Have you ever wished that your kids came with an instruction manual? I know that I have. This book has helped me to see that the kids themselves didn’t come with an instruction manual, but I do have a manual that I have been given to help me to be a better parent to our kids. Julie K Nelson’s book talks about the power of parenting examples in the scriptures. She gives examples of good parenting in the Book of Mormon and in the Bible, including our greatest example, the Savior Himself.
I don’t always love to read non-fiction books, usually they take me way longer to read than fiction books and I get tired of them before I’ve finished. Not so with this book. I loved the way that Julie teaches how to find the Spiritual Power in the scriptures. She uses a mix of scripture references, stories from the scriptures and personal stories. I was able to read this book quite quickly, I was way interested in it. I plan to use it as a reference later on for Family Home Evenings. And the best benefit that I got from reading it was that I will never look at scriptures in the same way. I have had a couple of amazing experiences with the scriptures since I finished this book. Thanks tons to Julie K Nelson for helping to revitalize my scripture reading and find more answers than I ever have before!
