When Brady returned home Sunday morning he talked and talked about all the fun they had and then he crashed. He slept most of the day and did homework from missing school on Friday. Sunday was a recovering day to be wide awake and ready for school on Monday.
It is exciting that he can be part of a team and enjoy these little trips. It bonds the team together. They root for each other and encourage them on. Everyone is a winner, no matter when the crossed the finish line. The goal is to have a better time (personal best) each race.
The coaches asked each person to bring an item to share .... something like a good luck charm. Brady forgot to bring an item. But in his backpack was his Book of Mormon and he decided to share that.
He told the group that the item he was going to share was the Book of Mormon. He said there were 2 main purposed for reading the Book of Mormon. They were 1. To be enlightened and 2. to be uplifted. Then he also explained that his Scout Leader had challenged the boys to read the Book of Mormon every day for 5 weeks and if they did he would cook them a crepe.
I love this challenge to help with personal scripture study. We read the scriptures everyday as a family .... but to give your children the desire to have personal scriptures study is a challenge. I'm thankful for wise leaders who help inspire our children. His leader is Brian Mecham and he is the best!
