Children grow up so fast! Start scripture study early in the lives of your children to give them as much opportunity as possible to be under your tutelage. There will be days you miss, but the earlier you start the more days you will have the opportunity to teach them. You may think they are not learning or do not understand, but their minds and hearts will feel the Spirit that accompanies the holy scriptures.
"This is our one and only chance at mortal life — here and now. The longer we live, the greater is our realization that it is brief. Opportunities come, and then they are gone. I believe that among the greatest lessons we are to learn in this short sojourn upon the earth are lessons that help us distinguish between what is important and what is not. I plead with you not to let those most important things pass you by as you plan for that illusive and non-existent future when you will have time to do all that you want to do. Instead, find joy in the journey — now" (Thomas S. Monson, November 2008 Ensign, 85).
