Sister Scriptorians

"We want our sisters to be scholars of the scriptures. … You need an acquaintanceship with his eternal truths for your own well being, and for the purposes of teaching your own children and all others who come within your influence.”3

“We want our homes to be blessed with sister scriptorians—whether you are single or married, young or old, widowed or living in a family. … Become scholars of the scriptures—not to put others down, but to lift them up!”4

President Spencer W. Kimball (1895–1985).

I loved this quote from the March visiting teaching message. There are so many men (of course there are women as well) in the church who are known as scriptorians or scholars. I love this charge for all women to jump in and join them. As mothers we really need to be well acquainted with the scriptures, our children need it.
