BOM: 1 Nephi Chapters 3-9

What? I didn’t realize I hadn’t even blogged the first few chapters. I’m altogether too scatterbrained anyway, and I’m reading other scriptures too, still working on the NT and OT. Besides, it’s been a nutty little while full of dental drama, not to mention emotional messes. But enough of that. A few verses from chapter […]

BOM: 1 Nephi chapter 1

One thing that always amazes me about the Book of Mormon is that no matter how many times I read it, I always notice something different, in every single chapter, every single time. I love that. So the kids and I are starting fresh with 1st Nephi, Chapter 1, which you can find here. This […]

Waiting on the Lord

When we pray, God hears more than we say, answers more than we ask, gives more than we imagineā€¦ in HIS own time & HIS own way. One of my facebook friends posted that quote, adding, “I think some people get upset when they don’t get the answer they expect right away…when something much better […]

Romans 8: A scripture that hit the spot

I’ll be honest. The kids and I struggled with this chapter last night before throwing in the towel halfway through. Paul is awesome, but the format of the arguments over the past few chapters has been difficult to explain, verse-by-verse or concept by concept, to the kids. We gave it another go together tonight, though, […]

Sorpresa de las Escrituras!

The kids and I typically read and discuss a chapter from the new testament for scripture study each night, but on the nights when we’re out of time or just not feeling up to it, we still try to at least read and talk about a scripture mastery reference. We have a box full of […]

A Good Morning

My kids and I love a good meteor shower, so at 4:30 this morning we headed west to a dead-end, dark mountain road, got ourselves all snuggled together in the front passenger’s seat, rolled down the windows, and watched the dust left from Haley’s Comet as it made its way into our atmosphere. Even at […]

Dieter F. Uchtdorf’s talk on Forget-me-nots

(If you’re looking for the talk itself, you can find it here.) I went into Women’s conference today praying for some help, as I’m really struggling to get some things right lately, from dating, to making dinner, to responsive web design. And I’m really, really ridiculously tired all the time. I don’t know whether it’s […]

Serenity

These past few weeks have been more than a little nuts with the stress of quitting my job, putting my old house up for sale, and a number of other random things. That’s probably why I got sick on Wednesday and had to spend most of Thursday resting, too. So when I woke up on […]

BOM Project: 2 Nephi: 7

So, sometimes I don’t even read chapters sequentially. Tonight I needed this. I was looking up something else for the kids at FHE and ran across this one instead. It’s Nephi’s copy of one of his favorite chapters from Isaiah (because those scriptures were valuable to him, too). Anyway I don’t want to go into […]

BOM Project: Omni

So I was going to dive right in to Mosiah, but since we’re talking about King Benjamin here, we might as well jump in where he’s truly introduced: in Omni. Omni is a strange book, again just one chapter. (I remember it being a pretty cool magazine, too.) Omni straight up admits he has not […]
