Family Home Evening for Come Follow Me 6/24 for Kids
The Priesthood Is Restored (Children’s #89)
- Alma and Amulek teach the people a lot about the priesthood. We’ll talk about it more in Monday’s devotionals.
- This verse, however, teaches about foreordination. This is different than predestination. Let’s talk about the differences.
- When you get a priesthood blessing, it says certain things MIGHT happen IF you are faithful. It’s the same with foreordination.
- Are men who have the priesthood the only ones who were called and prepared before coming to the earth?
- President Spencer W. Kimball said: “In the world before we came here, faithful women were given certain assignments while faithful men were foreordained to certain priesthood tasks. While we do not now remember the particulars, this does not alter the glorious reality of what we once agreed to.”
- How can we know what assignments we were given? (Prayer, blessings, patriarchal blessings, revelation, etc.)
To illustrate how the meaning of parts of a blessing may change as the years go by, tell the family you would like them to do the following exercise. Give each one a piece of paper and a pencil and ask them to write on the top, “You will do important work in the temple.” Have them write the numbers 15, 30, and 60 in a vertical line below this sentence. Have each person write the different meanings that this promise might have to a person aged 15, 30, and 60. After they have taken a few minutes to do this, ask each one to read what he has written. (Possible answers could be at 15—being baptized for the dead, at 30—doing endowment and sealing work in the temple, at 60—giving time and energy to family history research.)
Make cookies. Talk about how the cookies are foreordained to be cookies (when you choose to mix ingredients), but only if they go into the oven.

The Fifth Article of Faith (Children’s #125)
- As we learned last week, Alma and Amulek are teaching the wicked people of Ammonihah, specifically one named Zeezrom.
- One important thing they teach is about how the priests were supposed to act and the importance of living righteously when they held the priesthood. Many of these priests followed Nehor, who we learned about in Alma 1:3–6.
- What important things do we learn about the priesthood in these verses?
- How does the Priesthood point us to Christ? How can it help us be more like Him?
- Who is blessed by the priesthood being on the earth? (everyone, not just men)
- What are some priesthood ordinances? (Baptism, sacrament, temple)
How can I live worthy of priesthood blessings?

When I Am Baptized (Children’s #103)
- When we wash something, like dishes or the car. what happens?
- How do we feel when we are dirty? How do we feel when we become clean again?
- How is this similar to sin and repentance?
How can I be clean today?
He Sent His Son (Children’s #34)
- In this chapter, Alma and Amulek have finished teaching the people of Ammonihah. Some wanted to believe and be baptized. Others were angry and upset, especially the priests who were wicked.
- Alma and Amulek were tied up. Those who believed them were thrown into a fire. What did Amulek and Alma say about this?
- Later, the Lord delivered Alma and Amulek from prison. Why do you think the Lord saved them but not the righteous people from the fire?
- Why were Alma and Amulek given strength?
- Heavenly Father allows bad things to happen to good people to help them learn and grow. He also allows all of us our agency – to choose from right from wrong. Just like He won’t force us to be good, He won’t stop people from being wicked. But because of the Plan of Salvation, we know that death is not the end of life.
- Have we had a time where God has given us strength because of our faith?
How can I be faithful like Alma and Amulek?
Repentance (Children’s #98)
- After Alma and Amulek finished speaking and before they went to prison, Zeezrom believed them. (Remember, Zeezrom was the leader of the people who was trying to trick them and argue with them.)
- What do we learn from Zeezrom’s experience about the Lord’s power to strengthen and heal us, even when we make mistakes?
- What role can the priesthood play in our receiving His strength and healing?
- Watch “Zeezrom Is Healed and Baptized”
What should I do when I make a mistake?
I Know My Father Lives (Children’s #5)
- After Alma and Amulek left prison, Amulek had to leave his home and his family.
- What things did Amulek have to give up to be a disciple of Jesus Christ? What things did he gain?
- What are you willing to sacrifice to become a more faithful disciple of Jesus Christ?
What are some of the things I have gained by following Jesus?
