Week 26 COME FOLLOW ME: Doctrine and Covenants – TEACHING IDEAS & RESOURCES | D&C Sections 67 – 70

Questions to Ponder:

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. Each Come Follow Me Lesson asks important and reflective questions.

  • What do you learn about prophets and revelation from verses 1–9? What additional insights do you gain from 68:3–6?
  • How might the declaration in verse 4 help someone who is being sent to preach the gospel?
    • How do these words apply to you?
    • Think of a time when you were “moved upon by the Holy Ghost” (verse 3) to say or do something.
    • What do you find in these verses that can give you confidence to follow spiritual promptings?
  • According to Doctrine and Covenants 68:25–28, what are some of the “basic gospel doctrines” that President Jones mentioned that parents should teach their children?
    • Why is this important responsibility given to parents?
    • What would you say to a parent who doesn’t feel qualified to teach these things to his or her children?
  • How do jealousy, fear, and pride keep us from growing closer to the Lord?
    • Why can’t a “natural man” be in the Lord’s presence? (verse 12; see also Mosiah 3:19).
    • What do we find in these verses that inspires us to “continue in patience until [we] are perfected”? (verse 13).
  • These verses contain important counsel to “the inhabitants of Zion” (verse 26). What are we inspired to improve on after reading these verses? It might be fun to create pictures depicting some of the principles in these verses and hide them throughout your home. Then, in the coming days when someone finds a picture, you could use that as an opportunity to teach about that principle.
    • Why is the home the best place for children to learn these things?
  • What counsel did the Lord give in verse 1 about Oliver’s journey?
    • Why is it important to be with people “who will be true and faithful”? (verse 1).
    • When have friends influenced us to make good or bad decisions?
    • How can we be a good influence on others?
  • In what sense could we be considered “stewards over the revelations and commandments”?


I loved the idea of using this week to talk about and teach the importance of baptism. I found this fun idea from Sheena at Little LDS Ideas and thought it went along perfectly with this suggestion from Come Follow Me, this week.

  • These verses contain important counsel to “the inhabitants of Zion” (verse 26). What are we inspired to improve on after reading these verses? It might be fun to create pictures depicting some of the principles in these verses and hide them throughout your home. Then, in the coming days when someone finds a picture, you could use that as an opportunity to teach about that principle.

Instead of hiding the principles around the house you could make a fun punch a cup game and take turns discussing and reviewing. You could do them all in one class time, or throughout the week with your family!

***Instructions, printables, and questions to include in the punch a cup game is included in the blog post! 

Sheena’s activity is mainly for kiddos preparing for baptism, however you could easily tweak this idea for you own study by adding pictures of the principles taught in section 68!

If you do this activity, PLEASE take pictures and share them, or comment below to let me know how it went! I LOVE hearing from you.

“Besides, if the choice is between reforming other Church members or ourselves, is there really any question about where we should begin? The key is to have our eyes wide open to our own faults and partially closed to the faults of others—not the other way around! The imperfections of others never release us from the need to work on our own shortcomings”

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.  You can even head to their website to download discussion questions to go along with the video and a fun coloring page.

Activity Suggestion from Church Magazines:

  • Baptism Reminders

    For Doctrine and Covenants 67–70

    • Sing “When I Am Baptized” (Children’s Songbook, 103).

    • Jesus taught that children can be baptized after they have turned eight years old (see Doctrine and Covenants 68:27). You can read a story on page 16 about a girl being baptized.

    • Find items around your home that remind you of baptism. A cup of water could remind you of how we are baptized by immersion. A piece of white cloth could remind you of how we wear white. A blanket could remind you of the warm feeling of the Holy Ghost. What else can you think of?

  • For Doctrine and Covenants 67–70: Find pictures of the prophet on the Church’s website or in the Church magazines. Help your little ones say, “The prophet teaches God’s word.”

Activity Suggestions From Come Follow Me:

  • Tell the children that when the Lord sent Oliver Cowdery to Missouri, He said that someone “true and faithful” (verse 1) should go with him, so He also sent John Whitmer. What does it mean to be true and faithful? How can we make sure we are true and faithful so that the Lord can use us to bless others?

    • Invite a few children to tell about someone they know who they think is “true and faithful.” How do they know that person is true and faithful? Help them see that the Lord trusted John Whitmer because he was, at this time, true and faithful (see Doctrine and Covenants 69:1–2). Sing together a song that encourages the children to be true and faithful like the Savior, such as “I’m Trying to Be like Jesus” (Children’

  • Invite the children to count to eight using their fingers. What is special about being eight years old? Help the children recognize that when they are eight years old, they can be baptized. Using words and phrases found in Doctrine and Covenants 68:25–28, share with them some of the things the Lord wants them to learn about before they are eight (see also Articles of Faith 1:4). Help them understand concepts that might not be familiar to them.


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!

…I am SO EXCITED to share the following videos with you! In a nutshell, they are a short introduction and overview of the sections of the Doctrine and Covenants. You get a brief, historically accurate backstory to the section, as well as a quick look at what it contains. In other words, this is the PERFECT support to add to your family’s study!

These videos are put together by Doctrine and Covenants Central, like Book of Mormon Central. Their vision is to “build enduring faith in Jesus Christ by making the Doctrine and Covenants accessible, comprehensible, and defensible to people everywhere.” 

I remember first hearing about their vision during a Fair Mormon Conference a few years ago when this vision was still just a vision, tears filled my eyes and my heart swelled at the thought of how needed and necessary their vision and efforts are, especially today. I wish I could put into words how grateful I am to those that share their talents so freely. If you really want to dive in deep to each section, consider visiting their website and looking up the section you would like to study, or downloading their FREE Scripture Study App, (Scripture Plus)
