CFM: The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me

Family lesson ideas while studying with little ones

Opening Song: I Am a Child of God

When Satan tempted Christ to turn a stone to bread, he challenged Christ’s divine identity by saying, “If thou be the Son of God” (Matthew 4:3, italics added). Why does Satan try to make us doubt our divine identities? How does he try to do this? (See also Moses 1:10–23.)

A fun "about me" poster project can help family members reflect on who they are and how they are each unique individual daughters and sons of God.

To prepare for His mission, Jesus went into the wilderness "to be with God".

Our family is BIG-BIGGY-BIG nature enthusiasts.  It's kind of a prerequisite of living in the PNW.  Depending on weather, we may just go out on a nature walk for our activity. 

If the weather is crummy I plan on having this scene playing in the background during our lesson:

It seems to always be in nature where people go for the most spiritual experiences: Christ when He fasted, Nephi, Enos, the brother of Jared, Moses, Joseph Smith.

Have you ever heard of "Earthing"?  Try and touch a piece of nature everyday.  Take your shoes off and lie in the grass.  Being more in touch with mother earth is a wonderful way to draw closer to your Heavenly Father.

When have you felt the Savior calling you to follow Him? How can you show the Lord that you are willing to “[forsake] all” (Luke 5:11) to follow Him?

I once gave a lesson for the Young Women where we discussed the Anti-Nephi-Lehites who covenanted with the Lord and buried their weapons in the earth.  I made them their own swords that they could make a personal promise with God and "bury" their sword.  I love the symbolism of letting go and giving yourself to Christ.

Closing Song: I Know Heavenly Father Loves Me
