An individual that is a Mormon will tell you that their church is a strong encouragement in their reading of their book of Mormon on a daily basis. Even though the Prophets support this it is not uncommon for a Mormon to get taken up with the other aspects of life and forget to read their book. They do not take away from the emphasis that the book of Mormon is what the truth of their church is based on and it is critical reading material. It is extremely an important that for a Mormon to make the reading of the book of Mormon a part of their daily life

A Mormon may question themselves when they are not fulfilling their reading task as to why it is such a difficult aspect for them to do. They may put it down to a lack of faith or perhaps not having any purpose and then there are those that maybe think that it is too boring or that there are other pressing matters. It can even come down to daily living superseding the requirement for reading the book.

There are things that the Mormon could do to help overcome these stumbling blocks.

It is important to create a daily challenge in order for one to continue and complete what they are hoping to gain.
