The Hinckley Challenge

Honoring our beloved prophet and remembering his teachings - Read the Book of Mormon in 97 days.

I just found out about this HERE and I think it's a wonderful idea!!

"President Hinckley often stressed our making the Book of Mormon part of our lives. He was 97 when he passed away, and we would like to celebrate his life and teachings by reading the Book of Mormon in 97 days."

All you have to do is go HERE and click the "Join me" button to create a username, so that you can keep track of your progress. You also have the option of adding your graph to your blog! Pretty cool, huh?!!

So, it starts today Sunday, February 3, 2008 and Ends Sunday, May 11, 2008. All you have to do is read 5.42 pages per day. Kind of an odd fraction, but I guess you could read 5 pages one day and 6 the next. Or just read 6 pages each day, then you'll be a little ahead. Whatever it breaks down to, I think it's awesome and totally worth it!!

One more way to show our love and respect for President Gordon B. Hinckley. Anyone else want to join in??
