Behold! It came to pass!

Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Matt 18:3)

And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children (3 Ne 22: 13)

We've been trying to have regular family scripture study, even with the little ones. It's amazing what a difference it's made! Parker knows that it's part of our evening routine, and he'll actually remind US that it's time to read scriptures. He even likes to stand on chairs and declare "Behold! It came a pass!" Very cute :) He's also learning about his Savior Jesus Christ though, and learning to love him. He enjoys "reading" along with me while we read sometimes. Even if they're not understanding everything all at once, they're feeling the Spirit, and learning the importance of reading. And, every once in a while, we have fantastic teaching moments. Sometimes there's screaming and running around, but sometimes, more increasingly, there's just peace.

how amazing it is to see the difference made in the home when scripture study (no matter how long) occurs. I love the pictures of Parker with his scriptures.
