Week 3 COME FOLLOW ME: Doctrine and Covenants – TEACHING IDEAS & RESOURCES | D&C Section 2

Joseph Smith History 1 – 26

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.

  • Joseph would bring forth the Book of Mormon; what have we been asked to do with it?
  • Joseph would receive priesthood keys to turn the hearts of the children to their fathers; how are we turning our hearts to our ancestors?
  • Joseph was told of prophecies that would soon be fulfilled; what is our part in helping to fulfill them?
  • When we take part in God’s work, we can expect to face opposition and even persecution, just as the Prophet did. But we can also have faith that the Lord will make us instruments in His hands, just as He did for Joseph.
  • As you read Joseph Smith—History 1:27–33, consider that God has a work for you to do, as He did for Joseph Smith. Ponder this invitation from President Russell M. Nelson:
    • “Ask your Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, how He feels about you and your mission here on earth. If you ask with real intent, over time the Spirit will whisper the life-changing truth to you. … I promise you that when you begin to catch even a glimpse of how your Heavenly Father sees you and what He is counting on you to do for Him, your life will never be the same!” (“Becoming True Millennials
  • COME FOLLOW ME: DOCTRINE AND COVENANTS – TEACHING IDEAS & RESOURCES | D&C 2; Joseph Smith—History 1:27–65

    You may sometimes feel the way Joseph did in verses 28–29. What can you learn from Joseph’s example about what to do when your actions are not consistent with the work God has called you to do?

  • As you read Joseph Smith—History 1:34–65, consider what details in these verses might stand out to you if you had never heard of the Book of Mormon before. As a believer, why is this account important to your testimony of the Book of Mormon?
  • Moroni quoted to Joseph several Old and New Testament prophecies, such as Isaiah 11Acts 3:22–23; and Joel 2:28–32. Why might these prophecies have been important for Joseph to know?
    • Why are they important for you to know?
  • What do words like “plant,” “hearts,” and “turn” in this section teach you about the mission of Elijah and the blessings of the priesthood keys he restored?
    • How have you felt your heart turn toward your ancestors?
    • Think of ways you can experience such feelings more often.
    • Perhaps you could ask a relative to share a story with you about one of your ancestors—even better, you could record it. Maybe you could identify a deceased ancestor who never received gospel ordinances and then perform that work in the temple.
  • How did Joseph Smith feel about his mistakes?
      • What did he do in response to those feelings?
      • What do we learn from him about what to do when we make mistakes?
  • You could ask a family member to read aloud part or all of Moroni’s message from Joseph Smith—History 1:33–42 four times (because Moroni repeated this message four times). Between each reading, ask the other family members to share what they remember from his message, without looking at the scriptures.
    • Why might the Lord repeat important messages several times?
    • What are some other ways the Lord teaches us through repetition?
    • Identify the promises God made as part of His covenant with Abraham. How do we “plant” these promises in our hearts?
  • To help family members turn their hearts to their fathers (or ancestors), you could invite them to learn about an ancestor and to share what they learn with the rest of the family.
    • Why does the Lord want us to learn about our family members and perform temple ordinances for them?
    • How are we blessed when we participate in family history and temple work? (see Dale G. Renlund, “Family History and Temple Work: Sealing and Healing,” Ensign or Liahona, May 2018, 46–49).

Lesson:

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.

I’m reminded of a time when I was listening to the Saint’s Radio program, “All Things Creative.” Again this was an instance where I just happened to turn on the radio, and it just happened to be an episode about LDS Bloggers. Which seems like a 1 in 1,000,000,000 types of chance when you consider the type of material that radio program puts out. The light streamed through my daughter’s window, and I knew that I needed to make THIS. On Lemon Lane. It had always been something I had wanted to do but was never ready to pull the trigger, but something spoke to my soul that there was room for this space and that I could create something helpful, and maybe even meaningful to others. This is my sacrifice, this is my widow’s mite, this is the sharing of my talents to build up the Kingdom of God.

If you remember, the Parable of the Missing Bath Bomb, click here to read the sweet story, I’m learning that if it’s important to you, It’s important to God, and if you are willing to put in the work, through His grace, we can be enabled.

and well, it happened again. Yesterday, I was working on Teaching on Lemon Lane into the early hours of the next day like I often do. I had a show about Vikings playing in the background… my ancestors…😬😅 I got sidetracked thinking I should find out if any of the well-known vikings were in my family line, cue family search, cue rabbit hole, cue I think I indexed for the first time in my life and it was fast and easy! My heart swelled as I looked through the different famous relatives on my tree. (Check out how to find yours in LESS than 30 seconds using the Family Search Activity I’ve linked below!)

