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
