Look what I found!

This year I had a goal to read all of my Relief Society Lessons before our class on Sunday. I want to be able to participate in the lesson. And I know there is not enough time to cover everything in the lesson, so I didn't want to miss out on some of it. But good intentions don't really give me enough time to do everything I want to do. I only was able to get a few of the lessons read before class. But then I discovered the solution! So I thought I'd share it with you. I found on the LDS.org website that they have our lesson manual available in all kinds of formats for us to use. Lessons I used the MP3 format and listened to the lesson while I did my work at home! So now I plan on keeping up with my "reading" while I am doing dishes or laundry. An I a genius or what!

I think I can probably do that with my scripture "reading" at times too. All the scriptures are available in audio form too. Scriptures and other Publications I suppose if I owned an Ipod I could put them on that too.

I know for me, reading the actual book is way better than just hearing it while I am working. So I still will do my best to make time for actual scripture study. But in the meantime, I can listen to the scriptures, and my lessons on my way too busy times at home.

That is a good idea. Although, I would have to do it when no kids were around so I could actually listen.

Ooh, great idea! I need to start reading these lessons, since I miss them all in primary...

Well aren't you clever?! I have an ipod but I don't even really know how to use it. But what a great idea! Sometimes if you can at least HEAR something, it's better than nothing at all. Thanks for the great advice!

I probably would listen to the scriptures more if the Book of Mormon wasn't voiced by Bruce Lindsey and since I hear his voice enough already, its just seems weird.

I may try to use these sometime. Thanks!
