Your testimony should be stronger than it was because you have applied many of the saving principles taught within this book.Your reading of the final chapter of the Book of Mormon should not be the last time you read and study this sacred book. Make the study of this book a lifetime pursuit that will help you “come unto Christ, and be perfected in him” (Moroni 10:32).
