The Book of Ether Chapters 1-5 are now being covered in the Come, Follow Me curriculum. This book is a record of the Jaredites who were an even larger civilization than the Nephite civilization. This book is a another witness that this land is the promised land and that there is an everlasting decree from God that those who inherit this land and serve God shall prosper and if they forget God or ignore God, they will be wiped off the face of the land. This is a lesson that was taught over and over again in the Book of Mormon, and this lesson is directly applicable to us in these last days since we are the blessed ones who have inherited the promised land. The stories in these chapters about the brother of Jared, his unparalleled faith, and their journey to the promised land can inspire us to become better in our own journey.
We here at The Red Headed Hostess specialize in creating resources for adults, teens, and children of all ages that help with scripture study and the Come, Follow Me program from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Our Come, Follow Me weekly kits coincide with the Individuals and Families manual but are also popular among Primary teachers, Sunday School teachers, Gospel Doctrine teachers and Seminary teachers. Each kit offers resources for all age groups so there will always be something you can choose from for yourself and whatever age groups your children are.
Our staff is made up of both current and retired full-time Seminary and Institute teachers with many years of professional training on how to effectively teach the Gospel. With our combined 10+ years in business, you can be confident that you are getting effective tools for your personal and family scripture study. See below for more information on the Ether 1-5 kit.
The part of each kit that is for adults and also for teens are the Study Pages. These are the foundation of each kit and one of the most popular things we offer. Our Study Pages are meant for your personal scripture study. They include the scripture text with suggested markings you can add to your own scriptures. Then in addition to that, they offer in-depth commentary, quotes, tips, and discussion questions that are great to use as part of your family scripture study or if you are teaching a class. All other items and activities in each kit are always based around the Study Pages so that they coincide perfectly with what you have been studying on your own. The Study Pages will give you confidence to then teach your family or class the scriptures.
Each kit has a lot of activities to choose from for all ages. Based on the age groups and the needs of your family, pick and choose the items you think will work best. There are many more things than you will have time to use, so just print the items you think will work best for you. Some items are easy print-and-go things, and other items can be used as part of your more dedicated family study when you have more time to dedicate to it. See some of the activities found in the Ether 1-5 kit below:
SCRIPTURE MARKING GUIDE FOR KIDS
There are items that you will always find in every kit each week and our Scripture Marking Guide for kids is one of those items. This is easy preparation for parents. Just print the guide and have you children go through each step in marking and learning important doctrines and principles found in that scripture. This will get your children directly into their actual scriptures and teach them how to effectively find and study important doctrines. The skills they will learn while using the marking guide each week will be skills they use their entire lives.
Another item in the kit every week are our Illustrated Stories. These illustrate each chapter, and under each illustration is an easy-to-understand for kids caption about what is happening in the illustration. Then there are great discussion questions you can use for older children and younger children. These can be printed or used on an iPad or tablet. Use them as part of a quick 5-minute bedtime story each night or use them as part of your main family scripture study.
See more items below that are specific to the Ether 1-5 kit.
