7 New “Come, Follow Me” Resources for 2020

by | Jan. 03, 2020

With Come, Follow Me entering into its second year of study, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints can find new study material and resources to aid in their Book of Mormon study. 

The Sunday School general presidency recently introduced additional resources in Church News.

Hymns and Songs for Family Scripture Study

In the appendix a list of “Suggested Music for Families” includes a song from the Children’s Songbook or a Hymn that coordinates with the lesson. For example, with the study of 2 Nephi 31-33 which contains the Doctrine of Christ, the appendix suggests the song, “When I Am Baptized.” 

Aligned Curriculum for Youth

In seminary, Young Women, and Aaronic Priesthood classes, youth will be studying the Book of Mormon alongside the Come Follow Me curriculum.  One example of this is when the curriculum focuses on 1 Nephi 1-7, the lesson outline for Young Women and Aaronic Priesthood is “Why are Marriage and Family Important?”

Book of Mormon Videos

Over the last several months, the Church has released new Book of Mormon videos that detail the accounts contained in the Book of Mormon. Brother Milton Camargo, first counselor in the Sunday School general presidency, told Church News the videos “will help many families to see the Book of Mormon was a reality.”

Prophetic Promises

The introductory materials section has been expanded to include prophetic promises. “Latter-day prophets have made promises about the power of the Book of Mormon since The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was restored,” the section reads. “Ponder the following statements, and review them regularly. Which of these blessings would you like to receive? As you read the Book of Mormon, consider recording and sharing with others how these promises are fulfilled in your life.”

Recognizing the Witness of the Spirit

A section in the appendix called “How Does the Spirit Witness to Me That the Book of Mormon Is True” discusses Moroni’s promise with the Book of Mormon, that the truth of the book will be made manifest through the Holy Ghost. The section details different ways the Holy Ghost can provide this manifestation.

Truths Taught in the Book of Mormon

Also in the appendix, a section called “Plain and Precious Truths” details the teachings of the Book of Mormon.

“The Book of Mormon reveals eternal truths that were lost during the Apostasy and adds a second, clarifying witness to many truths taught in the Bible,” the section reads.

The section lists out topics like the Plan of Salvation, prophets and revelation, priesthood, marriage and family, and more. Scriptures accompany each topic.

Background on the Three Witnesses

The appendix also includes additional information on the Three Witnesses, Oliver Cowdery, David Whitmer and Martin Harris. The section includes powerful statements of their testimonies of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon.
