Fam and friends! I’m having an awesome time. This was a special week because on Saturday and Sunday we had General Conference, which is a meeting for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that is broadcast all over the world. We get to hear talks from our prophet, Thomas S. Monson, and his apostles and other church leaders. I learned a lot from it.

One thing I thought was really cool that I want to share with u all is from a talk given by Elder Scott. He said that we need to make reading the scriptures and praying every day as a family a priority in our lives, and not let anything get in the way of it. He said that as we do this, we will be blessed with peace in our homes.
I have felt this blessing in my family as we strive to this. As we work together to become a little more like Christ every day, we have more patience and love for each other. So even when mom eats all the sausage off of the entire pizza, we don’t get too upset, and we even get a good laugh out of it!

I invite you all to apply this in your families. Pick a time that u will read the scriptures as a family every day. Once you pick a time, stick with it. Even if you can’t get your entire family together for it every day, gather as much of your family as u can. The important thing is that you read every single day. You can read as much or as little as you want.

After you read together, pray together as a family. Thank your Heavenly Father for all the amazing things He has blessed you with, and ask Him to guide you in all you do and help you be a little better every day. As you do this, your family relationships will strengthen, and your home will be filled with peace and love. I know this is true because God gave us this council through one of His chosen servants.

Our Heavenly Father knows us all perfectly, individually. And He wants so badly for us to be happy. I testify, as a representative of Jesus Christ, that this is true. I love you all so much, and I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
