Scripture Study Steps

This would be fun to add to the scripture study supplies.  It's available as a printable by a VERY talented designer.  Leave her a comment as thanks!  She also takes requests for church hand outs.

Here is a link to a good article about effective scripture study that is geared to the youth of the church.  It was the inspiration for the bookmark.

Contention Will Depart

“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.” 
President Marion G. Romney, Apr. 1980, 90; or Ensign, May 1980, 67).

Greater Spirituality

More than at any time in our history, brothers and sisters, we have need for greater spirituality.
The way to develop greater spirituality is to feast on the words of Christ as revealed in the scriptures.

About Our Family

Well, hmmm...
We have seven kids (cutest kids ever, amiright?).
We are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
We are grateful for the blessings that come from trying to live the teachings of Jesus Christ.

We love and support the family as the greatest protection for children,
and as an integral part of God's Plan of Happiness for His children!

God bless you and your family!

 “When God wants a great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, 
he goes about it in a very unusual way. 
He doesn’t stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts.
 Instead, he has a helpless baby born, 
perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother. 
And then God puts the idea into the mother’s heart, 
and she puts it into the baby’s mind. 
And then God waits. 
The greatest forces in the world are not 
the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. 
The greatest forces in the world are babies.”

-E.T. Sullivan
As quoted by Gordon B. Hinckley in his Dec. 2007 address "These, Our Little Ones"
