Family Home Evening for Come Follow Me 10/28 for Kids
More Holiness Give Me (Hymns #131)
- This week we will learn about Mormon.
- He was a prophet, and he led the Nephite armies.
- Because of the wickedness, the Nephites were being destroyed by the Lamanites. Mormon led them, but they were losing because the Lord didn’t help them.
- When Mormon saw his people’s sorrow, he hoped they would repent. But “their sorrowing was not unto repentance.”
- There are two types of sorrow when we commit sin: worldly sorrow and godly sorrow.
- Make a chart with Godly Sorrow on one side and Worldly Sorrow on the other side. Write the characteristics of each type on the corresponding side. (This chart may give you some ideas)
Make a Shield of Faith. Cut it out and glue to cardboard (like a cereal box).
