The Old Testament is filled with powerful stories containing powerful messages to help us in our latter-day lives. Abraham. Moses. Noah. Isaac. Lot. Rebekah. Yet, because it was written thousands of years ago, interpreting its ancient customs and cultures and hidden messages can feel almost overwhelming…and the thought of teaching those to our families can make it even more so!
Luckily, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has created fantastic Come, Follow Me: Old Testament curriculum for families and individuals around the world. Designed with personalized lessons, this curriculum is a tool to draw families closer together through their scripture studies. Each lesson touches on powerful scriptural insight, allowing us to explore the meanings as a family.
But what if you want a little more?
We’ve got your back.
The Our Turtle House App Team has created, not one, not two, but THREE different weekly resources to help you boost your Come, Follow Me: Old Testament studies. All are created with the intent of helping you get a little bit (or a whole lot) more out of your scriptures.
First of all, check out our Come, Follow Me Lesson Plans. These weekly lessons are designed with YOUR family in mind. Filled with ready-made activities and QR codes, these easy-to-follow lesson plans will make your Family Home Evenings a cinch! Print them off or use them on your cell phone/tablet…our lesson plans are beautiful either way. With Family Lessons, Teen Lessons, and Children’s Lessons, you can use any or all to fit your family’s needs.
Follow Him Podcast
Secondly: who doesn’t LOVE Hank Smith and John Bytheway!?! After only a year, the Follow Him Podcast has quickly gained momentum in the LDS podcast industry. Hundreds of thousands of listeners have collectively learned and laughed with hosts Hank Smith and John Bytheway as they interview jaw-dropping specialists, all of which bring exciting history and culture into the Come, Follow Me gospel study. Each week, two episodes (and sometimes three) are released with in-depth insight that puts the curriculum in a whole new light. You can watch/listen to Follow Him Podcast on both the Our Turtle House App as well as on our YouTube channel.
And, finally: Can’t quite get enough? The ByTheWay Podcast offers even MORE insight to the chapters of Come, Follow Me. Recorded by, you guessed it, John Bytheway, the ByTheway Podcast dives a little deeper into aspects of the curriculum that aren’t even touched on in the Follow Him Podcast. This podcast is sure to enhance your gospel study.
