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

Mormon 1 – 6


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.

  • Mormon recorded a weakness he saw in the Nephites: they failed to acknowledge the ways the Lord had blessed them. President Henry B. Eyring urged us “to find ways to recognize and remember God’s kindness. … Pray and ponder, asking the questions:
    • Did God send a message that was just for me?
    • Did I see His hand in my life or the lives of my children?
  • What blessings come when you acknowledge His influence?
    • What are the consequences of not acknowledging Him?
  • As you read Mormon 5:8–24 and 6:16–22, what do you learn about the consequences of sin?
    • What do you learn from these passages about Heavenly Father’s and Jesus’s feelings toward you, even when you sin?
      • How have you felt Jesus Christ reaching out to you with open arms?
        • What do you feel inspired to do as a result?
  • What does it mean to be “quick to observe”? You can find insights in Elder David A. Bednar’s article “Quick to Observe” (Ensign, Dec. 2006, 30–36).
    • How was the gift of being quick to observe a blessing to Mormon? How can it be a blessing to us?
  • Do the children in your family understand that they can develop great spiritual qualities and power even though they are young?
  • Mormon 2:18–19 What words did Mormon use to describe the world he lived in?
    • How did he maintain hope despite the wickedness around him?
      • How can our family do the same?
  • Mormon 3:12 How did Mormon feel about the people around him, even though they were wicked?
    • What can we do to develop the kind of love he had?
  • Mormon 5:2 Why might we hesitate to call upon Heavenly Father when we are struggling?
    • What can we do to rely on Heavenly Father more?
  • How is being “without Christ and God in the world” (verse 16) like being chaff in the wind?


Dear Friends,

Thank you for being so patient and kind while we welcomed our sweet baby girl into our home and settled into our new normal with a newborn. Baby Grace is as sweet as they come and we could not feel more grateful.

Excerpt from a personal post:

Gracelyn has a distinct sweetness about her. Everything about her, down to her cry is soft and cherubic. There is a peace and new depth of love she has brought to our home. She fills a gap in our family that we never knew was there. This beautiful girl was born with a full head of gorgeous strawberry hair, long pretty fingers and the sweetest button nose. She has her brother’s lips and looks like she came from the same mold as her sister.
There is a sacredness a newborn brings to a home, we’re trying our best to take it all in. Thanks to dear family and friends that have bore our load, we have been able to. I was asked by a dear friend what it’s like to have three. I told her I have no idea and to ask me again in a few weeks.
Ben had always liked the idea of the name Grace, and we thought if ever there was a time or a need for more Grace it was now. If you’re looking for a great Sunday read, that beautifully explains what Grace is I really enjoyed and learned from this one💛
Please continue to be patient with me as we get things up and going again. I won’t have the same amount of time as I did before to dedicate to these posts… So they may be a little shorter, or may not have as many resource or activity suggestions as before… However, I promise to do my best and to make sure the ones that I do post hold their weight in value. Do me a favor and comment below on the post! I LOVE to hear from you.
For this week I especially liked the object lesson suggested by @Comefollowmefamily, Click on the image to follow their account:
If you are having a hard time thinking of something new to try… Head to Trader Joes 😀 Lots of fun treats in there, try the Maple Butter. Maple Butter = Goodness.

Another great activity/habit to form would be to follow Elder Eyring’s example by taking a few moments each day to think about and WRITE down how you saw the Lord’s hand in your life that day. It is especially appropriate and timely as we approach Thanksgiving. Take the challenge to jot something down every day for the month of November. Do this is your own Journal, or use the Free Download I’ve included below.

Come Follow Me Manual Prompts:

Mormon recorded a weakness he saw in the Nephites: they failed to acknowledge the ways the Lord had blessed them. President Henry B. Eyring urged us “to find ways to recognize and remember God’s kindness. … Pray and ponder, asking the questions:

  • Did God send a message that was just for me?
  • Did I see His hand in my life or the lives of my children?

What blessings come when you acknowledge His influence?

What are the consequences of not acknowledging Him?

I’m reminded of Elder Andersen’s Address from the October 2020 address, Spiritually defining moments. The idea of God knowing that we recognize the specific and good things that come from Him.

Remembering these spiritually defining experiences takes us to our knees, declaring as did the Prophet Joseph: “What I received was from heaven. I know it, and I know that God knows that I know it.”5

This fun download can be completed digitally by typing into one of the 30 squares each day for the month of November, or print out the page and write in one of the spaces each day.

I heard in my mindnot in my own voicethese words: Im not giving you these experiences for yourself. Write them down. [] I wrote down a few lines every day for years. I never missed a day no matter how tired I was or how early I would have to start the next day. Before I would write, I would ponder this question: Have I seen the hand of God reaching out to touch us or our children or our family today?

