Come Follow Me: Book of Mormon, Teaching Ideas and Free Resources

ALMA 17 – 22


Each Come Follow Me Lesson asks important and reflective questions. When I first began my individual study these questions threw me off. Simply because many of these questions required so much depth and individual reflection in order to answer honestly. My first approach to come follow me was to get in, get out, get it done, check it off. These questions simply didn’t allow me to do so. In fact, I felt a little sick when I would read a question like, “How does the spirit speak to you?” and I wouldn’t know the answer right away. After a time, and pondering on that specific question I realized IT’S OKAY. In fact, I think these questions were meant to be set aside, thought about, and pondered. When we try and come up with the quick easy, obvious, answer, we are depriving ourselves of an opportunity to reflect, ponder, pray, and RECEIVE REVELATION. Is this not the whole reason for Come Follow Me? Are we not trying to finetune and recognize how we, and how to receive personal revelation.

So each week I will list out some of the questions issued in Come Follow Me. Maybe you pick to ponder about all of them, maybe you pick just one. Whatever you do, ponder on this for the ENTIRE week. Pray about it, discuss it with loved ones, then at the start of the new week, take the time to write down your impressions or thoughts, share them with your family, testify of powerful insights.

  • Have you ever been reunited with old friends and felt the way Alma did—overjoyed that they had stayed strong in the faith? (see Alma 17:1–2).
    • What do you learn from the sons of Mosiah about how to keep your faith in the gospel and commitment to it strong?
    • As you ponder the spiritual strength of the sons of Mosiah, what do you feel inspired to do?
  • How did the spiritual preparation of the sons of Mosiah affect their work with the Lamanites?
    • Perhaps you could use this opportunity to evaluate your efforts to teach the gospel “with power and authority of God” (Alma 17:3).
  • How can you be an instrument in God’s hands to bless others? What do you learn from their example that gives you courage to do what the Lord needs you to do?
  • (see Alma 22:1–16). What do these verses suggest to you about the truths you can share with others to help them seek a testimony of the gospel?
  • What does Alma 19:36 suggest to you about the Lord’s character?
    • When have you felt the Lord’s arm extended toward you?
    • How can you help those you love feel His mercy?
  • What will your family do to follow the examples of Ammon and Abish?
  • Why do we think that Ammon taught Lamoni these truths first?
    • Why is it important for us to have a testimony of these truths?
  • What can we learn from how Lamoni responded to his father?
    • How can we follow Lamoni’s example in standing up for what is right?
  • What was he willing to give up in order to know God? (see verse 18).
    • Perhaps family members could each write a plan to give up something in order to know God more fully.


Abish. When the Book of Mormon gives us an account of a strong faithful women, we need to take the time to focus and study on her account and experience. Abish and the Quess are two of my favorite accounts in the Book of Mormon. You’re really in for a treat this week. There are lots of resources available to supplement, guide and help you teach Abish’s account and better learn and understand the depth of her testimony. No matter the age you are preparing for, there is something for everyone! I’ll link a few of my favorites below. I’d love to hear what you think of these articles and videos, share your thoughts in the comments!

One of my favorite thoughts from the Article, Abish: A Common Servant, a True Testimony:

“Abish chose to act. In the face of contention that already had led one man to lose his life, Abish boldly went to the queen’s side and took the unconscious woman’s hand—an act that certainly drew attention from the crowd. At Abish’s touch, the queen rose to her feet and “clasped her hands, being filled with joy, speaking many words which were not understood” (Alma 19:30)…. Although we read nothing more about Abish from this point onward, the events that included Abish’s courageous actions form a turning point in the Book of Mormon—a vital transformation in the history of her people. Her one-voice role, in conjunction with the missionary work of Ammon, played a critical part in thousands of Lamanites’ lives as they were “brought to the knowledge of the Lord” (Alma 23:5).” 

“We may never know the impact our testimony might have on other people. In fact, we may wonder sometimes if our testimony can make a difference. We might even say to ourselves, “Will it really matter if I say something? I am just one person—one voice.”

Consider this excerpt from the talk by President Thomas S. Monson, “You Make A Difference.”

“The influence of your personal testimonies is ever so far-reaching. The Lord instructed: “The testimony which ye have borne is recorded in heaven for the angels to look upon; and they rejoice over you, and your sins are forgiven you” (D&C 62:3).

He also cautioned us: “With some I am not well pleased, for they will not open their mouths, but they hide the talent which I have given unto them, because of the fear of man” (D&C 60:2).

You never know when your turn will come to comply with the admonition of Peter to “be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you” (1 Pet. 3:15).”

Teaching Ideas for Toddlers & Young Children

Watch or Listen To:

With a 2-year-old and 4-year-old, I understand the STRUGGLE and the attention span you are dealing with. Below are some of my favorite videos or audio recordings|podcasts you can listen to and watch with your children. My favorites right now are the Book of Mormon Story videos.**Different from the newly released B.O.M. videos. These are illustrated and READ stories to your children. THESE are PERFECT for when everyone is strapped in the car seat. My 4-year-old now requests these over the radio. Each segment is only 2-4 minutes long. This allows us to listen, review and discuss together, and listen again throughout the week.  Many of the videos I share can be found on the Saint’s Radio Channel App. (Formerly Mormon Channel App, If you don’t already have this, DOWNLOAD NOW.)


I am absolutely LOVING the YouTube Channel, Latter Day Kids. Each week they put out a beautifully illustrated video meant for young children to be used in conjunction with the Come Follow Me Lessons. This week’s video is all about Showing Love through service! You can even head to their website to download discussion questions to go along with the video and a fun coloring page.

Ammon A Great Servant Cutouts 

Teaching Ideas for Families

Watch or Listen To:

Finding time to make Come Follow Me can be tough, it can also be tough to keep the attention of family members. The Book of Mormon videos recently released by the church are a WONDERFUL resource. 



Activity Suggestions:


Activity Suggestion from Ensign: Scattered Flocks

Read Alma 17:27–39 together. Talk about how Ammon agreed to serve King Lamoni and saved the king’s flocks that had been scattered.

  1. Sit around a table or in a circle on the floor. Put 5–10 cotton balls in the center to represent flocks, such as sheep.

  2. On the count of three, everyone tries to “scatter” the sheep by blowing on the cotton balls for about 10 seconds.

  3. To “gather” the sheep, go around the circle and have each person put the cotton ball nearest to them back in the center. As they do, ask them to share one act of service they could do for someone this week. Keep going until all the cotton balls are returned.

Discussion: What can we learn from Ammon’s example of humility? What blessings can we experience as we serve others?
