3 Nephi 1:2
There Is Power In The Book
I also encourage all parents hearing or reading this message to make the Book of Mormon an important part of your home. As our children were growing, we read the Book of Mormon as we ate breakfast. This is the bookmark that we used. On the front is a quote from President Benson promising that God would pour out a blessing upon us as we read the Book of Mormon.11 On the back is this promise from President Marion G. Romney, formerly a counselor in the First Presidency: “I feel certain that if, in our homes, parents will read from the Book of Mormon prayerfully and regularly, both by themselves and with their children, the spirit of that great book will come to permeate our homes and all who dwell therein. … The spirit of contention will depart. Parents will counsel their children in greater love and wisdom. Children will be more responsive and submissive to the counsel of their parents. Righteousness will increase. Faith, hope, and charity—the pure love of Christ—will abound in our homes and lives, bringing in their wake peace, joy, and happiness.”12
Let the Book of Mormon bring you closer to Christ.
Study it. Take note of how it points us to Christ. Let the spirit of the Book touch you with it's power. I am grateful for this sacred book and the fact that when we prayerfully study it that we can be taught by the spirit the things the Lord would have us know and feel. What a blessing it is to individuals and families as we study it to have this divine guidance.
