Scripture Reading Ideas

I love to read the Holy Scriptures!

With this being a 5th Sunday our ward has planned a special 3rd hour focusing on Family Scripture Study.  I've been asked to share a few tips/ideas for reading the scriptures together with your family.  Our ward is going to be focusing on this throughout the year so while I'm in visiting with the adults, with other speakers from the ward, the youth and primary will also be receiving a message on Family Scripture Study.  We love reading the scriptures together as a family and have tried many different scripture reading ideas over the years.  I thought I would share some of those with you and with everyone tomorrow.  Who knows...it might just spark something new you could try and if you have an idea you would like to share I would love that too!  We have in our home two children in High School and a Pre-Schooler so our scripture study time has to be one that all will enjoy. 

With that said...here are a few of the ideas I plan on sharing tomorrow -


Additional Tips:

Don't forget to carry an additional copy of the Book of Mormon with you at all times to share with a friend or stranger that might be interested in learning more about the church.
Sit down with your children every month to read the scriptures found in the Personal Progress Pamphlet, Duty to God, and Faith in God Booklets.

While Visiting Teaching and Home Teaching ask to share a scripture with those you are visiting with.  If they are unable to read or ill read to them.


If you would like a copy of the Scripture Reading Ideas shown above please comment here or email me at jennifer.hawkins@hotmail.com or beehivemessages@gmail.com.  Be sure to leave me your email address so I can get a copy to you quickly.

That is a fantastic way to get the families excited and focused. Some of the kids in primary complain that they can't read and their parents won't read to them. It makes me sad. Please send me a copy and I will pass this idea on to the Bishop at ward counsel.

Yep, all great ideas. We have been reading ours for a couple of years now. We have read the Book of Mormon twice and are also working on the old testament. I love the idea of using the Gospel Art Kit. I think I will pull that out to use it. and I will also say that it is the best thing that we have ever done!
