President Hinckley has counseled parents: “Read to your children. Read the story of the Son of God. Read to them from the New Testament. Read to them from the Book of Mormon. It will take time, and you are very busy, but it will prove to be a great blessing in your lives as well as in their lives. And there will grow in their hearts a great love for the Savior of the world, the only perfect man who walked the earth. He will become to them a very real living being, and His great atoning sacrifice as they grow to manhood and womanhood, will take on a new and more glorious meaning in their lives” (quoted in Church News, 6 Dec. 1997, 2)

All wrapped up

It is Sunday, which means week two has disappeared behind me in a cloud of dust made up of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, dirty clothes, a trip interstate and a few scriptures thrown in for good measure.

Dear old Lehi has not played as prominent part in my toddler's life as much as I would have liked this week. However, I am determined to stick with this project. Mostly because I don't want to be labeled a "quitter"!

LQ and I did sit down this week and read and discussed the scripture "having been born of goodly parents".

One thing I have discovered is that example plays a vital part in the process of LQ's learning. Therefore, along with reading with LQ, I will make a point of doing my personal scripture study while LQ is awake and aware of what I am doing. Maybe this will encourage a little more attention from LQ.


  1. Maybe it's time to venture out of the box. Fast forward to Ammon. Chop off some bad guys' arms and legs - that'll get the ol' creative juices flowing!

    Then do King Noah and Abinadi. Spend the week with this bad dude telling everyone what to do and making the whole family miserable, and then on Saturday, burn him at the stake.

    Gosh, Helen, what would you do without me??

  2. I am not sure what I'd do without you DeNae. I would probably laying flat on the floor crying about how rough my life is!

    I AM looking forward to the part of the Lehi/Nephi story where Laban is killed. It's just not coming fast enough!