-Henry B. Eyring

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 or the Come Follow Me Manual:

  • Play a game in which the children repeat basic actions that you do. Then show pictures of things Jesus did, and talk about how we can follow Him (see Gospel Art Book, nos. 33–3541–42). Discuss ways Mormon followed Jesus Christ—for example, by teaching the gospel, encouraging people to obey God, and loving others.
  • Read Mormon 3:3 and 9 to the children, and explain that the Nephites had not recognized that Heavenly Father had blessed them. Help the children think of blessings Heavenly Father has given them. Show pictures or objects to give them ideas. What can we do today to show we are thankful to Heavenly Father for our blessings?
    • Help the children think of blessings Heavenly Father has given them, and ask them to draw pictures of some of these blessings. Invite them to hang their pictures somewhere at home where they can see them and remember that Heavenly Father blesses them in many ways. You could also invite them to identify blessings that come from Heavenly Father as they sing the first verse of “I Thank Thee, Dear Father” (Children’s Songbook, 7).
  • Ask each child to draw a person on the board, and point out how each person they drew looks different from the others. Draw a large heart surrounding all the drawings. Help the children understand that Heavenly Father wants us to love all people. Read Mormon 3:12, emphasizing the words “love” and “loved.” What did Mormon do to show his love for others?

 Teaching Ideas for Families

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. ***Filming has recently been postponed due to Covid 19

Activity Suggestion from Come Follow Me:

  • Consider making a chart where you can record what you learn from Mormon 2:10–15 about these two types of sorrow. Your chart might look something like this:

    Godly sorrow

    Worldly sorrow

    Comes to Jesus (verse 14)

    Curses God (verse 14)

  • Do the children in your family understand that they can develop great spiritual qualities and power even though they are young? Mormon’s example could help them. Consider making a timeline of Mormon’s childhood and youth, using the ages and events given in Mormon 1:1–6, 15 and 2:1–2. As you discuss Mormon’s qualities and experiences, point out qualities your children have that inspire you and others around them.
  • Mormon 5:16–18 To help your family visualize what it means to be “driven about as chaff before the wind” (verse 16), tear a piece of paper into small pieces and let family members blow them around. Explain to them that chaff is a husk that comes off a seed, and it is light enough to be blown around. How is being “without Christ and God in the world” (verse 16) like being chaff in the wind?

Activity Suggestion from the Ensign:

  • The Open Arms of Jesus

    Read Mormon 6:17 together. Talk about what it means that Jesus has “open arms to receive [us]” when He is not physically here with us.

    1. Invite family members to draw a picture of themselves with Jesus. For younger children, use a coloring page from or the September Friend.

    2. When the pictures are finished, fold them up and put them in a bowl. Take turns picking a picture at random.

    3. When someone’s picture is chosen, have them talk about a time they have felt the Savior’s love or share something they can do to follow Jesus.

    Discussion: Talk about what you can do as a family to help each other follow Jesus and feel closer to Him. How can we be His “arms” here on earth?

Following David Whitmer’s death the Richmond Conservator wrote:

“On Sunday evening before his death he called the family and his attending physician, Dr. George W. Buchanan, to his bedside and said, “Doctor do you consider that I am in my right mind?” to which the Doctor replied, “Yes, you are in your right mind, I have just had a conversation with you.” He then addressed himself to all present and said: “I want to give my dying testimony. You must be faithful in Christ. I want to say to you all that the Bible and the record of the Nephites, (The Book of Mormon) are true, so you can say that you have heard me bear my testimony on my death bed….”

“On Monday morning he again called those present to his bedside, and told them that he had seen another vision which reconfirmed the divinity of the “Book of Mormon,” and said that he had seen Christ in the fullness of his glory and majesty, sitting upon his great white throne in heaven waiting to receive his children.[6]“

The Richmond Democrat also added this comment:

“Skeptics may laugh and scoff if they will, but no man can listen to Mr. Whitmer as he talks of his interview with the Angel of the Lord, without being most forcibly convinced that he has heard an honest man tell what he honestly believes to be true.[7]“

Oliver Cowdery, who was with the Prophet on this occasion, was filled with awe and wonder, for it was his first experience with a heavenly messenger. He wrote:

“On a sudden, as from the midst of eternity, the voice of the Redeemer spake peace to us, while the vail was parted and the angel of God came down clothed with glory, and delivered the anxiously looked for message, and the keys of the gospel of repentance!—What joy! what wonder! what amazement! While the world was racked and distracted—while millions were groping as the blind for the wall, and while all men were resting upon uncertainty, as a general mass, our eyes beheld—our ears heard.

