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?

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. …

😳 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.

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!”

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.

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....
