I read the first chapter and am currently reading the second.
Hearing so often that family scripture study would be a good thing to do, I thought over all of the obstacles that would prevent us from doing it and set about to find ways to resolve them all. I knew there had to be a way to overcome them.
*The first obstacle was time....
We decided that early in the morning was best, so we opted for 6:15am.
*The second was resources.....
I went and purchased a hardbound, less expensive copy for each member of the family and had their first name embossed on it. They went into a basket in the front room.
*The third was buy in....
We decided to have a different child host scripture study in his/her bedroom each day. This way, his/her bedroom had to be clean and he/she was responsible for gathering everyone together and making sure there was a piece of floor or bed for everyone to sit on. He/she was also supposed to bring the scripture basket to the bedroom for reading.
*The fourth was enthusiasm....
My hope was that the refreshments could be eliminated in time, and they were. The kids continued to come because it became a habit for our family. As kids' school schedules have changed, we've had to flex. As it stands now, I have an alarm that goes off every evening at 6:30 to alert us that it's time for scriptures. Sometimes we heed it; sometimes we don't.
Looks like it's time to analyze the obstacles again. Maybe it's time to buy some pop tarts.