“So, clearly, this was not a quid pro quo in the development of the final Book of Mormon product. It was not tit for tat, this for that—you give me 116 pages of manuscript and I’ll give you 142 pages of printed text. Not so. We got back more than we lost. And it was known from the beginning that it would be so. It was for a wiser purpose. We do not know exactly what we missed in the 116 pages, but we do know that what we received on the small plates was the personal declarations of three great witnesses, three of the great doctrinal voices of the Book of Mormon, testifying that Jesus is the Christ. …

-Elder Holland

Fear Not, Little Flock; Do Good. Has been on repeat in my mind since reading Doctrine and Covenants 6. It just felt so... Relevant.
I decided to create a piece centered on the verses that felt so delicate and powerful all at the same time.

Fear not; only believe. This is a time to make resolutions that will be binding upon you. This is a season to set standards that will hold you to the right course and make you happy now and in the years that follow. Remember, there is no happiness in wickedness. There is no happiness in sin. There is no happiness in disobedience. There is no happiness in going contrary to the teachings of the Church.

😳 Be right back.... I’m off to read section 4 again, but slower 😬 Anybody else feel the same way after reading this quote?!

“[Doctrine and Covenants 4] is very short, only seven verses, but it contains sufficient counsel and instruction for a lifetime of study. No one has yet mastered it. {…}Perhaps there is no other revelation in all our scriptures that embodies greater instruction pertaining to the manner of qualification of members of the Church for the service of God, and in such condensed form than this revelation. It is as broad, as high and as deep as eternity.

(Church History and Modern Revelation, – President Joseph F.Smith

The most beautiful illustration by @paigepayne_creations Keep reading for some of the most powerful quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King’s powerful, “I have a Dream,” speech:
“I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream.”
“I have a dream that one day right there in Alabama little black boys and little black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.”
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed — we hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
“I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.”
“In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds.”
“When we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: “Free at last! Free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

YOU GUYS!!! This one turned out better than I expected 😍😍😍 EVERYONE NEEDS A VISION BOARD.
This became more and more apparent as I created this product and researched the value in having one. Due to it’s late debut in the #goalsetting season you can snag it at 50% off (the lowest price it will EVER be).
In a nutshell, you and your students will create a digital vision board that will act as a daily reminder when you set it as your computer, tablet, or smart phone’s new wallpaper or lock screen! I’ve created 26 EASY to use templates that create completely customizable and BEAUTIFUL designs, along with over 150 moveable “stickers” to make something truly eye catching (one of the requirements of an effective vision board) If that weren’t enough, I wanted to make sure you had the support materials to provide a really complete and educational project. So I’ve also included over 30 support activities, video tutorials, and extensions. Students will learns about vision boards, what makes them effective, the elements of a wellness, their circle of control, SMART goal setting.... and MORE! I know you are going to love this and so will your students. Even more, I know this has the potential to make a difference and lead to growth, and that is pretty satisfying. I’ve been working hard on this beauty and I NEED to get it in some classrooms!

Looking for an activity that’s SURE to bring the spirit of Elijah into your heart while you study Doctrine and Covenants Section 2 for #comefollowme this week. I’ve got two @familysearch activities guaranteed to make your heart swell, both take less than 30 seconds, and absolutely no family history know how is required. Trust me, I’m as novice as they come.
The first activity requires you to upload a picture of yourself, it will then calculate who you look like the most in your family tree! Sarah Mae Eden was a consistent front runner in my results, which sharing the same middle name Mae, felt extra serendipitous.
Head to this week’s blog post for the second @familysearch activity idea and more details! Comment below who you look the most like, or tag a friend💛

I was so excited when I saw @angiemaek had released a new song. (Composer of My Own Sacred Grove) I was even MORE excited when I realized it was about Family History, then I was the MOST excited when I realized this week’s Come Follow Me focused on Elijah’s promise to turn their hearts to their fathers 💛
Head to this week’s blog post to listen! Thank you again @angiemaek for sharing your talents with us. Absolutely beautiful 💛

This isn’t the first time this has happened. In fact, as I look back I can think of a handful of times where something similar has happened, in relation to preparing these posts or hoping they will come together.

You see, I’ve been praying, sometimes as a formal prayer, but mostly a plea from the depths of my heart, that Heavenly Father would help me to figure out how to make these weekly posts work. Because genuinely, I WANT to do them. They are good for my soul. However, putting these posts together takes a lot of sacrifice in the sense of time and dedicated thought, which as a mother with 3 young children, and a business on the side, time and dedicated thought are two of my most precious and rare resources....

Did you catch this week’s free printables and activities for Come Follow Me?! This coloring page of Joseph Smith and Emma, melts my heart.
Side Note: Who has used @familysearch Famous Relative app? It’s the PERFECT family activity for this week with the focus being on #familyhistory
You may be asking what this little side note has to do with this coloring page... well through the #familysearch I found I’m related to BOTH Joesph and Emma!
Head to this week’s blog post for more information and a link to the activity, then comment below with a famous relative In YOUR family tree!
