Why The Book of Mormon is True

So this week was a little bit slow.  Which was a bummer because the week before was awesome, but we are pressing forward.  It takes time to get into the rhythmn of things, but we just keep swimming.  

  Some good things this week, a dog peed on my companion XD not gonna lie, it was probably the highlight of my week.....she didn´t think it was that funny.  But other than that.  We had a zone conference and in that zone conference we talked a lot about the Book of Mormon and the proofs we have that it is true (besides an answer from God)  But it was great and just really is a reminder that it just makes sense.  Everything in the gospel, from Joseph Smith and the First Vision to temples to serving missions, makes sense.  There would be absolutely no reason for members of the church to do the things they do, to sacrifice time, money, school, friends, family, etc. for this church if they didn´t have a firm belief that it were true.  And the only way to obtain that belief is from God.  And all that belief and testimony begins and ends with the Book of Mormon.  It´s true.  If you have read it, you know, and can keep reading to continually strengthen the testimony that you have.  If you haven´t read it....what are you waiting for.  It´s not going to hurt anything to read it and ask God if it´s true.  He will answer you and you will know for yourself.  God loves us and will never lie, so the answer that we receive will be the truth.  To all my friends and family to whom this applies, I extend the same invitation to you that is found in the book.  "I invite you to read the Book of Mormon, to ponder in your heart the message it contains and then to ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ if the book is true"  I testify that it is a true book written by prophets of God and that it is the foundation of this church. Everything we believe stands, or falls depending on this book.  If you want to know, just ask Heavenly Father.  I know he will answer all those who read and ask with faith.  I love you all!  Have a great week!  

Darn those animals!!
All ready to head out.

Mom, I was going to send this kitty to you in the mail because it was so beautiful.  I knew you would thank me!!
