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)

Week 11: Chapter 10 - Jacob & Sherem

Book of Mormon
Chapter 10: Jacob & Sherem

Week 11 is almost over and I am only just writing this post. I apologise profusely. My only excuse is that LQ turned 2 today and I have been tied up doing stuff for her the past few days. She is officially an American citizen now which we are all excited about.

After reading through this week's story, I think that a great theme that we can study is testimony. Jacob bears his testimony to the people of Nephi and also to Sherem. Jacob 7:11 - "... Behold I say unto you that none of the prophets have written, nor prophesied, save they have spoken concerning this Christ."

So any activities that involve bearing my testimony or having LQ bear her testimony are going to be it. Because it is a tough thing for a little one that can barely speak to do, I have decided that we probably only have one or two activities that we do over and over throughout the week. One of which is to sing "I Belong to the Church of Jesus Christ".

I have to admit... a lot of my recent ideas have gone unused because LQ is enjoying sitting with me and flicking through my scriptures as I read a scripture to her. How has your toddler scripture reading time evolved?
