has been so hard for me. Maybe because I'm the type of person that seems to always stay busy. It's hard for me to sit down and read, and especially now that I have kids awake for most of my awake hours, when I do slow down and read at night, I usually want to read something more frivolous - like my current read: Brisingr.
However, on Sherrie's blog yesterday she posted a link to a website called www.ReadTheScriptures.com that will email you your daily scripture reading assignment to you. Considering I am ALWAYS on my email at least once a day (with the possible exception of Sundays) this is a bonus for me! I'm sure these have been out for a while, but I didn't even think to look for them, thus my excitement in this new "find". And it appears that I can even be part of a discussion group (if desired), highlight meaningful passages, track my progress, and even listen to the audio of the scriptures while I'm folding laundry. Can it get any better than this? We'll see...
