Reading The Book of Mormon FHE

For FHE I shared a few of my favorite quotes from President Monson's recent General Conference talk and we discussed them as a family. You can find his talk here.  A few things I brought up is the need to gain our own testimony of The Book of Mormon and after we have one we need to "keep it vital and alive."  We then read his challenge to read daily and the blessing that come from doing that.

I created this print not just for our lesson but to be displayed in our home as a reminder to read daily.

To Print:
Click on the picture.  Right click to save to your computer.
Print at home or send it to your favorite place to print pictures.
If printing at home I like to copy and paste (or insert) in a word document.  Size and print on cardstock.  
These are formatted to fit a 5x7 frame.

Next I showed my kids this reading chart that we will mark off as we go.  This one is for our family they also have individual ones in their Faith in God Binders.  I found this really cute one here.
Finally we pulled out our scriptures and had a  Book of Mormon read-a-thon.  We read together and ate cookies.
  I really loved the simplicity of this FHE.  We were reminded of the Prophets counsel and took action to follow it.  I would like to say it went smooth and everyone loved it but I can't and that's okay.  It was one of those days where we had crazy toddlers running around and there was some pouting as well.  Maybe some of you can relate.  Family scripture study and FHE might not always go smoothly around here and sometimes I wonder if anyone is even listening but I know its important and they are learning more then we think.
