Come, Follow Me 2022 Old Testament Resources and Insights: Moses 7

 Come, Follow Me 2022 Old Testament Resources and Insights: Moses 7,

 This post contains affiliate links. See the full disclosure.

I have loved studying the Old Testament so much so far this year! I have really had to dive in and be prepared, because I have started subbing as a seminary teacher. I have probably studied the Old Testament more this week, than I have in my entire life. The discussions we have had as seminary classes have been amazing. The discussions I have had with my family, so far have been amazing as well. I think it is because the Old Testament, testifies of Christ. We can bring Him into our discussions.

Last week, we discussed how prophets are seers, we learn about Enoch and though he felt inadequate he found trust in the Lord to fulfill his responsibilities. We discussed the important role of parents, in teaching their children the ways of God and we discussed how the Savior and His atonement is essential and central to God's plan.

This week, we discuss the perfect love of God and creating Zion. We talk about Enoch an how he converses with the Lord and has a vision. He sees the wickedness in the world and what happens when faith, repentance, baptism and the Holy Ghost are taught to the children of God. We discuss building Zion and how we should strive to be, “of one heart and one mind.”

Throughout this blog post you will find images I create daily, which I am offering as free printables. As well as, insights and links to resources to help with individual, family and even class room study. Remember to check back throughout the week as more printables and resources are added daily.

Day 1:

What a great quote! None of us are immune from difficult times, we all have our hard things. What I truly love about studying about Enoch, is that in difficult times he trusted in the Lord and his efforts were magnified and he was able to reach his potential.

I love this, because the same is true with us!!! Trusting in the Lord and having faith in Him is essential ♥️ I know with our any doubt in my mind of our Savior’s perfect love!! That love is for each and everyone one of us.

Here’s a great talk:

God Will Do Something Unimaginable

Day 2:

Love! Is love our motivating factor in serving others? The past two days I listened as youth shared ways they have served and ways they have been served, and in every instance they said that in serving they felt more love for the person they served and they felt cared about as they were served.

Service helps us be of “one heart and one mind” with those we interact with. It brings unity. We are invited by the Savior to follow His example and love and serve our neighbor. Which is EVERYONE.

My heart was truly touched as I listened to these youth share their experiences. I watched kindness in action in one of my classes. As I saw a student when we were gathered into small groups, notice her classmate sitting alone. She got up and kneeled at the desk and beckoned for her friend to come sit in her chair. That is what it’s all about!!! I was truly touched by her example 💖

Here’s a link to a great talk:

Day 3:

Everyone is called to the work of caring for each other! I’ve loved as we have studied about Zion, the fact that they cared for one another. There is something about service, something powerful!!

When we serve, I feel like we can’t help but be filled with more love and more unity. We start to see the people we serve, as Christ does!! I have found that service expands my heart and it makes me want to serve more and more.

A Zion people are people patterned after Christ. They are a people who continually strive to build their relationship with God. They are a people who truly care for the poor and needy around them and they are a people, who treasure their relationships with others. Who live both of the great commandments to love God and to love their neighbor.

I have thoroughly enjoyed studying and teaching about the process of creating Zion this week. ♥️ It’s something we can participate in every day, right now & it’s something we can’t do alone. We NEED each other 💕

Here’s a wonderful talk:

Day 4:

Unity takes work & we can’t do it alone!! It’s also worth all of our effort. Something I really love that has stood out to me as I have studied and taught this week is the fact that we all have differences and yet we really can still be unified, because we can find a commonality of purpose.

Our difference actually really help us in building Zion, because we are each given talents and abilities! The key is that we are using those talents and abilities to build up each other and use them to fulfill that common purpose.

This can be applied into so many different aspects of our lives. As I have thought about my own life, unity , that common purpose is so important in marriage, in family life, in the church as a whole, in our wards and communities, etc. I recently was called as Primary President, I know that striving for unity is so important in our presidency.

Unity takes patience, it takes relying on each other’s strengths and helping to support each other in our weaknesses. How important it is also to always include the Lord! To be united with Him ❤️

Bear with me this week!! I will be getting this week’s Come, Follow Me post up tomorrow. It’s been a crazy week with teaching seminary every day & getting situated in my new calling ❤️ Thank you for your patience, you guys are the best!

Here’s a great article:

Day 5:

I read this quote and it just spoke to my heart! Here’s the full quote, see if it speaks to your heart as well, “These vast, worldwide changes serve the designs of Almighty God. The gathering of His elect from the four corners of the earth is taking place not only by sending missionaries to faraway countries but also with the arrival of people from other areas into our own cities and neighborhoods. Many, without knowing it, are being led by the Lord to places where they can hear the gospel and come into His fold.”

Who is it in your neighborhood, who needs your friendship? Do you love your neighbor? Are we living what we believe. Will those who come in contact know that families are important to us, or that the Savior is?

Several years ago I was on a plane sitting next to a gentleman who was not a member of the church. When the Bountiful temple came into view, it sparked a conversation and he said, “Families are important to you guys, aren’t they?” Of course I said yes! He went on to tell me that, he knew that because of his neighbors. How they acted, showed that families are important.

I don’t think we realize the impact that we have on others. I also firmly believe that we cross paths in life with people we need to & when we do, I hope that we are in tune with the spirit, so the Lord can use us in gathering His elect 😊❤️

Here’s the talk I found this great quote from:
