Be Thou Humble (Hymns #130)
- Alma saw the Zoramites saying prayers that were full of pride.
- There were some Zoramites who were poor and weren’t allowed in the churches. Alma said that these people were also “poor in heart.” What does that mean?
- What does it mean to be humble? (To make meek and teachable, or the condition of being meek and teachable. Humility includes recognizing our dependence upon God and desiring to submit to His will.)
- Have you had any experiences that have made you humble? What is humility?
- Take turns completing the sentence “I am being humble when I ______.”
How can I be humble today?
Faith (Children’s #96)
- We talked during FHE about how faith is like a seed. What do you remember about it?
- Watch Chapter 29: Alma Teaches about Faith and the Word of God.
- Try to push a seed (representing the word of God) into a stone (representing a prideful heart) and into soft soil (representing a humble heart).
What can I do to nourish my faith today?
A Child’s Prayer (Children’s #12)
- The Zoramites that were poor and didn’t have much money were sad because they weren’t allowed inside the churches. They didn’t think they could pray unless they were in a church.
- What did Alma and Amulek teach in these verses about prayer? Where can we pray? When can we pray? What can we pray about?
- Heavenly Father is always listening, no matter what.
What things can I pray about today?
Play the game Memory with these matching cards showing different situations where children are praying.
I Need My Heavenly Father (Children’s #18)
- Notice how many times Amulek used the words infinite and eternal to describe the Savior’s atoning sacrifice.
- Why is it important to know that the Savior’s Atonement is infinite and eternal?
- What is something we need every day? What would our life be without it?
- It’s the same with Jesus and the Atonement. What would our life be without Christ?
Summarize Alma 34:9–10 in one sentence.
Do this visual aid on why we need Jesus.
He Sent His Son (Children’s #34)
- Last week we talked about the Plan of Salvation. What do you remember?
- Alma tells the people that right now is the time for us to prepare to meet God. When will we meet God?
- Imagine that you want to participate in a marathon or a musical performance. What would happen if you waited until the day of the event to prepare?
- What things should we be doing to be ready? How will we feel when we see Him again?
- Some people might worry that they’ve already delayed too long and it’s too late to repent. What do you think?
What change can I make today to prepare to meet Heavenly Father?

Sunday Kids Activities for Come Follow Me 7/22
- Do this week’s free activity pages from Color Me Christian (or do them in the workbook if you purchased it from Amazon).
- Read Alma Teaches How to Pray and do the accompanying coloring page.
- Watch the video “Reclaimed“
- Read Michael John U. Teh, “Our Personal Savior,” Liahona, May 2021, 99–101.

- Read David A. Bednar “If Ye Had Known Me,” Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2016, 104.
- Read Alma 33:3–17. Zenos and Zenock lived in the times of the Old Testament, and their words were on the brass plates that Nephi got, but we don’t have them in our Old Testament. Why not? The Bible doesn’t have everything that every prophet ever said, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t scripture or important. It just doesn’t have everything we need. This is why it’s important to have the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and a living prophet. Do the Coloring Page: “I Love the Bible!”
- Do this activity: “Faith in Jesus Christ”. Make a path through your home that includes objects representing how you show and grow your faith in Jesus Christ.
- Color-by-number “Faith Is Like a Seed”
- Action poem “Faith Is like a Seed”
- Plant seeds and watch them grow according to this “Seeds of Faith” activity
- Make this booklet that shows how faith is like a seed
- Search the scriptures to learn more about prayer using this treasure map. Includes a message by President Eyring.
- Draw a picture of Alma’s teachings on how faith is like a seed.
- Draw a tree on a poster, and let the children add a leaf or a fruit every time they think of something they can do to help their faith in Jesus Christ grow throughout the week.
