Come, Follow Me Made Easy for Families!
- 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.The first part of the lesson for this day will focus on what your family has learned this year about Jesus Christ. The second part is learning more about Mary, Joseph, the Shepherds, and the Wisemen. There is an article and song to go with each person. We've also included a Nativity that your children can color and cut out!
- Printables Include:
- Nativity Ornament for opening activity
- Nativity cut-outs in color
- Nativity coloring page
- 4 Cards - Mary, Joseph, The Shepherds, and the Wiseman - that include an article to read and a song suggestion
- Days 2-7: should take about 10-15 minutes (sometimes longer depending on your family.) This week will be a little different than normal weeks. We want your life to be simplified during this busy Christmas season. I was very touched by the Christmas Devotional on December 8th and the call to simplify during Christmas - only doing those things that will truly help us come closer to Christ. I have created a 10 day advent with 10 names of Christ ornaments. Each ornament has a name on one side and then a scripture and question on the back. Many of these questions and scriptures came from this week's lesson in the manual. We have also included a tree to print if you'd like to put them on a tree. Hang on your wall for a beautiful display!
- Printables Include:
- 10 ornaments that include 10 names of Christ on one side and a scripture and question on the other (Color and black & white are included)
- Christmas tree to put the ornaments on - 8 pages so you can print at home
- 24"x36" Christmas tree that you can have printed at Staples as an "engineer print" for another option
- QR Codes: This week's lesson contains several QR codes:
- To use the QR Codes: You will scan the QR codes using your phone or iPad. The best way to figure out if your device can read QR Codes is to open your Camera app and point it steady for 2-3 seconds towards the QR Code you want to scan. Whenever scanning is enabled, a notification will appear. If nothing happens, you may have to go to your Settings app and enable QR Code scanning. If QR Codes isn’t an option in your settings, your device unfortunately can’t scan QR Codes natively. But don’t worry, this only means you’ll have to download a third-party QR Code reader app. If your camera isn't working on the QR code, just go to your APP store and download a QR Scanner app. Then follow the instructions within the app.
- If you're not printing the main page, the QR codes are also clickable links! Open the PDF in your computer, click on any of the QR codes, and they will take you to the website.
