This app originated in the form of an untitled, unattributed Book of Mormon reading guide with daily quotes and questions. This book was given to everyone in my ward here in Taipei, Taiwan. We were all challenged to complete it in the 100 days of summer. We were all very impressed with the experience it brought. Being filled with the spirit every day from pondering over the quotes and questions while reading through the assignments was just what we all needed.
I was so impressed with the book I thought it would be great if there were an electronic version that I could put on my phone and keep track of personal progress. That's when I had the idea that I could make it into an app. So, I started learning how to make an iPhone app just so I could put this book in the AppStore and help spread the word of God.
I hope you enjoy using RED100 as much as I did, and I know that if you truly put the app to good use, not only will you finish the Book of Mormon in 100 days, but you’ll also strengthen your relationship with the Lord through continual scripture study.
With the new year comes new goals and aspirations. One of ours here at LDS Living is to help you feel the Spirit through reading the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon 365 instagram account is the perfect way to split your Book of Mormon study into bite-sized sections for every day of the year. And if you're anything like us and need a little extra help pondering the reading, BofM 365 also includes helpful questions to make your reading more meaningful. Even better, if you're on a mobile device, you can double tap the picture once you've read the passage of scripture as a way to easily keep track of how far you've read each day.
This account was originally created at the beginning of 2014 by Latter-day Saints Ben and Chelsea Prince as a way to help them with their own scripture study. It has since grown to inspire more than 100,000 subscribers to study the scriptures daily.
