Elder J. Northcott

During the past two years I have developed a passion for reading my scriptures! Growing up i definitely struggled to have motivation to read my scriptures because I never could really understand them! So I started with a small goal to read a chapter a day! During that challenge I came across 2 Nephi 4:15 which reads: "And upon these I write the things of my soul, and many of the scriptures which are engraven upon the plates of brass. For my soul delighteth in the scriptures, and my heart pondereth them, and writeth them for the learning and the profit of my children". I wanted to gain a love and passion for them just like Nephi! I continued to read and finished the Book of Mormon. Still unsatisfied on how I felt while reading it. Feeling discouraged I decided to read it again! This time, it came easier! Words and lines started to pop off and have more meaning than it ever did before! I felt the spirit and could recieve revelation that came from reading the Book of Mormon! I gained a testimony and love for my saviour Jesus Christ! I could feel and know of God's love towards his children! I knew that obedience to God's commandments brings immediate and eternal blessings that will lead to eternal happiness! To those that struggled like me, remember this scripter! Alma 37:6 "Now ye may suppose that this is foolishness in me; but behold I say unto you, that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise". Start with small goals and it will grow to become great! - Elder Northcott
