Living Scriptures

Last year, my parents gave us their collection of VHS Living Scriptures movies. We have a little TV/VCR combo, so one day I popped a movie in for Tyler to keep him busy while I did dishes, and he LOVED it! It is now a daily thing for him to watch one. Because the tape pops out when it is finished playing and rewinding, Tyler can just run up to the TV and push it in to start it up. He climbs up in our big papasan chair and he's ready to rock.

His favorites are the Joseph Smith Story and Nephi and the Brass Plates. I never would have thought he would like it so much. It's sort of random, but it's good way to start him loving the scripture stories while he's young, huh?

You can see Laman and Lemuel on the screen here. It's sort of funny to hear these movies on in the background because I can remember watching them when I was little, and you just remember all the funny parts of the movie that have no scriptural basis (like Lemuel's whiny voice, or Zoram's commentary on "leaving the city").

Unfortunately, Nephi wasn't enough to keep Tyler up after church today.

Yard Sale Junkie Update: I hit up a rockin' yard sale yesterday, and got three really cute dresses (I wore one for Easter today), a cute shirt, a pair of American Eagle jeans, Moulin Rouge and You've Got Mail, all for $10. I can't stop!

Tyler is so cute! Church takes a lot out of you. Katie, you are awesome on the deals. I need to come with you:-)

Yard sales in Apache Junction are so sucky- people sell tables with 3 legs. I'm not joking. I'm coming up there to take advantage of the deals. Good job for starting Tyler off early on the scriptures! I laughed out loud when I read about Lemuel's whiny voice. Ha- I totally remember that.

I'm totally into yard sales too. Haha, we should trade notes. Do you search for them on Craig's List before you go?

Hi Guys,

Just love that you are teaching Tyler about the scriptures. He is so adorable. So looking forward to seeing him and you when you come for a visit this Thursday. You should go to garage sales in Yucaipa. They have them all over the place. Get up on Saturday morning and head out for bargains. Lots of fun! TAKE CARE, We love you,
Great Grandma gma

Wow, you really did hit the jackpot! And I love it that the second generation of scripture videos watchers still love them. I remember McKay watching those too:):):)

Katie - You are one hot mama! What a beautiful picture that is of you!

I love those Living Scriptures videos too! I love the one where they get the brass plates too! Good times.

Love you!
