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

ALMA 53 – 63


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.

  • As you read about the stripling warriors in the following verses, look for clues about how they exercised their faith in God, what made their faith so strong, and what made the miracles possible: Alma 53:10–2256:43–48, 55–5657:20–27; and 58:39–40. The following table suggests one way you could record what you find.

    • After studying these verses, what do you feel inspired to do to exercise your faith?

  • What roles have family members and others played in building your faith?
    • What can you do to strengthen the faith of your family and friends?
  • (see Alma 58:4–9, 31–3260). What impresses you about their reactions in Alma 58:1–12, 31–37 and Alma 61
    • How can you follow their example in similar situations?
  • Alma 53:10–17 The Anti-Nephi-Lehies covenanted not to shed blood. What covenants have we made with God?
    • What do we read in Alma 53:10–17 that inspires us to be more faithful to our covenants?
  • Alma 53:20–21 How can we be more like Helaman’s young men? It might help to discuss what some of the phrases in these verses mean; for example, what does it mean to be “valiant … for strength and activity”?
    • What does it mean to “walk uprightly before [God]”?
  • Alma 58:9–11, 33, 37 In times of great need, do we turn to Heavenly Father, as the Nephite soldiers did? How did He answer their prayers?
    • How has He answered our prayers?
  • Alma 61:2, 9, 19 What do we learn from Pahoran about how to respond when we are falsely accused?
  • What are some different ways to react to trials like these? According to Alma 62:41, how do our reactions to trials affect us?


I’ve been holding onto this fun resource since JUNE! So excited to finally share it with you. This is a fun game that was put out by the Friend, known as, “Who am I.” Essentially, it is a fun game to play with your family or students that tests your knowledge on some of the people we learn about in the Book of Alma.


  1. Cut out the “It’s not me!” buttons and the “Who am I cards”.

  2. To start playing, pick one of the “Who am I cards” Don’t show anyone which card you picked! The rest of the group will try to figure it out.

  3. To figure out the mystery card, the group looks at the pictures from the page you cut the buttons out from. Then they take turns asking yes-or-no questions about what the people on the cards look like or what they did.

  4. When the group learns something that narrows down who the mystery person is, they can use the “It’s not me!” buttons to cover the eliminated pictures. For example, if they ask, “Does your person have brown hair?” and the person with the card says no, they would put “It’s not me!” buttons on everyone with brown hair.

  5. After figuring out who the mystery person is, read the story from the card out loud to the group. Then play again by clearing off the buttons and having someone else pick a new card.

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 All Things Denoting there is a God! You can even head to their website to download discussion questions to go along with the video and a fun coloring page.

Activity Suggestions from the Friend:

  • Be Brave and Trust God: For Alma 53–63

    Read Alma 57:27 together. You could also read the story of the stripling warriors on page FJ4. Then march together around the room like the stripling warriors! You could repeat the words “I can be brave and trust God” or sing “Called to Serve” (Children’s Songbook, 174–75) as you march.

 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:

Stopping Anger in Its Tracks: Object Lesson

To play the game below, print the game board. You will need a different-color small button for each stripling-warrior player (or team), and a die. Stripling warriors take turns rolling the die and moving that number of spaces on the board. When a warrior lands on a space with writing, he/she must read what it says aloud, then obey the directions or answer the question. Then the scripture reference should be looked up and read aloud. If the answer to the question was correct, the warrior gets another turn; there is no penalty for an incorrect answer. After a warrior reaches VICTORY, he/she uses his/her future turns to help the warrior farthest away, until all the stripling warriors have achieved VICTORY.

Activity Suggestion from Come Follow Me:

    • Alma 62:39–41 Here’s an object lesson that can help your family understand that we can choose to be either “hardened” or “softened” by our trials: Place a raw potato and a raw egg in a pot of boiling water. The potato and the egg represent us, and the water represents the trials we face. As the potato and egg boil, you could talk about some of the trials your family faces. What are some different ways to react to trials like these? According to Alma 62:41, how do our reactions to trials affect us? After the potato and egg are fully cooked, cut open the potato and crack open the egg to show that the same “trial” softened the potato and hardened the egg. What can our family do to be sure that our trials humble us and bring us closer to God?

Activity Suggestion from Ensign: 

  • Alma 57:19–27 Obeying Every Word:

    Read Alma 57:19–27 together and talk about how the stripling warriors were protected when they obeyed “with exactness” (verse 21).

    1. Blindfold one family member and have them stand against a wall.

    2. Place an object anywhere along the opposite wall and have the blindfolded person try to find the object in one minute without any help.

    3. After the time is up, have the person try again, except this time give them instructions to follow “with exactness.”

    Discussion: How do God’s “instructions” help us stay safe and reach our goals?
