These thoughts go perfectly with the scripture over at Word Art Wednesday this week. I've made a printable that you may use for PERSONAL use if you'd like to. Just left click to enlarge, right click and save!
Here it is~
One of the ways that I have always been helped in learning and understanding the gospel is by having personal and family scripture study and prayer each day. It is so wonderful to sit down with your family and to discuss the scriptures that you are reading. Many precious memories have been made in my immediate family and with my DH and I as we study the scriptures together each night before we go to bed. When I was younger, my wonderful father would call us all in for prayer and scripture study before we would eat our dinner together. I am so thankful for his righteous perseverance in not listening to our griping and complaining about wanting to eat! ;) Prayer and scripture study are also a wonderful way to finish up a day! I don't have any specific stories about scripture study from my childhood, but I do have one from this last week as we've had my two nieces (aged 3 and 1) visiting us from Utah.
Our 3 year old niece likes to participate in scripture study and will "read" a verse for use when it is her turn. She will repeat exactly what she is told to recite and her sweet little voice sounds so beautiful as she speaks the words of God. I imagine that this is how our Father in Heaven feels each time we listen and preach His word to those around us and in our families. We are all God's children and it must make Him incredibly happy to see each of us learning what He has given us each day. I encourage you (and myself) to do a little better each day at learning and applying the gospel to our daily lives. God bless! :)
