Lesson 1: How we got the Book of Mormon

We just moved to Pennsylvania and most of our stuff is in storage while our home is being built for the next 3 months. So my copy of Book of Mormon stories is in a box somewhere. I just went to Lds.org and found the digital copy HERE. I printed it off and now I can keep all of our pictures and drawings with this lesson. I'm going to make a scripture study binder and keep it all in there. I think it will be so funny for the kids to see as they get older. We can laugh about all their pictures. They are pretty cute! : )


(Notice the top right picture. It's Joseph Smith holding a Book of Mormon couldn't you tell?!)

I followed my steps like I explained in the previous post HERE.

1) Explain : I told the story to them and I make them repeat me if it's a name like JOSEPH SMITH or ANGEL MORONI. And I ask questions along the way to see if they know. Like I said who visited Josep and my five year shouted "JESUS and GOD!"

2) Draw:  I told them to draw a picture about what we just learned. I gave suggestions " you can draw Joseph Smith, or Jesus and Heavenly Father visiting him, or Angel Moroni. Or maybe the Book of Mormon in the Hill"

3) Smash book picture: I drew numbers and pictures to make it easy for them to tell the story and remember important details.

4) Game: There was a game online on LDS.org it was a puzzle. My kids love puzzles! They had so much fun doing it! You can find the link to the Joseph Smith one HERE.

Here are a few pictures of our fun Lesson that took maybe 20 minutes from start to finish!

    1. Yes Mormon's believe in the bible. We read the Bible and study it all the time at home and at church. We also believe in the Book of Mormon which is another testament of Jesus Christ.
