Why “Treasure” the Scriptures?

This month’s Visiting Teaching message to Search the Scriptures Diligently is great! I’m sure most of us could spend a little more one on one time with our scriptures, especially me. I’m glad I get to find fun and creative ways to motivate myself and others to read and search the scriptures more.

Feed My Sheep Poster
