Here are the devotionals and FHE for the week of 1/20/2020.

Last week’s devotionals

Family Home Evening

Song

Come, Follow Me

Scripture

1 Nephi 13:20–42

Lesson

    • Create a simple statement of truth found in the Book of Mormon. Cut it up and jumble the words and have family members attempt to understand what it is trying to say.
    • Discuss some of the plain and precious truths that were lost in the Bible and why it is so important that we have them restored through the Book of Mormon.
    • You may also bear testimony of how some of the simple, but important things taught in the Book of Mormon have blessed your life.

Activity

Play the game “telephone” where family members whisper a secret in another’s ear and it goes around the room in a circle.  Compare the original message with the one the final family member heard to demonstrate how easy it is to misunderstand.

Treat

Pop-tart puzzles

Scripture of the Week

Work on memorizing this scripture during the week:  Moses 1:39

For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.

Devotionals

Remember that these are guidelines for you to use!  Don’t feel as though you have to use every single question, journal entry, or activity.  Make sure you look at the activity in advance so you can gather any materials they may require.

Here is a general outline for each devotional:

  • Start by singing the song together and saying a prayer
  • Read the scripture together, and then have a discussion about it using the questions/comments provided
  • Copy the journal entries into a spiral notebook.  The child or the parent can write the question at the top, then the child can write or draw an answer.
  • Have fun together with the activity!

Modifications for older children:

  • Explore the footnotes for each of the scriptures listed
  • Ask additional discussion questions found in the Personal Study section of Come, Follow Me – For Individuals and Families
  • Instead of printing the journal entry and answering it with a drawing, create a study journal (a simple spiral notebook will work) to answer the question with a few sentences or paragraphs, depending on the child’s age.

Monday

Song

God Is Love

Scripture

1 Nephi 11:21

Discussion

    • The tree of life in Nephi’s and Lehi’s visions represents the love of God.
    • What does that mean?
    • See also John 3:16.
    • What other verses in chapter 11 helped you learn more about what God did for us out of love?

Activity

Tuesday

The Spirit of God

Scripture

1 Nephi 13:41–42

Discussion

    • Nephi saw our day in his vision, including the restoration of the gospel.
    • Why do you think he was given that vision?
    • How could it have helped him?
    • How does it help you to know that Nephi saw what was going to happen long after he died?

Activity

Wednesday

Song

Israel, Israel, God Is Calling

Scripture

1 Nephi 14:9–11

Discussion

    • In these chapters a ‘great and abominable’ church is mentioned a lot.
    • Elder Dallin H. Oaks explained that this church represents “any philosophy or organization that opposes belief in God. And the ‘captivity’ into which this ‘church’ seeks to bring the saints will not be so much physical confinement as the captivity of false ideas” 
    • False ideas about God and His plan are everywhere and can ‘capture’ us.
    • That is one reason we have prophets in addition to personal revelation. They help us know the truth and follow it.

Activity

Thursday

Song

Oh Say, What Is Truth?

Scripture

1 Nephi 13:23, 28

Discussion

    • We know that the bible contains many wonderful truths and the gospel of Jesus Christ.
    • There are some precious truths that have been lost through translation and alteration of the bible, however.
    • The Book of Mormon restores some of those lost truths.
    • What are some of these?
    • How is it important to you to know those things?

    • What do we need to do in addition to asking?
    • Did you receive the revelation after trying those additional steps?

What can I pray for this week?

Sunday

Use Sundays for a time of reflection; share what you discussed that day in each of your classes.  Did you learn anything new or hear a different perspective about what you studied this week?

If you went to a class that did not use the Come, Follow Me Manual, then share what stood out to you the most in your class.

Take a few minutes to talk about what parts of Sacrament Meeting you felt like were meant for you.

Here are some activities that go along with this week’s topic:

    • Match these prophets to their teachings
    • Show Joseph Smith Translation to the children and look up some of the Bible verses and compare them to what Joseph Smith translated.  Discuss how it changes the meaning of the scriptures.
    • Follow President Hinckley’s counsel to write down a scripture verse to look at every morning
    • Look at the ideas for scripture reading and talk about which ones you can do together as a family during the week to make scriptures more fun
    • Cut out these scripture cards and look for more verses to put on them

Primary Assignment:

The Come, Follow Me – For Primary manual contains a section in each week’s lesson entitled “Encourage Learning at Home.”  Here is this week’s invitation:

Encourage the children to show their families the “iron rods” they made from the activity page and share how they can hold to the iron rod by reading the scriptures.
