This week, the Come, Follow Me curriculum covers Mosiah 18-24. These chapters are so amazing and loaded with doctrine and principles that everyone needs to know. Our weekly kit for Mosiah 18-24 brings these chapters to life and helps you and your family grasp those important doctrines and principles by making them applicable to everyday life. Our weekly kits coincide with the Come, Follow Me Book of Mormon curriculum from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Our kits are geared towards the Come, Follow Me for Individuals and Families manual but are also perfect for the Primary and Sunday School manuals. Our kits are popular among Gospel Doctrine teachers to Sunday School and Primary teachers. Since each kit has things for all age groups, there is something for everyone. The Study Pages offer great insights for adults and teens and all the various activities in each kit will help older and younger children be a part of the conversation as well. With the commentary and material in our weekly kits being created by retired and current seminary and institute teachers, you can be sure you are getting the very best for you and your family’s study. Every kit has many different options to choose from which gives you as the parent room to receive inspiration for your family and pick what you think is best to study or use each week. Simply print the items you want to use each week instead of printing the entire kit. That will help you save on paper and ink.

The study pages are the highlight of each kit and are by far the most popular item among our customers and subscribers. All other content in the kit is created after the study pages are done so that those activities can coincide perfectly with the doctrines and principles being taught in those chapters. We could fill page after page of the great compliments and positive reviews from our subscribers have given us about how these study pages have helped them and their families. They are meant to turn you into the expert on the chapters so you can then teach your family with confidence and effectiveness. Reading through these will help you decide what is best to cover as a family that week based off your family’s particular needs. Each study page has the text from the Book of Mormon in the left column with suggested scripture markings you could add to your own scriptures and the right column has professionally written commentary, insights, applicable quotes and more. Our kits offer a lot of different things, but each week the study pages are a must and if they are the only thing out of the kit you decide to use, it will still be worth your time and investment.
Families with younger and older children will LOVE the illustrated stories in each kit, also known as “Bedtime Stories.” Each story in Mosiah 18-24 is illustrated then there are great discussion questions for each story geared for very young children and also older children who can handle a more advanced question. These are great to print off at the start of the week and then keep handy for your bedtime routine. Each story can be taught or reviewed in just a few minutes each night. Or you can use these as part of a more structured study instead of at bedtime. Whatever you think works best for you and your family. These are great because they give you as the ‘parent/teacher flexibility.’ As you go through the Book of Mormon, you can print these and add them to a binder; then add to your collection as the year progresses.
Each of our weekly kits offer collectible cards. These are a tool to help your children develop a consistent desire to study their scriptures and do Come, Follow Me. The idea is that your child earns new cards each week and adds to their collection. To earn a card, you answer the questions on the back which are usually covered in the illustrated stories. After you print them, they are the same size as a traditional trading card so they fit in the clear plastic trading card sleeves perfectly. Instead of a binder of sports cards, they will have a binder full of Book of Mormon cards that represent all of the progress they have made throughout the year. It will be something your children are proud of because they earned each card. Also, you as the parent/teacher can turn to random cards to review by having your child tell you the story on that card. The feedback we have received about the collectible cards has been amazing and they are a favorite among parents.
Getting kids into the actual scriptures can often be challenging. Kids can get bored with them or feel like they don’t understand the scriptures. Our Scripture Marking Guide for kids will help you solve this problem. Each Marking Guide will get your kids directly into the scriptures and help them mark, discover, learn, and apply the scriptures to their own lives. Your children will want to do these marking guides because they can earn a collectible card after they complete it. You can see from the picture above, the marking guide for Mosiah 18-24 helps your children learn what it means to take upon themselves the name of Christ. It teaches what it means to keep the commandments and it teaches what it means to serve the Lord. These marking guides are not just simply telling them markings to make in their scriptures, but helping them know the meanings and principles behind things that should get marked for later contemplation. Things that are important to know and apply. If your child can read, then they can do these marking guides. If your child is just learning to read, you may have to help them through the guide a little but it will still be a very valuable tool for you as a parent/teacher.
ACTIVITIES SPECIFIC TO MOSIAH 18-24
This Map and Timeline Activity is specific to this Mosiah 18-24 kit and is awesome! Each kit will have unique things for that kit, along with our regular items found in all kits. The Book of Mosiah can be a little difficult because of all the overlapping timelines in that book. It can get complicated for families to understand and follow. We created this map and sticker activity to help you follow all these different timelines. The great thing is, it can all be printed from home. The map prints out on three regular sized 8.5×11 sheets of paper. If you cut the margins that your printer leaves off the center page, then the image will align perfectly against the other two pages on each side. Just tape the pages together to create your map. All the stickers can be printed on regular paper and cut out and pasted with a glue stick onto the map. Or if you have full page sticker paper, you can print on that and just cut out each sticker. This activity isn’t just for kids. Any adult or teen who has a hard time following the timelines in the Book of Mosiah will appreciate working through this activity with their children.
