We here at The Red Headed Hostess specialize in helping you with your scripture study and giving you tools to teach your family the scriptures. Our weekly kits coincide with the Come, Follow Me schedule from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the kit shown in this article is for Alma chapters 36-38. Each weekly kit is unique and is designed to assist you in your efforts in Come, Follow Me Book of Mormon. Our staff is made up of current and retired full-time seminary and institute teachers who have had many years of training on how to teach the Gospel. You can be sure you are getting quality, effective material when you purchase a kit or enroll in our monthly subscription.
Alma 36-38 in the Book of Mormon teach us some very important things. In these chapters, Alma is giving advice and counsel to each of his sons. We learn how important it is to teach our children about Christ and that we should bear testimony and share our spiritual experiences with them. We also learn how important it is to study and truly understand what is in the scriptures and how they can affect generation after generation for good if they know what is in them. So much of what is happening in the world right now can also be found in the Book of Mormon, and this book of scripture can literally teach us how to recognize and handle the complex situations in the world today. It is a voice of warning and a compass to direct us in these latter days.
The main part of our weekly kits, and one of the most popular items, is our Study Pages. These pages include in-depth commentary, insights, quotes, tips, and great discussion questions you can use with your family or class. In the left column is the text from the scriptures with suggested markings you can add to your own scriptures, and in the right column is where you will find the commentary, tips, etc.. These pages are for adults and teens and should be used as part of your personal scripture study. Many people who do not even have children at home anymore enroll in our subscription just to get access to our Study Pages. All the other activities are created around the Study Pages which is why we recommend you read these each week. They will better help you understand the chapters, storylines, doctrines, and all the other activities that you can choose from in our kits to use with your children. Studying the scriptures in-depth, reading and studying every verse, is the legwork of Come, Follow Me and is where you will get the most benefit. These study pages are made to assist you in that effort. Once you know the scriptures, you can then teach them with confidence to your children and can personally tailor and customize your teachings to the needs of your family.
The Activity Pages portion of each kit contains tools for you to choose from to use with your family. The activities you have to pick from are for older children, younger children, and often things for youth. The youth should mainly be using the Study Pages though. Many items in the Activity Pages file will be there in every kit and some items will be custom to each kit. There will always be new and interesting things to pick from so your children don’t get bored. There are a lot of things to choose from in the Activity Pages’ file, much more than you will likely have time to use in a week’s time. The intent is for you to pick and choose which items you think are best for your family. We give you plenty of options so that you have that flexibility as a parent. Once you find the items you want to use, just print those items instead of printing the entire kit. That will save you on ink and paper from week-to-week. Each kit comes with detailed instructions with pictures explaining each activity so you can easily decide what to use instead of scrolling through the entire document to figure it out.
Our Illustrated Stories are items you will find in each kit every week. These are made for older and younger children and are perfect for a quick lesson during those times that you might not have much time to prepare. They include great questions you can ask your children to spark discussion. These have grown to be one of the most popular things in the Activity Pages portion of our kits.
Our Scripture Marking Guide for kids is another item that parents love. This gets your child directly into their actual scriptures. These marking guides teach doctrine, scripture study skills, principles, and engage your child. If your child can read, then they can do these guides or even help a younger sibling still learning to read. Just print the marking guide and let your child work on it while you make dinner.
