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.

He Did Expound All Things Unto Them

I've obviously been seriously slacking over here lately. Thanks, TaLaisa, for keeping us going with Living Scripture. I'd like to continue that this week, if you'll get us a new talk to study.

As for Book of Mormon study, our ward is in 3 Nephi 22-26. As we have from the start, I think we'll just keep with my ward's schedule, so as to keep the confusion low.

There are 5 chapters to study this week and so I should be posting one per day, but I am going to ease myself back into the habit of moderating by having us study all the chapters as one post and comment as we go. If you find something in a particular chapter you like, comment about it! You can always add more later.

Here are the study suggestions from the Class Member Study Guide:

  • • After quoting prophecies of Isaiah, Jesus commanded the people to “search these things diligently” (3 Nephi 23:1). What does it mean to search the scriptures instead of merely read them?

  • • In his record, Mormon included only “the lesser part” of what Jesus taught the people (3 Nephi 26:8). How can we receive “the greater things”? (See 3 Nephi 26:9.)

  • • Read 3 Nephi 26:19–21. How can we follow this example in our marriages, families, wards, and stakes?

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts as we study! And stay tuned for a Living Scripture post, as well.
