Tender Mercy

Each night we read scriptures as a family. Recently we have chosen one scripture that we are trying to memorize. 1 Nephi 2:3  After we read, we recite the chosen scripture. Usually it is just my husband and I with my almost 3 yr old mumbling along with us. Tonight out of the blue my 2ish yr old recites by herself; 1 Nephi 2:3 'And it came to pass that I was obedient... mumble mumble mumble'. I literally almost cried! What a tender mercy to know that my precious little girl IS listening, she IS learning, the scriptures ARE becoming familiar to her. Such a good night for me. The Lord is oh so aware of us.

FYI: 1 Nephi 2:3 And it came to pass that he was obedient unto the word of the Lord, wherefore he did as the Lord commanded him.


  1. This was wonderful. Thank you for sharing! We need to include my almost 2-year-old in our scripture reading.

  2. It has been so neat to see her learn. not every day is this great haha but these moments make it worth the non-listening days.

    This so exciting wife A!!!! We have been struggling to read together :( I know if we don't make it a habit now, it won't be once we have kids. I get tired of all the reminders all of the time sometimes... I need to keep trying though. Thanks for the post friend :)
