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.

MIA & New Testament Gospel Doctrine Reading

No, not the Mutual Improvement Association....just me, Missing In Action.  :)

It's been a busy couple of weeks with a short getaway with my husband, Halloween, and a cold virus running its course through our family.  My apologies for not getting anything up the last several days. 

For our New Testament Gospel Doctrine study this week, we're reading -

Lesson 41: “I Have Finished My Course”


1 and 2 Timothy; Titus

  • Why are some people “ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth”? (2 Timothy 3:7). How can we ensure that our learning brings us to a knowledge of the truth? How has learning the true doctrines of the gospel blessed your life?
  • What do you think it means to be “an example of the believers”? (1 Timothy 4:12). How can you be an example in each of the ways mentioned in 1 Timothy 4:12? How have you been influenced by someone who was “an example of the believers”?
  • In what sense is the love of money the “root of all evil”? (See 1 Timothy 6:7–10.) How can we ensure that we do not focus too much on money and other material wealth? (See 1 Timothy 6:17–19; Jacob 2:18–19.)

Suggestion for Family Discussion

Display several pictures, such as pictures from the Gospel Art Picture Kit or the Church magazines, that depict familiar scriptural accounts. Then sing a few hymns or Primary songs. After viewing each picture and singing each hymn or song, ask family members to suggest doctrines, or teachings, that could be presented using the picture, hymn, or song.

Scripture Chain: The Power of True Doctrine

1 Timothy 4:16
2 Timothy 3:16–17
John 8:31–32
3 Nephi 11:31–41
D&C 88:77–78
