Scripture Lessons

My kiddos love the animated scripture stories. We have several Veggie Tales, Nest Bible Stories, and Living Scripture videos. They are so good at teaching and reinforcing the lessons we teach. Prime examples 1 and 2.

1. Last night as we were having family scripture study (and by family scripture study I mean one adult reading the scriptures while the other adult reminds with stern-ish looks to one of the offspring who is sneakily reading another book on the side, gently reminding another offspring in a nice but not so nice whisper to stop jumping and singing, while the other "lucky" offspring gets away with playing with the hyper and barking dog because the non reading parent only has a certain amount discipline she can dish out whilst listening (ha) herself.) we were reading about Daniel and the Lion's Den. After we finished Little Man said, "Mom, did you know that while Daniel was in with the lions he ate Pizza?"
      Thank you Veggie Tales...I did NOT know that.

2. About three years ago a Primary Leader was teaching about David and Goliath. She explained that Goliath was taunting the Israelite armies and daring any to fight him. She then asked the children, "Do any of you know what David did during this time?" Pony Girl raised her hand and stated, "Yes, he sang a song."
       Thank you Living Scriptures as indeed he DID sing a little ditty!

Just so you know scripture study at our house goes just the same only we have twice as many kids to discipline :) I just hope they get something out of it!
