Come, Follow Me; Simply Family Home Evening FHE lessons: May 20-26 "Behold, Thy King Cometh"

The title for this week's Come, Follow Me lesson is "Behold Thy King Cometh." I'm so excited about the topics we get to study this week. Any time we talk about temples I get excited. Plus we get to talk about making wise and correct choices. (Which is so great because we just talked about the commandments a few weeks back.) We have some fun activity ideas for your family this week as you study Matthew 21-23; Mark 11; Luke 19-20; and John 12. (Whew! A little bit from every Gospel this week!) If you have a favorite activity we hope you'll share that with us in the comments or on our social media. We love hearing from you! So, enough chat - let's get into the lesson!

Explain along these lines that a hypocrite that does something just because it looks good, but doesn’t really mean it or someone who tells you to do something, but turns around and does the opposite.
Explain that have righteous desires means doing things because Heavenly Father and
Jesus have asked us to, and trying our hardest to do it correctly.
