I was so excited when I heard they announced the Primary Theme for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for 2016. I love how these themes give us something to focus on through out the year. The LDS 2016 Primary Theme is “I know the scriptures are true.”
Before we started reading scriptures tonight as a family, I was having a not very good evening. I was honestly considering just sending everyone to bed. It was already passed bedtime, I was not in a spiritual mood at all and I was ready to be done with this day. We’ve been majorly slacking on our family scripture study, so I knew I needed to suck it up and gather up the troops. As we sat down in the living room to read, I immediately started feeling more at peace. Even though Cole was struggling with the pronunciation of some words, both Rory and Sutton were crying, Hudson was focused more on the legos he found on the living room floor than the words that were being read, and Ryan was so exhausted from Scout Camp that he was barely awake…I knew we were where we should be, doing it what we should be and it was a great feeling. I’m hoping that we can have that feeling every night during our family scripture time, and hopefully having this printable where we can see it always will be a positive reminder for us.

I am a 70 yr old Primary president, so grateful for your sharing your Theme poster. We are using the poster as door signs .
I loved your post. I am the mother of 10. Many of our Scripture times and our Family Home Evenings began much as yours did. They were never a waste of time! You were so right to gather that evening when everything else seemed to scream,”just get to bed!”. You and your family will be blessed by your choice.
Thank you so much Betty! I really appreciate your encouragement!!
So thankful for you sharing your poster. It is being used in our Primary as door signs, and looks great.
Also want to congratulate you on your choice to gather your family for scriptures. I am a 70 year old great grandmother of 6, grandmother of 30, and mother of 10. Many of our scripture times and FHEs began much as yours.
It was never a waste of time! Bon Courage!
Thank you Betty! I’m glad your primary is able to use this!!
May I copy this and resize it for our bulletin front?
That would be totally fine. Thanks for asking.
