Why is it so hard for me to read my scriptures? I know I am blessed when I do. But every time I pick them up and read them, it's the most tedious chore. I'm just so burnt out on them. I still read them. I clug through them, but it never gets better. I love to read practically anything else: books, magazines, cereal boxes, road signs. But my scriptures, man. I don't know what it is. My reading system is lurch, wander, and stray. I keep thinking if I keep doing it it'll click. But it doesn't. I try different ways of studying. I try reading straight through like a book, or stopping at each verse and following footnotes, or following up one topic. Anyway, I'm sure I'll get a flurry of "helpful" suggestions now. So bring it on, I guess. I could use the help.
