My goal of "Saturday's Story" is to share my favorite books, websites, and blogs for both parents and kids. I would also love lots of comments and suggestions to get more ideas!
My first story is my favorite book for all ages - The Book of Mormon. It is the story of the ancient American people and is another witness of Jesus Christ. It is the book that I go to to find comfort, answers, and joy. One of my favorite scripture says that "Adam fell that men might be; and men are that they might have joy." God wants us to be happy and to find joy and fulfillment in our lives. Reading The Book of Mormon has helped me to feel that joy!
We try to read The Book of Mormon every night together as a family and my older two kids have really enjoyed reading and learning the stories that is contains. Sometimes it is hard for my kids to understand, but I have been amazed at how much they really do comprehend. Just last night as Kaylee and I were reading, we read a verse and she stopped and explained it in her own words. I was amazed!
I know that The Book of Mormon is true! Joseph Smith said; "I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book."
