Today I was reading in Moroni 7 and received an answer to a very important prayer I've had lately.
Lately, I've been thinking about how to homeschool. I decided to homeschool in January, but since my oldest is only 4 and a half, I haven't really worried about how to do it. We've just been getting into a regular schedule... But lately, I've been learning about a specific method, and I've been wondering whether or not it's the best idea for our family. I was really struggling with this. I prayed a lot; I fasted.
Then today, I read Moroni 7:16: "For behold, the Spirit of Christ is given to every man, that he may know good from evil; wherefore, I show unto you the way to judge; for every thing which inviteth to do good, and to persuade to believe in Christ, is sent forth by the power and gift of Christ; wherefore ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of God."
It was the answer I've been waiting for! I thought about this specific method, and realized that, YES!, it "inviteth to do good, and to persuade to believe in Christ..."!! I was so relieved to get such a straightforward answer! (Usually, my answers are a little more hazy.) I looked through the principles of this method of homeschooling and realized that everything in it would coincide perfectly with the Gospel and with what I found to be important.
I'm so grateful that we have the scriptures! Today was definitely an example of that quote: "If you want to talk to God, pray. If you want God to talk to you, read the scriptures."
