For the hour is nigh, and that which was spoken by mine apostles must be fulfilled, for as they spoke so shall it come to pass;

Devotionals for Come Follow Me 3/22 for kids

Remember that these are guidelines for you to use in your daily Come, Follow Me 3/22 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 3/22:

  • 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 3/22 daily devotionals:

  • Explore the footnotes for each of the scriptures listed in Come, Follow Me 3/22
  • Ask additional discussion questions found in the Personal Study section of Come, Follow Me – For Individuals and Families for Come Follow Me 3/22

The Day Dawn Is Breaking (Hymns #52)

Scripture

Doctrine and Covenants 29:14-21

Discussion

  • No one knows when the Second Coming will be. But before the Second Coming, there will be signs that it is getting closer.
  • The Lord told Joseph Smith what a lot of those signs will be. What did we read about?
  • How do you feel about these signs? They seem a little scary, don’t they? Let’s read what the apostle Elder Ballard said about these signs: “My message to you, my young friends, is simply this: The Lord is in control. He knows the end from the beginning. He has given us adequate instruction that, if followed, will see us safely through any crisis. His purposes will be fulfilled, and someday we will understand the eternal reasons for all of these events.”
  • We have a living prophet who will help guide us through these hard times. If we trust him and follow his counsel, we will be okay.

I Lived in Heaven (Children’s #4)

Scripture

Doctrine and Covenants 29:36–50

Discussion

  • Who knows the story of Adam and Eve? When Eve ate the fruit, this was called The Fall.

  • We are redeemed (saved) from The Fall and our wrong choices because Jesus paid the punishment for our sins and died for us.
