Family Home Evening for Come Follow Me 2/26 for Kids
Learn this new song “Isaiah Says” from the October 2012 Friend magazine.
- Engraving on metal plates is not easy, and space on Nephi’s small plates was limited. So why would Nephi make the effort of copying so many of the writings of the prophet Isaiah into his record?
- He did it because he wanted us to believe in Jesus Christ.
- Nephi had seen what would happen to his people in future generations, and he knew the words of Isaiah would help us.
- Isaiah’s words can be hard to understand for us because we don’t know the people or places he talks about. But there are three things we can do to understand better:
- “Liken” Isaiah’s words to us.
- Look for symbols of Jesus.
- Be filled with the “spirit of prophecy,” which is the Holy Ghost.
- We will talk more about these this week and use them to help understand Isaiah’s words.

I Love to See the Temple (Children’s #95)
- The mountain is a symbol for the temple.
- Why do you think Heavenly Father used that as a symbol? – Moses and Nephi both went into mountains to communicate with God.
- If you have been to the temple, you could talk about your own experiences.
- Why do we need temples?
- What does the Lord want you to learn and experience in His holy house?
- How can the temple help you walk in the Lord’s paths?
How can I prepare to go to the temple?
The Iron Rod (Hymns #274)
- One of the most important things we can do when we read and study the scriptures is to ‘liken’ them to ourselves.
- This means that we think about how what is being taught in the scriptures can be used in our own lives.
- Even the stories in the scriptures can teach us lessons.
- The Holy Ghost will help you think of these things as you study if you are listening for them.
- What is one scripture story that you can ‘liken’ or compare with something you are struggling with in your life?
What is a situation in my life that I can use the scriptures for?
“Try Likening” in these situations.
Lead, Kindly Light (Hymns #97)
- Pride is a very serious sin and eventually led to the downfall of a very righteous and blessed people.
- Pride is putting yourself above God and other people. It also means putting someone else’s view above God’s.
- What are the consequences of pride that Isaiah foresaw in the our days?
- Have you seen pride in yourself? In what ways can you be more humble?
- If applicable, discuss how humility does NOT mean letting others put us down. And confidence in oneself is NOT pride.
How can I show humility in my family this week?
When He Comes Again (Children’s #82) verse 2
- Isaiah uses lots of names to refer to Jesus in the scriptures.
- The names have special meanings. “Christ” means “the anointed,” and “Immanuel” means “God with us.”
- What do these names teach us about Jesus?
- The Jews knew about Isaiah’s prophecies of Christ for hundreds of years before He was born. How would you have felt to meet Him back then?
- How will you feel when you see Jesus again?
How can I prepare to see Jesus again?
High on the Mountain Top (Hymns #5)
- Wrap something bitter/sour in a candy wrapper and offer it to the kids.
- How does Satan try ot make things that are evil look good?
- Why does Satan try to disguise sin?
- How does Jesus help us avoid being tricked by Satan? An “ensign” is a messenger.
- Even though the Savior is angry when the world is wicked, He gives us a messenger to call us to repentance and righteousness.
- Watch “You Will Be Freed”
How can I not be fooled by Satan?
