Hinckley Challenge

There are a bunch of members of the LDS church who are honoring their beloved prophet, President Hinckley, who died at age 97, by reading the Book of Mormon in 97 days. The challenge began on Feb. 4th, to end on May 10th. Even if you are behind, you can still do this! If you want to check it out, go to www.hinckleychallenge.com

Brent & I just started yesterday, so we're a bit behind, but we are excited about the motivation this gives us to read the scriptures more consistently together. It reminds me of when President Hinckley asked the members of the church to read the Book of Mormon before the end of the year. Do you remember the power that we all felt as we joined together as a world-wide membership to accept his challenge?

Here's my chart from the website, to give you an idea of how you can track your progress. Hope you join!
