Family Home Evening for Come Follow Me 6/14 for Kids

Song

Repentance (Children’s #98)

Scripture

Doctrine and Covenants 66:3

Lesson

  • Try serving tonight’s treat to the kids on plates that are covered in dirt, dried food, etc. Make them very obviously dirty and disgusting.
  • When the kids reject the plates, wash them and re-serve the treat. (Don’t use a new clean plate – it will mess up the object lesson!)
  • While eating your treat on the newly-cleaned plates, read the scripture. Focus on the Lord’s words to William McLellin: “You are clean, but not all.” What does this mean?
  • Our spirits are like this – even if we’re good people and make some good choices, any sin is like a dirty plate.
  • Repentance is what gets the plates clean. Just like a plate needs to be washed every time it gets dirty (as opposed to once a week), we need to repent every time we mess up. And like the plate gets clean every time, we can be forgiven every time.

Activity

Let the kids wash the dishes by hand again after having the treat. Add some Dawn dish soap to make the water very bubbly and fun.

Treat

Your children’s favorite dessert/treat. If they don’t have one, ice cream works great.

Monday Devotional

Song

Help Me, Dear Father (Children’s #99)

Scripture

Doctrine and Covenants 64:1–11

Discussion

  • In August 1831, several elders were traveling back to Kirtland after surveying the land of Zion in Missouri as directed by the Lord. It was not a pleasant journey. The travelers—Joseph Smith, Oliver Cowdery, Sidney Rigdon, Ezra Booth, and others—were hot and weary, and tensions soon turned into quarrels. It may have seemed like building Zion, a city of love, unity, and peace, was going to take a long time.
  • What does the Lord say in these verses about repentance and forgiveness?
  • Why do you think the Lord commands us “to forgive all”?
  • Can you think of a time that you have had to ask someone for forgiveness? What about a time that someone has asked you for forgiveness?
  • What should we do when someone hurts us but doesn’t ask for forgiveness at all?

If with All Your Hearts (Children’s #15)

Joseph didn’t know it, but William had five personal questions he was hoping the Lord would answer through His Prophet. We don’t know what William’s questions were, but we do know that the revelation addressed to him, now Doctrine and Covenants 66, answered each question to William’s “full and entire satisfaction”
  • What did the Lord know about William McLellin and the concerns and intents of his heart.  Do you think He knows the same things about you?
