Well. The past two posts have been deeply spiritual, so I kinda decided to follow the trend at least one more time. I am taking a Doctrine and Covenants class this semester. And I am loving it so so much. I enjoy doing the hw, and I feel like I am actually learning things that are important to me. As I was studying for the test this evening, I came across a little testimony quiz. I know that I should probably work harder to strengthen my testimony. How about you?

1.What are the greatest challenges to your testimony?
2.When was your testimony the strongest? What were the activities that you were involved in? Who were your companions?
3.Has your testimony increased or decreased during the last year?
4.Has your testimony increased or decreased because of your experience at BYU?
5.What has been the greatest influence upon your testimony?
6.What is the relationship of study, reason, faith and revelation and testimony?
