The fun of scripture reading

Every morning at about 7 am, we sit down as a family and read the scriptures and then pray together. We don’t read a lot (I have a 4, 8, and 10-year-old), but we think it is important to have that habit.

We usually finish without any problems. Sometimes it is hard to get the kids to focus, but they generally follow along.

This morning, my 4-year-old daughter was sitting on my wife’s lap. We had finished reading the scriptures, and just before my oldest son offered the morning prayer, my daughter blurted out, “Food becomes snot.” She said it in a super cheerful voice, just like she was saying “today is sunny” or “I like toys”. We finished reading Mosiah 28 this morning, so we have no idea what made her think/say that, but it was hilarious!
