3 Nephi 11:3-7

I've been thinking about how beautiful these few verses of the Book of Mormon are. Today I didn't need to add Mother or change anything to Parents: I just changed "I" to "We" in verse 7.

3 And it came to pass that while they were thus conversing one with another, they heard a voice as if it came out of heaven; and they cast their eyes round about, for they understood not the voice which they heard; and it was not a harsh voice, neither was it a loud voice; nevertheless, and notwithstanding it being a small voice it did pierce them that did hear to the center, insomuch that there was no part of their frame that it did not cause to quake; yea, it did pierce them to the very soul, and did cause their hearts to burn.

4 And it came to pass that again they heard the voice, and they understood it not.

5 And again the third time they did hear the voice, and did open their ears to hear it; and their eyes were towards the sound thereof; and they did look steadfastly towards heaven, from whence the sound came.

6 And behold, the third time they did understand the voice which they heard; and it said unto them:

7 Behold our Beloved Son, in whom We are well pleased, in whom We have glorified our names—hear ye him.

I love this scripture too ;-) Thanks for sharing it today. I always need to be reminded not to yell at my kids but instead use a small calm voice
