The Book of Mormon is, at it’s core, a family journal. It is a story of a family’s journey to the promised land. As time progressed family members re-told the story so they wouldn’t forget, and so their children would know how God helped them. Their family story reminded them of who they were, why they were in the Americas, and how Heavenly Father blessed them.
Their family story provided the foundation for a remarkable civilization that lasted over 1000 years!
We want our children to be remarkable, strong, and full of faith. We want them to know who they are, why they are here, and know that Heavenly Father blesses them. Like the prophets of old, we need to tell our story. How did we come to know God? What was the motivation? How did He help us? How does His Spirit feel?
The language of the Spirit is very different from science. It is a knowledge of the heart. You feel it a different way. You know it a different way. How to explain it? You will find the words as you prepare your story. Remember, spiritual concepts are best understood if the spirit is present. Small and simple things, like meaningful prayer and scripture study prepare us for His spirit.
