Thought for Sunday

More on Scripture Study!
President Ezra Taft Benson explained how the scriptures can be a powerful way to bless us and answer the difficult questions of life: Quote--"Often we spend great effort in trying to increase the activity levels in our stakes.  We work diligently to raise the percentages of those attending sacrament meetings.  We labor to get a higher percentage of our young men on missions.  We strive to improve the numbers of those marrying in the temple.  All of these are commendable efforts and important to the growth of the kingdom.  But when individual members and families immerse themselves in the scriptures regularly and consistently, these other areas of activity will automatically come.  Testimonies will increase.  Commitment will be strengthened.  Families will be fortified.  Personal revelation will flow."
Thanks to all of you parents for teaching your children the importance of reading the scriptures individually and as families.  There are so many reason why our family is so blessed and happy and loves spending time together.  It's because we are all TRYING to keep the commandments and make ourselves worthy to return to live with our Heavenly Father TOGETHER FOREVER!!!
We are forever grateful for each and every one of you!!!
Have a great Sunday together!
Dad and Mom, PaPa Lynn and Grannie
