“Come, Follow Me Activities,” Friend, Jan. 2024, 28–29.
For Introductory Pages of the Book of Mormon
The Book of Mormon was first written on gold plates. The people who saw the plates wrote that they knew it was true (see the Testimony of Three Witnesses and the Testimony of Eight Witnesses). Write or draw your own testimony of the Book of Mormon and put it in your scriptures.
For 1 Nephi 1–5
The scriptures are a great treasure (see 1 Nephi 5:21). Draw some gem shapes on paper and cut them out. Ask each person to write a Book of Mormon scripture on the gems. Mix up the gems and take turns choosing one and reading each scripture.
For 1 Nephi 6–10
The Lord told Nephi to make another set of plates for a special and wise purpose (see 1 Nephi 9). Make your own set of plates out of folded paper or pieces of cardboard. (You can even wrap your paper or cardboard with aluminum foil!) Write or draw what you learn from the Book of Mormon on your plates.
For 1 Nephi 11–15
Read the scripture story about Lehi’s dream on page 26. Now draw a tree. Have each family member add a leaf to the tree and say one thing that Heavenly Father has given us that shows He loves us.
