President Henry B. Eyring, Second Counselor in the First Presidency, shares some of his thoughts on this subject.

How can my scripture study be more meaningful?

We need to go to the scriptures humbly and eagerly.

Establish a regular time to study the scriptures. Once you get used to regular scripture study, you miss it if you don’t have it.

When we come to a crisis in our life, we should go looking in the scriptures for specific help. We will find answers in the scriptures.

If you read the Book of Mormon with an open heart, you will know that it is the word of God and that it is true.

In time, if you truly begin to feast upon the scriptures, you will find that they become a part of you.
