Enjoy the season by reading a scripture a day from the Book of Mormon or the Pearl of Great Price that relates to the birth and ministry of Jesus, the Christ. You can come to understand more about the Savior by studying prophecies made by Moses, Lehi, Nephi, Mosiah, Alma, and Helaman. All of these references teach about the events leading up to Christ’s birth and His sacred ministry to the children of men. Focus on the reason for the season each day as you feast on the scriptures.
