At the end of May each of the auxiliaries in my ward were given a challenge. We were asked to read the entire Book of Mormon by June 28th. I knew it was going to be a hard task, but I tried my hardest to do the challenge.
I knew I needed something to help me track my progress and to help me know what page/chapter I should be on. I looked around on the internet, but didn’t see anything for 28 days…plus I wanted it to look cute. 🙂 I decided to create my own. As I searched on the web I came across this great bookmark and this great reading chart that gave me some inspiration of what I would like my bookmark to look like.
After working on it for awhile I finally got it how I wanted it. Here’s what it looks like:
I’ve had to make a few changes due to typos and missing chapters,etc. But I think it’s fixed and ready to go.
I ended up not completing the challenge. 🙁 I started at the beginning of Alma and was able to finish the Book of Mormon and got to about 1 Nephi 12. I was sad I wasn’t able to complete it in 28 days, but I was grateful that I completed the Book of Mormon from where I began. Before I actually began the challenge I knew it was going to take some time, but I thought…’19 pages a day, I do that all the time with novels I read, this shouldn’t be too bad.’ But it was a lot of reading! I knew I was behind by a few days, so I decided to listen to the Book of Mormon as I drove back from Utah one weekend. I was sure I got caught up…nope, I didn’t. haha
Even though I wasn’t able to complete the Book of Mormon in the 28 day time period, I still enjoyed the time I took to read it. My testimony was strengthened, and I grew a greater desire to read it. I’m thinking of trying again in a month or so.
Do you want to give it a try? Just print out my bookmark below using the links below.

I hope you enjoy my Book of Mormon challenge bookmarks and use them for your own 28 day challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
