I definitely recommend both books.
1. Pick the time of day that you are the most alert and have the most to give. Study then.
2. Pick a place where you can be focused on the scriptures. Study there.
3. Pray before you study.
4. Try different ways to mark your scriptures.
5. Write down what you learn as you study. (I love my scripture journal that I have been keeping for over a year. I learned the idea from www.theredheadedhostess.com.)
6. Take your time.
I learned a lot from my own study of this topic. I'm so glad I get to teach the young women.
7.It's spring! And I LOVE flowers! Here are a few shots from my front yard! They just make me happy! Have a wonderful sabbath!
