Have you wanted to buy Living Scriptures DVDs but found them too expensive? Well Living Scriptures streaming is a new way for you to watch Living Scriptures and other movies for a lot less. They’re also better because the company restored and updated their videos, bringing them up to HD standards. The colors are more vibrant and the sound has been enhanced too.
Before I dive into Living Scriptures streaming…I wanted to note that I recently wrote about Deseret Book’s new online subscription where you can listen to lds audiobooks for a monthly fee. Read about that here. My teenage son loves the series that are available from Deseret Book’s audiobooks but there aren’t a lot of options for littler kids. That’s where Living Scriptures comes in…it’s great for little children.
I have to admit that I’ve really missed VidAngel and don’t know if they’ll be back ever. So I’m happy that there are other options for LDS church members to find quality entertainment and media that teaches gospel principles.
Living Scriptures has kiosks in Utah malls to sell animated Book of Mormon stories DVDs. My mom bought them for all of her grandkids and she gave them to us for Christmas and birthdays. We appreciated them but we don’t watch many movies on DVD anymore. They get lost, broken or the player wears out. They can also be a bit pricey. So I’m happy that Living Scriptures has a streaming service so you just pay per month and access all of their content. I recently signed up to test it out.

Book of Mormon Stories Videos
Everyone knows Living Scriptures for their animated Book of Mormon stories and that’s probably the first thing most of us will watch first. However, Living Scriptures streaming has a great selection of over 100 movies. They mostly animated but there are movies like Freetown that aren’t. Plus, there are movies for adults as well as for kids on things like church history, Family Home Evening lessons and more.
For us, Sundays can be difficult. I can’t sit around reading scriptures or even taking a nap with a 5 year old. She wants to watch YouTube shows but it’s not wholesome entertainment that I feel great about her watching. When she’s so young she absorbs things and I’d like her to learn gospel principles. So this is a great option for Sunday. In addition to Book of Mormon stories, there are Bible stories, stories about church history, US history, the prophets and more.

First, sign up for Living Scriptures streaming, here.

This is the weird part – once I paid and downloaded my app I had to call Living Scriptures and get my subscription activated. They will send you an email once that’s complete.
That’s it, you’re ready to start watching.
LDS Movies on Netflix
There are a few LDS movies on Netflix – but the selection is always changing and there aren’t that many. Unfortunately there are movies that are grouped in the category that I wouldn’t recommend or watch. There also is a VERY limited selection. I only found two movies on Netflix that aren’t on Living Scriptures Streaming but a lot that are exclusive to Living Scriptures Streaming.

When reviewing Greg Trimble’s new book for dads, he reminded me that as parents we don’t teach the gospel or anything else by lecturing or teaching – children learn truth best through stories.
“When teaching your kids, the delivery is everything. They don’t want to hear you preach. They don’t want a lecture or a sermon. Instead of telling them that you’re going to teach them something…ask them if you can share with them a story that relates to the thing you’d like to teach them.”
They don’t have to be your stories only. I think this is a great way to teach with stories.
