Getting the Word from Dad

While my husband was recovering from surgery, I asked him to tape-record himself reading the scriptures. Now, as I iron, mend, garden, can, or do other chores, I keep my mind active by listening to the tapes. Our children, especially our two youngest who cannot yet read by themselves, enjoy using the tapes for scripture study. My husband’s voice makes the time even more memorable.—Barbara Riley, Arvada, Colorado
