We are all loved children of God. Paul wanted the Romans to know that they could overcome sin and evil through the goodness of God. In this Come Follow Me FHE lesson, you will learn more about the love of God, how to hear the word of God, and what eternal blessings we have been promised. Our FHE lessons include three lesson plans for different ages, treat recipes, activity ideas, and more.

Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
1. I feel my Savior’s love
In all the world around me.
His Spirit warms my soul
Through ev’rything I see.
He knows I will follow him,
Give all my life to him.
I feel my Savior’s love,
The love he freely gives me.
2. I feel my Savior’s love;
Its gentleness enfolds me,
And when I kneel to pray,
My heart is filled with peace.
3. I feel my Savior’s love
And know that he will bless me.
I offer him my heart;
My shepherd he will be.
4. I’ll share my Savior’s love
By serving others freely.
In serving I am blessed.
In giving I receive.
