Making the Scriptures COME ALIVE!!!!

 

scriptures 2

 

While doing scripture study with my children yesterday they really started asking some important questions, ones that I knew I needed to study up on before I answered! Talk about shock! Defintely made me want to “feast upon my scriptures” more! I’ve always been big into reading my scriptures daily. Now I try to make sure that my kids even though they are still young, in some people’s eyes, read at least two verses or more a night, so that they can establish a good habit. Now, how can I make those precious scriptures really come alive for them?? I have found some amazing resources online from some of my favorite sites, and I need your help! Let me know what you guys do! I can’t wait to get started! As Elder Robert D. Hales states “ Read the scriptures together . I remember my own mother and father reading the scriptures as we children sat on the floor and listened. sometimes they would ask, ‘ What does that scripture mean to you?’ or ‘ How does it make you feel?’ Then they would listen to us as we responded in our own words. “   

 

Ok, here is some of the things I’ve found…. I love these sites!! You should visit them often!
