15 seconds

A few weeks ago I had a wonderful conversation with my sister. We were sitting in the stairwell of her home and she was reviewing her Relief Society lesson for the next Sunday. She asked me if she could give it to me and I said yes.

She brought up something that was an epiphanic moment for me.

Reading your scriptures for 15 seconds a day, is better then not reading them at all.

I challenge those of you out there who are not reading your scriptures (just like me) to place a set of scriptures somewhere in your house where you will bump into them (bathroom, car, backpack, purse, couch, silverware drawer, etc.) and take just 15 seconds of your day to read.

Some days 15 seconds turns into 5 minutes, but don't worry if it doesn't.

Congratulations Toes!    
"I like your suggestion. It seems kind of selfish if a day goes by and we weren't able to take 15 seconds to read a verse. And some good in your day is definitely better than no good.

Day 534!! That's awesome! You are a great example and a strength to me to continue the fight for my own recovery. Thank you!!!"

"Are you battling a demon of addiction—tobacco or drugs, or the pernicious contemporary plague of ography? Whatever other steps you may need to take to resolve these concerns, come first to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Trust in heaven’s promises. In that regard Alma's testimony is my testimony: "I do know," he says, "that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions."
