Scripture Reading 2012

I am terrible at remembering to floss my kids' teeth, folding laundry, and getting them to school on time.

However, we read scriptures every single night as a family, no matter what.

(So, they may have bad teeth, wrinkled clothes, and tardies a mile long.  They are spiritually fed at least, right?).

;)

For the past few years, we have been following the scripture reading plan outlined in the 2008 Friend.  In it, you read certain verses from a different book a month; you basically hit all of the "stories" throughout the Book of Mormon.  The kids get to glue a stone for each book read, so it makes it fun for them, too.

We read 5 verses a night, and call it good.  It's been really good for our family, and has helped us develop a habit of daily study.

I saw a new version in the January 2011 Friend called "Book of Mormon Feast", and I am SO excited!

Adam actually noticed it and ran it to me, and asked if we could do it this year.

It goes week by week, and has verses and a corresponding picture to color in.  We begin on Sunday, and are excited about a new year of family scripture reading, and a new way to keep track of what we read!
