Do you ever feel like it’s a struggle to hold family scripture study? I love Heidi Hillman’s approach to this. I feel like our thoughts are pretty similar. I included some of her tips with mine in this post.

Keep It Simple

Maybe I’m the only one who feels this way, but if it’s simple I am more likely to get it done. The more steps I have to complete, the more I feel like I have obstacles in my way. I find that demotivating really fast!

Try a Variety of Methods

This guide includes discussion questions, lists-making, drawing, recording what you learned, writing your testimony and drawing the story in comic-book style (she calls them story strips). Get creative and find out what your family really likes to do to get them into the scriptures.

Do What Works for Your Family

As you try different methods, you’ll learn that some work for you and others don’t. For example, I really don’t like to draw. Keep the methods that work and reuse them. Discard the ones that don’t. Continuing to use them can create negative feelings around holding family scripture study.

Every Little Bit Counts

Having a family can be chaotic. If all your kids can handle one night is one verse, it’s okay. You still had family scripture study! This isn’t something that needs to be done perfectly.
