Week 8: Come Follow Me: Book of Mormon, Teaching Ideas and Free Resources

February 17th – 23rd

2 Nephi 11 – 25

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.

  • Why would Nephi go to the tedious effort of copying a large amount of Isaiah’s writings into his record?
  • How you are helping fulfill the prophecies they describe?
    • What do you feel inspired to do to help gather God’s people?
  • How are temple covenants helping you “walk in [the Lord’s] paths?
  • How can we avoid being deceived by false ideas about good and evil?
  • What are some specific things we can do to help fill the earth with “the knowledge of the Lord”?
  • How can you help your family members “rejoice in Christ”?
  • What does it mean to walk in God’s paths?
  • Why is a mountain a good symbol for the temple?
  • We live in a world where, as Isaiah prophesied, people call evil good and good evil. How can you help the children identify such deception?
  • How can we detect his deceptions?
  • Why does Satan disguise sin?
  • Think of someone they|you would like to “persuade … to believe in Christ”
  • How can we express to others the joy that the Savior brings into our lives?

Object Lesson: Sodas, Slushies, and Spiritual Consequences

An object lesson that promises to “FREEZE” your family|students in their tracks!

When deciding on what topic to focus on for this week’s object lesson the idea in 2 Nephi 15:20 really stuck out to me:

“Wo unto them that call evil good, and good evil, that put darkness for light, and light for darkness, that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

When I stumbled across this object lesson that was printed in the March 2014 New Era, I found it to be the perfect add on to the object lessons we’ve talked about in previous weeks of this years study of the Book of Mormon through Come Follow Me:

Week 6: Agency is not Free

Week 3: Plain and Precious Truths

Don’t let the timing of this activity scare you. It’s simple chemistry, or so my research tells me 😀 Essentially, this activity gives you a little magic, a yummy treat, but most importantly an impactful and memorable lesson about one of the ways Satan uses deception to deceive us.

Materials:

Instructions:

    1. Start with a room temperature soda. You could use any temperature, but it’s easy to get a handle on how long it takes to freeze the liquid if you know your approximate starting temperature.
    2. Shake up the bottle and place it in a freezer. Do not disturb the soda while it is chilling or else it will simply freeze.
    3. After about three to three and a half hours, carefully remove the bottle from the freezer. Each freezer is a little different, so you may need to adjust the time for your conditions.
      • After about three hours in the freezer, the soda temperature will drop below freezing. But the soda will remain liquid because shaking the carbonation prolongs the freezing process.
    4. There are a couple of different ways to initiate freezing.
      • You could open the cap to release pressure, reseal the bottle, and simply turn the soda upside down. This will cause it to freeze in the bottle.
      • You could gently open the bottle, releasing the pressure slowly, and pour the soda into a chilled cup causing it to freeze into slush while you pour.
      • Pour the drink over an ice cube to get it to freeze.
      • Another option is to slowly pour the soda into a clean cup, keeping it liquified. Drop a piece of ice into the soda to initiate freezing. Here, you can watch the crystals form outward from the ice cube.

WARNING: Do not drink your supercooled liquid when it comes out of the freezer, as the liquid might expand between your teeth and injure you. Wait until it is in slush form before drinking

Don’t let the warning scare you off from trying this in your home or classroom, it’s just a friendly heads-up!

Procedure:

You may be scratching your head wondering where the application comes in… Let’s dig in.

Remember this activity will take a little scheduling|planning ahead. It will be most impactful if your family or students are able to see you|participate in shaking the soda pop… However, you could simply just tell them that before placing the soda pop in the freezer it was shaken. Give your bottle around 3 hours in the freezer. I would start this lesson around the 2 hour and 45-minute mark giving you 15 minutes to prep and set up the lesson, without giving to much leeway or allowing the bottle to be in the freezer any longer than 3 hours and 15 minutes. (If left in too long the liquid will simply freeze.)

