“Our daughter has said on many occasions how the videos help her so much in understanding the scriptures. This is priceless. They have also helped our older children as well as Mom & Dad to understand the beautiful stories from the scriptures.” ~ Diane McCombs
We receive messages like this often from families who are able to use the Living Scriptures videos to teach the scripture stories to their children. The benefits of learning scripture stories at a young age is far-reaching. We are humbled and excited to provide a tool that can make scripture learning easy and fun for all ages.
We love having the videos in our home. Our kids pull them out every Sunday and absolutely love them. They really help them to learn the scriptures and about the prophets! I would recommend these to any family thinking about it! They are definitely worth the investment!
My kids have done so well in primary & seminary classes because they have seen these videos. We use them for FHE. The music on them is so well done. I would recommend them to any family.
I like the Living Scriptures because they really help me understand the scriptures and they are really like the real scriptures.
Our family is blessed to have the Book of Mormon, the Old, & New Testament on DVD. I am a convert to the church and I have learned so much from these DVDs. When we read the scriptures as a family, I can see my children’s eyes light up when we read a chapter and they remember the story from the DVD. I’m sure my husband would say my eyes light up too! Thank you
Our children love the Animated Hero Classics. When their teachers at school are studying Thomas Edison, Etc. They are delighted when our children offer to bring them in for the class!
We have had the videos for years. I thought the kids would stop watching as they got older. However, they are all in their teens and still watch.
For years it was our goal as a couple to teach our children the scriptures and make it interesting. Of course it was a big challenge until I purchased several video through Living Scriptures. We have seen a big change in our family. Everyone became closer and look forward to having Family Home Evenings. These few videos has made such a positive change that I’m investing in the Family Plan and will recommend them to other families and will refer them too.
The Modern Prophet Video series is full of background information that makes each prophet memorable and unique that you probably won't find in the Elder's quorum manual series "Teachings of the Prophets", which are excellent manuals by the way. It just helps you remember each prophet and the uniqueness and at least learn their names and who they were and are. The funny or quirky or things that stand out in their life help you remember them, that they were people as well as prophets too.
We lived in Chile and everyone learned Spanish (to varying degrees). When we came home we were worried that the kids would lose their language skills and that ours wouldn't improve, so we bought the DVD's and on Sundays we watch them in Spanish. The subtitles help us when there are sections we don't understand well. Unlike the translations in many movies, the subtitles on yours are almost word for word and that is great as a learning tool. The Spanish is also very clear and easy to understand.

I grew up having the Living Scriptures videos in our home, my mother was always proud when people in the ward would comment on how well we knew our scripture stories. Now that I am a mom I love having these wonderful DVDs in my home, they are a great way for children to learn and understand the scriptures and gospel principles. They are also perfect for family home evening and primary lessons. My Husband and I feel that these movies have been a good investment in the testimonies and education of our children.
These movies were INVALUABLE in our children's learning of these wonderful stories. They would quote from them at a very early age. And their primary teachers were amazed at how well they knew the answers to so many questions. We attribute this to not only reading and teaching our children ourselves, but also a large part was the viewing of the Living Scripture movies.
My kids were constantly borrowing the Living Scriptures videos from their grandma, so one year my husband and I decided to go ahead and buy some of the sets for our own home. I couldn't believe that the kids were asking me to put on Jesus' Parables or Lazarus Lives instead of the other movies we own. I am constantly amazed by the knowledge they have gained from watching the bible stories acted out. Even better, my husband and I like watching them also. The movies are kid friendly, but the content is not "dumbed down". I would recommend this addition to any household.
These are vital tools in raising a family! We watch them instead of TV programs and it is great to see these principles in action in our home. The ideas really sink in and make a real difference!
These tapes & DVD’s are as vital as food storage in any home and we highly recommend them. I use them in all my classes, I use them for FHE, they’re a great resource.
The monthly plan is how we collected ours. The prices are reasonable and easy. The kids really looked forward to the new tape each month. They’re great!
We watch the Living Scriptures for family home evenings or the kids watch them before church on Sundays while we’re getting ready. They bring a good spirit into our home and reinforce how important the scriptures are to us. Our kids can better relate to the stories & recall facts much better.
I’m so glad they have such enthusiasm for learning more about gospel principles and incorporating the teachings into their lives. These would be great for any family who is trying to teach their children gospel truths.
I ordered the sets of scriptures when my oldest daughter, now 6, was first-born. At the time, I wondered if we would really use them. They have proven to be more valuable than I imagined as we have watched great stories every week. My two daughters know so many stories from the scriptures now and they still watch them over and over again. The most interesting finding has been watching my husband, who is a recent convert, enjoying them right along with my kids. When the envelope comes, he is the first to open the package and begin watching. They have increased his knowledge of the scriptures and he also uses them in teaching Sunday School classes. I consider them a great investment for our family!

I grew up on Living Scripture's animated movies. We got them all. We had Book of Mormon, New Testament, Old Testament and Heroes. We received one in the mail once a month and I remember how excited we were to watch it. Our Dad made us wait until Family Home Evening before we could watch it, and we couldn't wait. These movies are how we learned the scripture stories. It is such a fun way to watch Bible, Book of Mormon and Hero Classic stories. I still vividly remember each story and when asked questions at church, I could remember them all because I knew the stories. They are so exciting and really good. Now that I'm grown and have kids of my own, I have purchased the Dvd's and absolutely LOVE them. They are worth every penny. I can't say enough how these are the best movies you could ever get for your family and you will cherish them!
Give your family an understanding and love of the scriptures in a fun, entertaining way!
