The Lord knows how much I appreciate a good irony. And tonight he gave me a doozy.
Every night we do scripture study with the family before bed. We serve a snack or treat at this time to encourage participation. We try to read a whole or half chapter each night, with each child choosing a verse to read out loud to us. Tonight we are in 3rd Nephi Chapter 22.
And for all of you who have not tried to get children's quiet attention let me tell you it is not easy any night- and often harder then normal on Fridays. So Ian was whinning that he couldn't find his scriptures and he and Clay were physically fighting over the table, Shannon was screaming... as Galen's voice rang out verse 13: "And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord: and great shall be the peace of thy children."