Begin by having a discussion about choices and consequences. A GREAT review and tie in of the previous week’s materials. (2 Nephi 2 and Agency)

My 4-year-old son sadly had an impactful reminder of our ability to choose but not able to choose our consequences on Valentine’s Day. Sweet boy was given a fun Valentine’s Day Balloon and had spent the morning playing with it. It was a beautiful day so I left our backdoor open so the fresh air could fill our house. I had the feeling to warn him to be careful as he played with his balloon, that he should keep his balloon away from the open door because it could fly away. I actually reminded him multiple times of this choice and sure consequence. Feeling confident in my warning I went to the backrooms of our house to vacuum while he and his sister played in the living room. 

A few moments passed and the constant hum of the vacuum was interrupted by a blood curdling, bone-chilling, scream of fear and desperation. My heart was in my throat as I prepared for a trip to the emergency room as I rounded the corner of our hall afraid of the scene I was about to come upon. Both kids were crying. Benson was in hysterics. I quickly checked my daughter for injury grateful to find none. I then examined her brother and in between his cries, I pieced together the story. Despite warnings, and my clear explanation of what the outcome and consequence would be, Benson decided to experiment with his balloon and the open door to our back yard. After what felt like hours of agony and tears we were able to discuss choices and consequences. We may be free to choose, but agency is not free, and we are not able to choose our consequences. 

After reviewing the idea of choices and consequences ask your family or students what they know about making the choice to shake a soda? If you are dealing with littles or just want to add a little pizazz it’s not a bad idea to use a small can of soda to demonstrate what happens when you shake a soda. (Make sure to go outside for this one 😀 )

Now that there is a concrete understanding of the consequence of shaking a soda, you will throw all good judgment out the window and shake the bottle|bottles you are using until your heart’s content. Once the bottle|bottles have been properly shaken, add them to the freezer and start your timer.

About 15 minutes before it’s time to pull out your bottles the next discussion you are going to want to have is all about deception. Begin with the verse 2 Nephi: 15:20

“Wo unto them that call evil good, and good evil, that put darkness for light, and light for darkness, that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

You may even consider doing a scripture chase about Satan’s Deception: (2 Nephi 28:22).

21 And others will he apacify, and lull them away into carnal bsecurity, that they will say: All is well in Zion; yea, Zion prospereth, all is well—and thus the cdevildcheateth their souls, and leadeth them away carefully down to hell.

22 And behold, others he aflattereth away, and telleth them there is no bhell; and he saith unto them: I am no devil, for there is none—and thus he whispereth in their ears, until he grasps them with his awful cchains, from whence there is no deliverance.

Before pulling the Soda bottle out of the freezer explain that like the verses you’ve read Satan is the author of deception. He will tell you that your choices don’t lead to consequences, that there is no such thing as sin, that just a little will not matter… Discuss with your family other lies or types of deception Satan uses to “Pacify, or Flattereth away.” This should be another natural way to link last week’s object lesson about the chain links and the subtlety of the chains. 

Though the video above is focused on addiction, it gives a beautiful illustration of the need for sin to be camoflauged, or to be viewed as harmless.

“C. S. Lewis gave us a keen insight into devilish tactics. In a fictional letter, the master devil, Screwtape, instructs the apprentice devil Wormwood, who is in training to become a more experienced devil:

“You will say that these are very small sins; and doubtless, like all young tempters, you are anxious to be able to report spectacular wickedness. … It does not matter how small the sins are, provided that their cumulative effect is to edge the man away from the Light and out into the Nothing. … Indeed, the safest road to Hell is the gradual one—the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts” (The Screwtape Letters, New York: Macmillan, 1962, p. 56).

C. S. Lewis also wrote: “A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is. … You find out the strength of a wind by trying to walk against it, not by lying down” (Mere Christianity, New York: Macmillan, 1960, p. 124).”

-Elder James E. Faust

So what are we to do with all of these lies, counterfeits, half-truths, and twisted lies. Surely, in today’s world, you have felt yourself asking, “What is truth?” Consider watching this video and discussing the absolute necessity of the Holy Ghost when determining Truth.

