Time to Read Tuesday: Update on New Testament

I am getting there. I am actually a lot closer than I was last week I am in the last 1/3 of the books. I have had to take a bit of a break this week, due to general conference and being just plain busy. I am going to really hit the books this week and get part finished.

By the way, General Conference was awesome this weekend. If you want to read the talks you can go to lds.org. I plan on going back to re-read/listen to all of them. How much do you really get from it when the kids are running around the living room being noisy, I really try to get something out of it.

I have been learning a lot about the life of Christ. I new at least some parts of the stories and new somewhat of the things that Christ went through for us. I can say that I didn't really know everything and realize how horrible it all was.

Matt has been helping me understand all of it. Matt went on a LDS mission to New Mexico, so I always view him as the expert. I know that there are people that understand the scriptures better than Matt, but compared to me, Matt is an expert. I am so grateful to have such a knowledgeable Daddy for my babies, he can make sure that they grow up with the knowledge they need to understand and love the scriptures.

I will be honest that there is still quite a bit that I don't get, the only way to get past that is to continue reading, praying, and studying the scriptures. Obviously I will continue to do this after I finish all of this reading, but at a much slower pace. I want to spend a lot more time on each book to make all the important connections.
