I’m so excited to start studying the New Testament for Come, Follow Me in 2023. When we originally started the Come, Follow Me program four years ago it was all so new and I felt like there was so much trying to figure it all out.
Now that we’ve finished each of the standard works, I look forward to going through them all again. I love studying more about the life of Christ, so I’m excited for this coming year.
Keeping your family excited and on track with Come, Follow Me can have its challenges. Especially if you a variety of ages in your family, it can be tricky.
I’ve put together this list of 10 great resources you can use to help your family study Come, Follow Me in 2023.

This home-centered New Testament family bulletin board will help you and your family stay on top of Come, Follow Me AND the Chidlren and Youth program. I designed this so that it’s super simple – no changing out a bunch of things each week! Simply update the weeks scripture reading each week, and the other things as you feel like it.
New Testament Scripture Printables
These scripture printables are the perfect way to display scriptures from the New Testament around your home this coming year. There’s a card / poster for each week of the year and the scripture of the week comes from the Come, Follow Me lesson for the week.
These cards come in a variety of colors. There’s a minimalist option, a farmhouse style option and a colored option. A perfect choice for any home.
They come in both 4×6 and a small poster size. The 4×6 are perfect for handouts, sticking into a backpack or lunch box, or texting to family members. The poster size (8×10 or 8.5×11) are perfect for displaying around your home or on your family bulletin board!

Similar to the New Testament weekly scripture cards, these attributes of Christ cards coordinate with the Come, Follow Me family bulletin board. They come in a varitey of color and size options, just like the weekly cards do. Use thes around the house – they’re fun to stick on the fridge, a mirror, in a backpack or lunch box.

Each week includes a set of strips to stick into the jar, then choose one out to discuss each day. The prompts provided will lead to some great dinner time (or any time!) discussions.
These are available as a download to print out yourself. We have used this the past couple of years for Doctrine and Covenants and Old Testament and I have loved the discussions that got started around our dinner table!