 

Application|Discusion:

So, what is this soda sensation all about? This activity is a lesson about deception. Nobody works harder at deception than the adversary, and one of the ways he deceives us is to convince us that our actions have no consequences. The prophet Nephi taught: “And behold, others he flattereth away, and telleth them there is no hell; and he saith unto them: I am no devil, for there is none—and thus he whispereth in their ears, until he grasps them with his awful chains, from whence there is no deliverance”

Ask your students or family what they think will happen when you pull the soda from the freezer, what changes have likely happened. Likely, they will expect to see a frozen substance. Ask them what they think will happen after you open frozen soda? When you pull the soda from the freezer let your family or students notice that the substance is STILL liquid. This is where you need to make the parallel.

Now it’s time to bring out a soda from the freezer. Handle it carefully without jarring or shaking it, which could result in premature freezing. Ask your family if they notice anything unusual about this soda, which should appear perfectly normal if you found and used the right freeze time.

Very slowly, remove the lid. Ask them again if it still looks like a regular soda. (It should.)

There will come times in your life where you will be tempted to turn from the light, you will think or justify or rationalize that there will be no consequence from this action. This is a lie that Satan would have you believe. Connect the lie to the still liquid like soda. Satan wants you to believe that shaking the soda or making a bad choice will lead to no consequence.

Here’s the jaw-dropper. Slowly pour the soda into a chilled cup. As your soda leaves the bottle, the below-freezing beverage finally has a chance to freeze. It turns into an instant slushie as soon as it hits the chilled cup—completely unlike the liquid it had been only seconds earlier. It’s something you have to see to believe.

Tell your family that the soda had been sitting in the freezer for several hours. You can point out that while at first it didn’t appear as if the soda had changed in any way, its time in the freezer had a definite consequence.

In a similar way, consequences from not keeping the commandments aren’t always immediately visible. For example, if somebody you know starts secretly breaking the Word of Wisdom, you might not notice a visible difference in them right away. But we shouldn’t be deceived. Spiritual consequences are real whenever we break—or keep—the commandments.

Perhaps here you could ask your family to list some of the unseen dangers of breaking the commandments—and even some positive consequences of keeping them.

After the discussion, you might end with the following quote from President Thomas S. Monson: “My young friends, be strong. The philosophies of men surround us. The face of sin today often wears the mask of tolerance. Do not be deceived; behind that facade is heartache, unhappiness, and pain. You know what is right and what is wrong, and no disguise, however appealing, can change that” (“Examples of Righteousness,” Ensign, May 2008, 65).

In this life, we’re free to make choices but we’re not free to choose the consequences that follow (see For the Strength of Youth [2011], 2).

If you have older children I definitely recommend taking the time to watch this Spiritual Crocodile Video, from an excerpt of a Boyd K. Packer talk. The same talk Bednar referenced in a General Conference when talking about his personal experience in Africa. If you have younger children consider stopping the video at 3:40 minute mark and discussing what you’ve watched and how it applies. If you keep watching know that the video will show the crocodile catching its prey! 

Also… The teacher in me can’t help but post the terms, vocabulary and science related to what’s happening. SO… In case you, are interested… Check this out.

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.

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 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 coloring page.

Testimony Time Capsule: Suggestion by the Ensign

Nephi reminds us that we “talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ” so that our children know who to turn to (see 2 Nephi 25:26).

  1. Select several stories of Christ that the children are familiar with.

  2. Digitally record each person summarizing one of these stories and sharing their feelings about the Savior.

  3. If prompting is needed, ask family members to describe Christ and why we love Him.

  4. Store the recordings for safekeeping and send them to grandparents or other family members.

Discussion: How can sharing our testimonies of Christ strengthen us and our future generations?

“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).”

What did your Ward do for Father’s Day this year?
...

