Red Headed Hostess Weekly Scripture Kits

4.7/5

Recommended ages: 8-adult

BEST FOR:

Busy families, moms and teens who enjoy journaling.

 

PROS:

I was beyond impressed with the Red Headed Hostess subscription. It comes with EVERYTHING you need for the entire family: kids, teens, and adults!

 

There are options for if you have lots of time and want to get into scripture journaling; there are options if you have zero time and just need a prompt to get a family discussion started; and there are options if you just want to read something written down and prepared for you.

 

My absolute favorite part of the subscription are the table posters: these create an amazing spirit in our home and a consistent reminder to get in the scriptures! As an additional pro you get access to the Drawn In videos by David Bowman for free with this subscription!

 

CONS:

Weekly printing uses a lot of ink, but I’m saving each week’s printouts to put in a binder for sacrament meeting entertainment. 

Come Follow Me FHE Digital Subscription

4.5/5

Recommended ages: 2-12

BEST FOR:

Moms with littles at home who have a bit of extra time to prepare lessons + moms with kids who need variety!

 

PROS:

This subscription is FABULOUS for anyone whose kids thrive in different learning environments.

Each day the lesson uses a different learning method: hands on, field trip, coloring, puzzles, etc. 

 

CONS:

Requires prep time which could be hard for especially busy moms (but not impossible!). Uses lots of paper for single activities (a drawing page, puzzle page, etc) which is the only way to do it, but will use up your paper!

Drawn In Video Series

4.5/5

Recommended ages: 6-16

BEST FOR: 

Families with kids who like having fun.

 

PROS:

Drawn In is an incredibly fun way to help your kids get the “big picture” of what’s happening in Come Follow Me each week. David Bowman talks and draws (and sings!) you through the storyline of each week’s lesson and provides great insights on spiritual principles.  My kids love watching “Bro. Bo” every Sunday!

 

CONS:

This is a once-a-week study option. Also, David is incredibly hilarious (he sings and does hand puppets– my kids can’t get enough of it!) which may not work well for kids who are “too cool” to have that kind of fun. 

Love Pray Teach Family Plan

4.5/5

Recommended ages: 2-12

BEST FOR: 

Moms with littles at home who have a bit of extra time to prepare lessons.

 

PROS:

Great for having a specific plan of what to do on four days of the week— their lessons match exactly with the Come Follow Me curriculum topics.

Everything is provided for you with a step by step plan of what to say, read, and do. Perfect for if you want to do a great lesson but don’t have the brain space to plan for yourself!

 

CONS:

Covers four days of content rather than all 7 days of the week. This worked out perfectly for my family as it gave us freedom to do other things we wanted to do, but if you’re looking for something for all days of the week this does not have enough material. 

Come Follow Me Dinner Jar

4/5

Recommended ages: 8-88

BEST FOR:

Families with older kids and adults who are already doing Come Follow, Me study on their own.

 

PROS:

If you’re tired of talking about Minecraft at the dinner table this is a great option! Each week you fill your dinner jar with a new set of questions to discuss that align with the principles from that week’s Come Follow Me.

 

CONS:

This is not a complete study option since no scripture references are included. My family sometimes wasn’t sure how the principles we were discussing related to Come Follow Me, but it still started worthwhile conversations!

What I'm Doing in My Family

Our family uses a combination of:

 

Each Sunday I print out the table posters and art study from The Red Headed Hostess.  I put these in a stand up clear poster holders like these ones from Amazon.  I put these around in our kitchen/dining room where my kids will see them. 

 

Sunday nights our family watches the Drawn In video for the week. 

 

Monday through Friday each family member chooses one of the devotionals from One Minute Scripture Study in the Old Testament and “leads” family scripture study. 

 

Saturdays we often use YouTube for our scripture study.  There are fantastic weekly Come Follow Me videos from:
