I put him in charge of reading since Tom was gone and I was nursing. He read several verses and passed the book around to the rest of us for our turns. Sometimes he cruises through those sacred words so fast that I wonder if he even "sees" them. But tonight, as we were about done reading, he stopped himself mid-verse and said, "Wow, I really like that, let me read it again, 'Behold I say unto you, wickedness never was happiness.' Huh...I'm always going to remember that one...Alma 41:10." We discussed it a little, and Tessa even tried to challenge the principle. But Tyler defended it, "Come on, Tessa, tell me when you've ever done something wicked that made you happy." It feels good to not be the one stopping people mid-verse to reiterate a poignant piece of scripture.
I am pretty blessed to have Tyler as the big brother of my little brood. He'll be a great trail-blazer for his younger sisters.
