Week 7: Come Follow Me: Book of Mormon, Teaching Ideas and Free Resources

February 10th – 16th

2 Nephi 6 – 10

Questions to Ponder:

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.

  • What can I do to more faithfully “wait” for the Savior and His promised blessings?
  • What do you feel prompted by the Spirit to do in response to these warnings and invitations?
  • What do you find that gives you hope?
    •  What will you do to remember these things when you feel discouraged?
  • How does the Lord turn the deserts of our lives into gardens?
  • How can Isaiah’s encouraging words to the people of Zion strengthen us in our efforts to become more faithful disciples of Jesus Christ?
    • How is waking up and getting dressed similar to what God wants us to do spiritually?
  • What could your family do to better understand the magnitude of Jesus Christ’s “infinite atonement”?
    • How is the Savior’s Atonement infinite?
  • What are some examples of “the vainness, and the frailties, and the foolishness of men”? (verse 28).
    • What can we do to place more value on the things of God and less on the things of the world?
  • How are sins like chains?
    • How does the Savior help us shake them off?
  • When have you felt happy because you made the right choice?

Object Lesson: Shake off the Chains

The idea for this object lesson came from the suggestion of the Come Follow Me manual this week. I actually had a completely different activity|visual in mind however this one struck me, and caused me to change course. The excerpt from the manual is below:

2 Nephi 9:45

“Your family might enjoy making a paper chain and then taking turns putting it on and shaking it off. How are sins like chains? How does the Savior help us shake them off?”

I think this is a great activity because it reinforces a lot of the language used the previous week. We are going to alter the activity slightly by writing down different ways we can be bound by sin, (or missing the mark) on each paper chain. This takes it a step further by allowing you to better discuss and apply the scriptures to your own family’s needs. I’ll give suggestions, however the more specific to the needs of YOUR family the better.

I’ve created a document that will allow you a space to write on each paper chain segment and see the lines to cut it out. However, this activity can be done with any blank piece of paper!

To begin this lesson, I would start by reading 2 Nephi 9:45Focus on the idea of chains. Discuss as a family where they have seen chains. What chains are used for today, what they might have been used for in Nephi’s day…etc. Consider also coming up with phrases or adjectives that would describe chains… Heavy, strong, unbreakable, Captive, Slave…etc. Once everyone has a good grasp on what the literal meaning of a chain is I would do a bit of a scripture chase to see where else “Chains” have been used or mentioned in the scriptures, and then from there dive into the figurative meaning and application of what chains can be in our own lives.

“Chain” Scripture Chase:

***Notice when Moses describes seeing Satan, what is Satan holding… What does Satan do?

After the scripture chase, it’s time to better explore the application and figurative meaning of chains in our own lives. Take this time to write something on one of the chainlinks that can bind us. Considering 2 Nephi 28:21 the idea you write down may not pose any immediate danger or even a large consequence however when done over and over, (consider adding a link to the chain each time, this idea of habit can begin to form a chain or a weight that is inescapable without the help of our loving Savior.

Possible Chain Links:

Apathy (Not Caring), Floating along not making the effort to progress or become better.

Distracted: Becoming so busy, and overscheduled that there is simply no time for Godly pursuits…

“There are Church members who are steeped in lethargy. They neither drink nor commit the sexual sins. They do not gamble nor rob nor kill. They are good citizens and splendid neighbors, but spiritually speaking they seem to be in a long, deep sleep. They are doing nothing seriously wrong except in their failures to do the right things to earn their exaltation. To such people as this, the words of Lehi might well apply: ‘O that ye would awake; awake from a deep sleep, yea, even from the sleep of hell, and shake off the awful chains by which ye are bound, which are the chains which bind the children of men, that they are carried away captive down to the eternal gulf of misery and woe’.”                                     -Spencer W. Kimball

Anything that can lead to a bad habit: Word of Wisdom, Excess Sugar, Excess Caffeine, Addictive Substances, Medications, Pornography, Excess use of Social Media, Excess use of Gaming, Excess use of Screen Time…etc. Discuss how habits and addictions actually rob us of our Agency. The very thing heaven went to war over.

Inappropriate images through media, literature, television, social media…etc

Inappropriate language through literature, music, or speech…etc

Inappropriate use of time… Procrastination.

Remember Sin can be described as the chains by which we are bound. However, it can be helpful to use the Hebrew translation of Sin when brainstorming these chain links… “Missing the Mark” How do you and I DAILY, WEEKLY, MONTHLY… miss the mark. 

