Come Follow Me, Oct 14-20 "I Can Do All Things through Christ Which Strengtheneth Me"
Updated: May 5, 2020
Come Follow Me -For Primary page 157 "Show a picture of Jesus Christ, and share examples of him praying for someone (see Luke 22:32; 3 Nephi 19:21,23). What did Jesus ask for when he prayed for others?"
I thought is was a beautiful suggestion, and I loved the scriptures.
Print in sets of four the kids to put in their scriptures. I left the letters and frame black and white so they could get out some colored pencils, and add their own colors.
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 157 “ Help the children name some of their Church leaders, such as the Primary president, the bishop, and the President of the church. Explain that these leaders ask Heavenly Father to bless the children and help them live righteously. ”
Ideas for teaching this: they can pull a circle out of a bag, or hide them around the room.
They can also be used as a craft or coloring page. You can punch a hole in each circle and string them onto a string with beads or fruit loops to make it a sensory activity.
These come in Black and White so you or the child can color the pictures to look more like the actual people.
This is an idea from April Harker, and I really liked it too. Anything that helps teach the order of prayer is great. Her idea is to put the rectangles on your steps at home, and as you climb the steps you talk about how to say a prayer.
“ We give thanks to god and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you.” Colossians 1:3
April Harker gave me permission to put this on my Blog. They had a FHE teaching their little guy about the steps of prayer. When he got to the top, he gave Jesus's picture a kiss(:
Here is a Recycled activity that also teaches prayer with the Primary song.
Come follow Me- For Primary page 157 “Paul encouraged the saints to rejoice-even though they faced difficult trials and Paul himself was in captivity. How will you help the children see that living the gospel brings joy?”
Teaching ideas: If teaching a group of children explain scenarios, for each time you feed the lace through the card. Example: Sam is struggling making friends and a group of girls/boys at school are very mean to her/him. She/he has told the teacher, but still feels very lonely. When Sam prays he/she doesn’t feel so a lone. How can Sam rejoice?
Of course people being mean to her/him isn’t something that makes her/him happy. She/he can rejoice because of her/his faith in Jesus Christ. (Like Paul)
You can also use popsicle sticks.
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 157 “Ask the children to listen for repeated words as you read Philippians 4:4. Ask the children to show you what they might do when they rejoice. Help them to understand that to ”rejoice in the Lord” means to feel happy because they have the gospel and because Jesus Loves us.”
This can be used for both young and older children. Those with older primary children can have them look at the instructions and figure out how to do the folding themselves. Younger will like to make the child jump up with joy, but may need help getting to that point.
This would be so much easier if I had a youtube channel, but I'm not aloud to joke about that with my husband. Just him signing me up for this blog has changed his life(:
Here is a printable to help study Philippians 4:8
Come follow Me- for Primary page 158 “ Ask the children to name some things they can do to be ”rooted” in Jesus Christ. Each time a child names something, invite him or her to add a root (to the picture).”

This week she has a lot of great youtube videos that go along great with this lesson. She also has some cool pictures of the where the wind pulled out a tree with not good roots.
