Discussion: Why do you think the Nephite prophets cared so much about the Lamanites? Do you care about people who are mean to you? What did Jesus say we should think about our enemies and those who want harm us?
Make family scripture time productive. Get the kids excited. If kids can see how the Book of Mormon applies to them and if reading the Book is FUN, you might hear, "Is it time to read yet?", rather than, "Do we have to?" We are counseled to SEARCH the scriptures, not just read them. It takes preparation to do that with children. This is the preparation that I've done. Now I have it for reference next time. And you do too. Comments welcome.
