Devotionals for Come Follow Me 9/7

Remember that these are guidelines for you to use in your daily Come, Follow Me 9/7 devotionals!  Please don’t feel as though you have to use every single question, journal entry, or activity.  Just make sure you look at the activity in advance so you can gather any materials they may require.

Here is a general outline for each devotional for Come Follow Me 9/7:

  • Start by singing the song together and saying a prayer
  • Read the scripture together, then your family can have a discussion using the questions/comments provided.
  • Copy the journal entries into a spiral notebook.  The child or the parent can write the question at the top, after which the child can write or draw an answer.
  • Have fun together doing the activity as a family!

Modifications for older children for Come, Follow Me 9/7 daily devotionals:

  • Explore the footnotes for each of the scriptures listed
  • Ask additional discussion questions found in the Personal Study section of Come, Follow Me – For Individuals and Families for Come Follow Me 9/7
  • Instead of answering the journal entry with a drawing, you can create a study journal (a simple spiral notebook will work) to answer the question with a few sentences or paragraphs, depending on the child’s age.

Thursday Devotional

Song

f

Scripture

3 Nephi 2:11–123:1–265:24–26

Discussion

  • One of the results of the wicked people was the Lord no longer protecting them from the Gadianton robbers. These robbers made the people have to leave their homes and gather in one place to be safe.
  • We don’t have to leave our homes, but we face spiritual dangers. What did the Nephites do? What can we do to be safe?
  • Gathering together as Saints is important. We strengthen each other.

Activity

Take a pencil or a stick and ask the child to break it (or break it yourself if they aren’t strong enough) by snapping it in half. Do that 10 times. Now take 10 pencils and try to do it at once. Show how we are stronger together than apart.

Journal Entry

What can I do today to be protected from spiritual danger?

Friday Devotional

Song

Love One Another (Children’s #308)

Scripture

3 Nephi 5:12–267:15–26

Discussion

  • Mormon said he was a disciple of Jesus Christ. What does it mean to be a disciple of Christ? (Doctrine and Covenants 41:5)
  • Mormon interrupted the story of the Nephites to say he was a disciple. Then he told of Nephi, another disciple.
  • How can we be disciples like these men were?
