1. Begin your study with prayer

You will get the most out of your study with God’s help. Begin your prayer by addressing God. Then ask Him for wisdom and understanding as you read. Ask for specific guidance. When you’re done, end your prayer, “In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.”

2. Consider studying by topic

Start with the resources found in the topical guide at the back of your copy of the Book of Mormon. It lists common topics and associated scripture verses. You can then use the related words to expand your study.

3. Read with someone else

Family members and friends can enhance your study. When you have questions, you can discuss together. You can share verses with each other that are especially meaningful. You can always study with the missionaries as well.