Fast forward to today. I start reading through this week’s Come Follow Me, a little anxious as I go in blind not sure what this week will be about, let alone what I will write about. Then, an almost smirk overtakes my face as I read Doctrine and Covenants 2.

Behold, I will reveal unto you the Priesthood, by the hand of aElijah the prophet, before the coming of the great and bdreadful day of the Lord.

And ahe shall plant in the hearts of the children the bpromises made to the fathers, and the hearts of the children shall turn to their fathers.

If it were not so, the whole aearth would be utterly wasted at his coming.

Elijah.

Family History.

Coincidence… or tender mercy.

The hand of God is in our lives. He is in mine. When I take the time to work. When I am willing to sacrifice. When I am intentional. He is there. He is in the details.

ALSO,

I’m so excited to share with you one of my absolute FAVORITE resources on the Prophet Joseph Smith. The Saints Channel, formerly Mormon Channel, put together a program called, “Perspectives.” Essentially it is a collection of episodes featuring different quotes, journal entries, quotes, and experiences related to the prophet Joseph Smith. I hope you take the time to listen to ALL of them WITH your family or your students, but today I will take the time to link two of my favorites. Perspectives on the Prophet Joseph Smith by Gordon B. Hinkley, and Emma Smith.

Next week I will share Elder Holland’s…

Teaching Ideas for Toddlers & Young Children

Watch or Listen To:

With young children, 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.  Many of these are PERFECT for when everyone is strapped in the car seat. My 5-year-old now requests many of these over the radio. 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 Come Follow Me:

  • Possible Activities

    • Help the children say the name “Elijah” a few times. Ask them to listen for this name as you read Doctrine and Covenants 2:1. Explain that these are Moroni’s words to Joseph Smith, and they teach that Elijah would come to restore priesthood authority. Elijah later did appear to Joseph in the Kirtland Temple and gave the Prophet the power to seal families together.

    • Ask the children to tell you something they love about their families. Display a picture of a family next to a temple—your own family, if possible (or see Gospel Art Book, no. 120). Testify that Heavenly Father wants families to be together forever, and this is one reason He gave us temples.

Teaching Ideas for Families

Watch or Listen To:

The church recently released, “Saints,” A New Narrative approach to church history. It. Is. WONDERFUL. This gives such depth and understanding to the early saints. Historians did a remarkable job marrying facts, conversations, and primary sources with the art of storytelling. Every conversation read, or detail noted, comes from a primary account. Saints is also intended to be read and comprehended at an 8th-grade reading level making it accessible to nearly every Latter-Day Saint. Please add this to your study this year!

Click Here to Listen to or Read Chapter 1 of the “Saints,” (**To listen, click on the headphone icon in the bottom right-hand corner)

 

 

Read:

 

  • You HAVE to start reading or listening to SAINTS:  (“Saints” was recently released by the church it is a narrative approach, (all primary-sourced insights) to  Church  History)  It is intentionally written in a way the entire family can enjoy and benefit from!

 

  • Another GREAT Resource is Revelations in Context: This is another book released by the church,  its purpose is to give you the behind the scene details to the  Section of the revelation given.  What prompted the question, what was going on…etc.
  • “The Doctrine and Covenants is a book of answers to prayers: many of the sacred revelations in this book came in response to questions. So it’s appropriate to begin studying the Doctrine and Covenants by considering the question that began the latter-day outpouring of revelation.” This book will help provide that background…

  1. Thank you for your hard work on Come Follow Me! I always check here each week for help in teaching my family. I have teenagers and they are hard, but you always have great ideas and questions to keep them engaged.

    • Kerry, these types of comments make all the work worth it! Thank you so much for taking the type to comment. I can’t imagine teaching teenagers, my littles are still so little. I’ll make sure to keep your teenagers in mind as I gather content!

Achieving true ward or branch unity may be as difficult as it is rare. But great progress can be made in each ward and branch of the Church as leaders and members apply the following principles: (1) learn the doctrine, (2) eliminate contention, (3) forgive others, (4) watch over and strengthen each other, and (5) sacrifice for the kingdom of God. […] Our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, are one, even as we must become one. Let us, therefore, be fully committed as disciples of the Lord to become united as a church and as a people.

-Be Ye One: By Elder H. Aldridge Gillespie
...

