Praise for Scripture Study for Latter-day Saint Families:
“I can see that Scripture Study for Latter-day Saint Families will be a great resource to instill a love for the scriptures in my children (as well as myself). I love the variety it provides. I love how simple it is but yet fun. I love that preparation time is minimum which means my daughter can be in charge as we rotate assignments. I love that it explores the scriptures verse by verse and lets us dwell on what we can take and learn and use in our daily lives. I can see my family and myself learning lots. I also really like that as parents there's insights for us to learn as well. It's not just for children! I'm thrilled that the activities are not time intensive, that it will fit right in to the time slot we have for scripture study every day, so it won't mean having to get up even earlier to be able to participate in the program. This book is truly inspired. Thank you and I can hardly wait for the New Testament version!” — Jerald and Lesa Sandberg
“That book was the best wedding gift we received. We treasure it and will use it in our family.” — Wade Reed
“Scripture Study for Latter-day Saint Families has blessed my family! Over the years we have been trying to be obedient in reading scriptures together. It has turned out more often than not that we just go through the motions and do not really get much out of it in the way of learning. Oh, I think my children know that family scripture reading is something we must do but the learning aspect has been frustrating. Well, this has been the answer that we've needed.”
“The scriptures are now coming to life for my children. The ideas and applications presented have guided us to many discussions on applying the scriptures to situation in our lives, which is exactly what I've wanted my children to learn.”
&ldqou;We have seen our children share their feelings, thoughts, and testimonies through our discussions. They are participating gladly, which is a miracle in itself. In fact, one of our teenagers recently said, 'It is like having family home evening every night!' She was actually glad when she said it and I think that's the way it should be!” — Tammy Olsen, Meridian, Idaho
This book is terrific for my family. Our kids are elementary school aged, but the topics could also easily work for older kids. There are discussion points for every few verses of scripture with activity ideas and discussion questions. We typically pick a few to stop our reading and discuss. It has prompted deeper discussions and much more understanding than simple reading alone. The activity ideas could easily be adapted for a Family Home Evening lesson. This is a great resource and I recommend it.
