Hiking and scriptures.

I wrote a post for the Mormon Channel about personal scripture study.  
Below are some of my thoughts.
You can read the full (short) article HERE.
My personal scripture study begins on the mountains above my home.
Up there, I exercise every day. I make my way there after dropping
my four children off at school. Before I begin my hike,
I choose a talk from LDS General Conference to listen to on my smartphone.
Sometimes I feel inspired to pick a special talk/topic and sometimes
 I just choose randomly.
No matter how diligent I am about personal scripture study,
it really doesn't do anything for me if I haven't prayed.
I pray for a personal understanding of the scriptures.
I pray that my heart will be softened and that
I can honestly use the principals I am being taught.
