And a Little Child Shall Lead Them....

Last night, BB (age 6) had the Family Home Evening lesson. She was gone all day, and yet she had an idea that she wanted to run with. By the time she got home, I couldn't help her because I had to get dinner ready. So she tackled it on her own.

We sat down to a lesson that touched my heart. It was on the Book of Mormon. One key message she wanted to get across was that reading the Book of Mormon [reading scriptures] was more important than reading other books. [She meant this in terms of priorities -- that we should read the scriptures first before reading other things.] She had her brother come up and pretend to be reading a different book, and then had Dad come up to remind him that he should read his scriptures first.

Once she had this little 'skit' she had us each draw a picture of the Book of Mormon or the gold plates. She then asked to use my cell phone to take a picture of us all holding our pictures.

In our family prayer, she later asked that we would remember to read the Book of Mormon before we read other books.

Do I even need to say which book I started my day with today? :)


  1. Hopefully she won't catch you reading another book. But I suppose you could say you have already read the Book of Mormon.

  2. Oh, Eric, you helped me realize that I didn't make her point clear. She meant that it was more important in the sense of doing it FIRST...like in a priorities kind of a way! I'm going to go edit that now. :)

  3. Ugh. Just saw that I never really finished one of the paragraphs. Goes to show what happens when you try to post a post quickly! :)
