7:30 am

Our little family read the entire Book of Mormon cover to cover last week.
We celebrated by going to get frozen yogurt.
This is a huge accomplishment as a family.  We read each morning at 7:30.  
We usually read a chapter and then try and have a discussion 
about what we have read.  
This has been a HUGE blessing to our family.
Mr. Nielson and I have always read the scriptures together, 
and just in the last few years, 
we have been able to include the Little Nies 
because they can all read (except for Lottie).

One morning as I was hiking, I felt very very inspired to make scripture study 
WITH the children a priority first thing in the morning every day.  
Mr. Nielson and I together discussed this and promised we would
 support one another in this decision  Then we promised God we would do 
this and we plead for added blessings that we needed at the time.  
God always does what He says. 
Our family was blessed beyond words.  Sometimes not with what we wanted, 
but always what we needed.
And then, soon enough, and just like that, we finished the book...all together.

"The blessings of daily scripture study and prayer 
and weekly family home evenings, 
are the very practices that help take away stress, give 
direction to our lives, 
and add protection to our homes."
{You need to read that talk, its amazing}
If you are not a member of 
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (or Mormon), 
that doesn't mean you can't read the Book of Mormon.  
In fact, let me send you a copy!! I will!
This book added with your faith and the desire to understand will
change your life.  It will.  I promise. It has changed mine.
