The Book Of Mormon Is My Warm Blanket

For me, studying and teaching The Book of Mormon feels like sitting cross-legged under a cozy warm blanket, cuddled up on a soft bed with hot cocoa in hand, watching the snowflakes fall silently outside my window.

The Doctrine and Covenants feels like sitting on a semi-hard couch, legs crossed with a root beer and chips.

The New Testament has the feeling of me standing barefoot on cold concrete, wearing just shorts, and nothing to drink.

Studying and teaching the Old Testament feels like walking barefoot across a hot, rocky desert with a puffy, dry mouth, chapped lips and no water in sight.

Am I just crazy? Or does anyone else make associations with how they feel about studying certain scriptures?
