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.

JSH 1:8-17

In the class member study guide this is the question asked for the reading today:
What do these verses teach about how to receive personal revelation?
I like how Joseph starts out in verse 8 saying "my mind was called up to serious reflection and great uneasiness;" I think that often this is how the spirit nudges us to take action. I also loved how he found his answer in the scriptures. I think that this is also a lesson for us today in how to receive personal revelation. Verses in the scriptures can also come with power to our hearts.

I agree, Pam, I feel like the scriptures are often a source of inspiration, especially when I search them with the expectation of receiving answers to a a question.
