This year our family has started the new year with a renewed focus on studying the scriptures together. With children from the age of 12 down to 1, it can be difficult to find a way to strengthen and uplift everyone at the same time. Not to mention, hard to find a time when everyone will sit and listen.
After much thought, we decided that right after dinner was the best time for us. (While everyone is already sitting at the table). And thanks to Nicole Carpenter, we have found a new approach that has made the first month of scripture study a fantastic experience for our family.
52 Weeks is a theme-based approach to daily deotionals for Latter-day Saint families. The book offers an assortment of topics from kindness and citizenship to prayer and repentance.
Each week has a different topic and then each day of the week has a message already prepared for you. Scriptures and quotes are included. BUT....it is not overwhelming. Last week our family talked about Happiness. We love being able to talk about things for 7 days. It allows us to really cover the topic. And it lets our children think about things each day.
Another thing I love about the book is the section at the back that focuses on holiday devotionals. Love and Valentine's Day, Easter and the Atonement, our Nation and Independence Day, Fear and Halloween, Graitude and Thanksgiving and the Nativity and Christmas. The perfect way to keep the spirit in the holidays, year round.
"52 Weeks to Fortify your Family" has completely changed our families scripture study experience. It has taken so much stress out of it for my husband and I. And our children love sitting around the table after dinner and talking. They grab the book each night and bring it to the table with willing hearts and minds. Your family will LOVE this book.
