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.

Living Scripture - Even a Child...

This week's conference talk is Even a Child Can Understand by Elder Gerald Causse.

"God...has ensured that the truths regarding God are understandalbe to all His children, whatever their level of education and intellectual faculty."

I have a child getting baptized this month so this talk in particular spoke to me. It talks of how the gospel is understandable for all. Elder Causse says, "...At eight years of age a child can have sufficient understanding to enter the waters of baptism and make a covenant with God with complete understanding."

When you have a minute, read the talk. Ponder it, then come back and post your thoughts. What parts struck you in particular?
