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.

Alma 56-57

Truth be told, I'm tired today. I haven't reviewed the chapters enough to ask any questions. But I did like this from the class member study guide:

• From whom did the young Ammonite warriors learn to have such great faith and courage? (See Alma 56:47–48; see also Alma 53:21; 57:21.) Why is it important for children to know the strength and certainty of their parents’ testimonies?

Study the following scriptures about motherhood:

Alma 56:47–48

1 Samuel 1:27–28

Genesis 24:60

Proverbs 1:8

Exodus 20:12

Moses 4:26

  • • The young Ammonites asked the prophet Helaman to be their leader (Alma 53:19; 56:1, 5). How did they respond to the commands they received? (See Alma 57:21.) What are some specific things you must do to follow the prophet “with exactness”?
Please overlook the formatting errors. I just cut and pasted. Happy studying!

Julie, do you need help moderating this for a while? I'm caught up on the reading. I'd help if you want me to.
