Discussion: What would you do if you were Akish? Would you have agreed to kill the king? Do you think that this was the first bad thing Akish had done (did he do good things all his life and then suddenly decide to kill the king)?
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.
