Our latest kit for Come, Follow Me Book of Mormon Alma 5-7 turned out great and there are so many valuable tools for you to pick from for you and your family that will help you study and learn these amazing chapters. Our weekly kits coincide with the Come, Follow Me curriculum from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Our weekly kits are designed to go with the Come, Follow Me for Individuals and Families manual but there are so many different options to choose from that our kits are also great for the Come, Follow Me Sunday School and Primary manuals. Each kit has options for all ages, from adults to young children. For adults/parents/teens, there are the Study Pages which are designed to help you study and learn the scriptures so you can teach your family with confidence and effectiveness. For teens, older children, and younger children, there are various activities to choose from and print each week. Each kit has many options to choose from, much more than you will likely be able to use in a week’s time. The intention of our kits is to not try and get through every item but to choose what you think is best for your family and only use those items. Printing only the items you think are best for your family will also save on ink and paper compared to printing the entire kit, 40-60 pages on average. Each kit is created by professional current and retired full-time seminary and institute teachers and has an average of 150 hours put into creating it. You can be sure that you are getting quality, effective, and relevant content with every weekly kit from The Red Headed Hostess.
Each kit offers weekly study pages for the chapters being covered in the curriculum for that week. These study pages are the main item in our kits and we recommend that they be used every week as part of your personal scripture study. These can also be used as the main help in our kits for your teenagers as well. These Study Pages are designed to make Mom and Dad scripture scholars with relevant commentary, quotes, tips, etc. so that you can teach your family with confidence. Each page has actual text from the Book of Mormon in the left column with suggested scripture markings and tips you could add to your own scriptures as you study. The right column offers commentary, tips, quotes, insights, etc., written by professional current and retired seminary and institute teachers. All other items in each kit are created AFTER the Study Pages so that they can correlate perfectly with what you study. That will help you better pick and choose which items from the Activity Pages you think will be best to use with your family. Many of our customers subscribe just to get access to these pages. These are also popular among Gospel Doctrine and Sunday School teachers.
The Activity Pages portion of each kit is loaded with many things to choose from. Two of the most popular are the Illustrated Stories (Bedtime Stories) and the Collectible Cards. These items come in every kit and can be used either together or separately. The Bedtime Stories have illustrations of the stories covered in the chapters with good discussion questions for older children and younger children. These stories put the scriptures into more simple, easier to understand terms for young children. They are easy to print and keep as part of your bedtime or study routine. The Collectible Cards print the same size as traditional trading cards and can be kept in clear trading card sleeves. On the back of each card are questions and on the front illustrations. Having your child answer the questions on the back about the illustration/story on the front will earn them the card. The illustrations and questions coincide frequently with the Bedtime Stories which is how they can be used together. The Collectible Cards are a fun way for your children to earn rewards as they continue through Come, Follow Me each week. They are also a great way for parents to review. Just pick a random card from their collection and have your child tell you the story on that card.
You can use this video trivia page to help engage your children as they watch the Alma 4-7 Book of Mormon Video produced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Have them circle words and phrases they hear as they watch the video.
This is an engaging activity for kids that will help them learn what it means to receive the image of Christ on their countenances. This can be printed early on in the week and used throughout the week by hanging these illustrations somewhere they will see them everyday.
You can invite each child to prepare a mini talk about the Atonement of Jesus Christ and how he suffered for them. Teens can prepare the talk on their own but younger children can use the template provided. They can pick a picture of Christ to display or use the color-by-number sheet to use as their picture of Christ.
We always include coloring pages that coincide with the Come, Follow Me lesson. They are great for very young children to keep their attention and still allow them to be part of the conversation since they will be coloring relevant pictures to your discussion.
Each kit offers a Scripture Art Print. Print this and hang it in a central location in your home so that everyone can keep the current Come, Follow Me chapters on their minds throughout the week.
These scripture Glue-Ins are included in every kit. These are illustrations that can be cut out and glued into your scripture margin next to the corresponding story. Once inserted, they will turn like a regular scripture page.
Our Scripture Marking Guide for kids is always a favorite and these marking guides are included in every kit. The underlying goal of our products is to get individuals and families directly into the actual scriptures. Our Study Pages do that for adults and teens but these marking guides can do that for younger and older children. If your child can read, they can follow the step-by-step instructions in these guides. If your child is too young to read, they will need some help from Mom and Dad but this is still a useful activity. Each guide teaches doctrine, principles, scripture study skills, and more. These are not just busywork telling your child where and what to mark. There are reasons behind each marking that your child will learn. Your child will learn how to navigate their scriptures and learn how to study and find important doctrines. We have received countless reviews from parents about how effective these are for their children.
Our weekly kits are easy to get with two options to choose from. You can purchase each kit as needed individually HERE for $4.00 each.

Throughout the year, we offer free files to monthly subscribers as bonuses. Things like Scripture Page Titles, things for General Conference, printable booklets, are some of the items we have given away this year. One of the free bonuses we offer is a streaming video service called “Drawn In” by David Bowman. Each week, David creates fun and engaging videos for kids that coincide with the chapters being covered. David is a professional artist and retired Seminary teacher. As you listen to David tell the stories, you watch him draw them out at the same time. These are a great supplement to your main scripture study done throughout the week.
