Family Home Evening for Come Follow Me 1/11 for Kids

Song

13. An Angel from on High

Scripture

Joseph Smith—History 1:33–42

Lesson

  • Read the scripture through four times. Moroni repeated this message four times when he presented it to Joseph Smith.
  • Now have each person repeat as many things as they can without looking back at the scripture.
  • Why do you think Moroni presented the same message 4 times?
  • What are some other ways the Lord teaches us through repetition?

Play the telephone game.

Try it again, but repeat the message more than once. Does this help?

Devotionals for Come Follow Me 1/11 for kids

Remember that these are guidelines for you to use in your daily Come, Follow Me / devotionals with your children!  Please don’t feel as though you have to use every single question, journal entry, or activity.  Just 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 for Come Follow Me 1/11:

  • Start by singing the song together and saying a prayer
  • Read the scripture together, then your family can have a discussion 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, after which the child can write or draw an answer.
  • Have fun together doing the activity as a family!

Modifications for older children for Come, Follow Me 1/11 daily devotionals:

  • 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 for Come Follow Me 1/11
  • Instead of answering the journal entry with a drawing, you can 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.
