I want to start by sharing the main ideas for each of the different classes and home teaching. I like to share these because they will help you know what is being asked of you as a teacher or parent.

Question and Prompt Pages
The first tool I have for you this week for primary and Sunday school is your Question and Prompt pages. I talk about these every week. But if you are new here let me introduce you! These are the backbone of your lesson. Take these with you to class and use them as a guide to help you teach your class. These Q&P pages are actual questions and prompts with scripture references you can use in class. Start from the top and work your way through the whole lesson. They are designed to be engaging and really help you dive into what main ideas are being taught this week! Enjoy!
Family Ideas for Jan 20-26 Come Follow Me Lesson
This week for families I have a simple activity to do that will help you teach your family about being Armed with Righteousness and power. I created a set of illustrations of armor. You will give one set to each member of your family (or work on one together) you will then read 1st Nephi 14:12-1. Using the instruction page provided ask your families several questions pertaining to being armed with righteousness. Then you will write on the back of each piece of armor how you can be armed with righteousness and power. This idea comes from the following idea in CFM:
Why are we “armed with righteousness and with the power of God” when we live true to our covenants with God?

Sunday School Lesson Ideas Armed with Righteousness and Power of God
Lastly, I have a lesson idea for Sunday school teachers. I like to create interactive worksheets that really teach a single core principle for the week. This week I have chosen:
The Book of Mormon Teaches Plain and Precious Truths
I felt that this was an important topic and wanted to help bring this subject in to full view for your class. This is a set of 3 work pages. One is a quote from President Russel M. Nelson that is incredible. It lists the different ideas refuted by Th Book of Mormon. Bringing clarity to words we find in the Bible. Its so powerful and will lead an great discussion with your class as you work through the questions I have added to work pages in conjunction to this quotation by our prophet.
