I came upon a fabulous resource that I want to share with you!
LDS.About.com has what is called a "Scripture Study Calculator".
You can type in the time frame you would like to read the Book of Mormon, Bible, Pearl of Great Price and/or The Doctrine and Covenants. It automatically calculates how many pages you need to read to reach your goal!
Hop on over and try it out...

I gave a Family Home Evening lesson on Angry Birds last year and my kids still remember the lessons they've learned from it. This taught me that children can learn powerful lessons from movies, games, etc. when we find the good and use it as a teaching tool.
Here are some fun examples using Disney movies that I wanted to share with you today!

Scripture: 2 Nephi 4:15 15 And upon these I write the things of my soul, and many of the which are engraven upon the plates of brass. For my soul delighteth in the , and my heart pondereth them, and writeth them for the learning and the profit of my children.
Song: Scripture Power
-scriptures for each family member
I started off by reading this quote by President Marion G. Romney...
“I feel certain that if, in our homes, parents will read from the Book of Mormon prayerfully and regularly, both by themselves and with their children, the spirit of that great book will come to permeate our homes and all who dwell therein. The spirit of reverence will increase; mutual respect and consideration for each other will grow. The spirit of contention will depart. Parents will counsel their children in greater love and wisdom. Children will be more responsive and submissive to the counsel of their parents. Righteousness will increase. Faith, hope, and charity—the pure love of Christ—will abound in our homes and lives, bringing in their wake peace, joy, and happiness” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1980, 90; or May 1980, )."
Discuss what each wordstrip means and how they would make your family feel.
Show the different scriptures and explain what each one contains (example: The Holy Bible and how the old testament talks about the creation of this world and testimonies of the prophets).
We also wrote some of our favorite scripture stories underneath each book.
Make a plan to have Family Scripture Study using these suggestions...
Scripture Chase - for older children
Draw picture of favorite scripture story - younger children
This Family Home Evening lesson has honestly changed our lives for the better as a family. We have been implementing it in our home every morning (even though 6:30am can be a chore). Our family has children ages (5, 7, 11, and 13) and we are seeing these blessings come to pass in our lives and it's only been one week!

I had so much fun making an M&M Christmas Poem that I decided to do an Easter version, too!
I've included two sizes of printables for tags or to put in a frame and display with little cups of M&M's.