Loved these thoughts from the Strength of Youth magazine:
.
“There’s a style of painting called pointillism where artists apply small colored dots all over a surface to create an image instead of mixing colors together on a palette and using large brush strokes. When you stand close to these paintings, all you can see are individual dots of color.
However, when you take a step back, the dots blend together to reveal a picture.
The individual colored dots all work together to create something beautiful. Just like the dots, we are all unique individuals. Heavenly Father sees the “full picture.” He sees us all as His sons and daughters, “heirs to the kingdom of God” (4 Nephi 1:17). If we can also learn how to step back and see the bigger picture, we can learn how to love and work with people who are different from us. Here are some things we can do to work at being unified.
...
As you work to build unity with others, you might see we’re not as different from each other as we think. As we learn to see each other as Heavenly Father sees us, we will come to understand that everyone is needed and belongs in the kingdom of God. We are each a wonderful dot of color in a beautiful mural. And let’s face it, it just wouldn’t be the same without you.”
...

Not sure about you, but while reading through the suggested activities to try with your class or family in Come Follow Me, the activities dealing with the idea of being one… felt EXTREMELY relevant to my little family, and my little children, and their little rivalries. I thought I would make a quick printable to go along with this suggested activity:
.
“To teach children what it means to “be one,” you could help them count the members of your family and talk about why each person is important to your family. Emphasize that together you are one family. You could help your children draw a large 1 on a poster and decorate it with names and drawings or pictures of each family member. You could also write on the poster things you will do to be more united as a family. You might also watch the video “Love in Our Hearts” (ChurchofJesusChrist.org) or read Moses 7:18.”

“I opened it with eagerness, and read its title page. I then read the testimony of several witnesses in relation to the manner of its being found and translated. After this I commenced its contents by course. I read all day; eating was a burden, I had no desire for food; sleep was a burden when the night came, for I preferred reading to sleep. “As I read, the spirit of the Lord was upon me, and I knew and comprehended that the book was true, as plainly and manifestly as a man comprehends and knows that he exists” (Autobiography of Parley Parker Pratt, ed. Parley P. Pratt Jr. [1938], 37). ...

On Easter Sunday we celebrate the most long-awaited and glorious event in the history of the world.

It is the day that changed everything.

On that day, my life changed.

Your life changed.

The destiny of all God’s children changed.

On that blessed day, the Savior of mankind, who had taken upon Himself the chains of sin and death that held us captive, burst those chains and set us free.

Because of the sacrifice of our beloved Redeemer, death has no sting, the grave has no victory,1 Satan has no lasting power, and we are “begotten … again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
...

LOVED the @followhimpodcast this week with guest @brotheranthonysweat their discussion on spiritual and temporal matters was something everyone should listen to! @johngbytheway also recited this quote, and I knew I wanted to share it with all of you....💛
.
“Just as a man does not really desire food until he is hungry, so he does not desire the salvation of Christ until he knows why he needs Christ.

No one adequately and properly knows why he needs Christ until he understands and accepts the doctrine of the Fall and its effect upon all mankind. And no other book in the world explains this vital doctrine nearly as well as the Book of Mormon.”

Ezra Taft Benson

If you are like me and ready to “repent” or my favorite repentance synonym... to “turn around” and become more commited to scripture study and family prayer each morning, I’ve created the following printable to help stay on track. This printable works as a visual reminder as well a place to keep track of your progress. Color in a letter each day and see if you can keep up the habit for 34days!

I also want to note that our “scipture study” may not look like your traditional scripture study… and that’s ok! The Lord LOVES effort. So no… At the moment we are not sitting down and opening our scriptures for a formal study, we aren’t even reading a children’s version of the scriptures. Instead, thanks to my husband, we are simply working on memorizing a SINGLE VERSE of scripture each morning. We will use that same verse of scripture until my kiddos have it mastered. This feels doable. This feels obtainable. This is currently working for us. I’m hoping we can do a single verse each week, a verse that can be found in the assigned Come Follow Me reading!
What are you doing in your family that is working? Please share below! To track your progress, Head to the website to download this FREEBIE!

“I like to think of this spiritual armor not as a solid piece of metal molded to fit the body, but more like chain mail. Chain mail consists of dozens of tiny pieces of steel fastened together to allow the user greater flexibility without losing protection. I say that because it has been my experience, covering many more years than you have yet been privileged to live, that there is not one great and grand thing we can do to arm ourselves spiritually. True spiritual power lies in numerous smaller acts woven together in a fabric of spiritual fortification that protects and shields from all evil.”
-Elder M. Russel Ballard
...

We LOVED following along and learning to draw the Armor of God for this week’s #comefollowme @davidbowmanart Drawn In Subscription is the only paid resource I use for Come Follow Me at this time💛 my kids love the videos and each week I’m blown away by David’s creativity and focus on the principles of the scriptures and how they apply instead of just the story. (Plus it doesn’t get much easier than pushing play on a Sunday) 🙈😬🥴
.
My kiddos and I especially loved the insight about putting on the armor of God in the morning... I’m paraphrasing:
.
“Does a warrior put on his armor before he goes to bed? No it’s the first thing he does before going to battle.”
.
Like a warrior we need our spiritual armor at the start of the day!
.
“Scripture Study and Pray to start the day!”
.
So here’s to tomorrow and creating the habit of starting the day off clothed in spiritual armor... wish us luck!