Not making time for meaningful scripture study.

Not making time for meaningful Family activity and connections.

Assuming the worst in others.

Talking badly about others.

Talking badly about OURSELF.

Playing the Victim.

Not being Kind.

Being Crude, brash or harsh.

Anger.

Bitterness.

Arrogance.

Pride.

Fault Finding.

Criticism.

Lying.

The list can literally go on and on and on and on. What applies specifically to your family, or your students? ***Please make sure to make the “flaxen cord” connection. Most of the time these chains don’t start out as a big, heavy, binding, chain. Rather they start as a single chain link. As you add to that chain link upon link, you may not even feel the weight because it is so gradual. Consider what Lehi plead with Laman and Lemuel… WAKE UP! The scary thing about the gradualness, and carefulness of the chains is that often times we don’t even realize that we are sleeping.

This address by Marvin J. Ashton is really exceptional and gives a great list of examples and ideas of chains in someone’s life. Consider watching the video together and listing out the different chain links.

After you have compiled your chainlinks. Work together to glue, tape, or staple together your chainlinks. From there you can take turns wrapping each other in the paper chains. Once the fun has been had it’s important to discuss how to remove those chains in your life.

One may ask, “What must I do to break the chains that bind me and lead me away from the path our Savior would have us follow?” These chains cannot be broken by those who live in lust and self-deceit. They can only be broken by people who are willing to change. We must face up to the hard reality of life that damaging chains are broken only by people of courage and commitment who are willing to struggle and weather the pain… the work of change belongs to the person. Most often, it is plain hard work. To change or break some of our chains even in a small way means to give up some behavior or habits that have been very important to us in the past… Every worthy change means risk—the risk of losing an old and damaging habit for a new and improved way of life… Even the chains of fear can be broken by those who will humbly seek God’s help and strength… A truly wise person will constantly move forward, striving for self-improvement, knowing that daily repentance is needed for progress. Those who are committed to improvement break chains by having the courage to try. Those who live without commitment mistakenly think it is easier to adapt their life-styles to the weight and restrictions of chains rather than to put forth the effort to change. God help us to shake off and break the chains with which we are bound. With God’s help they can be shaken off by faith, works, prayer, constant commitment, and self-discipline. May we have the will and strength to shake off the chains that would control and destroy our progress, I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.”

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.)

 

The Illustrated Scripture Stories and Podcast won’t pick back up until Enos… So I wanted to share some other fun resources I’ve found that are PERFECT for teaching Come Follow Me to Toddlers and Young Children.

Click Here to Download the Handout|Activity

I am abslolutely 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 Terry the Turtle and our need for Christ’s Atonement.

You can even head to their website to download discussion questions to go along with the video and a fun activity page that flips Terry onto his shell.

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.

Activity Suggestions:

Complete the Chain, object lesson and activity described above.

I love these Graphic Organizers by Ministering Simply

Cupboard Counter Activity suggestion by the Ensign. Goes along with the Come Follow Me Activity of doing something to better understand the idea of Christ’s Atonement being Infinite.  

Christ’s Atonement is “an infinite atonement” (2 Nephi 9:7), but what does infinity mean?

  1. Open your cupboards and find various containers of cooking foods, such as:

    • Sugar

    • Salt

    • Rice

  1. Take turns guessing how many grains of each item would go into one cup. For example:

    • Sugar = 960,000

    • Salt = 2,000,000

    • Rice = 8,000

Discussion: Name other things of which there is a numberless amount (sand at the beach, stars in the sky, cells in the body). How is the reach of Christ’s Atonement greater than all of these? Why is it called infinite?

Coloring Page based on the 3rd Article of Faith: “We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, All mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.”

Individual Study & Extension

Watch or Listen To:

Ever wish you could sit in on a lecture by THE scholar, Hugh Nibley… You. Can. Watch the video above!

Fair Mormon Lecture by Jeff Lindsay that focuses on the theme of “Arise from the Dust”

 

I LOVE Sheri Dew. This is a great address given at BYU again she lists off ideas for chain links that we may not have considered to resort to a type of bondage.

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!”

🎉🎉VISION BOARD G.I.V.E.A.W.A.Y
YOU GUYS!!! This one turned out better than I expected 😍😍😍 EVERYONE NEEDS A VISION BOARD.
🍋 TEACHERS
🍋 STUDENTS
🍋....EVERYONE
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!

