This is post 5 of 5 in the series “Enhance Your Scripture Study” I hate lists of things to try, do, or remember. I think that for most people it’s totally impractical to remember or apply them. If a post boasts “5000 Ways to Improve Your Memes” I won’t give it a 2nd thought. If it offers 5, I might think about clicking it. Only 3? Now we’re talkin’! So I’m apologizing in advance for this list. However, these are carefully selected resources that I use myself, and I think you’ll find very helpful for your Book of Mormon...Read More
