Scripture Mastery Challenge

Chris and I have a new challenge.  We're both pretty excited about it!  We had been talking lately how we wished we knew scripture verses better and had them memorized more so.  About two weeks ago I decided that we should go through and learn and memorize the Seminary Scripture Mastery again.  I went through all of Seminary and learned these scriptures but didn't memorize all of them.  I had an idea of where they were for the scripture chases but never really KNEW them... if you know what I mean.

Seminary Scripture Mastery (for those who do not know) are 25 scriptures from the Standard Works.  The Standard Works are The Old Testament, New Testament, Book of Mormon, and Doctrine & Covenants.  So there are 100 scriptures in all.  These 100 scriptures are important and each teach very important gospel principles.  These scriptures are usually quoted the most and have AMAZING messages.  In addition to these scripture verses we are also re-learning the 13 Articles of Faith.  The 13 Articles of Faith were written and inspired by the Prophet Joseph Smith.  They are 13 explanations and the main principles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  FYI I'm going to KICK Chris' trash in the Articles of Faith because I know the primary songs that are the Articles of Faith put to music.  They're awesome!!

Here is how we are going to keep track of the scriptures we passed off.  We thought at first maybe we would have Bishop Roberts who is the Seminary Teacher in our ward be the one we would pass them off to but them decided we would just trust each other, HAHA.  We are not trying to make it a competition but more so just a way for us to grow spiritually in our knowledge of the gospel.  I'll keep you posted on how it goes!
