2013 Gospel Learning Plan-4th Quarter

The past three weeks,I have been sharing the Gospel Learning plan for 2013 that we are using in my family. I have shared the first quarter,second quarter, and the third quarter with you thus far. You can find the links to those articles at the bottom of this one.

To catch you up, we decided that for our family, we would concentrate on the new Youth Program, Come Follow Me,as the focus for our home. We have chosen a scripture for our family to learn each month and a song for each week of the year. We will read, discuss, and master the scripture for the month and sing the song before we read our scriptures as a family each day. We have also planned our Family Home Evenings around these topics, and our son will teach that topic the third Monday of each month. This will allow him a couple of weeks to have Sunday lessons on the topic and let him glean information from those to prepare his Family Home Evening lesson each month. Since he will be going on a mission in a couple of years, we decided that for us, it would make sense to have the first lesson of each month be from the Preach My Gospel manual. My husband will be teaching those lessons each month. The other two weeks will be taught by me. One will focus on a General Conference talk that goes with that month's youth theme. The other week will focus on a scripture hero from one of the scriptures or is found in church history. If we have a 5th Monday, we will do a service project as a family.

I thought you might want to see what we are doing month by month. I will be posting our plans by each quarter of the year over the next couple of weeks. That way you aren't overloaded all at once, and it makes it more manageable here on the website. Today, I am going to share the 4th Quarter of the year with you.

If we had younger children in the home, we would use one of the weeks to focus on the Primary theme for the month, and we would make sure that the Primary Program songs were included in our weekly songs. In any case, this will give you a start if you are interested in doing something like this for your own family, and you can adapt it to fit your own family needs.