Emma Smith. Call me a cynic, but if you put value on the fact that none of the witnesses ever recounted their testimony of the Book of Mormon, I put 10 fold that value on Emma.
.
My heart swells and breaks a little when I think of dear Emma. She is someone that I can not wait to meet, to hug, and to cry with. She endured SO much, and loved Joseph with a depth that seems unobtainable.
.
I know we need to be careful putting early Saints on a pedestal, but that’s just it, much of the pedestal I place her on is grounded in how “human” she is to me.
.
Emma often doesn’t get the credit she is due based on other’s quick assumptions. I used to be one of them.... What I do know is that the more I learn about Emma, the more I love and look up to her. If ever there was a model of strength, courage and endurance, it would be her.
.
What do you think? Comment below 💛
.
This beautiful depiction of Emma and Joseph is by the incredibly talented @rosedatocdall I dare say it’s my favorite to date. 💛💛💛
...

“I have never seen a woman in my life, who would endure every species of fatigue and hardship, from month to month, and from year to year, with that unflinching courage, zeal and patience, which she has always done; for I know that which she has had to endure; that she has been tossed upon the ocean of uncertainty; that she has breasted the storm of persecution, and buffeted the rage of men and devils, until she has been swallowed up in a sea of trouble which [would] have borne down almost any other woman.”3

-Lucy Mack Smith

Had to share this caption from one of my new FAVORITE accounts to follow while studying Doctrine and Covenants for #comefollowme @saintsofhistory takes an early saint and posts a brief but extremely entertaining biography about each individual. I’ve been waiting not so patiently for the post dedicated to Emma! Read an excerpt of @saintsofhistory post below. Also check out this early artwork by @emilyshayart another one of my favorite artists/ illustrators 😭😍
.
In 1825, 21-year-old Emma met 19-year-old Joseph Smith when a guy named Josiah Stowell hired Joseph to help him dig for purported lost silver near Harmony, PA. The Smiths often took random jobs like this to help provide for the family, but Joseph’s current living + all the rumors about him still didn’t impress Emma’s dad. But she was done being with all the single ladies, so she put her hand up and Joseph liked it so he put a ring on it—they eloped and were married on Jan. 18, 1827 in South Bainbridge, NY.
Fast forward to June 15, 1828: At the same time Martin Harris was losing 116 pages of The Book of Mormon, Emma nearly died. After an agonizing labor, she gave birth to her first child, but the baby was very frail and died soon afterward. Little did she know that her first three children would not live beyond a day, and of the nine children she bore, only four would grow to adulthood. Emma and Joseph named this first baby Alvin.
Now let’s jump to July 1830: Soon after Emma’s “memorable” baptism day (see Joseph Knight Sr. post), the Lord sent a revelation just for her, now known as Doctrine & Covenants 25. (Go read p.36-38 in “Revelations in Context”—good stuff.) Among other things, Emma is assigned to “make a selection of sacred hymns.” Today, 26 of Emma’s original selections are still in our hymn book. Zero came from Beyonce.
Of course, Emma later became the first president of the Relief Society, fulfilling, at least in part, her designation by the Lord as an “elect lady” according to Joseph in 1842.
Emma was a leader in public and in private—often left to face life’s challenges alone when her husband was falsely accused and imprisoned.

Selection Sunday and PI Day falling on the same day... Somebody pinch me. Two of my very favorites because of the projects you can start in your classroom 😍 Take for instance my March Math Madness PBL
.
Think March Madness + Fantasy Basketball + Lots of Math + A sprinkle of ELA = Engagement & Excitement & Learning 💛🏀💛
Students are separated into the 4 divisions then work together to put together a new starting 5 from players in their division. #dreamteam Each round their individual players are awards point values for how they played. At the end of each round students will calculate their team’s total points and decide which dream team comes out victorious! There are some really great opportunities to see Math in action. There’s opportunity for measurement conversion, converting fractions to decimals, ordering decimals, ratios, mean-median-mode, adding and subtracting decimals, multiplying decimals...etc. This is quickly becoming another tried and true favorite in the classroom!
.
Also if you think your too late to the table, the only thing you are late for is brackets! The dream team activity can be started before any round! Second round would actually be ideal 👊🏻👊🏻 LOTS of FREEBIE extensions for this product that can stand on their own! Head to the website for more details!
