“Years ago, a study established that for young men and women the influence of the Holy Ghost most often accompanies individual scripture study and prayer in the home. ” – Quentin L. Cook October 2018 Conference
Come Follow Me With Tweens
There are many valuable resources available to help you customize the Come Follow Me program to meet the needs of your family. Since half of my children at this point would be considered “tweens,” I have been giving my 9-12 year-year-olds an “assignment” each week.
These assignments are intended to help them become familiar with the scriptures including Joseph Smith Translation, the Come Follow Me manual, and talks given by General Authorities.
I try to keep it simple and “easy,” while focusing on important truths and drafting the questions in such a way that they will become confident in their abilities to find answers in the scriptures and other resources provided to them. I don’t pretend to be perfect, but this is how I have felt inspired to help my “tweens” benefit from the Come Follow Me Program.
I love the simple scriptures and doctrine that are taught in this Easter lesson. I decided I wanted my children to read a passage of scripture that tells a story they are familiar with, but then ask specific questions about it. I want them to increase their confidence in finding answers in the scriptures.
- Read about the appearance of the resurrected Christ in Matthew 28:1-10
- Answer the following questions:
- What were Mary and Mary doing in verse 1?
- What did the angel ask Mary and Mary to do?
- What happened when the women obeyed the angel?
We have purchased a Come Follow Me manual for my older children, and that is where they are asked to record the answers to their weekly assignments.
