Family Home Evening for Come Follow Me 4/22 for Kids
Seek the Lord Early (Children’s #108)
- The last of Jacob’s descendents to have the plates didn’t have a son. He knew King Benjamin, the Nephite king at the time, was righteous, so he passed the plates on to him.
- How did the sacred records bless King Benjamin’s people? How is your life better because you have the scriptures?
- A few weeks ago, we had General Conference. What did we do to prepare for General Conference?
- This was like the Nephite’s General Conference – what did King Mosiah ask them to do to prepare?
- Listening to church leaders is like listening to Heavenly Father Himself. What else do we do to hear God’s word? (Church, scriptures, prayer, etc.)
- What should we do to prepare ourselves to hear His word?
Create the setting for King Benjamin’s speech. Make a small tower and let family members take turns reading King Benjamin’s words while standing on it. The rest of the family can listen from inside a makeshift tent.
Make s’mores like you would if you were camping.

When I Am Baptized (Children’s #103)
- An angel told King Benjamin important truths about the life and ministry of Jesus Christ.

The First Article of Faith (Children’s #122a)
- This verse tells us that Jesus is the “father of heaven and earth.” Is Jesus the same person as Heavenly Father?
- Jesus created the whole world. In that way, He is like a father to the world.
- Jesus died for our sins and we take His name on us when we’re baptized, just like a last name tells us what family we belong to. In that way, He’s a bit like an adopted father.
- Heavenly Father is the Father of our spirits, and Jesus is one of His children, just like we are.
Draw a picture of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
