Come, Follow Me; Simply Family Home Evening FHE lessons: June 10-16 "Not as I Will, But as Thou Wilt"

This week we are learning a lot about the sacrament. The title of the lesson in Come, Follow Me is "Not as I Will, but as Thou Wilt" and we are reading Matthew 26; Mark 14; Luke 22; and John 18. I am so so excited to talk about the sacrament. We have really been working on our reverence during the sacrament in our family. I am excited to really spend some time discussing it this week and giving my kids a purpose behind the "please, please, please be reverent and think about Jesus" plea that I send down the pew every week! 😂

If this is your first time here, make sure to check out THIS POST which will give you an overview of the layout for our lessons.

After they have had a couple of minute so think about it, let them share if they want to. Then show the picture of Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane. Tell them how Jesus Christ felt how scared, hurt, or sad they were when He suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane so that He would best know how to comfort them when they feel that way.

Get the long stick. Have your kids hold it horizontally and try to get through the door. Tell them that just like they can’t get through the door with that stick without some help, we couldn’t return to live with Heavenly Father without some help. Jesus Christ suffered in Gethsemane for our sins so that we wouldn’t have to, so that we could return to live with our Heavenly Father again.
