Family Home Evening for Come Follow Me 5/27 for Kids


The Wise Man and the Foolish Man (Children’s #281)


Mosiah 25:24


  • After nearly three generations of living in separate lands, the Nephites were one people again. Limhi’s people, Alma’s people, and Mosiah’s people—even the people of Zarahemla, who were not descended from Nephi—were now all “numbered with the Nephites”
  • But before long, unbelievers began persecuting the Saints. What made this especially heartbreaking was that many of these unbelievers were the believers’ own children—the “rising generation” including the sons of Mosiah and one son of Alma.
  • What kinds of choices were they making? This week, we’ll talk about those choices.
  • Making a choice is like picking up a stick. When you pick up one end of a stick, the other end always comes with it. When you make a choice, a consequence always comes with it.
  • What were the consequences of Alma the Younger’s choices? (An angel came and told him he would be cast off if he didn’t repent.)
  • Some consequences come quickly after you make a choice. Sometimes you may not recognize a consequence until long after you make the choice. But eventually there is always a consequence.

Monday Devotional


Search, Ponder, and Pray (Children’s #109)


Mosiah 26:1–6


  • Even though the parents who heard King Benjamin speak told their children about the gospel, their children refused to believe.
  • What are some of the possible reasons “the rising generation” fell away?
  • We are responsible for our own testimonies.  No one can give our testimony to us.
  • We can share our testimony with others to help theirs grow, but they choose whether or not they listen.

Tuesday Devotional


Fathers (Children’s #209) verse 2


Mosiah 26:6–39


  • When people make wrong choices, a church leader like a bishop is there to help.
  • The people went to Alma about the wrong choices of others.  Alma didn’t know what to do – it had never happened before.  What did Alma do?
  • Some of the Lord’s answers were not in direct response to Alma’s question. What does this suggest about prayer and receiving personal revelation?
  • What does Alma’s experience suggest about how you might approach difficult problems in your family or your Church service?
  • Our own church leaders don’t always know what to do, and they aren’t perfect, but they can go to Heavenly Father in prayer to know how to help us.

Wednesday Devotional


Help Me, Dear Father (Children’s #99) both verses


Mosiah 26:30–31


  • Sometimes others mess up. Sometimes we mess up. Some people may wonder if God really does forgive them. How do you imagine Alma the Elder would counsel a member of the Church in Zarahemla who had that concern?
  • How many times the word “forgive” appear in these verses? What do these verses teach about forgiving others?
  • Read Luke 23:33–34. What did Jesus ask Heavenly Father to do for the people who put Him on the cross?
  • Sometimes it is difficult to forgive ourselves when we make mistakes. How can God’s words to Alma help?

  • Help the children role-play forgiving one another.

  • Alma the Younger spot-the-difference
  • Read together Mosiah 27:8–24, and ask the children to identify what Alma and his people did to help Alma the Younger. Share an experience in which you fasted and prayed for someone, and encourage the children to share their own experiences.