Did anyone else see @latterdayfamily suggestion for recreating the first vision using rocks! Such a fun and creative idea💛 She used Canvas, making it a durable piece of art that can be displayed for the year. Absolutely LOVED this idea.

If Joseph Smith’s transcendent experience in the Sacred Grove teaches us anything, it is that the heavens are open and that God speaks to His children. The Prophet Joseph Smith set a pattern for us to follow in resolving our questions. Drawn to the promise of James that if we lack wisdom we may ask of God, the boy Joseph took his question directly to Heavenly Father. He sought personal revelation, and his seeking opened this last dispensation.”

“In like manner, what will your seeking open for you? What wisdom do you lack? What do you feel an urgent need to know or understand? Follow the example of the Prophet Joseph. Find a quiet place where you can regularly go. Humble yourself before God. Pour out your heart to your Heavenly Father. Turn to Him for answers and for comfort” (Ensign, May 2018).

-President Russel M. Nelson
...

Did anyone else wonder if reading the Doctrine and Covenants would be as relatable and comparable to reading the Book of Mormon last year in relations to the state of the world....
-
And then you read about Joseph Smith’s experience....
✅Chaos
✅Differences of Opinions
✅Not knowing what’s truth
✅People that should have been his friend treating him unkindly because of beliefs.....
If there has ever been a time in my life where I’ve so desperately yearned to know what is truth and what is not, it would be now. Grateful for the restored gospel.

It was just me & the kiddos last Saturday. I had put off a lot of projects over Christmas break & was hoping to dedicate the majority of that day to getting caught up. After my kids had finished a movie I decided the next “keep em happy” activity would be a bath w/ one of their new bath bombs. As I worked I asked the kids to pick out a bath bomb & toys they would like to play with as they tubbed. The kids grew impatient as I struggled to pull myself away from the computer. Time passed & baby Grace woke up fixed on a feeding. Benson & Lovie got antsy realizing it would be even longer before I could start their tubs. I assured them I’d help as soon as sis was done & reminded them to find their bath time tools they had previously picked out. At some point between the picking out & waiting for mom, Benson had lost his bath bomb. The anxiety filled him as the reality of the disappearance of his bath bomb set in. Desperately he began to search as I helplessly sat in the chair nursing Grace. After a valiant effort he returned to no avail. I told him to say a prayer, & try again which he quickly, humbly & obediently did. Again, another valiant effort of searching commenced. This time I offered my own silent pleading that Heavenly Father would answer his prayers & that Benson would be able to find it on his own, without my interference. Benson returned to the living room deflated and defeated. Still no sign. He sat on the ground, & began to complain & look for something else to fill his attention. At this point I told him something to the effect that Heavenly Father cares about what you care about, so if finding this bath bomb is important to you, it’s important to him... “however,” & I quote, “you have to do the work, it (the bath bomb) won’t just fall from the sky.” Inspired once again, Benson stood up & got to work. Lovie offering a sweet vocal prayer of encouragement behind him, they were off. Not moments later Benson was again at the Christmas Tree, a place he had looked again, & again, & again. This time his small wooden rocker he intended to use as a stool bumped the tree, and would you believe it... thud. The missing bath bomb literally fell from the sky. ...

Thank you all for your patience as I take the time to refocus and reground myself. This Christmas season more than ever I've felt more distant and distracted from what truly matters. I had the best of intentions of this year being more Christ centered, and my intentions remained only that. I plan to take these next few days to sure up my foundation and refocus my attention on Him. *If you want to read/see the story that struck a chord in my soul, head to my story/teaching account @teachingonlemonlane

Each year our family gives a favorite Christmas book to some of our loved ones. (I wish I was able to get my hands on more of them!😭) With the passing of author Tomie dePaola, it seemed appropriate to give one of his. Reading this book, THIS year, made me cry. I struggled to make it through as it highlighted my weaknesses and put into words what I've been trying to set aside and not deal with. Last year I had great intentions of celebrating a more Christ centered Christmas, December arrived and again my intentions remained only that. Reading this story struck a cord in my soul. I'm old Befana. There may only be a few days left until Christmas, but I'm going to be intentional with them. On that note, I'll be taking a break from social and working to reground myself with the foundation that matters, and refocus my attention on Him. Love you all, MERRY CHRISTMAS!
