Book of Mormon Come Follow Me FHE Lesson – They Were Called the People of God

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Alma the Younger’s conversion to Jesus Christ is a story of mighty change and forgiveness. This Book of Mormon FHE lesson helps teach the power of conversion and how we can strengthen our testimonies when we may not feel good enough. Our FHE lessons include three lesson plans for different ages, treat recipes, activity ideas, and more.



Mosiah 27:25-26

And the Lord said unto me: Marvel not that all mankind, yea, men and women, all nations, kindreds, tongues and people, must be born again; yea, born of Godchanged from their carnal and fallen state, to a state of righteousness, being redeemed of God, becoming his sons and daughters; And thus they become new creatures; and unless they do this, they can in nowise inherit the kingdom of God.



I Know My Father Lives | Hymn #302

1. I know my Father lives and loves me too.
The Spirit whispers this to me and tells me it is true,
And tells me it is true.

2. He sent me here to earth, by faith to live his plan.
The Spirit whispers this to me and tells me that I can,
And tells me that I can.




Begin the lesson with the following activity. Mix together 2 parts cornstarch to 1 part water. When this mixture is constantly worked with the hands and kneaded, it will act as a solid. When you leave it alone, it turns back into a liquid goo. Allow the children to mix the goo up and play with it so it turns firm. Tell them the goo represents their testimony and conversion to the gospel of Jesus Christ. If necessary, you can demonstrate the activity. Clean up quickly and begin the lesson.

Read aloud: Testimonies always need work. Some people think we are converted, or changed, because of Jesus Christ just once and that is it. But we need to keep trying all our lives. When we try, our testimonies remain strong, like the goo. If we stop trying, our testimonies grow weak.

In the Book of Mormon, Alma the Younger didn’t have a testimony at first. He went around telling people they shouldn’t believe in Jesus.

Ask: How do you think God felt about what Alma the Younger was doing?

Read aloud: God loved Alma the Younger, even though he was making mistakes. He reached out to Alma in a very powerful way. He sent an angel to tell him he was doing something wrong. Because of his experience, Alma began to believe in Jesus. He changed his life and became a great missionary.

Sometimes, we feel like goo. We don’t feel good about ourselves. God believes in us. If we believe in Him, we can do His work.

Ask: How can we work to keep our testimonies strong?

Finish the lesson with your testimony.


Begin the lesson by asking the following question: What does it mean to be converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ?

Read aloud: When we speak of conversion, we speak of a deep and lasting change. But it isn’t just a change in how we act or how we think. Our very nature changes. One of the most famous accounts of conversion is found in the Book of Mormon.

Read Mosiah 27:8-37 together. Before reading, ask everyone to pay attention to the gospel principles Alma the Younger was most touched by and what he did differently after he was converted. Discuss the answers to these questions together after reading.

Read aloud: Our own conversion stories are all different and are often much simpler and quieter than Alma’s. True conversion takes place over a lifetime and cannot be confined to a single event. Sometimes, as we are in the process of changing, we can become discouraged and disheartened. We can feel like we aren’t good enough.

Ask: What holds us back from being truly converted? How can we continue to focus on daily conversion throughout our lives?

Share any relevant personal experiences. Finish with your testimony.


Study Elder David A. Bednar’s message titled “Ye Must Be Born Again” and contemplate the meaning of becoming converted.