“I know the love of God. It is one of the very few things I do know with absolute certainty. I think suffering on this earth is an indication of God’s trust, God’s love. I think it is an indication that God does not want us to be simply obedient children playing forever under his hand, but wants us able to become more like himself. In order to do that we have to know reality. We have to be real ourselves and not dependent on externals. If we are to be like God, we cannot live forever in fear that we may meet something that will scare us or that will hurt us. We have to be able, as he is able, to meet what comes of others’ agency, and of living in a lawful universe that allows creation of a habitable planet only when it allows also the difficulties that come in natural operations of such a planet.”
-Francine R. Bennion
...

“Now all this suffering might indeed be unfair if everything ended at death, but it doesn’t. Life is not like a one-act play. It has three acts. We had a past act, when we were in the premortal existence; and now we have a present act, which is mortality; and we will have a future act, when we return to God. … We were sent into mortality to be tested and tried [see Abraham 3:25]. … “Our past and present sufferings cannot, as Paul said, ‘be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us’ [Romans 8:18] in the eternities. ‘For after much tribulation come the blessings. Wherefore the day cometh that ye shall be crowned with much glory.’ [D&C 58:4.] So tribulation is useful in the sense that it is helpful to get into the celestial kingdom”
-James E. Faust
...

Reflecting on Father’s Day... it’s incredible to me that the Supreme Creator of the Universe chooses to be addressed as “Father”...
.
. “Father’ is the noblest title a man can be given. It is more than a biological role. It signifies a patriarch, a leader, an exemplar, a confidant, a teacher, a hero, a friend and, ultimately, a perfect being.” Robert L. Backman
...

For whatever reason, I’ve had this false idea in my mind that when you are on the Lord’s errand, a path paved in smooth simplicity would be laid out before you… This simply isn’t the case. Consider Nephi’s path and the bumps and stumbling blocks placed in his way… Consider Abinadi and his ultimate sacrifice of meekness and obedience… Consider Joseph Smith and the reestablishment of the early Church… Now consider Alma the younger and his dealings with Ammoniahah… Looking ahead, look what happens to Amulek once he finally decides to “Know” the Gospel.

It’s so interesting to me that when the angel is sent to Alma to lift him up and send him back to Ammoniahah a key detail that in my mind would have eased Alma’s mind is left out. Notice how the angel made no mention of Amulek. There is no mention of comfort that someone has been prepared for you, and is waiting for you. Instead, Alma acts “speedily” not knowing what he will do, ACTING in faith, hoping that the Lord will provide a way.
-
To me this illustrates the idea of the Lord’s hand cautiously guiding us even when we can’t see it. I’ve seen this concept in my own life, however, it isn’t until I have the hindsight of the future to look back and realize his hand was there all along. There is something to choosing to act on our own. Heading in the right direction, even though we don’t know how we will be delivered, having faith that we WILL be delivered.
...

“Each of us also carries a load. Our individual load is comprised of demands and opportunities, obligations and privileges, afflictions and blessings, and options and constraints. Two guiding questions can be helpful as we periodically and prayerfully assess our load... [...]Sometimes we mistakenly may believe that happiness is the absence of a load. But bearing a load is a necessary and essential part of the plan of happiness... [...] Not only does the Atonement of Jesus Christ overcome the effects of the Fall of Adam and make possible the remission of our individual sins and transgressions, but His Atonement also enables us to do good and become better in ways that stretch far beyond our mortal capacities. Most of us know that when we do things wrong and need help to overcome the effects of sin in our lives, the Savior has made it possible for us to become clean through His redeeming power. But do we also understand that the Atonement is for faithful men and women who are obedient, worthy, and conscientious and who are striving to become better and serve more faithfully? I wonder if we fail to fully acknowledge this strengthening aspect of the Atonement in our lives and mistakenly believe we must carry our load all alone—through sheer grit, willpower, and discipline and with our obviously limited capacities.” Excerpts from Bear Your Burdens with Ease, -Bednar ...

With there being a focus on Missionary work this week for Come Follow Me, and the fact that it isn’t always rosy… I thought a good addition to the lesson would be to write a letter to a missionary. Maybe this is a family member, a ward member, or someone new entirely, but a message from home can be an easy way to show support for those serving in the mission field. To help with this activity I created a fun and editable missionary letter template. The template should simplify the writing process and take the guesswork out of what to write. You can either type directly onto the slide, and print or email. Or you can begin by printing a hard copy and writing directly onto the page.

