Come, Follow Me Book of Mormon: Apr 20-26 Mosiah 4-6 from Simply Family Home Evening
Preparation: Print out the poem from the Friend (February 2014) and gather some rocks and pebbles to stick in your kids’ shoes and pockets.
Opening Song: “As I Have Loved You,” pg 136
Scriptures: Mosiah 4:1-11
Lesson:  
Write the word forgiveness on a piece of paper.
Read Mosiah 4:1-2
As you read verse 3, have your kids listen for words that describe the blessings that come when we repent and receive forgiveness.
Collect your pebbles or rocks and read the poem from the February 2014 Friend. As you read the first half of the poem, help your kids fill their shoes and pockets with the pebbles.
Ask your kids how this would feel to walk around with all the time. Do they think it would get heavier over time? Is it comfortable to walk around with these rocks and pebbles weighing them down?
Finish reading the poem, and as Malcolm removes rocks and pebbles from his shoes and his pockets, have your kids do the same. How do they feel now? Do they feel lighter? More comfortable? Tell your kids that this is how it feels to forgive and to repent.
Bear your testimony about the power of repentance in your life.
