This year for Family Home Evening we are studying the Book of Mormon. Our first FHE of the year we took on a challenge.
"The Book of Mormon will change your life." President Ezra Taft Benson
We wanted to see if that was really true.
We all agreed to participate in a daily reading of The Book of Mormon.
This quote is a powerful resource for our family:
"There is a power in the book which will begin to flow into your lives the moment you begin serious study of the book. You will find greater power to resist temptation. You will find the power to avoid deception. You will find the power to stay on the strait and narrow path. The Scriptures are called the "words of Life" (D&C 84:85), and nowhere id that more true than it is on the Book of Mormon. When you begin to hunger and thirst after those words, you will find life in greater and greater abundance." Ezra Taft Benson
So.. the kids have to wake up a few minutes earlier, and we always have cold cereal... but we are finding life in great and greater abundance. What peace the words of the scriptures can bring in to your home.
We hope to complete the Book of Mormon by the time Jex is baptized. We have a year and a half. That is such an attainable goal, and he is reading some of the verses himself. It has been a great challenge and blessing for our family.