Use this with your family, your students, the primary, or young men| young women! This works great as a zoom call activity or fun activity at home! I’ve also included a link to inkablinka.com where Kristin has uploaded some awesome printables going over missionary letter dos and donts!
...

Highlighting one of my most treasured scriptures this week. President Bednar said it best: “Thus, the Savior has suffered not just for our sins and iniquities—but also for our physical pains and anguish, our weaknesses and shortcomings, our fears and frustrations, our disappointments and discouragement, our regrets and remorse, our despair and desperation, the injustices and inequities we experience, and the emotional distresses that beset us. There is no physical pain, no spiritual wound, no anguish of soul or heartache, no infirmity or weakness you or I ever confront in mortality that the Savior did not experience first. In a moment of weakness we may cry out, “No one knows what it is like. No one understands.” But the Son of God perfectly knows and understands, for He has felt and borne our individual burdens. And because of His infinite and eternal sacrifice (see Alma 34:14), He has perfect empathy and can extend to us His arm of mercy. He can reach out, touch, succor, heal, and strengthen us to be more than we could ever be and help us to do that which we could never do relying only upon our own power. Indeed, His yoke is easy and His burden is light.” ...

To help you with your study this week, I’ve created a printable with all of the questions posed in chapter 5. (Around 50!) For me, this gives me something concrete, that I can hold, look at, and mark up. You will notice that many of the questions aren’t as simple as a yes and no, similar to many of the questions asked in Come Follow Me. I’ve left a space next to each question for you to use as you wish. Yes, it could be a place for a checkmark, but the more I grow, the more I learn that this is not a checklist Gospel. Rather, it’s growth, progression, and all about movement whether that be forward or backward. I wonder if you may even choose to “check” one of the questions that you choose to further study, ponder, or focus on for the week.

Recently I was asked to share my thoughts on the Come Follow Me program during the past few months for the LDS Website in the UK. @churchofjesuschrist -
Frankly speaking the invitation made me a little sick. My biggest fear is that it would seem like we were the perfect little family with the perfect little program in place, complete with cutouts and crafts, deep discussions and daily reflection....
-
This couldn't be more from the truth. Yes, I do a weekly round up of ideas and resources for Come Follow Me that I publish on my website, but that doesn't mean that it always happens within my own home. When it does happen it typically looks like a bedtime story, or a video played while the kids eat lunch... When it does happen I often fall asleep while trying to catch up on last week’s reading... Most of all, when it does happen, I notice a difference within my home. This program is divinely inspired, the simple timing of everything amplifies it's divine origin to me. -
Art by @_thecoloramber one of the most beautiful illustrations of a family I've ever laid eyes on. Words fall short on this piece. It's my absolute favorite.

“And thus they become new creatures; and unless they do this, they can in nowise inherit the kingdom of God” (Mosiah 27:25–26).

”Conversion is a process, not an event. Conversion comes as a result of righteous efforts to follow the Savior. These efforts include exercising faith in Jesus Christ, repenting of sin, being baptized, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end in faith. Although conversion is miraculous and life changing, it is a quiet miracle. Angelic visitations and other spectacular occurrences do not bring conversion. Even Alma, who saw an angel, became converted only after he “fasted and prayed many days” for a witness of the truth (Alma 5:46). And Paul, who saw the resurrected Savior, taught that “no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost” (1 Corinthians 12:3).”

This week in #comefollowme has me thinking a lot about the ripple effects of our choices. Consider the #rippleeffects of your Covenants.

“What is the source of such moral and spiritual power, and how do we obtain it? The source is God. Our access to that power is through our covenants with Him. A covenant is an agreement between God and man, an accord whose terms are set by God (see Bible Dictionary, “Covenant,” 651). In these divine agreements, God binds Himself to sustain, sanctify, and exalt us in return for our commitment to serve Him and keep His commandments.”
