Our 7 day lesson plan follows right along with the Manual: Come, Follow Me for Families and Individuals--New Testament 2019" January 28-February 3 - Matthew 3; Mark 1; Luke 3 "Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord"
We have designed these packets to be used for families of ALL ages! There are activities and coloring pages for the little ones, and there are worksheets, discussion questions, and object lessons for older children and teens!
- Day 1: is a longer lesson and will take 30-60 minutes depending on how much your family likes to discuss! This will be similar to a traditional Family Home Evening. Begin with a prayer and choose a song if your family likes to sing. Sunday would be a great day to choose as Day 1, but pick which day works best for your family.
- Day 2: this week will take about 20 minutes. It includes a fun object lesson to teach your family about repentance!
- Days 3-7: should take about 10 minutes. We are calling these our "mini devotionals!" They can be guided by the parents, or assign a day to each member of the family. Choose a time to have your devotionals - breakfast, family prayer, driving around in the car - whichever works best for you! Have the person prepared to start the devotional and prepare any printables that you will be using. Not every day will have a printable or an activity. Some days are just discussion questions. Don't stress if you skip a day, just move onto the next or combine days! We encourage you, as parents, to study the suggested scriptures each week ahead of your family. This will help you be prepared to guide the devotionals and be ready for questions that are asked.
- QR Codes: This week's lesson contains 5 QR codes: One will send you directly to the LDS Media Library that contains all of the videos and talks for the week. Another code will send you to a fun Object Lesson on repentance. The other 3 will help give you additional insight into baptism, including a fun game! You can use your camera on your phone to scan the QR codes. The links are also included if you're not printing the lesson plan - just click on the name of the words next to the QR code and it will take you there!
Most printables include black and white versions!
