Entry from Monday, April 4
3 Nephi 26:14
"And it came to pass that he did teach and minister unto the children of the multitude...and he did loose their tongues, and they did speak unto their fathers great and marvelous things, even greater than he had revealed unto the people; and he loosed their tongues that they could utter."

I have greater respect for children and babies after reading this. To think that Christ gave more guidance, information, and inspiration to the children than than He did to the adults -- that's incredible to me.

Also, what don't my little girls know (especially little Claire, since she definitely has a tongue that needs loosening)? It's no wonder that so often they are the sages teaching me.

I'm so grateful for the Savior's unique, admirable respect for little ones. He is such an example to me.


  1. Hey Jen! I love these scripture study posts! Thank you for sharing! I was wondering, how do you choose what to study each day?
    Love you girl :)

    1. My Jen! I love you so. Thank you for coming by here! That's a good Q. I always start my studies with a prayer asking, "Please talk to me today. I'd love to hear what YOU want me to know," and either something pops into my mind, like a book of scripture (John) and I'll flip there and find what His little message, or a General Conference talk will come to mind, or an Apostle's name will come to mind and I search the talks they've written and go from there. But if nothing comes to mind (which is most of the time!), I just keep plugging along in the Book of Mormon. After I finish the BOM this time, I'll starting progressively reading through the Doctrine and Covenants.

      But I think prayer is the key. And yes, for me, if no specific starting place comes to mind, my fall back is the Book of Mormon. How do you usually decide where to start?

      I love you!! XO

  2. Ah thanks for your answe Jen, I really like the way you do it! That's awesome. In the past i have usually been in the Book of Mormon- reading it start to finish. Lately though I've liked studying more by the topic- which still generally brings me back to the Book of Mormon which I love. I love reading your scripture posts, great insights!
