Preparing Our Children For A Life Of Testing

Book of Mormon Marriage And Family Study

1 Nephi 21: 1

“the Lord hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name.”

President Eyring said, “We have the greatest opportunity with the young. The best time to teach is early, while children are still immune to the temptations of their mortal enemy, and long before the words of truth may be harder for them to hear in the noise of their personal struggles.”

“A wise parent would never miss a chance to gather children together to learn of the doctrine of Jesus Christ. Such moments are so rare in comparison with the efforts of the enemy. For every hour the power of doctrine is introduced into a child’s life, there may be hundreds of hours of messages and images denying or ignoring the saving truths.”

“With so little time and so few opportunities, what words of doctrine from me will fortify them against the attacks on their faith which are sure to come?”

From birth to age 8, our children are immune to the Devil; and I am sure he is furious about this. Therefore, he will do all he can to get us (their parents) to waste this precious time. This is the ideal time to build their foundation of faith for the rest of their life.

Our children’s faith will constantly be tested; and not just by the noise of their personal struggles but also because they are bombarded by the lies and philosophies of this world.
