The Bible and other religious literature are the rightful heritage of us all, and study and discussion in the family are a valuable source of religious training. Yet the written word has little meaning unless it leads to the expression of personal religious experience, which is the work of the Spirit behind the word. As individuals and families we must show our children and each other that our search for truth involves every aspect of life.

How do we encourage our children to participate actively in Meeting?
How do we share our deepest beliefs with our children and with one another? What influences among us tend to develop our religious life?
