Covering All Your Bases
Here is a handy scripture tip for anyone who has wanted to read the Bible or D&C but felt guilty because they were not reading the Book of Mormon every day. The way my ward RS president handles it with her husband is they jointly read a full chapter or two from the Bible or D&C. After they discuss and ponder those chapters, then they open their Book of Mormon. They turn to the designated chapter (apparently they read in chronological order), but instead of reading the entire chapter, they each choose a verse or two they have previously high-lighted to read and discuss. By using this strategy they were able to read the Old Testament, a goal they had long wanted to accomplish, yet still keep up on their Book of Mormon study.
Scripture of the Day: Deuteronomy 6:7
